  Vikings | Bishop Sankey waived/injured    Sat Aug 12, 03:30 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Bishop Sankey (knee) was waived/injured Saturday, Aug. 12.

Footballguys view: That could be a wrap for his pro career. A second-round pick out of Washington in 2014, Sankey just didn't have the juice to make it in the pros. Add in his problems staying healthy and you can see how his pro career has been a major disappointment.

  Vikings | Bishop Sankey has torn ACL    Fri Aug 11, 05:41 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Bishop Sankey (ankle) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament during the first preseason game Thursday, Aug. 10, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Sankey was competing for a reserve spot deep on the Vikings bench. A second-round pick out of Washington in 2014, Sankey's career has been a bust and he didn't play at all in 2016. This injury is likely to prevent him from ever doing much as a pro.

  Vikings | Bishop Sankey injures knee    Thu Aug 10, 09:11 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Bishop Sankey (knee) exited the preseason game against the Buffalo Bills Thursday, Aug. 10, with a knee injury and will not return.

Footballguys view: Sankey was going to have an uphill battle to make the team as a fourth running back. His journey around the league could be coming to a close. He was wearing a brace and on crutches after the game.

  Vikings | Many players signed by Vikings    Mon Jan 2, 03:18 PM

Minnesota Vikings DT Sterling Bailey, WR Moritz Bohringer, TE Kyle Carter, WR Cayleb Jones, OT Marquis Lucas, CB Tre Roberson, RB Bishop Sankey, S Cedric Thompson and OT Austin Shepherd were signed to Reserve/Futures contracts Monday, Jan. 2.

Footballguys view: This is an interesting group of players signed to futures deals. Bohringer was the first German player drafted in the NFL without playing college football. His size/speed combination showed up watching Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns film on YouTube. A sixth-round pick of the Vikings this year, Bohringer was released on final cuts after camp but he did get signed to the practice squad and spent the season there.

The Kansas City Chiefs have declared QB Tyler Bray, DL Jaye Howard, WR Jeremy Maclin, LB Dadi Nicolas, OL Mike Person, CB Marcus Peters, RB Bishop Sankey inactive for Week 11.

Footballguys view: Peters is out so upgrade Jameis Winston and Mike Evans, but overall they will still have a tall order on the road against the Chiefs tough front seven.

  Chiefs | Bishop Sankey headed to Chiefs    Tue Nov 1, 11:39 AM

New England Patriots RB Bishop Sankey was signed by the Kansas City Chiefs Tuesday, Nov. 1, according to agent Jason Bernstein. Terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Sankey has been a bust in his pro career after the Titans made him a second-round pick in the 2014 NFL draft. He gives them some veteran depth with both Jamaal Charles (knee) and Spencer Ware (concussion) banged up. Charcandrick West now sits at the top of the depth chart. The Chiefs have other options besides Sankey if they want them. Darrin Reaves is on their practice squad and Knile Davis is now available after the Packers cut him.

  Patriots | New England adds Bishop Sankey to PS    Sun Sep 4, 02:34 PM

Free-agent RB Bishop Sankey (Titans) will sign with the New England Patriots to be part of their practice squad, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Patriots have done this before with higher draft picks. They added Montee Ball last year (a second-round pick in 2013) after the Broncos cut him. Like Ball, we're not expecting Sankey to last long with the Patriots.

  Titans | Tennessee cuts Bishop Sankey    Fri Sep 2, 12:14 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey was released Friday, Sept. 2.

Footballguys view: Sankey was the first RB taken off the board in the 2014 NFL draft. It's no surprise the team has moved on already as Sankey just never had the game to make it as a starter in the NFL. Sankey looks lost at times with the ball in his hands, and he lacks the creativity and vision to excel. There may be a market for him somewhere else, but we can't imagine teams falling all over themselves to add him.

  Titans | Antonio Andrews in lead for No. 3 RB job    Fri Aug 26, 05:12 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Antonio Andrews has a slight edge on RBs David Cobb and Bishop Sankey for the No. 3 running back job in part because of his special teams play, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.

Footballguys view: Andrews was very good last year on a bad team, and in the event of injuries to Demarco Murray and Derrick Henry, he could fit well in the run-heavy approach of the Mike Mularkey Titans. Cobb would likely get picked up quickly if the Titans decide to let him go. Bishop Sankey is a mere afterthought at this point.

