MOSS

The biggest obstacle between Moss being an RB2 is Devin Singletary. I say RB2 and not RB1 because there will not be an RB1 in a Josh Allen-led offense unless they are a phenomenal pass catcher, which Moss is not. Rushing attempts will be limited and a 50/50 split would lead to very little value for either Moss or Singletary, but I believe it will not be close to a 50/50 split this season. Moss will be the top dog in the Bills offense. It’s a bold statement and one based entirely on projections, but taking a deeper look at the numbers shows several factors that point to this. For starters, Singletary has been surrounded by much more doubt since he’s been in Buffalo than Moss. One year after drafting Singletary in the third round, they grabbed Moss because the organization did not see Singletary as a 3-down back. Then, in the back half of the season, Moss was on the field for as many or more snaps than Singletary for 7 of the last 9 games. Finally, at the very least, you can count on his usage in the red zone as he outnumbered Singletary on attempts inside the 20-yard line, 10-yard line, and 5-yard line all while still missing three games in the first half of the season. I’ll take a shot on a guy who has the floor of a TD-dependent RB3, but the ceiling of a mid-tier RB2 in the 9th round.
