Devin Singletary has over 100 rushing yards

Since Week 11 of his rookie season, Devin Singletary has not broken the 100-yard rushing mark in a game. In fact, that game against the Denver Broncos is the only game Singletary has had over 100 rushing yards.

However, in this game against the Atlanta Falcons, he should have the opportunity to end that streak and will have over 100 rushing yards.

There are two reasons that I believe this is going to happen. The first is that the Bills have made Singletary their featured running back and has averaged 12.6 rushing attempts per game over the past three games.

This average is boosted from a career-high 22 rushing attempts in Week 15 against the Panthers but I believe this week Singletary could be close to another 20 rushing attempts. If the Bills get up in the first half, as I stated in my previous prediction, they could look to Singletary to chew up the clock in the second half.

This increased opportunity against a defense that is allowing over 120 rushing yards per game should give Singletary a great chance to break 100 rushing yards in Week 17.
