What to do with Devin Singletary, Zack Moss in Week 17 of the fantasy football playoffs

We go over the fantasy football outlook of Devin Singletary, Zack Moss ahead of the Bills Week 17 matchup against the Dolphins.

Game status: Both running backs active, but the Bills have deactivated several healthy defensive players. Don’t expect a full game from either.

Game Day Update: There hasn’t been much talk about whether or not RBs Devin Singletary and Zack Moss will play in Week 17. The team elevated RB Antonio Williams to the active roster Saturday, which could be a sign that both backs have the potential to be pulled if the game goes in the right direction.

The last week of the regular season means it’s likely the last time you’ll have to try and figure out how to properly handle the Buffalo Bills’ two-headed running back committee in fantasy football. This week, the Bills are trying to lock down the second seed in the AFC playoff bracket, so both backs figure to get their usual workload. Here’s how to handle them in fantasy.

Fantasy Football analysis: Bills RBs Devin Singletary, Zack Moss

Last week Moss had 12 carries for 57 yards and a touchdown against the Patriots. Singletary had 10 carries for 36 yards. That’s pretty consistent with how the team divvies up their workload; Moss with a slight edge in touches. Rushing touchdowns for the two players are a little harder to come by because quarterback Josh Allen is the first choice for running it in at the goal line.

The last time these two teams met, back in Week 2, Singletary had the edge in touches. He got 10 carries for 56 yards and caught two passes for another 20. Moss had eight carries for 37 yards and no catches. Since then, things have flipped, so the best bet here is to expect similar production numbers with Moss having an edge. The Dolphins haven’t given up a rushing touchdown to opposing running backs in their last five games.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Moss is a decent option for a Flex or RB3 in fantasy. Singletary can probably be left out of your lineup.
