Singletary gained 15 yards on four carries and caught only one of five targets for minus-5 yards in Sunday's 32-30 loss to the Cardinals.
As poor as Singletary's performance was, Zack Moss was just as ineffective, netting 17 yards on eight touches, and Josh Allen wound up leading the Bills in rushing yards. With the team headed into its bye week, Sean McDermott and the coaching staff will get some extra time to figure out how to spark a backfield that has seen a running back top 50 rushing yards only once in the last five games.
Singletary carried two times for one yard and caught all three of his targets for an additional 33 yards during Sunday's 44-34 win over the Seahawks.
Singletary received his lowest total of carries on the season, as Zack Moss and Josh Allen did most of the work on the ground. Singletary topped 30 receiving yards for just the second time this season, but that wasn't enough to propel him to useful fantasy production. This was concerning for Singletary's fantasy outlook, considering he carried the ball 14 times last week and his team played from ahead for most of this one. It now appears his week-to-week role will be difficult to predict. As such, it is difficult to recommend inserting him into fantasy lineups for next Sunday's matchup with the Cardinals.
Singletary rushed 14 times for 86 yards and caught his only target for another six in Sunday's 24-21 win over the Patriots.
Singletary was heavily involved from the get-go with blustering winds creating run-friendly conditions. Buffalo's first four offensive plays were handoffs to Singletary, and the fifth was a pass to the second-year running back. Singletary mustered only 18 yards on those five plays, however, and the pendulum swung Zack Moss's way from there. Moss capped the opening drive with a touchdown and added another score in the third quarter, though Singletary had one more touch and six more scrimmage yards than the rookie. Singletary has scored just one touchdown in eight games compared to Moss's three in five appearances, but they should maintain close to an even split in Week 9 against the Seahawks.
Singletary rushed eight times for 29 yards and caught two of five targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 18-10 win over the Jets.
Singletary had eight carries and five targets to Zack Moss's seven carries and three targets, but the latter finished with a 72-47 edge in scrimmage yards. Considering both running backs already cede a large chunk of Buffalo's rushing workload to quarterback Josh Allen -- who led the team with 11 carries for 61 yards in this one -- Singletary can ill afford to be outplayed by Moss. The second-year back out of FAU will look to bounce back in Week 8 against the Patriots.
Singletary rushed 10 times for 32 yards and caught one of his two targets for 13 yards in Monday's 26-17 loss to the Chiefs.
Singletary couldn't get much going despite rainy conditions favoring a ground-based approach. In the end, Buffalo attempted a season low amount of passes, yet quarterback Josh Allen outgained Singletary with 42 yards on his eight rushes. Furthermore, rookie Zack Moss returned from injury to carry five times, but with just 10 yards, he didn't do anything to make a case for overtaking Singletary. While it'll be interesting to see how those two tailbacks split the snaps and touches going forward, Singletary could use a rebound effort after averaging just 2.7 yards per carry and totaling only 78 yards from scrimmage in Buffalo's last two games. Fortunately, a Week 7 matchup versus the woeful Jets could prove to be just what the doctor ordered for both Singletary and the Bills.
Singletary rushed 11 times for 25 yards and caught his lone target for eight yards in Tuesday's 42-16 loss to Tennessee.
Singletary was held to a season-low yardage total on the ground, despite serving as the lead back with Zack Moss (toe) inactive for a third consecutive game. Veteran backup T.J. Yeldon ended up outplaying Singletary, with 52 rushing yards on seven carries and a receiving touchdown. The Bills' next opponent is a Chiefs team that has been vulnerable on the ground, but Singletary will face competition for carries, especially if Moss is able to return.
Singletary carried 18 times for 55 yards and a touchdown while catching five of six targets for another 21 yards during Sunday's 30-23 win over the Raiders.
Singletary managed just 3.1 yards per carry and received a season-high 18 totes with rookie Zack Moss (toe) out of action. He totaled just 76 yards on 23 total touches but salvaged his day from a fantasy perspective with a two-yard touchdown plunge in the fourth quarter. Singletary seems to have earned a starring role in the Buffalo backfield for the time being, but the team would surely like to see him do more with his looks next Sunday against the Titans.
