Bills RB James Cook carried only twice (for 4 yards) and caught 2 of 5 targets for 14 more in Thursday's win over the Lions. He did tie for 3rd on the team in targets, but even that put him way behind leaders Stefon Diggs (15) and Isaiah McKenzie (10). RB Devin Singletary rushed 14 times for 72 yards and caught his lone target for 8 yards.
The normally pass-favoring Bills leaned on the running game in Sunday's win over the Browns. RB Devin Singletary led the way, with 86 yards and the team's only rushing score on 18 carries. Rookie James Cook added 86 yards on 11 carries. Nyheim Hines barely factored in again, losing 8 yards on his lone carry and watching his lone target fall incomplete. Thanksgiving Day brings a Detroit defense that entered Sunday just 27th in Football Outsiders' run-defense DVOA.
Bills RB Devin Singletary chipped in 2 goal line TDs in Sunday s loss to Minnesota. Singletary actually saw 4 total goal line carries including 3 in the 1st quarter alone. It was a deviation from what we ve seen this year, but perhaps Josh Allen s injured elbow played a role. Singletary lost a close fumble and added only 1 catch (2 targets). Oddly, Buffalo also activated Duke Johnson, who mixed in for 2 carries behind James Cook (5 attempts). Nyheim Hines at least remained a total non-factor on offense with 1 touch. Singletary draws a favorable matchup with Cleveland in Week 11.
