    Getty Zack Moss celebrates a rushing touchdown in a preseason game against the Green Bay Packers. After weeks of struggling in the running game, the Buffalo Bills are making some big changes for their Thanksgiving game. NFL Network host Tom Pelissero reported that the Bills were benching running back Zack Moss for Thursday’s game against the New Orleans Saints. Moss’s carries will likely be going to Matt Breida, the speedy running back who had been a healthy scratch for much of the season but has seen his share of snaps steadily increasing in the last three weeks. “Bills RB Zack Moss is expected to be a healthy scratch tonight against the Saints, per source,” he reported. “Moss leads the team with 4 rushing TDs despite dwindling snaps in recent weeks. But with the offense scuffling, they’ll shake it up and go with Devin Singletary and Matt Breida.” The Bills are making some changes beyond the running game, activating rookie wide receiver Marquez Stevenson off IR.

    Getty Matt Breida breaks a tackle during a game against the Indianapolis Colts. The Buffalo Bills were left with plenty of questions after a 41-15 loss to the Indianapolis Colts, but some insiders believe the game may have also revealed the answer to the team’s rushing woes. The Bills had been relying on the tandem of Devin Singletary and Zack Moss to carry the rushing load this season, but in the last two weeks have gotten a boost from the speedier Matt Breida. Some are now calling on the Bills to move Breida into the starting spot in the hope that he can give the suddenly struggling offense a boost. The latest Bills news straight to your inbox!

Breida Leads Backfield Against ColtsWhile the Bills had split carries between Moss and Singletary almost equally this season, it was the third-string Breida carried the load in the loss to the Colts.

    Getty Matt Breida celebrates after a touchdown against the New York Jets. The Buffalo Bills have been looking for answers for the running game after struggling for close to a month, and may have found it on Sunday against the New York Jets. Speedster Matt Breida, who had been inactive for the majority of the season as the Bills went with the tandem of Devin Singletary and Zack Moss, was dressed and had his best game of the season against the Jets. Breida found the endzone twice, adding a new wrinkle to the running game that the Bills had previously lacked before. The latest Bills news straight to your inbox!

The Buffalo Bills were looking to bounce back in Week 10 following an embarrassing loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, and during their very first drive against the New York Jets on Sunday, they did something they weren’t able to do last week: get into the endzone.

    Getty Mitchell Trubisky of the Buffalo Bills will face his former team this weekend. Mitch Trubisky is making his return to the Windy City just five months after he signed a one-year deal with the Buffalo Bills. The former second overall pick for the Chicago Bears was bound to return to sooner or later, and he’s getting it out of the way early on, when Buffalo heads to Soldier Field on August 21 for a preseason game that ultimately doesn’t matter. But it kinda does. Sure, it’s just the preseason, but considering the Bears currently have Trubisky’s long-term replacement on the roster in this year’s first-round pick Justin Fields, and his short-term replacement starting against the Bills in Andy Dalton, there’s more than a little pride on the line for Trubisky — and for those replacing him. One of Trubisky’s new Bills teammates in particular is looking forward to the quarterback’s return to Chicago, and he explained why. ALL the latest Bears news straight to your inbox!

    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills agreed to sign running back Matt Breida to a one-year contract on Thursday. Breida has four years of NFL experience and was a free agent after spending last season with the Miami Dolphins. He was limited to 254 yards rushing and 96 receiving in 12 games, including one start, on a Dolphins team that had difficulty establishing a running game. In Buffalo, Breida joins a backfield that sputtered behind the tandem of Devin Singletary and rookie Zack Moss last season. Though the Bills relied mostly on their Josh Allen-led passing attack, the running game still had difficulty finding its rhythm by failing to top 100 yards 10 times including the playoffs. Breida spent his first three seasons in San Francisco, where he averaged 5 yards per carry. He combined for 1,902 yards rushing and six touchdowns, plus 561 yards receiving and four TDs. ___ More AP NFL coverage: https://apnews.com/hub/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press.

