Coaches deny trade rumor involving Titans WR Justin Hunter
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Ken Whisenhunt and Mike Pettine have denied trade rumors that have underperforming Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter heading to Cleveland.

"There's no basis for that," Whisenhunt told the Akron Beacon Journal.

Hunter has just nine catches for 138 yards and no touchdowns. He managed just one reception for 12 yards in Week 4. The Browns lost premier receiver Josh Gordon through Week 12 to a drug suspension, but have received strong production from Andrew Hawkins and Miles Austin.

Shonn Greene on the outs
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

In my recap of everything that stood out to me in Week 4, I had a simple take on Titans running back Shonn Greene:

Forget about him.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt paraphrased Wednesday, saying rookie running back Bishop Sankey would get more playing time beginning Week 5 against Cleveland and pointed out that he's already started to, playing more than 40 percent of the team's snaps the last two weeks. By comparison, Greene has played barely 20 percent.

Greene did play 41 percent of the snaps way back in Week 1, when he had 15 carries for 71 yards at Kansas City, but with Whisenhunt only promising more for Sankey, it's safe to say Green is being phased out.

Even against the Browns, whether or not to sit him shouldn't even be in question. In 12-team leagues, I consider him to be a waste of a roster spot.

Bishop Sankey's time to shine?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said the words Fantasy owners were hoping to hear Wednesday: Rookie running back Bishop Sankey will get more playing time Week 5 against Cleveland.

He's been trending that way anyway. As Whisenhunt pointed out, Sankey played a season-high 46 percent of the team's snaps in Week 4, well more than 13 and 8 percent he played in Weeks 1 and 2, respectively. By comparison, Shonn Greene played only 23 percent of the team's snaps at Indianapolis.

The question is will Sankey be able to do anything with those snaps? His touchdown saved him last week; he had only six carries for 34 yards. This week's game shouldn't be nearly as one-sided, though. The Browns, unlike the Colts, aren't in the running for best team in the league. They also rank just 18th against the run, allowing 111.3 yards per game.

With the promise of more playing time, an average of 5.9 yards per carry over the last two weeks and what's at least an OK matchup, I'm not so opposed to starting Sankey this week. I'd rather take a wait-and-see approach with him, but if you're in desperate times, he's your desperate measure.
