Nashville Tennessean - [Full Article]

Whether the problem was with Bishop Sankey or the offensive line, the Titans’ running game came under plenty of criticism after the preseason opener.

But a re-shuffled offensive line opened bigger holes and Sankey looked a better runner as the Titans beat the Rams 27-14 at Nissan Stadium on Sunday.

Sankey, who was held to 15 yards on eight carries against the Falcons last week, ran six times for 45 yards against the Rams — including gains of 18 and 19 yards.

“The line was doing really well initially making holes, and I was just hitting the holes,” Sankey said. “This week, the big emphasis was (running backs coach Sylvester Croom) telling us to just hit the hole and not hesitate — and when I see a crease, hit it.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Sankey is a bit of a forgotten man in drafts this year, mostly because of rookie David Cobb starting to get a lot of press. But it's also because of the Titans poor offensive line. If that part of the Titan offense can come together, Sankey could be a guy to take a shot on as he falls in drafts.
