FantasyPros
Gordon should receive the majority of the touches in this game if Lindsay is not able to suit up. Due to the volume, Gordon should be viewed as a mid-range RB2.Moss has started to become more involved in this offense the past couple of weeks as he works his way back from an injury. He's seen his snap counts go from 25% in week six to 46% in week seven. Meanwhile, Singletary's are trending downward. Moss has the opportunity to score in this offense with his work inside the red zone and he should continue to see more opportunity with Singletary struggling mightily. Moss is worth rostering and potentially plugging into your lineup as a bye week fill-in option that could pay off.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Revenge game! Gordon and the Chargers obviously have a history and it wasn't a pretty one on his exit. He might have the backfield to himself, as Lindsay suffered a concussion in Week 7 and is going through the protocol. It is worth noting that Lindsay got the start last week versus the Chiefs, so if he plays, we have to dial back expectations for Gordon. We watched James Robinson play well against the Chargers last week, but as a defense, they've allowed just 57.5 fantasy points on the ground to running backs, which is the second-lowest number in the league behind only the Ravens. Fortunately, Gordon is involved in the passing game and ranks 21st among all running backs in routes despite having his bye and missing another week. The Chargers have allowed 87.9 PPR points through the air to running backs, which is the seventh-highest number in the league. There have been six running backs who've caught at least four passes, including four who've caught six or more. Gordon would love to stick it to his old team, and if Lindsay is out, it would give him a lot of opportunity to do just that. Gordon should be treated as a rock-solid RB2 if Lindsay were held out, but would move down into high-end RB3 territory if Lindsay plays. Lindsay himself would be a low-end RB3 if he played because despite him starting over Gordon, he's been non-existent in the passing game, which has been necessary for fantasy points against the Chargers.It's no secret that the Bills are struggling to run the ball. Because of that, we've watched them pass the ball on 61.1 percent of their plays, but will that change against the Patriots who've faced a run-play on 50.1 percent of snaps, which is the second-highest number in the league? And if they do, who'll get more touches? Both Singletary and Moss finished with 10 touches last week, though it was Moss who was more efficient, totaling 72 yards to Singletary's 47 yards. The Patriots have allowed a stable 4.59 yards per carry and 6.55 yards per target to running backs, but they've only faced the fourth-lowest weighted opportunity, which has limited production. How is that possible if teams are running the ball on 50.1 percent of snaps? Well, their opponents have averaged just 59.2 plays per game, which is the second-lowest number in the league. Knowing the Bills running backs have averaged 20.7 touches per game despite running 64.0 plays per game is not ideal. Even if we put them at a 50/50 timeshare, we have no guaranteed that either of them finishes with 10 touches. Singletary has been trending in the wrong direction, as his snaps have gone 55, 54, 45, 41, 40 over the last five games. He's slowly losing the grip on the primary back, as Moss played 35 snaps last week. Both of these running backs are in the low-end RB3/flex conversation, but it might be wise to predict the switch before it happens, so I'll say I prefer Moss.

The Chargers are 13th against fantasy running backs, Gordon is a low-upside RB2 against his former team.