  Titans | Bishop Sankey scores touchdown    Sun Aug 14, 12:44 AM

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey carried three times for 52 yards with a 41-yard touchdown scamper in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 13, against the San Diego Chargers.

Footballguys view: Sankey is in a make-or-break year for the Titans. The backfield will be primarily DeMarco Murray and rookie Derrick Henry, so there's no fantasy value for Sankey even if he makes the final roster. Perhaps he'd be able to jump-start his career on a new team.

  Titans | Bishop Sankey has added weight    Thu Aug 11, 05:55 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey is up to 216 pounds after adding eight pounds since last year. Sankey said he feels strong and more explosive and is more confident than in previous years, adding that he's trying to prove himself every day.

  Titans | Bishop Sankey performing well    Fri Jun 3, 03:39 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey has made some solid plays during offseason workouts, and head coach Mike Mularkey said he believes the competition at the position has improved the play of several of the running backs. Sankey is expected to compete with RBs Antonio Andrews and David Cobb for roster spots during training camp.

Footballguys view: We'll believe when we see it. Sankey has been a total bust for the Titans, and he's buried on the depth chart. The Titans are going to use an "exotic smashmouth" backfield featuring both DeMarco Murray and rookie Derrick Henry.

  Titans | Tennessee moving on from Bishop Sankey?    Thu May 5, 09:40 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey will share No. 20 with SS Kevin Byard during training camp, and the team isn't running a number-share program for its top players.

Footballguys view: Good. Sankey was always a bad fit for the Titans offense. They've got DeMarco Murray as their lead back, they drafted Derrick Henry to be part of their "exotic smashmouth" offense and they also have second-year pro David Cobb in the backfield. Sankey is likely to be out of the league or playing for another team in 2016 as the Titans are certain to move on.

  Titans | Bishop Sankey fighting for his job?    Sat Mar 12, 08:47 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey will have to prove himself this offseason if he wants to remain with the team, according to beat writer Jim Wyatt.

Footballguys view: A second-round pick in 2014, Sankey has only averaged 3.8 yards per carry over two seasons and he's done little when given a chance to start. With the addition of DeMarco Murray this offseason, the depth chart at RB is going to get pinched. Sankey could be the player who finds himself squeezed off the roster.

  Titans | Bishop Sankey receives praise    Tue Dec 29, 12:14 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey received some praise from the coaching staff after the Week 16 loss. He led all Titans running backs with 30 snaps, although he ran just twice for seven yards and added three catches for a career-high 43 yards. Sankey had just two carries the previous nine weeks, and head coach Mike Mularkey said Sankey will continue to see more time in Week 17. Mularkey also feels that RB David Cobb is improving, but Cobb had only seven carries for 18 yards against the Houston Texans. RB Antonio Andrews lost an early fumble, and Mularkey didn't seem to have much enthusiasm for him.

Footballguys view: Sankey's dynasty value is low, but the team may still want to give him a shot to prove himself as a change-of-pace back.

  Titans | Bishop Sankey to be involved    Thu Dec 17, 03:14 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey will be involved in some personnel groupings in Week 15 against the New England Patriots, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.

Footballguys view: Sankey has been surpassed by both Antonio Andrews and rookie David Cobb on the depth chart and even if he plays his impact will be limited. Andrews and Cobb are both "What the heck flex" plays as RB6s.

  Titans | Bishop Sankey might be inactive    Thu Nov 12, 01:52 AM

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey might be inactive in Week 10 against the Carolina Panthers following the activation of RB David Cobb (calf) from the Reserve/Injured Designated to Return list, head coach Mike Mularkey indicated Wednesday, Nov. 11.

Footballguys view: Say it with us: Sankey is Stankey. Antonio Andrews has done just enough to show just how stankey he is at that. Andrews will probably get the start and is no more than an RB4, with Dexter McCluster a flex play at RB5.

  Titans | David Cobb's workload unknown    Wed Nov 11, 06:49 PM

Tennessee Titans RB David Cobb (calf) was activated from the short-term Reserve/Injured list this week, but interim head coach Mike Mularkey is unsure how much Cobb might play moving forward. Cobb has battled weight issues recently, but he said that he's down to 225 pounds. With Cobb back on the roster, Mularkey left open the possibility that RB Bishop Sankey could be inactive in Week 10 against the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: Sankey is basically a dead man walking on this team. Cobb is going to have trouble carving out a fantasy-friendly role with Antonio Andrews playing well and Dexter McCluster dominating pass downs.

