Week 2 Finish: RB54
For the second straight week, Devin Singletary would get the start but against the Tennessee Titans would get a majority of the snaps. This game seemed like it would be a perfect opportunity for Singletary to have a big game against a defense that got picked apart on the ground in Week 1.
The fourth-year running back got off to a fast start with a 16-yard run on his first carry of the game but didn’t do much else after that. He finished the game with 19 yards on six rushing attempts along with two receptions for one yard.
The Miami Dolphins have done a good job against running backs in the first two games of the season and this is a game where it is unlikely for Singletary to get back on track.
Projected Week 3 Finish: Outside the Top 24 RBs
Week 2 Finish: RB68
In Week 1, it was Zack Moss who split the work with Devin Singletary but against the Titans, he saw his playing time cut significantly. Similar to Singletary, he had one big run, that picked up 17 yards but on the other two carries he had he picked up zero yards.
At this point, Zack Moss is probably not a player to roster but if he is on your team he can’t be started with any kind of confidence. The best chance for points would likely be if he finds the end zone in a goal-line situation but this is tough to project.
Projected Week 3 Finish: Outside of the Top 50 RBs
Week 2 Finish: RB46
Of the three running backs on the Buffalo Bills, James Cook actually scored the most fantasy points after picking up 53 rushing yards on 11 carries. However, almost all of the carries came in the fourth quarter when the Buffalo Bills were looking to run out the clock.
The reason that the performance is noteworthy is that he looked the best of the three running backs in Week 2. He may be a player to consider adding to your roster this week if he is on the waiver wire and there is a bench spot open because he could become a bigger part of this offense in the near future.
Projected Week 3 Finish: Between RB36 and RB50
