What to do with Devin Singletary, Zack Moss in Week 2 fantasy football

Rookie Zack Moss has taken a big bite out of Devin Singletary’s workload. Are either worth starting against the Dolphins in Week 2?

The Buffalo Bills backfield is currently in flux, as rookie Zack Moss saw a big chunk of work along with incumbent Devin Singletary against the Jets on Sunday. Singletary ended up with 59 percent of the snaps to Moss’ 45 percent, but both had similar workloads with nine carries each and four targets and three receptions for Moss and seven targets and four receptions for Singletary.

Singletary ended up with 53 yards to Moss’ 25, but Moss also had 10 red zone looks and four touches inside the five-yard line, which helped him to one receiving touchdown. That goal line usage is a pretty big equalizer in fantasy.

Fantasy Football analysis: Bills RBs Devin Singletary, Zack Moss

This week the Bills get an easier run defense to face in Miami, so their backs should have a bit more upside, but both will continue to hurt each other’s fantasy statistics. Last week the Dolphins gave up 4.58 yards per carry, 119 yards and one touchdown to the Patriots running backs while also allowing 75 yards and two touchdowns to Cam Newton on the ground.

It appears to be a full blown committee in Buffalo and when you add in Josh Allen’s rushing prowess and goal-line usage, it’s as if there are three running backs. Allen’s rushing knocks down Singletary’s and Moss’ workload, but they still had enough touches Week 1 to have fantasy value.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Singletary and Moss as flex plays.
