Today was a day of clarity if you were wondering which Tennessee Titans running back to use in week 1 of fantasy football. To be honest, I would probably shy away from all of them, but if you are really wanting to use a Titan, Bishop Sankey is clearly the guy. We thought David Cobb was going to push him, but he is out until at least week 6 after being placed on short-term IR today.

If you are playing on FanDuel, please use the link above, Sankey is only $6,300 in week 1. That is a pretty good price for a back that will probably get 85% of the carries against the Buccaneers.  Sankey also gets the advantage of having Marcus Mariota under center.  The Bucs will have to account for Mariota's ability to run.  That will open up some running lanes for Sankey.
