Singletary rushed 13 times for 71 yards and caught four of five targets for 50 yards in Sunday's 35-32 win over the Rams.
Singletary carried the rushing load with Zack Moss (toe) out, as T.J. Yeldon (three carries for 18 yards) was the only other running back to touch the ball for the Bills. Singletary failed to get into the end zone on a direct snap from the one-yard line in the first quarter and ended up watching quarterback Josh Allen account for five touchdowns from inside the five-yard line, but Singletary's 121 scrimmage yards were eight shy of his combined total from Weeks 1 and 2. While his lack of usage in the red zone puts a cap on Singletary's value, he should be a reliable source of yardage against the Raiders in Week 4.
With Zack Moss (toe) out this week, Singletary should see added carries Sunday against the Rams.
Through the Bills' first two games, Singletary logged 19 rushing attempts for 86 yards while adding seven catches on 10 targets for 43 yards. In that span, Moss carried 17 times for 48 yards and caught three of his four targets for 16 yards and a TD. With Moss unavailable this weekend, Singletary should see the bulk of Buffalo's backfield work versus Los Angeles, with T.J. Yeldon a candidate to be active for the first time this season and see some change-of-pace action. Though the Rams are 2-0, they've allowed 257 rushing yards to date, resulting in solid fantasy results for Ezekiel Elliott in Week 1 and Miles Sanders in Week 2.
Singletary rushed 10 times for 56 yards and brought in two of three targets for 20 yards in the Bills' 31-28 win over the Dolphins on Sunday.
While the Bills backfield situation continues to be a fantasy quagmire, Singletary at least slightly outpaced rookie Zack Moss in rushes during Sunday's contest and also saw two receiving touches to his teammate's none. Singletary also was the more efficient back with 5.6 yards per carry, though Moss's 4.6 figure wasn't disappointing by any stretch. The good news for both backs is that it appears it's them or bust when it comes to Buffalo's ground game, but whether Singletary can do enough to separate from his first-year competitor on a week-to-week basis remains to be seen. Singletary will look to build on Sunday's serviceable numbers against the Rams in a Week 3 home matchup.
Singletary rushed nine times for 30 yards and added five catches for 23 yards on seven targets in Sunday's 27-17 win over the Jets.
Singletary was bottled up by the Jets, but so was Zack Moss (nine carries for 11 yards). Moss made up for his lack of rushing production with a four-yard receiving touchdown, while quarterback Josh Allen scored the team's lone rushing touchdown and led in both carries (14) and rushing yards (57). Singletary still has time to carve out a larger role in the crowded Buffalo backfield (given Allen's propensity to run the ball), but the second-year back will need a better performance in Week 2 against the Dolphins.
It still isn't clear how the Bills' backfield workload will be split between Singletary and Zack Moss, according to Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic.
Singletary was an effective runner throughout his rookie season and showed development as a receiving threat late in the year, but he also fumbled four times and apparently wasn't consistent in pass protection. The 223-pound Moss is a better bet to handle short-yardage work, but Singletary still figures to be the nominal starter and quite possibly the lead runner. Reports of fumbling issues at camp were probably overblown, as it was only two instances through seven practices, and we haven't heard any evidence the problem continued. For what it's worth, Singletary had only five fumbles on 765 touches in his college career, and Moss had only six on 778 touches.
Singletary has fumbled twice through seven padded practices, Matthew Fairburn and Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.
We shouldn't jump to conclusions based on a small sample from practice, but this is at least worth making a note of once Singletary's recent history -- four fumbles last year -- is taken into account. On the other hand, he fumbled only five times on 765 touches at Florida Atlantic, with none of those coming in his final season. Even so, any struggles could encourage the Bills to give more work to third-round rookie Zack Moss, who has yet to fumble in practice and seems to be making a strong impression on the Buffalo beat reporters. It appears both Singletary and Moss could enter Week 1 against the Jets with significant roles.
Singletary had a tough practice Thursday, getting bottled up on runs between the tackles and even fumbling one time, Joe Buscaglia and Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic reports.