    Joe Mixon hasn’t played since Week 6 while nursing a foot injury that has seemingly had him listed as “day-to-day” for weeks; Christian McCaffrey is set to miss yet another game in what is looking like a lost season for him; and Matt Breida looks ready to return from a hamstring injury and factor into the Dolphins’ backfield. Knowing the latest updates on these injuries is key to fleshing out our Week 11 fantasy RB rankings and making tough start ’em, sit ’em decisions.

WEEK 11 STANDARD RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker Is Joe Mixon playing this week?  Mixon (foot) hasn’t played since Week 6 despite most expecting him back in Week 10 after the Bengals’ bye. Instead, he missed practice all week and kicked off his Week 11 prep by logging a DNP on Wednesday. That’s not a good sign and indicates that his pesky foot injury is still bothering him....
    There are many injured RBs across the NFL right now. The rankings are always thin at this point in the season, but this year seems especially brutal. Luckily, it looks like Christian McCaffrey may have a chance to return in Week 9 while Chris Carson, Matt Breida, Kenyan Drake, and Mark Ingram all fall into the more “questionable” category. These injuries will have a massive impact on our Week 9 RB rankings and key start ’em, sit ’em for fantasy owners jockeying for playoff spots.

WEEK 9 STANDARD RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker Is Christian McCaffrey playing Week 9?

Now, it seems like he’s trending toward playing in Week 9 against the Chiefs. According to Steve Reed of The Associated Press, Panthers coach Matt Rhule is “very hopeful” McCaffrey will return from IR after he practiced with the...
    Week 9 of the fantasy football season has arrived and yet another four-team bye week will create some tough lineup decisions for fantasy owners who are desperate to win and stay in the playoff race. The Eagles, Rams, Browns, and Bengals are all idle, so owners won’t have the likes of Joe Burrow, Carson Wentz, Kareem Hunt, Darrell Henderson, Jarvis Landry, Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, Dallas Goedert, Austin Hooper, and more at their disposal. With injuries taking their toll and depth being tested across fantasy leagues (especially at the RB position), owners are going to have to peruse our Week 9 fantasy rankings to find some worthwhile sleepers, like new Dolphins starting RB Matt Breida and the recently reinstated Antonio Brown.  Fantasy owners will surely question whether Brown is worth starting in his first game in over a year, but with Chris Godwin (finger) questionable and Tom Brady having a rapport with Brown, he’s certainly worth considering. So are other solid receivers like Jerry Jeudy (@ Falcons) and Darnell Mooney (@ Titans) as they get more involved in the passing offenses...
    Matt Breida (Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty Images) Matt Breida has a real opportunity to be fantasy relevant again this season. On April 25, the Miami Dolphins continued their busy offseason by acquiring running back Matt Breida from the San Francisco 49ers for a fifth-round pick. That was the second acquisition of a running back by the Dolphins in the offseason, as they had also signed Jordan Howard to a contract. Now, from the outside looking in, Howard is the far more praised running back but Breida is the cheaper (and better) option for fantasy football this season. That puts him right in the middle of fantasy football sleepers for 2020. Breida has shown continued signs of explosiveness and dominance in his first three seasons in the NFL. His only problem has been crowded backfields and having to fight through injury. It was the 2018 season that saw Breida enjoy the most success as he ran for 814 yards with 5.3 yards per attempt. That trend continued in 2019 when he averaged 5.1 yards per attempt but had far fewer opportunities...
    Naya Rivera Update: Ventura County Sheriff Shifts From Search and Rescue to Recovery Operation Starbucks will require customers wear facial coverings as coronavirus cases surge Dolphins have not discussed extension for RB Matt Breida The Dolphins acquired running back Matt Breida from the 49ers in exchange for the No. 153 overall pick in this year’s draft, and Breida is scheduled for unrestricted free agency at the end of the 2020 season. However, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald writes that the team has not discussed an extension with Breida. © Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports Matt Breida was traded from the 49ers to the Dolphins. Of course, extensions are hard to come by right now in light of the uncertainty created by COVID-19, and even under better circumstances, the Dolphins may not be too keen on a multi-year commitment. Breida, a 2017 undrafted free agent, has yet to total more than 153 carries in a season, has battled injuries throughout the early part of his career and will enter the 2020 campaign in a timeshare with free agent acquisition Jordan...
