Buffalo Bills Fantasy Football Preview: Is Zack Moss the RB1 in Buffalo?

It looks like the rookie could be moving up the depth chart

One of the bigger fantasy football story lines for the Buffalo Bills this year has been around the running back position. Now with Week 10 of the regular season here, owners of Devin Singletary and Zack Moss need to make some tough decisions with their lineups.

Everyone remembers the role that Singletary played in 2019, playing a part in leading the Bills to the playoffs with 969 total yards from scrimmage. Expectations were high for the FAU-product early in the 2020 offseason, especially as the Bills failed to sign a running back in free agency. That was until the NFL Draft weekend, when Buffalo used the 86th pick to select Zack Moss

While injuries kept Moss on the shelf from Weeks 3 through 5, the rookie appears to have taken the lead in Buffalo’s backfield. Moss out-snapped Singletary in Sunday’s victory over the Seattle Seahawks (38-31). He also had more touches (11), than Singletary did (5). The number of touches is nothing to write home about for other players, but the work around the goal line is significant. Moss has three rushing touchdowns over the past two weeks, solidifying himself as the preferred options in the red zone.

In leagues where I roster Moss I am placing him into my starting lineup, while Singletary will move to the bench for now. This timeshare is not ideal for fantasy owners, despite the fact that it continues to work for the Bills.
