Bills' Devin Singletary: Still awaiting injury feedback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Sean McDermott said Monday the team is still gathering information regarding Singletary's hamstring injury and that the running back is day-to-day for now, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

At least it's not the "he's out for several months" news we're seeing throughout the league on a dark Monday. Singletary has made the most out of limited opportunities behind Frank Gore, carrying 10 times for 127 yards and his first NFL touchdown run Sunday, as well as a 5-28-0 line on six targets in the passing game. His arrow is trending upward if the hamstring injury isn't significant, something we'll likely know more about when the Bills resume practicing Wednesday.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Suffers hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Singletary was forced out of Sunday's game against the Giants with a hamstring injury.

Prior to his exit from the contest, Singletary had logged six carries for 57 yards and a TD, while working behind veteran back Frank Gore.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Still No. 2 on paper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Sean McDermott stated Wednesday that Frank Gore remains the team's top running back on the depth chart with Singletary as the No. 2, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. "Frank Gore and then we bring in Devin [Singletary] and then we bring in TJ [Yeldon]," McDermott said, when asked about the team's starting running back.

Singletary outgained the veteran 70-20 in terms of yards on the ground, and he did it in just four carries to Gore's 20. Singletary was also on the field for 48 offensive snaps (the team had 69) to Gore's 19. The third-round rookie is also a lot quicker and more athletic than his 36-year-old teammate, so it may only be a matter of time before he passes the veteran on the depth chart. However, he'll still be seeing plenty of action even while McDermott gives Gore some regular work as part of a committee.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Nearly 100 yards after halftime
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Singletary rushed four times for 70 yards and caught five of six targets for 28 more in Sunday's 17-16 win over the Jets.

All 98 of Singletary's scrimmage yards came after halftime. He got only four carries to Frank Gore's 11, but Singletary looked significantly more explosive and finished with 50 more yards on the ground. While the Bills' offense is likely to remain among the league's worst, the rookie third-rounder out of Florida Atlantic seems poised to take over the majority of the rushing workload given the burst he showed in this one.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Could be used as returner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Singletary is an option in the return game for Week 1 with teammate Andre Roberts already being ruled out. "We've got some options there," coach Sean McDermott told the Bills' official site. "Whether it's (Robert) Foster, Devin Singletary, (Isaiah) McKenzie, (Micah) Hyde. We've got some guys who have some experience there."

Singletary may have the best moves of all those candidates, but the Bills may also be hesitant to put a rookie back there, one that didn't have a return in the preseason -- or since his freshman year in college, for that matter. He remains a true wild-card upside play until the offense sorts itself, as the Bills say they're rolling out a committee to start between Singletary, Frank Gore and T.J. Yeldon. Singletary has by far the most upside of the three backs, so if he can get past the inexperience issue and prove he can block, he could be seeing a meaningful number of carries quickly.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Listed behind Gore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bills' posted running back depth chart lists Singletary behind Frank Gore and ahead of T.J. Yeldon.

That said, with LeSean McCoy no longer in the picture, Singletary is poised to be a big part of the team's rushing attack this season and carries the most upside of the three backs, who are now in line to work as a committee out of the gate this season, per the team's official site. As is the case in any time-share, a "hot hand" approach could tilt things toward one back or another, but while Gore's status as an experienced veteran probably helps his case early on and certainly gives him any depth-chart tiebreaker for appearance purposes, we'd expect Singletary's responsibilities to grow as the season progresses. There's also a chance the speedy, shifty Singletary may be used on kick returns as well.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Sees boost with McCoy release
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Singletary is poised to receive a significant share of the backfield carries after the release of LeSean McCoy, which was reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter on Saturday.

While the Bills made a point of suggesting McCoy was still "the guy" in Buffalo after drafting Singletary in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft, that thought process quickly dissipated after the rookie put together an excellent training camp. The 21-year-old will likely still split time with Frank Gore and T.J. Yeldon to start, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Singletary take on more of the backfield reps as the season progresses considering Gore's advanced age (36 years old) and Yeldon's pigeonholed role as the pass-catching threat out of the backfield.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Totals 31 yards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Singletary caught three of five passes for 25 yards and added six yard on two carries during Friday's 27-14 win over Carolina.

Singletary rotated in on Buffalo's opening field-goal drive becoming the featured back two drives later. It's been so far so good for the rookie back, who is the young gun in a sea of veteran backs in Western New York. After coming out of Florida Atlantic, he has reportedly garnered first-team reps in camp and has put together some solid -- if not strong -- preseason appearances. Singletary might be a big part of the Bills' future. The question is whether their present holds on long enough in 2019 to make him a relative non-factor as a rookie.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Compiles 48 total yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Singletary rushed nine times for 27 yards and brought in all three of his targets for 21 more yards in the Bills' 24-16 preseason win over the Colts on Thursday.

The rookie third-round pick saw the heaviest workload of all the Bills' running backs, and his three receptions actually led all the team's pass catchers as well. Singletary is currently slotted third on the team's first unofficial depth chart, but if Thursday's exhibition opener is any indication, it's clear coach Sean McDermott plans to give the Florida Atlantic product a long look in preseason. The real upside for Singletary is if anything were to happen to LeSean McCoy, or if the Bills eventually decided to punt on the veteran's salary.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Solid depth chart positioning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Singletary is listed as the third running back on the Bills' first unofficial depth chart.

The key takeaway here is that the rookie third-rounder from Florida Atlantic is already ahead of veteran T.J. Yeldon on the depth chart. As expected, Singletary is behind LeSean McCoy and Frank Gore, but those two are well on the wrong side of 30, and it's not even a certainty both will be with the team all season. The shifty Singletary is a good upside play toward the end of drafts.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Handles some first-team snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Singletary rotated in with the first-team offense during the offseason program, Nate Mendelson of the Bills' official website reports.

LeSean McCoy and Frank Gore also got work with the starters, while T.J. Yeldon curiously isn't mentioned, though he'll at least have a shot to win a role on passing downs. Bills general manager Brandon Beane has made multiple comments about McCoy retaining the starting job, and while that may ultimately be the case, the Bills could be headed for some type of committee as opposed to McCoy doing nearly all the work, as has happened in the past. It isn't quite clear how the team might use Singletary, a 203-pound rookie who ran a 4.66 40-yard dash at the combine. Few running backs with his size/speed profile have found NFL success, but a college career with 66 rushing touchdowns in three seasons was enough to convince the Bills he's worthy of a third-round pick.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Buffalo bound
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bills selected Singletary in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 74th overall.

The man nicknamed "Motor" adds some much-needed youth to a Buffalo backfield headlined by LeSean McCoy and Frank Gore. Singletary's production at Florida Atlantic is second to none compared to his fellow running backs in this class. He racked up 66 career rushing touchdowns in three seasons, highlighted by a 32-touchdown campaign in 2017. Singletary (5-foot-7, 203 pounds) uses his low center of gravity to his advantage and is tough for opposing defenses to find in the backfield. He will have to fight for carries early in his career as long as McCoy, For and T.J. Yeldon are in the fold, but the backfield could be Singletary's by 2020.
