Bishop-sankey
Mike Mularkey said Bishop Sankey will be more involved Week 17 against the Colts.

BS

Pyro's take: “I feel like at times I lost faith in the coaches here, and I have been trying to do everything I can to gain it back,’’ Sankey said. “Since then I have been doing everything I can to try and gain it back and try and make a statement when I am out there on the field.

“It hasn’t hurt my confidence. I know I am a good player, a good running back, and I just have to keep working and maintain the same approach each day and try and earn the trust back of the coaches.”

Titans interim coach Mike Mularkey said on Monday the plan is for Sankey to be more involved in the season finale against the Colts on Sunday.

“He did some good things for us, especially with the ball in his hands there at the end,’’ Mularkey said. “He’ll get more time, hopefully at least that many snaps.”

Bishop Sankey is a healthy scratch for Week 11.

BS

Pyro's take: Not to much to relate here, except that if you own him in any redraft league your can fire the escape hatch and let him go. His value for keeper leagues has diminished to almost nothing as well.

Mike Mularkey said RB Bishop Sankey could be inactive for Week 10

BS

Pyro's take: Every passing week it seems that Bishop Sankey sinks deeper into oblivion. He is not hurt and if he doesnt travel with the team, his days are numbered. Interesting that they decided to wave Charlie Whitehurst instead of Sankey, so there may be life yet.

Bishop Sankey played zero snaps Week 9 against the Saints.

BS

Pyro's take: Even though the coaching staff has changed, Bishop Sankey's role has not. In only his second season, Sankey has grown very friendly with the splinter's on the bench.

It will be interesting to see if Sankey will even be active when David Cobb returns, it appears that Sankey could be considered a draft bust.

Just Stung

Joe Fann, staff writer for the Tennessee Titans is reporting via twitter that Bishop Sankey avoided being concussed. "No concussion for @BishopSankey. Got a stinger. Arm went numb when he dropped the ball."

Pyro's take: Good news for Titans and fantasy owners stuck in purgatory starting this guy. He should be ready to go this weekend.

Counted On

Bishop Sankey will continue to be counted on as Shonn Greene touches are going to be limited, due to his hamstring injury.

Even though Sankey has had a great opportunity to turn this into being a reliable full-time back, he has failed at doing so. In three games Sankey carried 43 times for 152 yards, a 3.5-yard average. In the four games when both Sankey and Greene were part of the team's running back committee, Sankey averaged 4.7 yards a carry.

Sankey stated “I want to be more consistent as a running back,” he said. “I want to have more explosive runs and really just continue better pass protecting and obviously become more productive as the weeks go by."

Pyro's take: Bishop Sankey has a chance to be special, he has the talent to do-it-all on the field, but has struggled as most rookies do. Don't expect more than what he has given this season, and definitely holds more importance in PPR leagues than standard.

Three-Headed

The Jacksonville Jaguars are joining the Carolina Panthers, Tennessee Titans, and the St. Louis Rams,in going full-time with three running backs.

Since Toby Gerhart is still injured and will not play on Sunday, the Jaguars are going to rotate Denard Robinson, Storm Johnson and Jordan Todman into the lineup. Johnson was limited to 21 yards on 10 carries last week at Tennessee.

"We expect him to improve this week," Bradley said. "I think he’s had another good week of practice and in talking to him I think some of the anxiety [has been eliminated]. He’s played now, so hopefully we see more of a natural runner."

Pyro's take: Neither one of these four above running backs have done anything this season. Gerhart yards per carry is around the low 2.0 mark, and Storm Johnson failed last week, Neither Denard Robinson nor Jordan Todman are valued to be full-time backs.

Ignore this crew in your line-ups, and only play them in case of extreme emergency.

Looking for More

With Greene being doubtful, now is the time to shine for Bishop Sankey. Not only is Greene doubtful, but the Titans are facing the Jaguars, the stage is set, now its up to him. "I am looking forward to as many carries as they want me to have,'' Sankey said. "Depending on Shonn's situation, me, Dex and Leon are going to have to pick up some of the slack. I think we are capable of doing that, and I know everyone is excited."

Sankey has 150 yards and one touchdown on 32 carries. Last week against the Browns, he gained 27 yards on eight carries. "I am feeling a lot more comfortable with pass protection, and really just being more confident doing my job,'' Sankey said. "I am just going out there trying to move the chains, protecting the quarterback and securing the ball. I am feeling good, though."

Pyro's take: Its time for Bishop Sankey to shine, and if he can get it going this week against a bad defense, look for Whisenhunt to expand his role into a full-time back.

If you own him, and you have the space to start him, its the time.

Wiz on his feet

Bishop Sankey got it rolling in his brief time on the field against the Colts. Titans staff writer Joe Fann mentioned through his twitter account @Joe_Fann stated that Ken Whisenhunt was impressed with Sankey's foot work and should continue to get action. "Whisenhunt said Bishop Sankey's footwork is improving and will continue to get opportunities."

Pyro's take: If Sankey can continue to make progress with his feet, he will continue to see more action. Right now he is just a liability because his blocking skills are below average.

Keep him on your bench for now, but track his progression. Shaun Greene is not the answer for the Titans, but he can pick-up blocks.

Not in the clear

Bishop Sankey had his best game as a pro last Sunday, as he rushed for 60 yards on 10 carries, but Ken Whisenhunt is still not completely pleased with the effort. His attention to detail and focus needs work according to Whisenhunt. "If he can get the attention to detail better, his reps will increase." Sankey has 89 yards on 18 carries (4.94 YPC) through three games.