  Titans | Bishop Sankey doesn't play    Mon Nov 9, 10:32 AM

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey didn't play any offensive snaps Sunday, Nov. 8, in Week 9. RB Antonio Andrews played 45 snaps, and RB Dexter McCluster played 29 snaps.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners should have moved on from Sankey, as the team certainly will at some point. The Titans seem comfortable with Antonio Andrews as their top guy at running back. We'll see how rookie David Cobb gets worked into the mix when he returns from the IR/R list this week.

  Titans | Bishop Sankey losing playing time    Sun Nov 1, 04:55 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey did not get a carry for the second week in a row and fumbled a kickoff return during his team's 20-6 loss to the Houston Texans. He was replaced on returns by RB Dexter McCluster.

Footballguys view: Sankey has gone from anointed one in the Titans backfield to fighting for his spot on the roster once David Cobb is back. Teams are loathe to give up on second round picks after only two years, so Sankey should stick around with a new regime likely coming that could attempt to salvage his raw tools and talent.

  Titans | Antonio Andrews appears the lead back    Thu Oct 29, 12:15 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Antonio Andrews appears to have switched roles with RB Bishop Sankey after Sankey didn't receive a carry in Week 7, according to The Tennessean's John Glennon. Andrews appears to be in line for more carries in Week 8 after rushing 10 times for 57 yards last week.

Footballguys view: Andrews represents no more than a flex play, sitting as an unsteady RB3 this week against Houston. Going forward, this could be a sign that the moment David Cobb is back from injury, he could see significant carries.

  Titans | Tennessee improving screen game    Wed Oct 14, 01:18 PM

The Tennessee Titans are a team that has become more effective running screen plays to running backs. RBs Bishop Sankey and Antonio Andrews both gained nice yardage and first downs on screen plays in Week 5 against the Buffalo Bills. Sankey can excel on screen plays, and the Titans could use more of them against teams with aggressive defenses.

Footballguys view: Head coach Ken Whisenhunt is trying to incorporate more screen plays in the offense this year. The Titans don't have a RB to rely on for fantasy owners, but rookie David Cobb will eventually return from injury and we're excited about his upside as a potential starter.

  Titans | Tennessee RBs do very little in loss    Sun Oct 11, 08:17 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Dexter McCluster rushed eight times for 20 yards in the Week 5 loss against the Buffalo Bills. RB Antonio Andrews rushed seven times for just nine yards, but he had a touchdown while added three catches for a team-high 45 yards. RB Bishop Sankey also ran seven times for 20 yards with three grabs for 23 yards.

Footballguys view: The Bills run defense is one of the tougher units to solve, and when you split that three ways, it's not going to be viable in fantasy leagues. This situation will only get muddier when David Cobb returns later this season.

  Titans | Bishop Sankey plays sparingly    Sun Sep 27, 11:00 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey had five carries for 10 yards and two catches for 31 yards in a 35-33 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3.

Footballguys view: Sankey only played 19 snaps against the Colts. His role with the team is on thin ice as every week it seems like a different Titans back is leading the way. This is a situation that most fantasy owners need to avoid.

  Titans | Dexter McCluster sees heavy action    Mon Sep 21, 10:10 AM

Tennessee Titans RB Dexter McCluster led the running backs with 47 snaps (59% of the offense) Sunday, Sept. 20. RB Bishop Sankey played 32 snaps (40% of the offense.)

Footballguys view: The Titans have done everything they can short of running a Craigslist add to find running back production. Sankey and Terrence West have fallen out of favor, and McCluster is the one who produced on Sunday. Going forward, this is a situation that could be quite complicated until rookie David Cobb (calf) gets back from injury. Around the halfway point of the season, Cobb will be eligible to return, and he could be the team's starter.

  Titans | Bishop Sankey takes step backward    Sun Sep 20, 09:22 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey carried 12 times for just 42 yards in the Week 2 game against the Cleveland Browns, and he did not have any catches on two targets.