Singletary's teammate Zack Moss is inactive for Sunday's game in Las Vegas.
While T.J. Yeldon will suit up, Moss not being out there leaves Singletary as the bell-cow back for another game. Singletary didn't score last week -- in fact, no Bills running back has rushed for a touchdown since Week 9 of last season -- but he did post 121 yards from scrimmage. Expect the second-year man to be plenty involved in both sides of the offense today.
Singletary rushed 13 times for 71 yards and caught four of five targets for 50 yards in Sunday's 35-32 win over the Rams.
Singletary carried the rushing load with Zack Moss (toe) out, as T.J. Yeldon (three carries for 18 yards) was the only other running back to touch the ball for the Bills. Singletary failed to get into the end zone on a direct snap from the one-yard line in the first quarter and ended up watching quarterback Josh Allen account for five touchdowns from inside the five-yard line, but Singletary's 121 scrimmage yards were eight shy of his combined total from Weeks 1 and 2. While his lack of usage in the red zone puts a cap on Singletary's value, he should be a reliable source of yardage against the Raiders in Week 4.
With Zack Moss (toe) out this week, Singletary should see added carries Sunday against the Rams.
Through the Bills' first two games, Singletary logged 19 rushing attempts for 86 yards while adding seven catches on 10 targets for 43 yards. In that span, Moss carried 17 times for 48 yards and caught three of his four targets for 16 yards and a TD. With Moss unavailable this weekend, Singletary should see the bulk of Buffalo's backfield work versus Los Angeles, with T.J. Yeldon a candidate to be active for the first time this season and see some change-of-pace action. Though the Rams are 2-0, they've allowed 257 rushing yards to date, resulting in solid fantasy results for Ezekiel Elliott in Week 1 and Miles Sanders in Week 2.
Singletary rushed 10 times for 56 yards and brought in two of three targets for 20 yards in the Bills' 31-28 win over the Dolphins on Sunday.
While the Bills backfield situation continues to be a fantasy quagmire, Singletary at least slightly outpaced rookie Zack Moss in rushes during Sunday's contest and also saw two receiving touches to his teammate's none. Singletary also was the more efficient back with 5.6 yards per carry, though Moss's 4.6 figure wasn't disappointing by any stretch. The good news for both backs is that it appears it's them or bust when it comes to Buffalo's ground game, but whether Singletary can do enough to separate from his first-year competitor on a week-to-week basis remains to be seen. Singletary will look to build on Sunday's serviceable numbers against the Rams in a Week 3 home matchup.
Singletary rushed nine times for 30 yards and added five catches for 23 yards on seven targets in Sunday's 27-17 win over the Jets.
Singletary was bottled up by the Jets, but so was Zack Moss (nine carries for 11 yards). Moss made up for his lack of rushing production with a four-yard receiving touchdown, while quarterback Josh Allen scored the team's lone rushing touchdown and led in both carries (14) and rushing yards (57). Singletary still has time to carve out a larger role in the crowded Buffalo backfield (given Allen's propensity to run the ball), but the second-year back will need a better performance in Week 2 against the Dolphins.
It still isn't clear how the Bills' backfield workload will be split between Singletary and Zack Moss, according to Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic.
Singletary was an effective runner throughout his rookie season and showed development as a receiving threat late in the year, but he also fumbled four times and apparently wasn't consistent in pass protection. The 223-pound Moss is a better bet to handle short-yardage work, but Singletary still figures to be the nominal starter and quite possibly the lead runner. Reports of fumbling issues at camp were probably overblown, as it was only two instances through seven practices, and we haven't heard any evidence the problem continued. For what it's worth, Singletary had only five fumbles on 765 touches in his college career, and Moss had only six on 778 touches.
Singletary has fumbled twice through seven padded practices, Matthew Fairburn and Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.
