Running Back Outlook Week 10

There’s officially been a changing of the guards in the Buffalo backfield. After weeks of superb play marred with limited usage, the Bills finally let Devin Singletary (RB17) roam free this past week. Singletary carried the rock 20 times for 95 rushing yards and a touchdown, while also hauling in three receptions for 45 yards. The former FAU running back has been one of the most efficient runners in all football this season, averaging an insane 9.5 yards per carry in four of his five games. Singletary will look to keep his superb play rollin’ this week against the dumpster fire known as the Cleveland Browns. Cleveland ranks in the bottom ten in terms of fantasy points allowed to running backs, and they are coming off a game where they allowed Phillip Lindsay to average an eye-popping 9.2 rushing yards per carry.

Week 9 marked the first true sign of life we’ve seen out of Melvin Gordon (RB14) since ending his holdout, finding the endzone twice in the Bolts upset victory over the Green Bay Packers. Gordon was the third-highest scoring player at his position for the week, and has now averaged 20.5 touches per game in two of his last three contests. Gordon faces off this week with an Oakland defense that has been stout against the run, not surrendering a rushing touchdown since Week 5. However, they have allowed four running backs to surpass double-digit fantasy points in the last three weeks.

Kareem Hunt (RB32) makes his, depending on who you ask, much-awaited return to the playing field this week. The hype-train is already rollin’ for the Hunt truthers out there, as Freddie Kitchens has come out and stated that Hunt will “definitely have a role” within the offense. I would still play it safe this week, as Nick Chubb is one of the most featured running backs in all of football. Plus, with players like Singletary emerging and Ronald Jones recently locking down a starting gig, there may be players out there with an easier route to touches.
