FBG says: Good matchup. If the past three weeks have been any indication, the Buffalo ground game has shifted into a full-blown three-headed attack. Quarterback Josh Allen continues to play a huge role, with six rushes or more in seven of the Bills' nine games. But behind him, Devin Singletary continues to stake out a lead-back claim over 36-year-old Frank Gore. Over the past 3 games, the rookie has taken on 67% of the team's snaps and out-carried Gore 31-25. Unsurprisingly, he's been more than twice as productive, averaging 5.0 yards per rush to Gore's 2.4. Singletary continues to impress with his blend of elusiveness and hidden power, not unlike 2018 rookie breakout Phillip Lindsay did in Denver. For his part, Gore looks burned out as a volume runner. He's produced just 61 yards over this 3-game span, and he hasn't found the end zone since Week 3. Slowly but surely, this is becoming a Singletary-Allen backfield, which was glimpsed in an efficient Week 9. Against the bottom-tier Redskins, Singletary took on 20 carries; he and Allen combined to rack up 107 yards and 2 touchdowns.
The Dolphins still field one of football's most beatable run defenses. Through 9 games, they've given up the league's ninth-most yards per rush and third-most per game. On the plus side, they are coming off a solid two-game stretch that's seen them keep Le'Veon Bell (66 yards) and Marlon Mack (74) in check. Still, this remains one of fantasy's most exploitable matchups, and the Buffalo ground game projects well here. In previous weeks, this unit allowed five 100-yard rushers and hasn't gotten appreciably better. There's not much talent in this unit, which is in full transition mode, although at least the breakout of middle linebacker Raekwon McMillan has been impressive. The rotation around him has not, and quick-footed runners are finding room all over this thin front seven.
