|Shonn Greene saw his fantasy stock plunge when he was employed as the short yardage specialist behind Chris Johnson last year. The net results were a career-low 77 rushing attempts and off-season knee surgery that kept him out of OTAs and mini camp. The addition of Bishop Sankey and Dexter McCluster combined with the presence of Jackie Battle mean Greene's fantasy upside is likely to remain limited. If Greene is able to use training camp to work his way back to full health, he should be the first choice near the goal line. Greene's conversion rate is decent; however, opportunities to increase his volume of work are not nearly as rewarding as other backfield vultures. As a touchdown-or-bust player with significant health risk on a team that is expected to be in the lower half of the league in offensive output, Greene is a risky investment for the 2104 fantasy campaign.
| Shonn Greene Doubtful, hamstring|
Bishop Sankey expected to start at running back
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 17, 1:15 pm
|Titans running back Shonn Greene (hamstring), tight end Taylor Thompson (knee) and cornerback Coty Sensabaugh (knee) all missed practice again on Friday and none of the three is expected to play on Sunday against the Redskins.
All three are listed on the team's Injury report as doubtful.
FFToday's Take: Greene's absence means Bishop Sankey is likely get the start again at running back and receive the bulk of the carries in Week 7. He's an RB2 or Flex play against the Redskins defense that only gives up 12.4 fantasy points to running backs.
|Sankey elevated to No. 2 on Titans depth chart|
Rookie still behind Greene, but ahead of McCluster

|Rookie running back Bishop Sankey is now the No. 2 running back, still behind Shonn Greene but now ahead of Dexter McCluster. All three will be part of the rotation and game plans and matchups will do a lot to dictate their usage. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: It's too early to say who will end up getting the bulk of carries this season, because Snakey is the more dynamic back but Greene is an experienced plodder who knows the offense. Sankey still has more upside, but Greene could end up surprising this season with decent numbers.
