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.
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.
