The NFL season is halfway over for some teams, but for fantasy football enthusiasts, twilight is growing nigh on the 2023 campaign. Customarily the start for fantasy football playoffs is Week 15.
As is the case in the NFL, teams are constantly tinkering with what works. For the Houston Texans, it appears that Devin Singletary as lead running back produces results. The former Buffalo Bills rusher generated 30 carries for 150 yards and a touchdown in what was Houston’s best rushing output of the season.
According to Gordon McGuinness from Pro Football Focus, Singletary deserves consideration for fantasy rosters entering the final stretch.
Devin Singletary is only rostered in 51% of Yahoo leagues and is coming off a game where he put up 150 yards in relief of the injured Dameon Pierce. Even when Pierce returns, Singletary can still expect to see roughly 10 carries per game if they split time, and there is the potential that his big game against the Cincinnati Bengals will cause a Texans team that had struggled to get the running game going to turn to him more down the stretch.
Prior to Week 8 when Pierce injured his ankle, there were only two games Singletary went over 10 touches, let alone carries.
The Texans may be more likely to go with Singletary earlier in games if Pierce is still struggling to find daylight. Pierce has to know his job is at stake given Singletary’s performance against the Bengals, which could motivate the former 2022 fourth-rounder to keep Singletary on the bench.
