Bills' Devin Singletary: Limited impact as lead back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Singletary carried six times for 17 yards and caught two of three targets for nine yards Sunday in the Bills' 38-24 loss to the Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game.

Singletary received the opportunity to work as the Bills' lead man out of the backfield for the team's final two playoff games while Zack Moss (ankle) was sidelined, but the Florida Atlantic product was mainly an afterthought in Buffalo's pass-happy offense. He logged just 13 carries between the Bills' divisional-round win over the Ravens and the loss to Kansas City, mustering only 42 yards. Assuming he experiences no complications in his recovery from offseason ankle surgery, Moss should open 2021 as Option 1A on the ground, relegating Singletary to more of a change-of-pace role.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Logs 10 touches in divisional round
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Singletary registered 25 yards on seven carries, securing all three of his targets for 12 receiving yards during Saturday's 17-3 divisional-round win against the Ravens.

Singletary entered the playoff bout with just six combined carries for 28 yards over his two preceding outings. However, he was expected to experience an uptick in offensive usage with backfield mate Zack Moss (ankle) moved to IR on Tuesday. That didn't turn out to be the case, necessarily. After seeing Baltimore contain NFL rushing champion Derrick Henry to 40 yards over 18 carries during the wild-card round, Buffalo elected to open up the game with passes on 19 of the team's first 20 plays from scrimmage. Buffalo ultimately threw 37 times compared to 16 total rush attempts, but the team may choose to deploy a slightly more run-heavy game script if tasked with an AFC Championship Game matchup against Patrick Mahomes and the explosive Chiefs offense. A showdown with the Browns would be challenging, as it would offer a home matchup against the NFL's ninth-ranked rush defense.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Ticketed for more work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With Zack Moss (ankle) expected to miss the rest of the playoffs, Singletary is set for the lead role in Buffalo's backfield, USA Today's Bradley Gelber reports.

Moss and Singletary worked in a 50/50 split for most of the season, apart from Weeks 3-5 when the rookie was out with a toe injury. Singletary handled 89, 89 and 63 percent of offensive snaps in those three games, averaging 14.0 carries for 50.7 yards and 0.33 TDs, plus 3.3 catches for 26.3 yards on 4.0 targets. The Bills could turn to Singletary in an every-down role again, but they also might let T.J. Yeldon and/or Taiwan Jones handle some snaps this Saturday against the Ravens.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Six touches in playoff win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Singletary rushed three times for 21 yards and caught all three of his targets for 23 yards in Saturday's 27-24 wild-card round win over the Colts.

Singletary played second fiddle to Zack Moss (seven carries, four catches) for most of the game but took over as the lead back after Moss was carted off with an ankle injury early in the fourth quarter. The running back position is an afterthought in a Bills offense that relies mostly on quarterback Josh Allen in all situations, as evidenced by Allen's 35 pass attempts and team-high 11 rushing attempts. That said, Singletary should see an uptick in workload in the AFC divisional round next week if Moss is unavailable.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Limited Week 17 action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Singletary carried the ball three times for just seven yards in Sunday's win over Miami and caught his only target for six yards.

The Bills rested most of their starters for the second half of the regular-season finale, so Singletary should be fresh when the Bills meet the Colts to open up the playoff slate Saturday. Even though he was healthy just about the entire season, it was a terrible campaign by fantasy standards for the second-year back out of Florida Atlantic. Singletary played every game and still didn't hit 1,000 yards from scrimmage, often ceding important work to rookie Zack Moss. Singletary finished 32nd among running backs in half-point PPR formats, far below his draft-day value and behind the likes of free-agent pickups such as Nyheim Hines, Chase Edmonds and Jeff Wilson.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Tops 50 scrimmage yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Singletary rushed 10 times for 36 yards and caught both of his targets for 16 yards in Monday night's 38-9 win over the Patriots.

Singletary had a couple gains of 10-plus yards, but otherwise was held in check. In comparison, running mate Zack Moss rushed 10 times for 57 yards and a touchdown and caught one pass for no yards. Given Buffalo's backfield rotation, Singletary's weekly upside remains capped to a degree, but with double-digit touches in now four of his last five games, Singletary's usage is enough to warrant reasonable value ahead of Sunday's season finale versus the Dolphins, a game in which the Bills may put their best foot forward in an attempt to secure the No. 2 seed in the AFC.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Breaks off 51-yard TD run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Singletary ran for 68 yards and a touchdown on eight carries, corralling all three of his targets for 16 yards during Saturday's 48-19 win against the Broncos.

Singletary led the Bills' running back committee with 39 snaps, but Zack Moss paced the team in both carries (13) and rushing yardage (81) during a dominant road win. A 51-yard TD run with 1:40 remaining in regulation salvaged a solid fantasy day from Singletary, simultaneously providing the back with his first rushing score since Week 4. He's been held to single-digit carries in consecutive outings, but he'll get a chance to build off the explosive late-game contribution next week when the Bills take on the Patriots' No. 23 rush defense.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Quiet in SNF win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Singletary rushed seven times for 32 yards and caught his lone target for two more yards in Sunday's 26-15 win over Pittsburgh.

Singletary saw his share of carries nearly halved in favor of Zack Moss, despite the former averaging 4.6 yards per carry compared to the latter's sub-par mark of 3.3 yards per carry. Perhaps it was based on the matchup, but the role reversal did not jeopardize the outcome for the Bills, only the outcome for those who were relying on Singletary to contribute his usual 12-15 touches. While Moss ended up with the larger workload Sunday night, it is clear that this is a two-back system being run in Buffalo, limiting both players' values while also keeping them relevant enough for deeper formats heading into a matchup with Denver on Saturday.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Heavy workload in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Singletary rushed 18 times for 61 yards and secured three of four targets for 22 yards in the Bills' 34-24 win over the 49ers on Monday night.

Zack Moss was part of a fumbled exchange with Josh Allen at the Bills' three-yard line early in the first quarter, a miscue that led to the 49ers' first touchdown of the night. Singletary essentially became the exclusive back from that point forward, tying his highest number of carries on the season. The second-year back also logged three receptions for the second straight game and third time in the last four contests. Singletary now has consecutive games with double-digit rush attempts for the first time since Weeks 5-6, and he'll look to extend that streak against the stingy run defense of the Steelers in Week 14.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Tops 100 scrimmage yards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Singletary rushed 11 times for 82 yards and caught all three of his targets for 20 yards in Sunday's 27-17 win over the Chargers. He also lost a fumble.

Both Singletary and Zack Moss (nine carries for 59 yards) were effective on the ground, but quarterback Josh Allen scored Buffalo's lone rushing touchdown. With both Allen and Moss cutting into his production, Singletary has mustered just one touchdown heading into a Week 13 date with the 49ers. On the bright side, Singletary topped 100 scrimmage yards for just the second time all season.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Poor effort in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Receives five touches vs. Seahawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Near-even workload split with Moss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Under 50 yards against Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Held in check by Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Season-low rushing total in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Scores TD vs. Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Teammate sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Tops 100 scrimmage yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bills' Devin Singletary: Should see more work in Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
