What Week 1 tells us about Bills running backs in fantasy football

Devin Singletary and Zack Moss had similar exposure in Week 1. We go over what their fantasy football potential for Week 2 here.

The Buffalo Bills utilized a running back-by-committee approach in their 27-17 victory against the New York Jets on Thursday. Devin Singletary and Zack Moss both got plenty of touches and left their marks on the game, but it’s hard to tell whether one has an edge in fantasy football. We’ll go over our thoughts on the two after their 2020 debuts here.

Fantasy football analysis: Bills RBs Devin Singletary and Zack Moss

Singletary and Moss both recorded nine carries against the Jets on Sunday. Singletary was much more productive on the ground with 30 rushing yards while Moss tallied only 11. Singletary also had more receptions (5) and receiving yards (23) than Moss, but Moss managed to convert one of his three catches for a touchdown. Both backs appear to have limited upside at this point, as Josh Allen attempted 46 passes and led the Bills in rushing attempts (14). Allen’s legs should continue to be a major part of Buffalo’s offense.

Week 2 recommendation

Moss appears to have the goal line work between the two, but Allen often takes that for himself. Neither Singletary or Moss are RB1 or RB2 material, but could be used as flex plays. They won’t return much value unless they score while they’re splitting carries.
