Bishop Sankey (TEN) –  The first running back taken in the 2014 NFL Draft finally got some meaningful carries in the Titans’ disappointing loss to Cincinnati on Sunday. Coach Whisenhunt may finally be leaning towards Sankey, given the uptick in snaps the rookie back saw in averaging 6.1 yards per carry this past Sunday.

    Matt Asiata (MIN) – Alright, first off — I do not think Asiata is a very good running back. However, he has a great match-up this week and is clearly the top back in Minnesota in Adrian Peterson’s absence.

    In week 4, Asiata takes on the Atlanta Falcons defense which has given up an average of 25+ points per week to opposing running backs.

    They allowed Mark Ingram to trample them for 18 fantasy points in Week 1 (Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson had eight apiece as well) and Giovani Bernard went for 22 in Week 2 (Jeremy Hill added 15 more). Asiata should have a very nice week.

    Start him if you have him.