Meanwhile, rookie third-round pick Zack Moss thoroughly impressed, showing great vision and finishing explosive runs with his physicality. Moss has two inches and 20 pounds on the 5-foot-7, 203-pound Singletary, which could inhibit the latter from getting some early down work in 2020. In particular, though, Singletary's ball-control issues reared their head again. Last season, he was tied for second in the NFL with four fumbles, averaging one every 45 touches. With Moss swapping in for Frank Gore in the Bills backfield, Singletary may have a difficult path to average 15 touches per game, as he did as a 2019 third-rounder last season.
Singletary could be in for some competition for carries in 2020 after the Bills selected Utah's Zack Moss in the third round Friday.
For Singletary's sake, we suppose that's better than the team bringing in a top free agent such as Todd Gurley, but Moss was a top-five running back in several prospect rankings and he'll pose a serious threat for carries if he gets his career off to a good start. That said, Singletary did nothing but shine after passing Frank Gore on the depth chart last season, and with perhaps a shortened summer for Moss to get up to speed with his new team, Singletary should still head into the season as the No. 1 back. Moss, however, has enough of a pedigree to make this a 1A-1B setup along the same lines that many other teams in the league operate under.
Singletary rushed 13 times for 58 yards and caught six passes for a team-high 76 yards in Saturday's 22-19 overtime playoff loss to Houston.
Singletary was the Bills' top offensive weapon aside from quarterback Josh Allen in this one, finding plenty of room to operate on the ground and as a receiver against the Texans' porous defense. The third-round draft pick finished the regular season with 775 yards and two touchdowns, but most of his numbers came in the second half of the season, when he tallied 603 rushing yards over the final eight games as the team's lead back. Singletary's 5.1 yards per carry were tops amongst qualified running backs this season. The 21-year-old is in prime position for a true breakout in 2020, especially if veteran Frank Gore -- who cut into the rookie's touches significantly this year -- departs via free agency or decides to retire.
Singletary is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jets.
John Brown, Cole Beasley and Dawson Knox will also sit this one out, with the Bills locked into their No. 5 playoff seed.
Singletary rushed 15 times for 46 yards in the team's Week 16 loss to the Patriots. He also added one reception for two yards.
Despite Frank Gore not recording a touch for the first time this season, Singletary was limited as the Bills possessed the ball for just 21 minutes. Even when he did get touches, Singletary averaged only 3.1 yards per carry, with his longest gain going for 12 yards. Though Singletary has shown flashes as a receiver throughout his rookie campaign, he was lightly used through the air for the second consecutive week. He'll look to end the season on a stronger note as the Bills take on the Jets in Week 17, though he may not receive a full allotment of playing time with the Bills' playoff positioning locked in.
Singletary rushed 21 times for 87 yards and caught both of his targets for two yards in Sunday's 17-10 win over Pittsburgh.
Singletary led the Bills' backfield in carries by a decent margin for consecutive weeks, firmly cementing his starting role after playing under the shadow of veteran Frank Gore for the first half of the season. The rookie has displayed big-play ability all year, falling below a 4.0 yards per carry mark just once (Week 7 against Miami). Singletary will face a tough matchup against the Patriots' stout run defense next week, so his ceiling may be a bit lower than in recent weeks. It's worth noting the rookie fumbled twice in the contest -- equaling his previous total for the entire season -- and lost one of them.
Singletary carried 17 times for 89 yards and caught six of eight targets for an additional 29 yards during Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Ravens.
Facing a tough Baltimore defense, Singletary averaged a respectable 5.2 yards per carry while breaking off a long gain of 38 yards. He also tied for the team lead in targets and set a new career high for receptions, though his mark of 4.8 yards per catch wasn't particularly impressive. Singletary has now topped 100 scrimmage yards in three consecutive games and will look to continue his recent success next Sunday against the Steelers.
Singletary carried the ball 14 times for 63 yards while catching three of four targets for 38 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 26-15 win over the Cowboys.
