Devin Singletary was on the verge of looking like a bust over the first few weeks of the year, as he appeared to be in a true timeshare with rookie Zack Moss. While the rest of the Buffalo Bills' offense was reaching new heights, Singletary was racking up just 64.5 yards from scrimmage on 13.0 touches per game during that two game span.

A toe injury knocked Moss out for the two subsequent weeks, though, and he has responded with tremendous showings in back-to-back weeks. He'll be an extremely valuable fantasy asset as long as Moss remains on the sidelines.

Devin Singletary Fantasy Outlook

Singletary is turning 21.0 opportunities (15.5 carries plus 5.5 targets) into 98.5 yards from scrimmage per game during that two-week span. He played 89 percent of Buffalo's snaps in each of those two games.

You have to think Singletary has earned himself a slightly bigger role than what we saw over the first two weeks. Accounting for Moss' return, we have Singletary as the RB25 in our Week 5 rankings, but he'd rise if Moss is unable to suit up.

However, fantasy managers need to proceed with caution here. Given what's going on with the Tennessee Titans right now, there's definitely a chance this game gets pushed back.

Zack Moss Injury Update

Assuming this game happens, all signs point to Moss being out there. He was a game-time decision in Week 4 and another full week of rest should have his injured toe back to full strength.

Moss played 45 percent of the snaps in Week 1 and 46 percent in Week 2. Singletary will likely still serve as this team's primary back between the 20's, but Moss does have value in the red zone. Moss has the same number of red zone carries (4) as Singletary despite playing in half the games.

Moss is best viewed as a handcuff, or TD-dependent FLEX option going forward.
