Titans Beat: 'Easy to envision' Bishop Sankey as primary ball-carrier

The Tennessean - [Full Article]

When the regular season arrives, it's easy to envision Titans RB Bishop Sankey as the primary ball-carrier because his all-around skills will make it tough to keep him off the field.

Fantasy Impact: 

We’re projecting Sankey to be the clear RB1 in Tennessee after the Titans took him as the first back in the draft. He’s a versatile back who doesn’t have much competition for touches. The last 13 rookies who were the top drafted RB in their class and joined a backfield with a lackluster incumbent averaged 18.2 touches for 83.1 yards and 0.55 TD, or 11.6 fantasy points per game. That’s about what Ryan Mathews averaged as the #12 RB in 2013. Our only real concern is HC Ken Whisenhunt force-feeding Shonn Greene and/or Dexter McCluster to fill certain roles in his offense.