We shouldn't jump to conclusions based on a small sample from practice, but this is at least worth making a note of once Singletary's recent history -- four fumbles last year -- is taken into account. On the other hand, he fumbled only five times on 765 touches at Florida Atlantic, with none of those coming in his final season. Even so, any struggles could encourage the Bills to give more work to third-round rookie Zack Moss, who has yet to fumble in practice and seems to be making a strong impression on the Buffalo beat reporters. It appears both Singletary and Moss could enter Week 1 against the Jets with significant roles.
Singletary had a tough practice Thursday, getting bottled up on runs between the tackles and even fumbling one time, Joe Buscaglia and Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic reports.
Meanwhile, rookie third-round pick Zack Moss thoroughly impressed, showing great vision and finishing explosive runs with his physicality. Moss has two inches and 20 pounds on the 5-foot-7, 203-pound Singletary, which could inhibit the latter from getting some early down work in 2020. In particular, though, Singletary's ball-control issues reared their head again. Last season, he was tied for second in the NFL with four fumbles, averaging one every 45 touches. With Moss swapping in for Frank Gore in the Bills backfield, Singletary may have a difficult path to average 15 touches per game, as he did as a 2019 third-rounder last season.
Singletary could be in for some competition for carries in 2020 after the Bills selected Utah's Zack Moss in the third round Friday.
For Singletary's sake, we suppose that's better than the team bringing in a top free agent such as Todd Gurley, but Moss was a top-five running back in several prospect rankings and he'll pose a serious threat for carries if he gets his career off to a good start. That said, Singletary did nothing but shine after passing Frank Gore on the depth chart last season, and with perhaps a shortened summer for Moss to get up to speed with his new team, Singletary should still head into the season as the No. 1 back. Moss, however, has enough of a pedigree to make this a 1A-1B setup along the same lines that many other teams in the league operate under.
Singletary rushed 13 times for 58 yards and caught six passes for a team-high 76 yards in Saturday's 22-19 overtime playoff loss to Houston.
Singletary was the Bills' top offensive weapon aside from quarterback Josh Allen in this one, finding plenty of room to operate on the ground and as a receiver against the Texans' porous defense. The third-round draft pick finished the regular season with 775 yards and two touchdowns, but most of his numbers came in the second half of the season, when he tallied 603 rushing yards over the final eight games as the team's lead back. Singletary's 5.1 yards per carry were tops amongst qualified running backs this season. The 21-year-old is in prime position for a true breakout in 2020, especially if veteran Frank Gore -- who cut into the rookie's touches significantly this year -- departs via free agency or decides to retire.
Singletary is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jets.
John Brown, Cole Beasley and Dawson Knox will also sit this one out, with the Bills locked into their No. 5 playoff seed.
Singletary rushed 15 times for 46 yards in the team's Week 16 loss to the Patriots. He also added one reception for two yards.
Despite Frank Gore not recording a touch for the first time this season, Singletary was limited as the Bills possessed the ball for just 21 minutes. Even when he did get touches, Singletary averaged only 3.1 yards per carry, with his longest gain going for 12 yards. Though Singletary has shown flashes as a receiver throughout his rookie campaign, he was lightly used through the air for the second consecutive week. He'll look to end the season on a stronger note as the Bills take on the Jets in Week 17, though he may not receive a full allotment of playing time with the Bills' playoff positioning locked in.
Singletary rushed 21 times for 87 yards and caught both of his targets for two yards in Sunday's 17-10 win over Pittsburgh.
Singletary led the Bills' backfield in carries by a decent margin for consecutive weeks, firmly cementing his starting role after playing under the shadow of veteran Frank Gore for the first half of the season. The rookie has displayed big-play ability all year, falling below a 4.0 yards per carry mark just once (Week 7 against Miami). Singletary will face a tough matchup against the Patriots' stout run defense next week, so his ceiling may be a bit lower than in recent weeks. It's worth noting the rookie fumbled twice in the contest -- equaling his previous total for the entire season -- and lost one of them.
