How to handle Zack Moss injury in Week 4 fantasy football

Buffalo’s running back is questionable this week.

Game status: Zack Moss has been declared INACTIVE and will not play in Week 4. Devin Singletary will have a sizable workload with his normal backup out with his toe injury.

Buffalo Bills running back Zach Moss is officially questionable ahead of this week’s road game against the Las Vegas Raiders. Moss has been dealing with a toe injury that he suffered last Wednesday, Sep. 23, in practice. It forced him to miss last week’s game.

Moss was able to practice this week. He returned to practice on Wednesday, and was out there with his team the next two days as well, albeit in a limited role. It’s a good sign that he was able to get in some work this week, but his status for Sunday’s game has yet to be determined.

Fantasy impact: Zack Moss injury

Moss has been splitting the workload out of the backfield with Devin Singletary, the latter had a slight edge in carries through the first two games, 19-17. Singletary does have an edge in the passing game, getting three to seven targets per week so far.

If Moss can’t play, that will mean even more work for Singletary in a very attractive matchup for running backs. Singletary is a slightly better fantasy play than Moss, when the later is healthy and on the field, but the work share situation does cut into their production levels. Still, the Raiders are one of the worst defenses in fantasy football when it comes to opposing running backs, and at just $5,900 in DraftKings leagues, Singletary is an attractive option for lineups this week.
