Devin Singletary has taken over this backfield. The sophomore out-carried Moss 10-5 last week, and he was the only one involved in the passing game. That's a lot different from their 9-9 split from Week 1, the Bills' last game against the Jets. As long as Singletary keeps seeing this same level of volume, he's a rock-solid start at flex and is a (very) low-end RB2. Moss is not worth rostering unless this offense changes things up.

Right now, it's difficult to trust any of the Bills RBs after what we've seen from this offense over the past couple of weeks. While it's a good matchup, and the Bills should be running the clock out fairly early on, it's hard to trust Singletary as anything more than a high-end RB3 this week.

The first four weeks of this backfield seemed fruitful for fantasy, even if there would be a guessing game between the two of them. They totaled 409 total yards and two touchdowns through the first four games but have totaled just 162 total yards and one touchdown over the last two games while totaling just 36 touches in the two games combined. What made it worse was that the matchups against the Titans and Chiefs were good ones. Now onto a rematch with the Jets, a defense that held them to 41 yards on 18 carries in the first matchup, though they also added 39 yards and a touchdown through the air. Make no mistake about it; this Jets team has gotten worse since then. They have faced the fifth-most weighted opportunity to running backs this year. Running backs have amassed 30.3 touches per game against them, while running the ball 46.7 percent of the time, which is the seventh-highest mark in the league. The Bills have rushed the ball just 38.6 percent of the time (rank 23rd) to this point, so something has to give. Including that game in Week 1, no team of running backs have totaled fewer than 26 touches against the Jets, so even if they're a better run defense than they're given credit for, there are fantasy points available. Singletary is the best bet, though he's certainly not an upside play. Consider him a high-end RB3 during the bye weeks. Moss had just five carries in his return from injury, though it was a messy game, so maybe they held him back. Whatever the case, it's difficult to trust him until we see him get double-digit opportunities. He really should against the Jets, so consider him an RB4 with a little bit of risk.

The Jets are just 26th against fantasy running backs, Singletary is a solid RB2 on the road this week that should bounce back from two lackluster fantasy performances.
