  1. 7th round rb is pretty much a slouchSay what you want. He is talented and is built like an every down back...It is just a matter of time before the Storm hits Jacksonville!!! Storm averaged 6.75 ypc today..... A Storm is blowin in!
  2. THE LAUNCHING OCCURS ON SUNDAY! Tennessee's schedule in the weeks ahead is extremely running back-friendly, as the team will face Cleveland, Jacksonville, Washington and Houston over its next four games. At present, those defense rank 29th, 25th, 8th and 24th against the run. He was an enormously productive collegiate player at Washington, despite running behind an occasionally sketchy O-line.
  3. Look at these three runs - feel free to send/pm these links to Matt Waldman, Cecil Lammey, and Sigmund Bloom as well. They ALL don't think that he is special!!! http://sportscenterlive.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/SANKY-1.gif http://sportscenterlive.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/SANKY-2.gif http://giant.gfycat.com/NaiveGiddyAndalusianhorse.gif
  4. Did you want more Bishop Sankey? Because that's what we're going to get Bishop Sankey arrived in the NFL as the top running back selected in his draft class, a rookie of great interest to the fantasy community. Back in May, it seemed as if Sankey had an unobstructed path to a serious workload in Tennessee. His primary rival for carries, after all, was the lumbering husk of Shonn Greene. Here we are in October, however, and Greene has actually out-carried Sankey 33 to 24, out-snapping him 67 to 66. But the rookie has averaged 5.1 yards per tote on the season (5.9 over the last two weeks), so it's not as if he's struggling. Still, Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt has found reasons to limit Sankey's workload, which of course is his prerogative. Finally, Whiz has reached the point where he'd like to lean a bit more on his second-round RB. This from The Tennessean's John Glennon: "You will see [more reps for Sankey]. That's coming," Whisenhunt said on the show. "And I think you'll see more of that earlier in the game this week." "There's only so much that a young guy, you can throw on his plate, because you want him to continue on this curve where he is improving and getting better," Whisenhunt said. "He's made strides and done some of the things we've asked him, and in turn, he's going to get more reps and they're going to be earlier in the game." Good news all around for Sankey investors. Tennessee's schedule in the weeks ahead is extremely running back-friendly, as the team will face Cleveland, Jacksonville, Washington and Houston over its next four games. At present, those defense rank 29th, 25th, 8th and 24th against the run. So Sankey will have an excellent shot to justify the summer hype. He was an enormously productive collegiate player at Washington, despite running behind an occasionally sketchy O-line. (His tape from 2012 was particularly impressive, when you consider the line play.) At the moment, Sankey is still available in 36 percent of Yahoo leagues, so a few thousand of you can still make the add. You obviously do not want to own multiple shares of the Titans offense, but this one is worth a try.
  5. GREAT Dynasty Stash!! I am not so high on his dynasty potential, but he is a must have handcuff for J Charles's owner.Why? Is he TOO BIG, STRONG, AND FAST???... This guy is an Effin STUD! He is going to ROLL in Charles absence... Charles might return to a full blown RBBC... Reid doesn't do committees.Looks like he does now!
  6. He is going to be a STUD! He got his 1st TD this week. It's going to be the first of many...
  7. Those guys were not wrong about last year. He looked totally different when he had that extra weight on. He improved...........and nobody saw him improving this much did they?? Did they????? Cloppbeast did - read his comments below that disagree with Bronco Billy...I went to the joint practice on Wednesday between the Bills and Steelers, paying particular attention to the backs. I don't call myself a professional scout, but I could at least see that Bell has better burst and speed. Certainly Blount has many other attributes contributing to his ability, but I definitely question you at labeling Bell a 'plodder' in this conversation. Each of these runners has their own abilities, but if either one of them is a 'plodder', it's Blount.
  8. Bell would not set a precedent if he improved his rookie efficiency. Isn't a little unfair to compare Bell's rookie ypc to the veteran Blount's? Why? How would you compare their running abilities if not by using what they have done to date in their NFL careers?And please take note that I gave Bell a 10% increase in his production on the ground, as well adding an increase over the average numbers of carries for PIT, and gave the top two RBs a generous portion. I thought I was being pretty optimistic given that. Is that not enough in your opinion? I don't have an issue with your projections, only how you compared the two players. You could give Bell a 20% increase but it wouldn't change your tone in contrasting these two running backs. A veteran who has played behind much better offensive lines should have a higher ypc than a rookie. There's better ways to compare players, especially when one of them only has 1 season of numbers for use. I went to the joint practice on Wednesday between the Bills and Steelers, paying particular attention to the backs. I don't call myself a professional scout, but I could at least see that Bell has better burst and speed. Certainly Blount has many other attributes contributing to his ability, but I definitely question you at labeling Bell a 'plodder' in this conversation. Each of these runners has their own abilities, but if either one of them is a 'plodder', it's Blount. To each their own I guess. I've seen plenty of Bell in college and now the NFL. Special is not an adjective that I would use the describe his ability. And again, comparing how RBs perform against NFL Ds seems like a reasonable method to gage their relative abilities, but if you don't believe so then I'm not sure we're going to ever agree. I don't care how great a guy looks, I care about production. Blount has done it with multiple teams even when he started the season as an after thought. Bell was not productive and could not generate running room on his own from what I've seen. If you want to simply dismiss that based upon how they look in practice it's your prerogative. NICE CALL BRONCO BILLY...PLODDER AND NOT SPECIAL - HUH, YOU DONT SAY.......... Nice call Cloppbeast!!!
  9. In a game that provided little to be encouraged about, one good development for the Tennessee Titans in Sunday’s loss at Cincinnati was the second-half play of running back Bishop Sankey. We saw six carries for 20 yards in Kansas City, and against Dallas he carried just twice for 3 yards. But against the Bengals, he received 10 carries for 61 yards, an effort that should get him more looks in games to come. He was especially impressive on the Titans' first drive of the third quarter, when he gained 18, 4, 9, 9, 2 and 22 yards on consecutive plays. The last of those was erased because of a hold by left guard Andy Levitre. The Titans looked to pass on the next three plays, starting with first-and-20, and got a 6-yard gain from Justin Hunter, an incompletion for Delanie Walker and a 5-yard sack of quarterback Jake Locker. Sankey said a quicker pace for the offense helped. "We picked the tempo up coming out at halftime, picked the tempo up with no huddle," he said. "We were just getting some good blocks with good creases and we [were] just rolling with it. We had some momentum and it seemed like we had a drive there for a second there. Unfortunately we stalled out in the end. So that’s pretty much how the success went coming out in the second half."
  10. (i completely agree.)but but but, he had a 1300 yard season 3 years ago!!! He looks great now - and he has plenty of wiggle!
