Titans RB Bishop Sankey has 'fumbling issues'


Titans RB Bishop Sankey has 'fumbling issues'

Following up on a previous report about Bishop Sankey's ball-security problem, the Nashville Tennessean speculates that Sankey's "fumbling issues" may "cost him" this season. This is the second time the outlet has remarked on Sankey's issues with holding onto the ball, and it comes after the rookie fumbled in Friday's preseason game. He has also had a difficult time with taking handoffs cleanly in camp. Sankey is expected to be the Titans' top RB, followed up by veteran Shonn Greene.

Fantasy Analysis:

This is troubling. Like we saw last season with RB Stevan Ridley in New England, fumbling problems can result in a major loss of playing time. It's too early to brand Sankey a fumbler, but if he's going to be the workhorse back that fantasy owners hope he can be, he'll need to keep possession of the ball. Sankey is being drafted very early for a rookie RB, going as the 21st back off the board in fantasy drafts. He'll need to take the majority of the Titans' carries to justify that valuation. And to get that kind of workload, he has to hold on to the ball. If he fumbles in Tennessee's third preseason game, fantasy owners may want to reconsider spending a high draft pick on Sankey.
