Devin Singletary returns to practice Thursday of Week 4

Bills running back Devin Singletary is back at practice after missing last week due to a hamstring injury. We break down the fantasy implications for him, Frank Gore, and T.J. Yeldon heading into Week 4 vs. the Patriots.

The 3-0 Buffalo Bills face their stiffest challenge to date on their 2019 schedule when they host the 3-0 New England Patriots in Week 4. The Bills are hoping to have a key weapon back in the mix as running back Devin Singletary returned to practice on Thursday, per Bills beat writer Matthew Fairburn.

Singletary injured his hamstring in Week 2, and has been sidelined ever since. He was a DNP at Wednesday’s practice, but was back on the field on Thursday. We’ll know his final status on Friday afternoon, but given the nature of hamstring injuries, it would not be surprising to see him listed as questionable and a game-time decision.

Fantasy impact: Frank Gore has been the team’s starter, with T.J. Yeldon as the primary backup. This past week, Gore had 14 carries for 76 yards and a touchdown, while Yeldon had eight carries for 30 yards.

If Singletary can play this weekend, Gore would likely still get the start, while Yeldon would either be inactive or hanging around in case Singletary aggravates his hamstring injury. Singletary has the most upside of any of the running backs in this group, but Week 4 is likely not the week you’ll see it. New England has the top rush defense in the league, and there’s a good chance Buffalo will be forced to the air to remain in this game. Barring the bye week leaving you short-handed, none are a good start.
