Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Bishop Sankey will likely get more reps than he has all season against the Browns this week.

"You will see (more reps for Sankey). That's coming," Whisenhunt said. "And I think you'll see more of that earlier in the game this week." Sankey has actually led the Titans' running backs in snaps the past two weeks with 22 and 29, respectively, but they've been coming in the second half when the Titans have been getting plastered on the scoreboard. Whisenhunt is finally realizing Shonn Greene and Dexter McCluster aren't good. Sankey has managed 127 yards and one touchdown on 19 touches the past two weeks. Cleveland has allowed the second-most fantasy points to opposing running backs. Sankey has RB2 upside.

Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said Monday that rookie Bishop Sankey's "footwork is improving," which should lead to more opportunities.

Sankey is averaging 5.94 YPC with a touchdown amid what Whisenhunt believes is shoddy "footwork" the past two weeks. So consider the possibilities once Sankey's "footwork" improves, we suppose. Sankey played only 29 snaps in Week 3 and 24 snaps in Week 4. The Titans have lost three straight games.
Sep 29 - 5:02 PM

The Titans are "hopeful" Jake Locker (wrist) will be able to practice Wednesday.

With Locker sidelined Sunday against the Colts, Charlie Whitehurst and Zach Mettenberger combined to complete 50 percent of 28 combined pass attempts for 176 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions while absorbing three sacks, all by Whitehurst. The Titans' quarterback problems are major.
Sep 29 - 4:34 PM

Titans RCB Blidi Wreh-Wilson suffered a concussion in Week 4.

His status is questionable for Week 5 against the Browns. If the Titans have to dig into their cornerback depth, late-round rookie Marqueston Huff would be the next man up behind Jason McCourty and Coty Sensabaugh.
Sep 29 - 4:32 PM

Nate Washington caught 1-of-4 targets for 20 yards in the Titans' Week 4 loss to the Colts.

Washington dropped an 18-yard touchdown before Delanie Walker ended up scoring a couple plays later. Washington is the clear No. 4 or 5 option in a terrible passing attack. He's on pace to catch just 24 passes for 320 yards and zero scores this season. Clearly, Washington is waiver wire fodder.
Sep 28 - 5:30 PM

Justin Hunter caught 1-of-5 targets for 12 yards in the Titans' Week 4 loss to the Colts.

Hunter was called out by coach Whisenhunt after the game as a player who let the team down. He had a third-down pass clang off his hands in the first half that was easily picked off. Hunter has been one of the most disappointing players in the league through four games, and he's on pace for just 36 catches for 552 yards and no scores. He appears to just be going through the motions at times. Hunter is nothing more than a WR4/5 at the point.
Sep 28 - 5:24 PM

Kendall Wright caught five passes for 55 yards in the Titans' Week 4 loss to the Colts.

Wright saw a team-high seven targets, but got called out by coach Ken Whisenhunt after the game as a player who let the team down. Wright caught a first-quarter pass but fumbled it away in his own territory while trying to crawl for extra yards. After four games, Wright is on pace for a pedestrian 76-704-4 receiving line. He is one of the most ordinary receivers in football. Wright is more WR4 than WR3. He doesn't score and doesn't make big plays.
Sep 28 - 5:12 PM

Delanie Walker caught five passes for 84 yards and one touchdown in the Titans' Week 4 loss to the Colts.

Walker was one of the only players to show up for the Titans on Sunday. He was targeted seven times on the day, and skied up for a pass early in the game before catching a seven-yard touchdown in double-coverage late in the second quarter. After four games, Walker is on pace to catch 88 balls for 1,268 yards and 12 touchdowns. They would all easily be career-highs. Walker is setting himself apart as the most reliable option in the Titans' passing game. He's a legit TE1.
Sep 28 - 4:55 PM

Dexter McCluster rushed two times for one yard in the Titans' Week 4 loss to the Colts.

He was targeted just once in the passing game and can safely be dropped in all formats. McCluster was hyped in the summer, as usual, but predictably is failing to deliver with the games meaning something. He's on pace for just 404 total yards on the season. Bishop Sankey should steal reps at McCluster's expense.
Sep 28 - 4:50 PM

Shonn Greene rushed for 10 yards on three carries in the Titans' Week 4 loss to the Colts.

Greene and Dexter McCluster were the clear Nos. 1 and 2 backs in the first half, but the Titans fell behind quickly and were blown out by the Colts. Bishop Sankey then ran circles around both veterans with an impressive third-quarter series that ended in a two-yard touchdown. Greene has been pretty ordinary the past two weeks, and should lose carries to Sankey if the coaching staff was smart. Through four games, Greene is on pace for 616 yards and four touchdowns on 132 carries. He's barely on the FLEX radar. The Titans host the Browns in Week 5.
Sep 28 - 4:33 PM

Bishop Sankey rushed for 34 yards and one touchdown on six carries in the Titans' Week 4 loss to the Colts.

Sankey led all Titans' running backs in rushing yards, as Shonn Greene and Dexter McCluster combined for 11 yards on five carries. Sankey didn't play at all in the first half before getting an entire series to himself in the third quarter, picking up easy chunk yards and cashing in a two-yard touchdown. But, ya know, footwork. It's clear Sankey is the Titans' best back, but look for Greene to keep leading this backfield until further notice. Sankey is closing in, though, and needs to be owned in 12- and 14-team leagues.
Sep 28 - 4:17 PM

Charlie Whitehurst completed 12-of-23 passes for 177 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Titans' blowout Week 4 loss to the Colts.

Making his fifth start of his career in place of an injured Jake Locker (wrist), 32-year-old Whitehurst had an up-and-down mostly bad day. He missed plenty of throws high and wide, but was also hurt by poor play from his receivers. Justin Hunter had a third-down pass clang right off his hands and into the air for Whitehurst's interception, and Nate Washington dropped a wide-open 18-yard touchdown. On the flip side, Whitehurst threw an easy 18-yard TD over Kendall Wright's head. He eventually found Delanie Walker for a seven-yard score. Whitehurst is one of the worst quarterbacks to take the field this season, as he crumbled in the face of pressure and was sacked three times for 18 yards. He did add 40 yards rushing, though. Whitehurst was replaced by rookie Zach Mettenberger midway through the fourth quarter.
Sep 28 - 4:00 PM

Delanie Walker (shoulder) is active for Week 4 against the Colts.

Walker missed some practice reps this week, but he was never in any real danger of missing Sunday's game. Expect Charlie Whitehurst's insertion into the starting lineup for an injured Jake Locker (wrist) to benefit Walker. He's a top-end TE1 option against a Colts defense that hemorrhages points to tight ends.
Sep 28 - 11:25 AM

Jake Locker (wrist) is inactive for Week 4 against the Colts, and Charlie Whitehurst will get the start at quarterback.

Whitehurst is a bottom-barrel QB2 option in a week there are only 24 quarterbacks playing Sunday and Monday. Fire the Colts defense up as an enticing streaming option. Also inactive for the Titans are OT Byron Stingily, WR Kris Durham, TE Taylor Thompson, DL Ropati Pitoitua, CB Brandon Harris, and LB Akeem Ayers.
Sep 28 - 11:15 AM

Jake Locker (wrist) will not start against the Colts in Week 4.

Charlie Whitehurst will get the start. Locker hurt his wrist last week against the Bengals. He was able to do a little bit at practice this week, but at less than 100 percent, he wasn't worth the risk. Consider him questionable for Week 5.
