Week 13: at Houston Texans

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Bishop Sankey posted 9/35/0 rushing and 4/25/0 receiving the last time he saw the Texans - all told, the Titans tried just 13/36/0 rushing against the Texans (at home in LP Field). Coming into this week, Sankey had a poor effort vs. Philadelphia (10/37/0 rushing with 2/14/0 receiving) and ended up limited by a stinger inflicted during the game. Shonn Greene vultured the lone rushing TD during the loss to Philadelphia (6/15/1 rushing last week), doing just enough to keep Sankey extremely frustrating for his fantasy owners. This rushing attack is ranked 28th in the NFL averaging 88.8 yards generated per game, with six rushing TDs scored this year. Given the shared workload, it isn't reasonable to expect exciting fantasy numbers from this below-average group. Adding insult to injury, Dexter McCluster suffered a concussion last week and is going through the concussion protocols this week, and may not be available to spice up the attack in his change-of-pace role. Stay tuned to Footballguys.com's Players in the News for the latest practice reports from Tennessee heading into this divisional showdown. The Texans' rush D is now 18th in the NFL averaging 113.9 yards allowed per game, with six rushing scores given up over 11 contests. They allowed 43/139/1 to the Bengals last week; Cleveland had 2458/0 rushing two weeks ago. Like most mediocre units, this one is inconsistent in results from week to week. Sankey and company are a low-end rushing attack facing a mediocre rush D - that's a neutral matchup in our book.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 10 vs BAL (3 / 5 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Shonn Greene had just three carries and a crucial fumble at the goal line. His value to the Titans is in his reliability, so at this point, it appears that Bishop Sankey has taken over his job.

2014 Week 11 vs PIT (3 / 6 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Greene was used as a short-yardage back as Sankey carried the load. He was effective in that role, but also received limited touches in it.

2014 Week 12 vs PHI (6 / 15 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Greene had the first carry of the game and he took the ball for three yards between the tackles. He gave way for Bishop Sankey to be the feature back after that carry, until the offense was at the goal line. From there, Greene carried the ball twice for short gains, with the second one ending in the end zone. Greene was very much a complementary back to Sankey as he rarely saw the field. He was his usual consistent, but unexplosive self when he touched the ball.
