The Tennessean suggests that Sankey "is the odds-on favorite" to be the Titans' starting running back to open the coming season.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The prediction is based on the fact that Sankey -- the first running back chosen in the 2014 draft -- has a year's worth of experience and a full offseason to his credit as training camp approaches. As a rookie, Sankey averaged 3.7 yards on 152 carries, but the report suggests that missing OTAs because of school commitments last year may have stalled the University of Washington product, who turns 23 on Sept. 15. Because Dexter McCluster is more of a change-of-pace option, look for 2015 draftee David Cobb and perhaps Antonio Andrews to challenge Sankey for touches. Down the road, Cobb is a candidate to claim a key role in the team's backfield, though the fact that he missed much of the offseason with a hamstring issue has probably slowed that process, at least temporarily.
Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt wants to see Sankey add some size, The Tennessean reports. "We'd like him in the 215 to 220 range," head coach Ken Whisenhunt said. "I just feel like as far as having some thump in the A-gap when he has protection or being able to get extra yards on a carry, I think that can help him."

2015

2014

With a build of 5-10, 209 pounds and skill set reminiscent of 2013 breakout Giovani Bernard, Sankey was the top running back taken in this year's draft following a second consecutive huge season at the University of Washington. A strong runner and capable receiver who produced 3,862 yards from scrimmage over the last two seasons, he's in terrific position to supplant incumbent Shonn Greene as the Titans' top rusher in the post-Chris Johnson era. A speedy, athletic running back, Sankey has the vision, burst and cutting ability to shred opposing defenses, particularly when given the ball in space. With that in mind, he's almost certainly ticketed to start out the season as Tennessee's third-down back, which will make him instantly valuable in PPR formats. But because Greene is a plodding, unexciting runner, and the depth chart below them looks pretty barren, it's more than possible that Sankey works his way into a featured role and ends up with around 200 carries to go with 40-plus receptions. Sankey's got the perfect blend of talent and opportunity -- now he just has to stay healthy, something that wasn't an issue for him in college.
