Devin Singletary

There is no question that the hype around rookie running back Zack Moss is at an all-time high after it has built over training camp. It has gotten to the point where it wouldn’t be surprising that Moss surpasses Devin Singletary on the depth chart.

However, this is far from being a foregone conclusion and since Singletary does have the experience, he is going to have a chance to make his case for why he should remain the featured running back.

Last year, Singletary finished with nearly 1,000 yards from scrimmage in only 12 games and did have four total touchdowns. In the final eight games of the regular season, Singletary had over 75 rushing yards in five of those games. He also finished with over 100 total yards in the Bills playoff loss to the Houston Texans.

The addition of Zack Moss now gives the Buffalo Bills two legitimate running backs and this is why the hype has dropped a bit for Singletary entering Year 2. He will need to have a strong game against the New York Jets or the rumblings for Zack Moss will only grow louder.
