What to do with Devin Singletary, Frank Gore in Week 11 fantasy football

Devin Singletary continues to play well but accumulating touches has been difficult for the rookie. How will he split work with Frank Gore in Miami in Week 11?

Devin Singletary broke out against Washington two weeks ago for 140 yards and a touchdown on 23 touches. Sadly, he came crashing back down the next week against Cleveland with 11 touches for 50 yards. Singletary looked good and deserved more work. The good news is that he had seven targets and saw his most significant snap percentage on the season. Frank Gore did see just six touches for 16 yards while Josh Allen ran the ball six times for 28 yards and a touchdown.

With Allen and Gore there, Singletary is going to have trouble reaching his 23 touches again, and he’ll have difficulty getting short touchdown runs. But his upside remains high due to his ability and this week, his matchup.

Fantasy football analysis: Buffalo Bills RB Devin Singletary, Frank Gore

The Dolphins run defense continues its poor play, as they rank fifth-worst in fantasy points allowed to running backs. Seven backs have surpassed 100 total yards against them, and they allow 4.76 yards per carry. Only Washington allows more running back touches per game, so there should be plenty of work to go around.

Frank Gore returns to one of his old teams and his hometown, so there is some “revenge” narrative baked in, but Gore has been awful when not give a significant workload, and I expect that to continue, even in this plus matchup.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Singletary.

Sit Gore.
