Scouting report

by Dale Lolley

TEN RB Bishop Sankey - 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Bishop Sankey was one of the hot rookies in last year's fantasy drafts. And though he didn't put it all together last season, perhaps this is his year. After all, he got just 152 carries and 18 receptions. With rookie QB Marcus Mariota at the helm, the Titans might lean more on their running game.

Fantasy Downside
Sankey's best games were a pair of 61-yard efforts last season as he showed little of the explosiveness that made him such a coveted fantasy back.

Bottom line
Sankey finished last season with 569 rushing yards and two scores on 152 carries. While I expect him to be better this season, rookie David Cobb could eat into his playing time if he falters again. Sankey's going in rounds 9 or 10 in drafts this year, which is far worse than the 3 or 4 he was seeing in 2014. But he's worth stashing on your bench in the hopes of a breakout.

TEN RB Bishop Sankey - Week 17, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Bishop Sankey Week 17 vs. Colts
Bishop Sankey hasn't had the impact most felt he would coming into this season but did have 14 carries last week. He still managed just 44 yards, however. Even though the Colts provide a good matchup, Sankey's nothing more than a flex option, even if the coaching staff decides to give the rookie all the carries.

TEN RB Bishop Sankey - Week 16, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Bishop Sankey Week 16 vs. Jaguars
Three carries for eight yards, 1 catch for 18. That was Bishop Sankey's line from last week. Even against a Jacksonville defense he had his best game against back in Week 6 - 18 carries, 61 yards - you can't expect much from Sankey in a lost rookie season.

TEN RB Bishop Sankey - Week 15, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Bishop Sankey Week 15 vs. Jets
Bishop Sankey managed only 25 yards on nine carries last week and had just two yards on two receptions. He's not made nearly the splash expected of him this season and now faces a very tough Jets run defense that is giving up 3.5 yards per carry. Take a pass here unless you are totally out of options.

TEN RB Bishop Sankey - Week 14, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Bishop Sankey Week 14 vs. Giants
Bishop Sankey has gotten 11, 10 and 10 carries in the past three games. He managed 42 yards on his 10 carries last week but failed to catch a pass. The Giants' run defense is pretty soft and has given up 10 rushing touchdowns, though none in the past three weeks. With the Titans banged up at receiver and rookie QB Zach Mettenberger hurting as well, Sankey should get more than 10 carries. But he's nothing more than a low-end starter or flex play.

TEN RB Bishop Sankey - Week 13, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Bishop Sankey Week 13 vs. Texans
Bishop Sankey got just 10 carries last week, putting up 37 yards. The rookie hasn't gotten more than 16 carries since Week 7 due to the Titans being behind most of the time. There's no reason to think Sankey is going to suddenly turn into a big fantasy producer. Use him only as a very low-end No. 2 back or flex play.

TEN RB Bishop Sankey - Week 12, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Bishop Sankey Week 12 vs. Eagles
Bishop Sankey got just 11 carries for 38 yards last week against the Steelers but did score his second touchdown. The Eagles have given up a rushing touchdown to an opposing running back in three of the past four games and haven't been good defending running backs against the pass. Sankey should be a low-end No. 2 starter or sold flex play this week.
