How to handle Devin Singletary and Zack Moss in 2022 playoff fantasy football leagues and DFS

Heading into the first round of the NFL playoffs, what should fantasy managers expect from Devin Singletary and Zack Moss?

The Buffalo Bills aren’t typically a source of a lot of running back production, but they are one of the better teams entering the NFL playoffs. If you’re playing in a playoff fantasy football competition or DFS, should you consider either Devin Singletary or Zack Moss?

Devin Singletary is the clear lead back

Early in the season, Buffalo’s backfield situation was a bit of a split. In recent weeks, however, Singletary has taken over the running back workload for the Bills, and he handled 57 rushing attempts over the last three weeks. Over those three games, he averaged 78.3 rushing yards per outing and scored 4 touchdowns.

In the Bills’ regular-season finale, Singletary once again put up numbers, taking 19 carries for 88 yards and a TD while adding 2 receptions for 24 yards and another score. He’s been on fire lately.

Suddenly, Buffalo’s offense has a run game to go along with their defense and the quarterback play of Josh Allen. Over the last three weeks, the Bills have posted the second-most rushing attempts per game in the NFL.

Zack Moss has essentially disappeared

Moss had a three-week stretch early in the year where he was given double-digit carries in every game. But he hasn’t seen more than 8 attempts in any game since Week 5. Moss hasn’t even earned a spot on the active roster in a few games this year — he was a healthy scratch in three of the last six weeks.

Last week, Moss played on only 21% of the offensive snaps. His role is dwindling, as the Bills have been featuring Singletary with some Matt Breida sprinkled in. Moss simply isn’t viable in fantasy in any format right now.

How to approach the Bills running backs in playoff and DFS contests

Singletary is one of my favorite value running backs to target in playoff leagues and DFS slates. He has earned an expanded role in Buffalo’s offense and is playing on a team that has a good chance to make a deep run. Singletary is seeing RB1 usage lately, and he’s been scoring a ton of touchdowns. As the weather continues to get colder, he should continue to handle a heavy role.

Not only that, but the Bills didn’t earn a first-round bye. That privilege belongs to the Tennessee Titans in the AFC. Singletary could be a solid running back contributor on a team that has a chance to play in multiple games.
