Sankey has had a subpar camp so far.
Sankey has had a subpar camp so far.

 

Every year there always seems to be one or two rookie running backs who come into their first fantasy season with a lot of hype.  Heading into training camp Bishop Sankey was being adored in fantasy circles as this year’s Eddie Lacy, but so far the results are mixed.  Sankey has not looked comfortable in the Tennessee offense, and has shown at times difficulty picking up the offense.  Sankey’s real trouble lies in his fumbling issues, as he has dropped the ball in each of his first two preseason games along with a multitude of times at various practices.  Ken Whisenhunt currently has Shonn Greene listed as the starter, but he’ll have to prove he can remain healthy to put a dent in Sankey’s fantasy value.  I believe Dexter McCluster could be more of danger to cut into Sankey’s playing time and overall fantasy value this season.  McCluster brings versatility to the Titans backfield they lost when Chris Johnson went to the Jets.  If Greene plays the majority of his snaps on first and second down, Sankey will have to also compete with McCluster on third down for touches.  McCluster has proven he can catch out of the backfield, and even split out as a wide receiver if needed.  So far this summer it has been Dexter who has shown to be the best back on the roster, making plays consistently all over the field.  This will definitely make me rethink drafting Sankey in any league I am in, especially since he is being drafted way above his current value in the top 20 of all running backs.  Sankey has a lot of potential, it just might take some time for that to be reached, and in terms of a fantasy season, we do not have a lot of time to waste.
