Week 8: vs Houston Texans
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. With Shonn Greene shelved due to a balky hamstring, Bishop Sankey has received his chance to be a featured running back. At Washington he posted 16/56/0 rushing with one target for zero receptions. Vs. Jacksonville he had 18/61/0 rushing with 1/7/0 receiving. Currently averaging 4.0 yards per carry this season (66/267/1 rushing with 4/39/0 receiving), Sankey is the 50th-ranked fantasy running back in the land - he is the mediocre talent many thought he is, but Sankey is the best back the Titans have with Greene out. Jackie Battle (2/3/0 rushing and 2/13/0 receiving at Washington) and Leon Washington (1/8/0 rushing and 1/9/0 receiving last week) provide change-of-pace options to Sankey.
The Texans' rush D averages 118.6 rushing yards allowed per game (20th in the NFL) with four rushing scores given up to date. They held Pittsburgh to 25/76/0 rushing last week, and kept the Colts to 35/93/1 rushing two games back. The defensive front is playing pretty well entering Week 8, despite their middling season average.
