Fantasy Football: Predicting the 2020 season for Zack Moss

Zack Moss won't enter his rookie season as the lead back for the Bills, but does that dampen his fantasy outlook?

By both volume and percentage of plays, the Buffalo Bills had one of the run-heaviest offenses in the NFL last year. A running quarterback like Josh Allen helps that, but the departure of Frank Gore leaves behind 166 carries from last year. Enter Zack Moss, who the Bills took in the third round of April’s draft.

Moss topped 1,000 yards on the ground with double-digit touchdowns three times in his career at Utah, with two 200-plus carries seasons and a third (179 carries in 2018) if he had played more than nine games. He was also a productive pass catcher, averaging 13.9 yards per catch in 2019 with three receiving scores over the last two seasons

Pro Football Focus credited Moss with one of the best broken tackles per carry rates they’ve seen over the last six seasons. Other PFF metrics put Moss is a nice light too.

The Bills turned their backfield over to Devin Singletary late last season. But is there room for Moss to be a fantasy factor as a rookie?