Footballguys view: Sankey had one week in the sun, but he's back to fantasy obscurity except for cautionary tales about the first drafted running back and assumed success.

  Titans | Bishop Sankey praised for effort    Sun Sep 13, 07:58 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey ran for a career-high 72 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries and caught two passes for 12 yards and a score in a 42-14 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday, Sept. 13, and head coach Ken Whisenhunt said Sankey had 'a good day' and 'ran tough.'

Footballguys view: Sankey and the entire Titans offense looks 1000% more valuable for fantasy than they did 24 hours ago because of Marcus Mariota. Terrance West and eventually David Cobb will keep Sankey from being an everyweek RB2, but he will remain at least a flex play next week against the beleaguered Browns run defense.

  Titans | Bishop Sankey will get his chance    Wed Sep 9, 12:44 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey led the Titans with only 569 rushing yards and two touchdowns last year for a 3.7 yards-per-carry average. His longest run was only 22 yards and his season high was just 61 yards in a game. Sankey said he's happy he struggled in his rookie year and is more confident entering 2016. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt doesn't want to rely too much on Sankey this year, though, and the team added RB Terrance West after rookie RB David Cobb (calf) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list. West could see significant touches as the season moves along, but Whisenhunt said it'll take time for him to learn the offense. Sankey has a prime opportunity to stake his claim to the lead-back role in the meantime.

Footballguys view: He gets his chance because David Cobb is going to miss significant time with a calf injury. Sankey was unimpressive last year as a rookie, and we're not expecting that to change this season.

  Titans | Bishop Sankey not lead RB?    Mon Sep 7, 04:08 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey has not yet established himself as the Titans' lead running back, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky.

Footballguys view: Should anyone be surprised by this? The Titans had a back in rookie David Cobb who could've challenged for the starting job, but now he's out with a serious calf injury. The Titans added Terrance West via trade, and they are looking at free agent Jonas Gray too. All signs indicate this team wants an upgrade at running back.

  Titans | Bishop Sankey to remain top back in TEN    Sun Sep 6, 05:28 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey will keep the No. 1 running back position despite the trade of RB Terrance West to the Titans.

Footballguys view: Sankey is the least attractive #1 running back in drafts by a good margin. The Titans offense is under construction, and both Dexter McCluster and Antonio Andrews could also play specialist roles to diminish what value there is at the running back position in Tennessee.

  Titans | More on Bishop Sankey's progress    Fri Aug 28, 01:17 PM

Updating previous reports, Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey has impressed his coaches with improvement this preseason. 'I think Bishop made significant improvement last week in practices as far as getting downhill and hitting the hole and it showed up in the game,' running backs coach Sylvester Croom said. 'That is something he has to continue to work on. I think from the first game to the last game his improvement was significant, and he played with a lot of confidence. He has to continue to work on that where it is consistently done that way. Pass protection, assignment-wise, he is doing a good job, but we still have to improve on technique. He needs to make the running style consistent.'

Footballguys view: A lot of pundits expect Sankey to give was to rookie David Cobb, but as he isn't traveling for the third preseason game, the rook is still behind the second year running back. We have Sankey as a low-end RB3 or a solid RB4, while Cobb is a solid RB4. They're both going about the same time in drafts right now in round eight. Cobb has the tenuous upside, while Sankey starts out as the more solid option, relatively speaking.

  Titans | Bishop Sankey showing improvement    Tue Aug 25, 01:16 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey had 45 yards on six carries in the team's second preseason game against the St. Louis Rams, and head coach Ken Whisenhunt saw improvement from Sankey from the first week of the preseason. Sankey had just 15 yards on eight carries in Week 1 of the preseason against the Atlanta Falcons.

Footballguys view: We're not falling all over ourselves to get Sankey on our fantasy lineups, but this is a step in the right direction. We'll see if Sankey can hang onto the starting job this year. Rookie David Cobb should push him for the top spot, and he could take over if Sankey falters again this year.

  Titans | Bishop Sankey solid Sunday    Sun Aug 23, 11:22 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey had six carries for 45 yards in a preseason game against the St. Louis Rams Sunday, Aug. 23.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Sankey can hold off rookie David Cobb for the starting job. Sankey had a disappointing rookie season (3.7 yards per carry, only two rushing touchdowns), and finished 2014 as the 43rd fantasy running back. He's changed his physique this offseason in an effort to be more productive. Keep an eye on this RB battle. Sankey should begin the season as the starter, but he could be replaced by Cobb if he struggles.

