Buffalo Bills
2021 Fantasy Outlook
A third-round pick in 2020, Moss spent most of the season locked in a timeshare that didn't allow him or Devin Singletary to shine most weeks. Singletary amassed more raw production, but Moss might be the Bills' better bet going forward to emerge as a reliable backfield lead. A physical runner who not only seems to enjoy contact with defenders but has the balance and nimbleness to stay on his feet after a collision, Moss recorded 13 broken tackles on only 112 carries last year, the fourth-best rate in the league. (Singletary managed only nine on 156 totes). Moss also didn't see many targets as Josh Allen preferred gunning the ball downfield, but his college resume and strong performance when he was utilized as a receiver suggest he has significant room for growth in that area if given the chance. Despite those strengths, Moss remains a wild card for the upcoming campaign. Any back who has to share red-zone and goal-line carries with Allen, much less with another RB as well, is going to have trouble scoring TDs, and Singletary, a third-round selection in 2019, doesn't seem to be going anywhere. It might take an injury to clear up the logjam for touches in the Buffalo backfield. Read Past Outlooks

Leads backfield, scores as receiver

September 26, 2021
Moss rushed 13 times for 60 yards and secured all three targets for 31 yards and a touchdown in the Bills' 43-21 win over Washington on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
The passing attack will garner a lot of the attention considering Josh Allen's four touchdowns through the air, but Moss' performance was encouraging from both a real-life and fantasy perspective. The second-year back outpaced Devin Singletary in carries by two and also scored his first receiving touchdown after coming in with only two receptions over the first two games, with both having come in Week 2. Whether the ground attack's division of labor Sunday holds true in a Week 4 matchup against the Texans remains to be seen, but it's certainly something for both Moss and Singletary fantasy managers to monitor.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
A 2018 knee injury discouraged Moss from leaving for the NFL early, and he seemed to make the right decision after an impressive final season at Utah convinced the Bills to nab him in the third round of this year's draft. A physical back at 5-9, 223, with three-down potential, Moss doesn't just invite contact; he seeks it out so he can plow through more defenders on his way to the end zone. His outstanding balance allows him to stay on his feet through big collisions and gives him the potential for big gains after contact. That running style, and his college knee injury, do invite concerns about durability, but joining a backfield with Devin Singletary already in place should help keep Moss fresh and ready to hammer through another linebacker. Given their respective abilities, the duo could be interchangeable for the Bills rather than cleanly splitting early down and passing-down roles - a situation that would bode well for Moss' efficiency as he works behind a solid offensive line.