Pyro's take: The needle points upward for Sankey which is what you want from a rookie running back. Is he good enough to take over the starting role, and be a full-time back? No, but he is making progress to doing so.

Sankey getting known for being a fumbler

The sight of rookie running back Bishop Sankey running laps around the Titans' practice field has become too common for the team's liking at training camp.

Sankey, a second-round pick, runs a lap every time he fumbles during practice.

Sankey mishandled a fourth-quarter handoff from Zach Mettenberger, resulting in a turnover at the Titans' 30.

"I'm impressed with a lot of the things about Bishop, but he's a rookie, and a lot of things that are causing these problems are things that he needs time with and he's got to get better at — whether it's footwork, whether it's how he's taking the balls on handoffs, understanding the protections," coach Ken Whisenhunt said, noting that Sankey missed the first nine OTAs because of school commitments.

"He missed a lot of time. He's a smart young man, but some of those things, you need to work with. He's got to continue to get those things, because there's no question he's a talented player."

Pyro's take: This is bad news for the rookie, but there is a silver lining. Shonn Greene re-aggravated the knee injury that suffered last season and had scoped twice.

There is no doubt if Bishop continues to cough up the ball, he will be sitting on the bench, but the Titans don't have any real depth to threaten him losing a lot of carries. The next running back on the depth chart is Dexter McCluster who has 20 carries over the previous two seasons. The dark horse candidate is fellow rookie Antonio Andrews. Antonio is off to a stellar start through two preseason games with five carries for three yards.

Bishop you need to tighten your game up. I have been hyping you all off-season. You should take the approach Tiki Barber used when Tom Coughlin changed his form, that I just saw on a Football Life of the Barbers. Hold the ball vertical, and don't fumble.

No sinking Sankey

Pre-season week one saw the running backs taking shape. Shonn Greene got the start followed by Dexter McCluster, and then finally rookie Bishop Sankey took the field. The spotlight turned quickly on him, because for the Titans he needs to be their main ball carrier, as he is more well-rounded than both Greene and McCluster. Sankey finished with 37 yards on 13 carries and 38 yards on three catches. He turned one short catch into a 23-yard gain and another one into a 5-yard touchdown.

The negative aspects of Sankey's game is what hampers most rookies, the ability to block. It's a daily effort to "sharpen up on those things" while also getting more comfortable as an NFL runner, Sankey said. He is also has a hard time with his footwork and getting his feet set correctly when receiving a hand-off. "It falls on me and it's going back to the details," Sankey said. "That stuff is unacceptable, and definitely something I have to get corrected as quickly as possible."

Even with that said, the Titans brass are very supportive of Sankey. Ken Whisenhunt has stated of Sankey, "This offense has to do it collectively, and make the splash plays that C.J. made. But we believe in him, and what we have seen so far, we like what we see."

Pyro's take: Bishop Sankey is clearly the most talented as this seems to be a three-headed rushing attack. Greene will most likely get the short yardage and end zone looks, as McCluster will be on passing downs, but as soon as Sankey can learn to improve his game, the quicker his role will grow. He is a non-reachable player for your fantasy team, and should be treated that way. He is good for a high-upside 4th running back or a low three.

Possible Tennessee committee

According to Jim Wyatt for the "Tenneessean" the Titans back-field could become a committee approach. The candidates are Bishop Sankey, Shonn Greene, and Dexter McCluster. Also involved, are Leon Washington, Jackie Battle, and rookies Wayman James and Antonio Andrews.

The major spotlight is going to be on Sankey, Greene, and McCluster. The Titans like Battle as a full-back due to his all-around skills.

If the Titans do hold on to Greene, who did not play well last year, is now injured, and will be due $2.3 million if he remains with the team, but they are impressed with his goal-line attributes.

Pyro's take: This is Sankey's job, unless he shows he isnt capable. Dexter McCluster, Shonn Greene are not viable threats, as each are more of a specialtist type of player. The Titans have noted they want to be a running back-by-committee, but I just dont see that happening, draft Sankey as you see fit, and just oversee how the Titans are planning to use their weapons.

Sankey looking to be an impact rookie

Former Gonzaga Prep and University of Washington running back Bishop Sankey became the first player at his position to be selected in the 2014 NFL Draft when he was taken in the 2nd round (54th overall) by the Tennessee Titans.

"It just feels awesome," Sankey said in a teleconference after being drafted. "I got a great feel when I went down (to Tennessee) on my visit. All the coaches there were great. It was a place that I definitely wanted to be. It really is a true blessing just to be the first running back taken off the board. I'm just ready to get to work. I'm just ready to get there and get to work."

"I think I'm an all-around back," Sankey said. "I've proven that I can move the ball on the ground, catch it through the air, and help in pass protection. I'm a guy that likes to use his eyes when I'm running. I feel like I'm patient enough to press the line of scrimmage and make the correct read and cut. I think that does work to my advantage as far as being a running back and running down the field and making guys miss in that second level."

Pyro's take: I love this guy. He reminds me of Giovani Bernard, and he will have the opportunity to have as much if not more success as a rookie than Gio did.

The only player standing in the way of "The Bishop"...I mean that has to be his nickname (that way I can have a Duke and a Bishop in my backfield), is Shonn Greene. Greene just underwent knee surgery, which is not a good sign for him. If he misses time Sankey will be able to step in and take a larger role early. Add to that, the Titans have one of the best offensive lines in the NFL...what more could a rookie running back ask for. Keep your eye on this kid and he should be the first rookie running back drafted in Dynasty league rookie drafts.
