Player Outlook
Singletary was expected to play second fiddle for the Texans in 2023, but instead, he took over as the lead back in Week 9. Singletary averaged 19 total touches per game and just under 90 total yards per game from Week 9 on. Despite not scoring many touchdowns, Singletary finished the season averaging the 21st-most Fantasy points per game. He joins a Giants backfield that lost Saquon Barkley and only rosters a pair of fifth-round draft picks behind him as depth. Singletary's projected volume makes him an excellent bet to return RB2 value and he's shaping up as one of the best value picks in the middle rounds of your Fantasy drafts.

  • Giants' Devin Singletary: Joining New York's backfield

    Singletary is slated to sign a three-year deal with the Giants, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Per Schefter, Singletary's looming three-year pact with New York is a $16.5 million agreement that could be worth up to $19.5 million. The 26-year-old, who had 216 carries for 898 yards and four TDs to go along with 30 catches for 193 yards in 17 regular-season games with the Texans in 2023, steps into a situation where he'll be called upon to help fill in for the departure of Saquon Barkley (Eagles). It's a role that should yield enough touches for Singletary -- who profiles as the team's lead back at this stage -- to merit fantasy lineup consideration in 2024.

  • Texans' Devin Singletary: Effective as pass catcher

    Singletary rushed the ball nine times for 22 yards in Saturday's 34-10 loss to the Ravens. He added five receptions on six targets for 48 yards. Game script and a tough matchup combined to mute Singletary's production on the ground. However, he finished third on the team in targets and was effective as a pass catcher, with two of his five receptions going for double-digit gains. With the performance, Singletary recorded at least three receptions in five of his final six games. He's set to hit free agency this offseason and helped his market by tallying 1,091 yards from scrimmage with four total touchdowns across 17 games with the Texans.

  • Texans' Devin Singletary: Tallies garbage-time score

    Singletary rushed the ball 13 times for 66 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 45-14 win over the Browns. He added three receptions on three targets for four yards. The Texans relied on C.J. Stroud for their scoring in the first half, as the rookie quarterback had three touchdowns. That, combined with a tough matchup against the Browns' run defense limited Singletary's production for much of the game, even though he out-touched Dameon Pierce 16-3. The former managed to salvage his performance with a 19-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter to tack on Houston's final score of the day. Singletary will continue to lead the team's backfield in the divisional round, though the offense is likely to run through Stroud once again.

  • Texans' Devin Singletary: Scores vital touchdown

    Singletary rushed the ball 24 times for 63 yards in Saturday's 23-19 win over the Colts. He added one reception on one target for two yards. Singletary was the only Texans running back to record a carry in the game. He was highly inefficient with the opportunity, as he averaged only 2.6 yards per rush and his longest gain went for only seven yards. Nevertheless, he scored the game-winning touchdown with just over six minutes remaining on a three-yard scamper into the end zone. Singletary will enter the postseason as Houston's clear lead back and should get a heavy workload regardless of the team's wild-card round matchup.

  • Texans' Devin Singletary: Sleeper RBs

    Singletary had another quality outing in Week 17 against Tennessee with 16 carries for 80 yards and three catches for 6 yards on three targets, and he's now scored at least 11.6 PPR points in six of his past eight games. He should be considered a low-end No. 2 running back in Week 18 against the Colts, who are No. 3 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs this season. A running back has scored at least 11.8 PPR points against Indianapolis in seven games in a row, with 10 running backs hitting that mark over that span. The Colts have only allowed five total touchdowns during that time, but seven running backs have gone over 100 total yards in those seven games.

  • Texans' Devin Singletary: Start Him (Lineup Decision)

    In his past five games, Singletary has averaged a steady 4.8 yards per rush while seeing his role in the passing game blossom over his past three (at least three grabs in each including last week with C.J. Stroud back under center). If there's a concern it's that Singletary isn't consistently getting a ton of playing time -- he's playing about 67% of the snaps when the Texans aren't blowing someone out (or getting blown out) and has started losing third downs to Dare Ogunbowale. Indianapolis' run defense over its past four weeks has allowed 4.2 yards per rush but have been excellent at limiting big plays (just nine runs out of 102 went 10-plus yards). They've gotten beat up by running backs in the passing game in those four games -- 8.5 targets per game, 10.1 yards per catch (second-highest) and 11.5 YAC/reception (the highest) allowed -- but the Texans have rarely utilized their running backs in the passing game until recently (20.2% target rate in the past six weeks). It's a leap of faith to count on Singletary keeping up with the catch volume we've seen lately, but the potential damage he could do that way on top of what hopefully is 15-plus touches keeps him in line as an RB2. I'd start him over Najee Harris, D'Andre Swift, Khalil Herbert and Austin Ekeler.

