Zack Moss dealt with a toe injury that derailed some of his 2020 rookie season, but he heads into the fall with a lot of upside on this Buffalo Bills offense. The former third-round pick has chance to take over this backfield given starter Devin Singletary has yet to run away with the gig in his first two NFL seasons.

Moss is the perfect sleeper candidate heading into fantasy football drafts as his current average draft position is No. 37 amongst running backs in PPR leagues, according to FantasyPros. Grabbing a potential starter playing on one of the best offenses in football at that spot is hard to pass up.

During his rookie season, Moss was relied on by the Bills to pound the rock down near the end zone. In fact, he finished the season with more goal line carries (8) than his counterpart in Singletary (5). The 23-year-old also had 15 rush attempts inside the 10-yard line compared to just eight for Singletary. That gives him huge TD upside on the explosive Bills' offense.

Moss' workload increased as the year went on, as he saw 13 or more touches in three of his final four regular-season games. Overall, the former Utah standout finished the 2020 season with 576 yards from scrimmage on 126 touches to go along with 5 total touchdowns in 13 games played.

Reports suggest Moss is dominating in training camp, which is an experience he was unable to have last offseason due to the COVID-19 pandemic. His ability to juke out defenders and break tackles up the middle is turning heads on the sidelines.

It wouldn't be surprising to see Moss' ADP climb as Week 1 kickoff gets closer. The young ball-carrier has FLEX worthy consideration every single week and could creep into RB2 territory if he takes over as the workhorse alongside quarterback Josh Allen.

For now, Moss slides in as the RB29 in The Duel's 2021 fantasy football rankings.
