ESPN - [Full Article]

The Titans rank 16th in the NFL with 107.6 rushing yards a game. That’s up from 90.4 in 2014.

That’s a nice improvement, but it doesn’t warrant the continued support of the running back committee from Ken Whisenhunt.

Let’s face it, the Titans are using a committee, not because they they want to but because they have to. Few backs are absolute bell-cows anymore.

But certainly a foundational back demands more than 29 percent, which is the share of the load Titans leading rusher Bishop Sankey has gotten.

Perhaps game to game the Titans can put a different back at the head of the line. Perhaps once David Cobb returns from IR/designated to return in a few weeks they will be adding a better option.

It’s time to give the top back on a given Sunday closer to 20 carries than 10.

Fantasy Impact: 

Terrance West had 13 carries back in Week 1 and that was the most any back has got in a game this year the story said.