  • Texans' Devin Singletary: Sleepers (Start/Sit)

    Singletary had another quality outing in Week 17 against Tennessee with 16 carries for 80 yards and three catches for 6 yards on three targets, and he's now scored at least 11.6 PPR points in six of his past eight games. He should be considered a low-end No. 2 running back in Week 18 against the Colts, who are No. 3 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs this season.

  • Texans' Devin Singletary: Totals 86 yards

    Singletary rushed the ball 16 times for 80 yards in Sunday's 26-3 win over the Titans. He added three catches on three targets for six yards. Singletary's volume bounced back relative to his Week 16 performance, though he was once again affected by game script. He saw only half of the Texans' 14 rushing attempts in the final two quarters with the team in control of the game, which limited his final stat line. While Singletary will maintain a lead in touches over Dameon Pierce, he has now been held under 100 total yards in five of his last six games.

  • Texans' Devin Singletary: Sleeper RBs

    Singletary struggled in Week 16 against Cleveland with nine carries for 44 yards and three catches for 19 yards on three targets, but I'm expecting a better performance from him in the rematch with Tennessee. He faced the Titans in Week 15 and had 26 carries for 121 yards and four catches for 49 yards on five targets. With C.J. Stroud (concussion) back from a two-game absence, the Texans offense should perform at a higher level, and Singletary should be considered a quality flex option in all leagues.

  • Texans' Devin Singletary: Limited workload in Week 16 loss

    Singletary carried the ball nine times for 44 yards and caught all three of his targets for 19 yards in Sunday's 36-22 loss to the Browns. The running back was effective on the ground once again, with his longest gain going for 17 yards, but Singletary's workload dwindled as the game got away from the Texans. Since his breakout performance in Week 10, Singletary has amassed 689 scrimmage yards in seven games with three rushing TDs and a 4.8 yards per carry average. He should be more involved in Week 17 against the Titans.

  • Texans' Devin Singletary: Tallies 170 total yards

    Singletary rushed the ball 26 times for 121 yards in Sunday's 19-16 win over the Titans. He added four receptions on five targets for 49 yards. Singletary dominated work out of the Texans backfield, as Dameon Pierce saw only one total touch. Singletary took advantage of the absence of Jeffery Simmons (knee) along the typically stout Tennessee defensive line, ripping off three runs for double-digit yards. His biggest gain of the day came on a 41-yard reception in overtime, which set up the game-winning field goal. Singletary now has over 100 yards from scrimmage in three of his last six games -- two of which came with Pierce sidelined -- and he has established himself as the clear lead back in the Houston backfield heading into a Week 16 matchup against the Browns.

  • Texans' Devin Singletary: RBs to Sit

    Singletary was back in the lead role for Houston in Week 14 at the Jets ahead of Dameon Pierce, and Singletary performed well with 12.5 PPR points. He had 13 carries for 65 yards and a touchdown but no catches on three targets. We're waiting to find out if C.J. Stroud (concussion) will play in Week 15 at the Titans, and if Stroud is out then I don't want to trust any Texans. Even with Stroud, Singletary could still find it hard to run against Tennessee, which has been tough on running backs at home this year.

  • Texans' Devin Singletary: Scores team's only points in loss

    Singletary rushed 13 times for 65 yards and a touchdown while failing to catch any of his three targets in Sunday's 30-6 loss to the Jets. Singletary was the only member of Houston's offense that enjoyed a modicum of success, as C.J. Stroud threw for only 91 yards before exiting in the fourth quarter to be evaluated for a concussion, while Dameon Pierce had just four carries for nine yards. After rushing for 64 yards in the first half, Singletary was fittingly the player that got the Texans on the board, scoring a one-yard rushing touchdown on the final play of the third quarter. Singletary seems to be nudging ahead of Pierce in Houston's backfield, but the entire offense would have a far less rosy outlook if Stroud fails to clear concussion protocol before the team's Week 15 game against the Titans.

  • Texans' Devin Singletary: Sit Him (Lineup Decisions)

    The Texans rotated their running backs by series last week, a change from the week prior when Singletary dominated playing time. But they also started using Dare Ogunbowale on third downs again, especially on drives Pierce started. I wonder if they'll use Ogunbowale even more in passing situations after Singletary whiffed on multiple pass blocks last week. Anyway, it was happenstance that Pierce saw all three short-yardage snaps (and a goal-line touchdown), but there's not much doubt that the more consistent runner is Singletary. If I had to pick between the two, I'd go with Singletary, but both runners shouldn't be counted on for more than 10 touches each. That's too bad: The Jets have allowed at least 17 PPR points to a running back in six of their past nine games.

