Devin Singletary

Last year, the Buffalo Bills committed to Devin Singletary as the featured running back and he finished the year playing almost all the offensive snaps. Even more than just being on the field more, he also saw a bump in his carries with double-digit carries in eight of the final nine games of the season, including the playoffs.

This shift helped the Buffalo Bills get a little more balance to their offense and forced defenses to respect the run game. They were no longer able to just drop seven or eight players into coverage and disrupt throwing lanes.

Singletary now returns and the backfield seems a little more crowded with Zack Moss, who looks primed to bounce back this year, and rookie James Cook. It will be interesting to see how Ken Dorsey approaches the workload between these three running backs and his commitment to the run game in general.

It may be tough with players like Aaron Donald and Bobby Wagner on the other side but if the team is able to keep Devin Singletary involved, it will really help the offense in this game.
