Bills Today | What Devin Singletary sees from Josh Allen


1. What Devin Singletary sees from Josh Allen

Second-year running back Devin Singletary has noticed several differences about Josh Allen this season. Many teammates agree that Allen has improved in a variety of ways since returning to One Bills Drive. Singletary thinks Allen looks smoother in his decision-making.

"He's letting it flow easier even when it comes to making his reads," Singletary said. "Even in the run game, the RPO game, just everything is so crisp. I feel like that's the biggest thing that I've seen from him. Just being on point with everything, being ready to lead and just being that general that I know he can be."

Singletary caught 29 passes from Allen last season for 194 receiving yards. The running back thinks he's ready to play a bigger part in that phase of the game come Week 1.

"I feel I'm better than I was last year with route running and catching the ball," Singletary shared. "I feel a lot better this year than I did last year. Just like I say for the team, there's no limits."

2. Tre'Davious White on matchup with WR Denzel Mims

The Jets drafted wide receiver Denzel Mims out of Baylor with their second round pick of the 2020 draft. Mims missed most of training camp with an injured hamstring, but is optimistic about playing in Week 1.

During his time at Baylor, Mims had two seasons with 1,000 receiving yards, scored 28 touchdowns and averaged 15.7 yards per reception. Mims is 6-3, 207 pounds, and cornerback Tre'Davious White explained it will be a tough stopping him on Sunday.

"They didn't draft him high for no reason," White said. "He has to have an extreme amount of talent. I had to go back to his Baylor film to watch. Big, strong, physical guy—he's going to high point the football. For shorter guys, it's going to be a tough day. Hopefully the pandemic played a part in the thing, so he wasn't able to get timing down with the quarterback. Hopefully that's the thing, but it's going to be a tough time. He's a big, strong, fast receiver, so I'm pretty much going to need some help too. It's not going to be a one-on-one matchup."

3. What Bills player could be a solid flex option in fantasy?

This year the Bills have plenty of studs to choose from in fantasy football. The returning skill players can potentially offer solid points, and some new Bills players might be sleepers this season. NFL Fantasy Analyst Michael Florio has running back Zack Moss as one of the latest risers.

Zack Moss, RB, Buffalo Bills

Despite Devin Singletary having a fine rookie campaign, the Bills went out and drafted Zack Moss in the third round. Since then, basically everything you've heard about the Bills' backs has been bad for Singletary. The Bills are talking Moss up to be this year's version of Frank Gore and that may not sound like much, but Gore did rack up 189 touches last season. He also was getting the valuable touches near the end zone. Gore had 17 touches inside the 10-yard line compared to just four for Singletary. If that role goes to Moss this season it will make him a solid flex option. If the Bills use him in the passing game and on early downs, splitting time like they have mentioned, his upside is much higher, making him an RB to target in round eight or nine.
