2022 RTSports Outlook

Singletary had his best season to date, emerging as the go-to back for the Bills and posting huge numbers down the stretch. Singletary had at least 14 fantasy points five straight games to end the year. He also scored touchdown four straight. He showed he could handle the load and produce well for the Bills. Singletary had 1,098 total yards and eight touchdowns. He made a lot of plays after contact, averaging 2.3 yards per carry after contact. He should be the starter to open the year for the Bills. Singletary is a top speed back, getting to the next level in a hurry. He can make plays as a runner and receiver, making him a three-down threat. Singletary is not a great runner on the inside, though, but has improved in that area the last few seasons.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: You can't ignore his finish to last year in this explosive offense. He has some risks because he could lose out on carries around the goal line and the Bills are a pass-first team, but things are still trending up for Singletary. He should be considered a solid No. 2 fantasy back, likely posting the best numbers of his career this season. He can get around 1,300 total yards, double-digit scores and 50 receptions.

RotoBaller's Outlook

It doesn't make much sense to have doubts about Buffalo Bills running backDevin Singletary, even with the ongoing talk about the team's backfield this offseason. Yes, Zack Moss hasn't been bad, but he hasn't been even remotely close to Singletary's production levels. That's why the 24-year-old racked up almost twice the PPR points Moss produced last year, and the former also bested his backfield partner on a per-game basis putting up 11.3 FPPG to Moss' 8.0 score. Singletary did it all last year in 17 games: only 188 carries were enough for him to reach 870 yards on the ground to go with 7 TDs over the 717 snaps he played. That rushing yards figure was the best among RBs with 188 or fewer carries, and only Singletary,Leonard Fournette,James Robinson, andBoston Scottscored 7+ touchdowns on such volume. Singletary's ability to break tackles after finishing the year with 40 such events was more impressive, though. He, of course, was the only rusher with more than 30 broken tackles on fewer than 200 carries and the fifth-best at total broken tackles without any statistical restriction. Talk about efficiency. Singletary's 4.7 carries per broken tackle ranked second, only topped by Javonte William's 4.6 mark, and the Bills rusher broke a tackle on 21%+ of his total carries, the third-best mark among rushers with 100+ rushing attempts. He is a staple in Buffalo's backfield, and that shouldn't change going forward, with the only problem for his upside being the presence of QBJosh Allenand his rushing prowess. The Bills also drafted running back James Cook in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft. Cook should see most of his work on passing downs as he was considered one of the best pass-catching backs in the draft this year. Additionally, Singletary should have a vital role in Buffalo's high-power offense and is as solid a draft pick as they come at the position.

Player Notes
Jul 2 12:00am ET

Even though the Buffalo Bills drafted rookie running back James Cook as a pass-catching threat out of the backfield, the coaching staff remains firmly behind Devin Singletary as an important piece of the backfield puzzle. Singletary ended last year as the team's every-down starter, yielding minimal snaps to Zack Moss as the backup. The Bills aren't going to cut Singletary out of the offense just because of Cook, and for now, The Athletic's Joe Buscaglia expects Singletary to remain the lead back by playing time, but Cook will have a role. Cook will likely mix in on obvious passing situations and when the team feels comfortable enough to use two-RB sets and split him out wide. Singletary's fantasy ceiling is definitely lowered with Cook now in the fold, but he could still end up as a top-30 fantasy back.
