RB - BUF
Week 3 Outlook
Bills running back Devin Singletary rushed 13 times for 82 yards and a touchdown against the Dolphins in Week 1. He also caught two of three targets for an additional nine yards through the air.
Singletary was the clear leader of this backfield despite the return of Zack Moss, who was a healthy scratch in Week 1. While more than half of Singletary's yardage came on one big touchdown run, it was still important that he put up a big fantasy performance. He can be trusted as a low-end FLEX option going forward considering Moss does not pose much of a threat.
Bills running back Devin Singletary carried the ball 11 times for 72 yards against the Steelers in Week 1. He also caught three of five targets for eight receiving yards.
Singletary was given the starting role after the Bills ruled out Zack Moss (coach's decision). He looked solid during the opener, with his 6.5 yards per carry serving as the highlight. Bottom line: when given the opportunity to assert himself on Sunday, Singletary did a solid job. It will be interesting to see how Buffalo handles its backfield going forward.
Buffalo Bills RB Devin Singletary had two carries for 21 yards and one touchdown in preseason win vs the Chicago Bears.
Even with Singletary finding pay dirt the Buffalo RB situation is still one without a clear leader. Singletary got limited playing time, but did start the first two Buffalo series before Zack Moss got his opportunity to show what he could do. Both RB's had less than five carries and totaled 21 rushing yards before their days were over. Singletary did also have a five yard catch but it will likely take until the start of the season to see who the Bills trust more or if they will proceed with a RB by committee situation.
Bills RB Devin Singletary carried the ball eight times for 42 yards and caught his lone target for a six-yard touchdown in Friday night's Preseason Week 1 win over the Lions.
Zack Moss is dealing with a hamstring injury, leaving additional opportunities for Singletary and Matt Breida to carve out roles for themselves in this twisted backfield for fantasy football. Though he did score the team's lone touchdown, Singletary also managed 5.3 yards per touch in the 2021 preseason debut.
Bills General Manager Brandon Beane held a Zoom conference call with local reporters Tuesday, saying, "I don’t think either one of our backs are home run hitters, so is there an elite trait that this [potential rookie back] has and says, ‘Man, he’s got something we don’t have.’ That’s probably the conversation, versus, ‘OK, are we going to take the same type of back as Devin, are we gonna take the same type of back as Zack? Because even those two guys have different skill sets.”
Beane added, "I’m not going into this draft going, ‘Man we got to find some back here in the top few rounds or anything like that.'" If the Bills add a home run hitter at back, though, Josh Allen's rushing touchdowns could decrease. The rookie back would be able to score from further out, potentially decreasing Red Zone trips. In this scenario, we'll have to wait until training camp to gauge if one back has a path to be the clear-cut dominator of the team's backfield touches, though.
