Devin Singletary’s breakout season didn’t come until the second half of the year once the Buffalo Bills made him the featured running back. The coaching staff had been operating a running back by committee for most of the season but wasn’t having much success.
Then in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Bucs, Singletary would get a majority of the work and from that point forward would stay in that role.
He would be on the field for 68% or more of the offensive snaps every game, including 100% of the offensive snaps against the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Divisional Round. In six of the final seven games of the season, Singletary would have 75 or more yards from scrimmage and would finish the year with nine total touchdowns.
The Buffalo Bills will likely add to the running back position this offseason but the focus may have shifted from finding a featured running back to one that can complement Devin Singletary, who should enter 2022 in the same role he finished this past season.
