24-Year-Old Running BackRB
Buffalo Bills
2021 Fantasy Outlook
The Bills' decision to use a second consecutive third-round pick on a running back (Zack Moss) didn't bode well for Singletary's prospects last summer, and indeed the Florida Atlantic product ran for fewer yards than he did as a rookie despite playing four more games. Singletary did make up some of the difference with more production in the passing game, but it was still a disappointing showing after his big finish to 2019. He has the vision to find soft spots in a defense and the burst to punch through them, but a lack of straight-line speed or size prevents him from being a true big-play threat. Moss, a more physical runner, can also handle snaps on all three downs, giving the Bills more flexibility but also making it tougher for either RB to take advantage of specific matchups. Josh Allen also takes goal-line touches away from both backs, and offseason addition Matt Breida could further flatten the carry distribution. Offensive coordinator Brian Daboll should still find some kind of role for Singletary, but it isn't likely to yield much fantasy value unless Moss misses more time. Read Past Outlooks

Singletary rushed 10 times for 26 yards and a touchdown while adding four catches for 25 yards on five targets in Sunday's 42-36 overtime loss to the Chiefs.
ANALYSIS
SIngletary capped Buffalo's opening drive with his ninth scrimmage touchdown in the last six games. After Singletary's one-yard rushing score, the game turned into a passing battle between Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes, with Mahomes coming out on top in thrilling fashion. Singletary grabbed hold of the lead role in Buffalo's backfield down the stretch, and the 2019 third-round pick out of FAU will likely pick up where he left off as the team's top running back next season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
A third-round pick in 2019, Singletary looked good early but then missed three games with a hamstring injury, effectively setting him back to square one in the Buffalo offense. He seized the starting job in the second half, however, averaging 92.4 total yards over his final eight games before piling up 134 yards in a wild-card loss to the Texans. While the Florida Atlantic product isn't an impressive physical specimen at 5-7, 203, and doesn't wow anyone with his speed in the open field (4.66 40), he has excellent vision and burst, traits that offensive coordinator Brian Daboll exploited for maximum effectiveness last season, as no back in the league saw eight-man fronts less often than Singletary. He also got better as a receiver as the season wore on, though there's room for further improvement. Buffalo boosted its passing game by trading for Stefon Diggs in the offseason, later adding third-round pick Zack Moss to potentially keep Singletary in a committee, rather than anointing him the Bills' new bell cow. Given Singletary's smaller stature and useful but not exactly elite skill set, that might be the best decision for the team from a football perspective, but it could put a ceiling on his workload and fantasy upside.
Singletary is a hard back to pin down, both for defenders and for analysts. He's slightly undersized, and his 4.66 time in the 40-yard dash at the combine ranked as one of the weekend's bigger disappointments, but he did have 54 rushing TDs for Florida Atlantic the last two seasons. Singletary shows tremendous vision and balance, allowing him to exploit small creases and emerge from pileups, and his burst and low center of gravity eventually could make him a short-yardage weapon. With LeSean McCoy being cut in late August, Singletary seems positioned as the heir apparent, even if Frank Gore and T.J. Yeldon also stand between the rookie and touches in the short term.
