Areas to improve
With a stellar rookie season most would think there aren’t many areas Singletary could get better, but there are some aspects of the game that if the young running back improved his game would evolve greatly.
The second-year running back could afford to improve his receiving game, coming into the 2019 season Singletary did not have a ton of experience in college catching the ball. He only caught six passes in his junior year at Florida Atlantic and would need some development in the NFL to become a threat.
Singletary had 41 targets and 29 receptions in 2019 and his catch percentage was underwhelming for a running back at just 70.7 percent. Ranking second to last among running backs with over 20 receptions, only Tevin Coleman was worse at 70 percent. This is for sure an area Singletary would love to improve, he will be targeted a lot more in the passing game if he can increase his receiving efficiency.
Despite moments of weakness in the passing game, Singletary made some nice plays and this one against the Philadelphia Eagles shows how much of a danger he can be in the open field:
Fumbles weren’t a problem for most of the season, but the talented running back only fumbled in two games but fumbled twice in both games. It seemed as though once Singletary would fumble he would be more proficient to fumble again. Could just be a coincidence due to the small sample size, but he did rank third in the NFL in fumbles among running backs which in limited touches compared to the top runners in the league is a cause for some concern.
