Is it possible a starting running back in the NFL on a running team doesn't have a TD this year? The goal line back for the Buffalo Bills last season was Josh Allen. 2nd round pick Zack Moss is a perfect fit for goal line duties with a stout 5’9” 223-pound frame who rarely goes down after first contact. When all you need is 1-3 yards pure power is often the right formula. Singletary will be a yardage back this season and there's a good chance he totals 1,500 rushing and receiving, unfortunately the TD's over/under is around 3.5
Daniel Jones had a tremendous rookie season as the New York Giants quarterback. Yes, of course his stats were middle of the pack level but that's still saying a lot for a first year starter. One glaring weakness was the 12 interceptions and even more irritating in the fantasy world, the 11 lost fumbles. Jones is making it a priority to cure his fumblitis and we're pretty confident he will be successful.
Dalvin Cook is making a big bet by threatening to holdout if a new contract agreement isn't reached before the season starts. Cook is coming into his fourth year following a monster year in 2019. I don't think there is any doubt that Cook is one of the best running backs in the league, but he's only had one good year so far. If Cook and the Vikings can't reach an agreement and he misses early games or worst case scenario the entire season, then Alexander Mattison is a great pickup. Think James Conner in 2018 after Le'Veon Bell skipped the season and the first four games for Austin Ekeler in 2019.
The running back by committee battle in Los Angeles has a new twist. Malcolm Brown, Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson Jr expect to compete for the starting role this preseason. Henderson Jr sits on top of the depth chart in mid-June but did little in his rookie campaign to warrant the top spot. He is also still recovering from ankle surgery earlier in the year. Brown has had five years to secure the spot and hasn't done so. Cam Akers is the best bet to win this battle and will likely dominate carries by mid-season.