  Titans | David Cobb to overtake Bishop Sankey?    Sat Aug 22, 02:59 PM

Tennessee Titans RB David Cobb could end up with more carries than RB Bishop Sankey by the end of the season, according to Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Right now the two are ranked about the same by the Footballguys staff, with Sankey just a little further ahead. Right now, Cobb is trending just ahead of Sankey in ADP, with the former going in round eight and Sankey getting drafted in early round nine.

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey averaged just 1.9 yards per carry on eight rushing attempts in a preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons Friday, Aug. 14, and head coach Ken Whisenhunt said some of Sankey's issues could be blamed on the play of the offensive line.

Footballguys view: Even if this is supposed to acquit Sankey, it still shouldn't make you more eager to draft him. The results tell the story no matter who is to blame.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota runs option play    Sun Aug 16, 08:54 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota ran an option-based play during practice Sunday, Aug. 16. Operating out of shotgun, Mariota faked a handoff to RB Bishop Sankey before sprinting to the left and throwing a slightly forward pass to WR Harry Douglas.

Footballguys view: That one option play makes a headline is a sign that the Titans haven't exactly gone all-in on the read option running game. It could help both Mariota's fantasy stock and the overall running game if it is pulled out with some precision in execution.

  Titans | Bishop Sankey leading the backfield    Thu Aug 13, 08:58 AM

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey has received the most first-team repetitions in training camp.

Footballguys view: Sankey is cheaper than last year and he is set up for a better opportunity. It's hard to knock any pick in the 9th/10th round or later, but Sankey has been a much improved player to pay off on any investment. Look his ADP to start to inch up on this news. David Cobb is a less attractive sleeper now.

  Titans | Committee to be used in TEN?    Mon Aug 3, 04:37 PM

Tennessee Titans RBs Bishop Sankey and David Cobb could lead a running back by committee this season, according to ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky. RBs Antonio Andrews and Dexter McCluster would also be in the mix.

Footballguys view: We think the Titans would be best to start Cobb over Sankey, but hey at least a RBBC featuring both gets them close. Cobb is a powerful and efficient runner who can grind down a defense. With rookie fullback Jalston Fowler blasting open holes in front of him, it could make for a nice rushing attack. Fantasy owners should stay away from the Titans backfield until we get more clarity about the starter and the split.

  Titans | Bishop Sankey likely to start    Wed Jul 22, 08:17 AM

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey is the odds-on favorite to start in Week 1 because he has a year of experience and a full offseason under his belt.

Footballguys view: Sankey had a disappointing rookie season, but the Titans look like they'll give him another chance to prove himself as the lead back. However, they did draft both RB David Cobb and FB Jalston Fowler in the 2015 NFL draft. If (when?) Sankey struggles, we could see Cobb take over with Fowler blasting open holes in front of him.

  Titans | Confidence high for Antonio Andrews    Mon Jun 22, 11:32 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Antonio Andrews feels confident he can crack the roster, and is shooting for a starting tailback job in training camp and the preseason. 'I am just going for a starting spot, whether it is Bishop Sankey, Dexter McCluster, David Cobb, Jalston Fowler or Connor Neighbors, I am just trying to be the No. 1 guy,' Andrews said.

Footballguys view: At 5'10" 225 pounds, Andrews is a swift runner who can blast through arm tackles. He's also an option as a return man. We like rookie David Cobb to eventually come through as the starter, but he'll have to beat out Bishop Sankey. The way Sankey looked last year, that might not be too difficult.

  Titans | Bishop Sankey happy with more OTAs    Tue Jun 9, 06:11 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey believes participating in more organized team activities this offseason has helped him a lot. Sankey missed most of last year's OTAs due to PAC-12 school rules. 'I've been able to kind of start from scratch,' Sankey said. 'I definitely feel more comfortable with pass protection, initial reads with running plays and everything.'

Footballguys view: According to camp reports, Sankey has been looking good at OTAs and minicamp. We'll believe it when we see it. Sankey is facing competition for the starting job from rookie David Cobb. The Titans also added fullback Jalston Fowler in the draft to help blast open holes for an offense that wants to be run heavy.
