The Chiefs have signed RB Bishop Sankey off the Patriots' practice squad. They need a warm body in the backfield with Spencer Ware (concussion) and Jamaal Charles (knee) iffy for Sunday's game against Jacksonville. Sankey has been a colossal bust since being selected in the 2nd round of the 2014 draft, averaging 3.8 yards per carry with just 4 total TDs. He'll back up RB Charcandrick West if Ware and Charles are both out this weekend. Sankey isn't worth adding to fantasy rosters.

The Titans have released RB Bishop Sankey. The 2014 2nd-rounder was a colossal bust, averaging 3.8 yards per carry with 4 total TDs across 2 seasons in Tennessee. He was buried on the depth chart all summer. Sankey figures to get another shot elsewhere -- we've heard him linked to the Patriots -- but is well off the fantasy radar for now. Tennessee also released mega-bust WR Justin Hunter

Titans RB Bishop Sankey failed to register a carry for the 2nd straight week. It sounds like that trend will continue, too. “I don’t know that he’s necessarily benched,” HC Ken Whisenhunt said of Sankey, “but Antonio [Andrews] and Dexter [McCluster] are both playing well. You’ve certainly got to continue with those guys.” Sankey should be dropped in all redraft leagues.

Titans HC Ken Whisenhunt plans to continue deploying a committee backfield going forward.  “I don’t know what it’s going to be next week or the next week that we play,” Whiz said. “That’s going to go from week to week.”  Tennessee ranked 10th in the NFL in rushing yards through 3 weeks, but none of their RBs were sitting higher than 29th.  They've had a different RB lead the way in rushing in each of the first 3 games.  Bishop Sankey and Antonio Andrews are worth owning in leagues of 12+ teams, but neither will be a safe fantasy play when the Titans come out of their Week 4 bye.

Titans insider Paul Kuharsky expects a backfield by committee this season. Bishop Sankey and David Cobb will be the leaders of that committee, according to Kuharsky, with Dexter McCluster and potentially Antonio Andrews also mixing in. Sankey and Cobb would seem to form a nice duo, with the former handling the outside runs and pass-catching duties and the latter serving as the between-the-tackles, short-yardage back. Of course, that setup would make both guys tough to trust in fantasy lineups. We’ll continue to keep an eye on this backfield over the next month to see if 1 guy emerges as a true feature back.
