RB - BUF
Bills free agent acquisition RB Matt Breida will have to impress at training camp to earn his roster spot.
Breida brings an element to the Bills' RB room that they currently lack: speed. However, one of the NFL's fastest backs will have to prove his worth this offseason to secure a spot on the roster. Antonio Williams looked solid in a limited fashion in 2020 and will likely be his main competition. Breida's league minimum contract by no means guarantees his place on the roster and could make him a cut candidate if he doesn't show out at training camp.
Former Miami Dolphins RB Matt Breida is expected to sign a one-year deal with the Buffalo Bills, per Ian Rapoport.
Breida was limited due to injuries in Miami throughout the 2020 season, failing to find the end zone on the ground or through the air. He still has game-breaking speed when healthy and can be used as a hybrid receiving back in exotic formations, making his reported one-year deal with the Bills a great fit. Bills rookie RB Zach Moss filled in nicely and took advantage of opportunities at the goal-line in 2020 but third-year RB Devin Singletary should be valued lower heading into the 2021 season, as Breida is likely to be used in-between the 20s, eating into Singletary's primary opportunities.
Josh Tolentino of the Athletic is predicting that the Dolphins won’t bring back RB Matt Breida.
Josh Tolentino of the Athletic is speculating that the Dolphins are not expected to re-sign RB Matt Breida. Miami acquired Breida for a fifth-round pick in 2020, but he fell down the RB depth chart early after struggling most of the 2020 season. The 25-year-old RB logged 59 carries for 254 yards along with nine receptions for 94 yards and no touchdowns last year. Breida is currently a free agent and will most likely latch onto another team during the offseason.
Matt Breida rushed 12 times for 86 yards in the Dolphins' Week 15 victory over the Patriots.
Breida didn't receive any targets in the passing game. Salvon Ahmed led the way with 23 carries but Miami ran the ball enough for both backs to receive double-digit touches. Breida's return dropped DeAndre Washington down in the pecking order. It's unclear how this backfield will shake out if/when Myles Gaskin also returns in Week 16. Ahmed currently has the clearest path to fantasy usefulness.
Maimi Dolphins running back Matt Breida has been activated off the reserve/COVID list.
Breida has been cleared before Myles Gaskin and will be in line for an expanded role if the latter is not cleared in time for Week 15. Breida has been a massive disappointment in his time with the Dolphins but could provide sneaky flex value if both Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed are not cleared to play against the New England Patriots.