  • Texans' Devin Singletary: Role slips in victory

    Singletary rushed the ball eight times for 36 yards in Sunday's 22-17 win over the Broncos. He added one reception on one target for four yards. Singletary entered Sunday having seen double-digit touches in six straight games. However, that streak ended as he fell behind Dameon Pierce in terms of workload Sunday, with Pierce drawing 15 touches to Singletary's nine. The Texans held a comfortable lead for much of this matchup, which led to a game script that fell more into Pierce's style. In games that Houston falls behind, Singletary may see his role increase again, but his volume appears to be unreliable for the time being.

  • Texans' Devin Singletary: Start Him (Lineup Decisions)

    Singletary disappointed because he didn't get many carries last week, but that's uncharacteristic of the Texans offense. Some of that was made up for with receptions, giving him weak yardage totals without a touchdown. Rest assured, Singletary is still clearly Houston's lead back -- he played 81% of their snaps and dominated third downs and snaps inside the 5, even though it appeared Pierce rotated drives with him starting with the third one. The matchup is pretty good as Denver's run defense is the only element that hasn't improved much this season. While it's true that the Broncos have given up just one rushing touchdown in their past six games, it's also true they've let up 5.4 yards per carry in those same six games. Bank on the Texans giving Singletary more work on the ground to pace their offense. I'd start him over Jerome Ford, Javonte Williams and Joe Mixon.

  • Texans' Devin Singletary: RBs to Start

    Dameon Pierce returned from his three-game absence with an ankle injury in Week 12 against Jacksonville, but he played just 18 percent of the snaps. Singletary was still the lead running back, and he scored at least 13.2 PPR points for the third game in a row. I love that he had six catches for 54 yards on seven targets against the Jaguars, and I hope he continues to get work in the passing game moving forward. For Week 13, Singletary takes on a Broncos defense that allows the most Fantasy points to opposing running backs. Four running backs in the past three games have scored at least 12.0 PPR points, and Singletary has top-20 upside in all leagues this week.

  • Texans' Devin Singletary: Splits with Pierce in Week 12 loss

    Singletary rushed six times for 18 yards while catching six of seven targets for 54 yards in Sunday's 24-21 loss to the Jaguars. After a three-week run as Houston's lead back, Singletary split carries with Dameon Pierce (ankle) in Pierce's first action since Week 8. Neither running back found much rushing success, as Pierce finished with just 14 yards on five rushing attempts. Singletary was far more involved as a pass catcher out of the backfield, setting season highs in targets, catches and receiving yards while Pierce had just one reception. With a Week 13 home game against Denver's generous run defense up next, both members of Houston's backfield timeshare will be looking to bounce back on the ground.

  • Texans' Devin Singletary: Rejoined in backfield by Pierce

    Texans offensive coordinator Bobby Slowik suggested earlier in the week that Singletary will likely "share the load" Sunday against the Jaguars with Dameon Pierce (ankle), who is active after missing Houston's last three games, Jonathan M. Alexander of the Houston Chronicle reports. Pierce served as Houston's starting running back for the first seven games of the season but was one of the NFL's least-efficient runners, averaging a paltry 3.0 yards on 109 carries. While Pierce has been out the last three games with a high-ankle sprain, Singletary has given life to Houston's ground attack, taking 65 carries for 288 yards (4.4 average) and two touchdowns while adding five catches for 17 yards. Though Pierce isn't expected to face any restrictions Sunday after practicing fully Wednesday through Friday, he could have to settle for the No. 2 role out of the backfield or work in a timeshare with Singletary. Even if that's the case, Singletary will likely lose out on some touches and snaps with Pierce back in the fold, making Singletary less appealing of a fantasy play than he had been in the past three weeks.

  • Texans' Devin Singletary: RBs to Start

    We'll see if Dameon Pierce (ankle) is able to play in Week 12 against the Jaguars, but I can't imagine the Texans taking Singletary off the field for any significant amount of time. He's on fire coming into this game with at least 19.8 PPR points in consecutive games against the Bengals and Cardinals with 52 carries for 262 yards and two touchdowns and three catches for 17 yards on four targets over that span. The Jaguars have allowed three running backs in their past five games to score at least 17.9 PPR points, and Singletary should be considered a No. 2 Fantasy running back in all leagues.
