One stat that Devin Singletary will have to reduce this upcoming season is fumbles. The second-year running back did have four fumbles last year but the good news was that he only lost one. However, if Singletary’s workload is going to increase this upcoming season, he has to prove he can do a better job of holding onto the football.
Last year, there was only three running backs who had more fumbles than Singletary and that was Chris Carson with six fumbles, and Derrick Henry and Carlos Hyde tied with five. However, the three running backs ahead of Singletary had at least 100 more touches and Singletary had the highest fumble percentage with 2.2%, which the other backs were under 2%.
The expectation is that Devin Singletary is going to see a much bigger workload this upcoming season and the quickest way to lose touches is if a player demonstrates they can’t hold on to the ball. If Devin Singletary is able to limit the fumbles, he should have an increase workload and gives himself a great chance of making his first Pro Bowl in 2020.