His TD came on a nifty trick play that saw wide receiver John Brown toss a strike to a wide-open Singletary, who trotted into the end zone for a 28-yard score. The rookie RB took awhile to earn the trust of the Bills' coaching staff, but over the last five games he's piled up 484 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns, decisively supplanting Frank Gore at the top of the depth chart.
Singletary ran for 106 yards on 21 carries and added an eight-yard catch during Sunday's 20-3 win over Denver.
The Broncos came into Sunday as one of the stingier run defenses in the league over the past month or so, but Singletary plugged away for his first career 100-yard rushing performance. The rookie has been magnificent moving the chains this season, averaging 5.9 yards per carry despite just five carries of over 20 yards and none of 25 or more yards this season. His role is continuing to increase, with at least 16 touches in three of his last four games, and he should be counted on Thursday against a Dallas defense that is ranked in the top 10 in the league against the pass but one that has been a little more generous against the run this season.
Singletary ran for 75 yards on 15 carries and added a four-yard catch during Sunday's 37-20 win over Miami. He fumbled twice, but both were recovered by the offense.
The rookie had a pair of big runs Sunday, including a 25-yard dash through the defense late in the first half to set up a touchdown. Singletary cut through Miami's front and turned on the jets before fumbling on a play that was recovered by his teammate. Sunday's fumbles were the first two of his career and so there shouldn't be too much concern as he he builds a stronger hold on the lead back job. Over the past four games, Singletary has 46 carries to Frank Gore's 36 and has done far more with them, averaging 5.0 yards per carry to Gore's 2.4. Next up is a visit from a Denver defense that has flummoxed top backs Nick Chubb and Dalvin Cook in recent weeks.
Singletary carried eight times for 42 yards and caught three passes for an additional eight yards during Sunday's 19-16 loss to the Browns.
Although Singletary gashed the Cleveland defense for 5.3 yards per carry, his team took an uncharacteristically pass-heavy approach, which limited his usage on the ground. He finished second on the team with seven targets, but he struggled to connect with Josh Allen on several occasions and finished with little to show for his efforts in that area. Singletary did significant damage on 23 touches in his previous outing and could rebound next Sunday in a favorable matchup with the Dolphins.
Singletary ran for 95 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries, while hauling in three of four targets for 45 receiving yards during Sunday's 24-9 win against the Redskins.
After amassing 127 rushing yards and a touchdown through Buffalo's first two games of the year, Singletary was beleaguered by a hamstring injury and deemed unavailable to play between Weeks 3 and 6. Since returning Week 7 against Miami, the rookie third-round draft choice has resumed his strong debut campaign, averaging an impressive 4.7 yards per carry over the past three weeks while adding seven receptions for 75 yards. What is most encouraging in regards to his fantasy outlook is the massive uptick in workload, as Singletary's 20 rush attempts Sunday nearly tripled his previous season high of seven carries. Upcoming next is a matchup against a Cleveland defense that entered Week 9 ranking as a bottom-10 unit with more than 110 rushing yards surrendered per game to opposing running backs.
Singletary rushed three times for 19 yards and caught four of six targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-13 loss to the Eagles.
Singletary's biggest play was a 28-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter. He thoroughly outplayed Frank Gore, but Gore still got nine carries to Singletary's three, turning that workload into 34 yards. It appears Singletary's touches will continue to be limited by Gore's presence, even though the rookie third-rounder out of Florida Atlantic is clearly the most talented running back in Buffalo.
Singletary rushed seven times for 26 yards in the Bills' 31-21 win over the Dolphins on Sunday.
Singletary was making his return from a three-game absence due to a hamstring injury, and with T.J. Yeldon inactive, the rookie saw a solid complementary workload behind starter Frank Gore. Singletary has seen his carries climb in each of the three games he's suited up for, and his dynamic skill set should progressively help him carve out additional playing time now that he's regained health. Singletary will look to begin making good on that promise in a Week 8 matchup against the Eagles.
