22-Year-Old Running BackRB

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Singletary is a hard back to pin down, both for defenders and for analysts. He's slightly undersized, and his 4.66 time in the 40-yard dash at the combine ranked as one of the weekend's bigger disappointments, but he did have 54 rushing TDs for Florida Atlantic the last two seasons. Singletary shows tremendous vision and balance, allowing him to exploit small creases and emerge from pileups, and his burst and low center of gravity eventually could make him a short-yardage weapon. With LeSean McCoy being cut in late August, Singletary seems positioned as the heir apparent, even if Frank Gore and T.J. Yeldon also stand between the rookie and touches in the short term.

Goes over 100 total yards
RBBuffalo Bills
January 4, 2020
Singletary rushed 13 times for 58 yards and caught six passes for a team-high 76 yards in Saturday's 22-19 overtime playoff loss to Houston.
ANALYSIS
Singletary was the Bills' top offensive weapon aside from quarterback Josh Allen in this one, finding plenty of room to operate on the ground and as a receiver against the Texans' porous defense. The third-round draft pick finished the regular season with 775 yards and two touchdowns, but most of his numbers came in the second half of the season, when he tallied 603 rushing yards over the final eight games as the team's lead back. Singletary's 5.1 yards per carry were tops amongst qualified running backs this season. The 21-year-old is in prime position for a true breakout in 2020, especially if veteran Frank Gore -- who cut into the rookie's touches significantly this year -- departs via free agency or decides to retire.
