Player Outlook

Bishop Sankey's role will continue to shrink this summer after the Titans acquired DeMarco Murray and rookie Derrick Henry to anchor their run game. Last season, Sankey came out of the gate red hot (6.2 yards per carry with two touchdowns) before struggling the rest of the season (3.4 yards per carry with no touchdowns). With the chance the third-year rusher gets cut from the Titans, no one should have him on their Fantasy rosters.

Player News
  • Sankey may have to compete for a roster spot, ESPN.com reports. The Titans made a huge investment in the running back position this offseason, trading for DeMarco Murray and then drafting Derrick Henry. A second-round bust through two seasons, Sankey will likely have to compete with David Cobb, Antonio Andrews and Dexter McCluster for one or two roster spots. McCluster's receiving ability and general versatility should work in his favor, whereas Sankey, Cobb and Andrews don't really offer anything that the Murray-Henry can't bring to the table.

  • Running back DeMarco Murray has been acquired by the Titans, the team's official site reports. All the Titans gave up to acquire the embattled running back was a pick swap in the fourth round. While he struggled in his first year with Philadelphia, Murray is just one season removed from an 1,845 rushing yard campaign. He immediately becomes the favorite to head the team's backfield in 2016, putting the roles of David Cobb, Bishop Sankey, and Antonio Andrews in question. Tennessee spent a second-round pick on Sankey in 2014, but this acquisition suggests they are already moving on from the young running back following a pair of unimpressive seasons.

  • Titans head coach Mike Mularkey said he hopes Sankey will get at least 30 snaps in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Colts, the Titans' official website reports. Sankey played exactly 30 snaps in Sunday's loss to the Texans, taking advantage of his team's massive deficit, in combination with Antonio Andrews' miscues. Sankey figures to get most of the passing-down work in Week 17, but it shouldn't actually be assumed that he'll go over 30 snaps. Andrews and David Cobb are probably still the better bets for early-down work.

  • Sankey rushed twice for 11 yards, and caught 3-of-4 targets for 43 more in Sunday's loss to Houston. Sankey's 54 yards from scrimmage marked his highest total since way back in Week 1. It's possible he could see more action in Week 17 with both David Cobb and Antonio Andrews struggling of late, but the disgraced former starter has teased owners often enough in his first two NFL seasons that not many will be holding their breath.

  • Sankey didn't get a carry, but caught all three of his targets for 23 yards in Sunday's loss to the Patriots. Sankey got his first offensive touches since Week 10, as Dexter McCluster's season-ending wrist injury has opened up an opportunity for the second-year running back to get back on the field. His lack of involvement indicates Sankey still has a long way to go before he regains the coaching staff's trust, though.
