Bills HC Sean McDermott said Friday that RB Zack Moss was inactive for the opener because he struggled with injuries in training camp. Moss missed a little less than a week with a hamstring issue but was otherwise fine as far as we know. McDermott added that Moss "looked good" in practice this week. It sounds like there's a chance he's active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. But we still wouldn't be using him in fantasy lineups.

Bills RB Zack Moss is a surprise inactive for today's game against the Dolphins. We'll see whether he was injured in pregame warmups or is a healthy scratch. Either way, it'll be Devin Singletary and Matt Breida in Buffalo's backfield today. Singletary now looks like a solid Week 1 fantasy play.

Update: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says Moss is not injured.

Bills RB Devin Singletary got the start in Saturday's preseason finale and played all 12 snaps on the 1st possession. RB Zack Moss ended up leading the backfield with 16 snaps with QB Josh Allen, though. Singletary played 15 and RB Matt Breida 7. Breida, interestingly, played 6 of those 7 snaps in the slot or split out wide. This is looking like at least a 2-man, and potentially a 3-man committee heading into Week 1.

Per Bills HC Sean McDermott, RB Zack Moss won’t practice on Wednesday due to a hamstring injury suffered in Tuesday’s practice. The team will approach Moss’ injury “one day at a time.” The missed time will give more first-time reps to Devin Singletary and Matt Breida. We’ll let you know when Moss returns to the practice field.

Bills RB Zack Moss has worn a red, non-contact jersey throughout offseason practices, per team beat writer Matt Parrino. It’s a reminder that he’s still working back from January ankle surgery. If he’s a full-go for training camp, Moss will be in a good spot to lead this backfield in touches ahead of Devin Singletary and Matt Breida.

Update: Per Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic, Bills HC Sean McDermott said the team is "looking forward to getting Moss back for training camp for drill work." McDermott added that Moss has done a "phenomenal job" with rehab.

The Bills have agreed to a 1-year deal with RB Matt Breida. The 26-year-old collected just 59 carries and 10 targets for the Dolphins last year, after Miami traded a 5th-round pick to get him from the 49ers. This signing provides nice insurance -- an improvement over T.J. Yeldon -- but doesn't necessarily preclude Buffalo from drafting a RB early. If the Bills head toward the season with Breida, Zack Moss and Devin Singletary still the most prominent names in the backfield, then Breida could present intriguing upside late in fantasy football drafts.

Dolphins RB Salvon Ahmed (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Patriots. He joins DeAndre Washington, Matt Breida and Patrick Laird in the backfield. Ahmed operated as Miami's lead back in Weeks 10 and 11 and might return to that role today. But it’s unclear exactly how touches will be distributed here.

Dolphins RB Salvon Ahmed (shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Patriots. He got in 3 limited practices this week and seems on track to return. Ahmed operated as Miami's lead back in Weeks 10 and 11, totaling 33 carries and 7 targets. He might just be the best bet for touches in the backfield this weekend -- ahead of DeAndre Washington, Matt Breida and Patrick Laird -- but you're best off just avoiding this backfield in what figures to be a low-scoring affair vs. New England.

Dolphins RB Matt Breida has been activated from the COVID list and is set to return for this weekend's game vs. the Patriots. Breida joins DeAndre Washington and Patrick Laird as Miami's healthy backs -- although the Fins haven't been interested in giving Breida a significant role all season.

Dolphins RBs Salvon Ahmed (shoulder) and Matt Breida (COVID) are out for Sunday’s game against the Chiefs. That leaves DeAndre Washington and Patrick Laird to back up Myles Gaskin, who was back in a feature role last week.

Dolphins RB Matt Breida has been placed on the COVID list. He's out for at least this weekend's game vs. the Bengals. Miami will also likely be without RBs Salvon Ahmed and DeAndre Washington, who are both listed as doubtful. We'll see whether RB Myles Gaskin is activated from IR to return for this one. If not, Patrick Laird will be left as Miami's lead back.

Dolphins RBs Salvon Ahmed (shoulder) and DeAndre Washington (hamstring) are listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bengals. RB Matt Breida, meanwhile, missed Friday's practice with an illness that HC Brian Flores declined to say was COVID related or not. Flores also said that the team is still deciding whether to bring back RB Myles Gaskin (knee) for this weekend's game. If Gaskin is activated, he'd likely step back in as Miami's clear lead back and be in the RB2 mix. If not, Miami could be left with only RB Patrick Laird. We have to imagine they'd go pass-heavy in that case.

Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin (knee) won't be activated from IR and will miss Sunday's game against the Jets, ESPN's Cameron Wolfe reports. With RB Salvon Ahmed also out, Miami is down to RBs Matt Breida, DeAndre Washington and Patrick Laird. We're guessing that Breida leads the way in touches tomorrow -- but it's just a guess. You should try to avoid the situation in fantasy lineups.

Dolphins RB Salvon Ahmed (shoulder) is out for Sunday's game against the Jets. RB Myles Gaskin (knee) returned to practice this week, but HC Brian Flores wouldn't say Friday whether Gaskin will be able to play this weekend. We'll look for updates on his status. Matt Breida, Patrick Laird and DeAndre Washington are Miami's healthy RBs right now.

Dolphins RB Salvon Ahmed has missed the first 2 practices of the week with a shoulder injury. We'll see what he's able to do tomorrow, but his status for Sunday's game against the Jets is in doubt. RB Myles Gaskin (knee) is eligible to return this week, although it's unclear if he's ready. Matt Breida, Patrick Laird and DeAndre Washington are Miami's healthy RBs right now.

Dolphins RB Matt Breida (hamstring) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final Week 11 injury report. He’s not a fantasy option vs. the Broncos on Sunday, but his return adds a bit of risk to RB Salvon Ahmed’s projected workload.

Dolphins RB Matt Breida (hamstring) put in a full practice on Wednesday. He's on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Broncos. We're still expecting Salvon Ahmed to operate as Miami's lead back in that one, but Breida's return adds some risk to Ahmed's profile.

Dolphins RB Matt Breida (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Chargers. RB Jordan Howard is a healthy scratch. That leaves the backfield to DeAndre Washington, Salvon Ahmed and Patrick Laird.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport tweets that Dolphins RB Matt Breida (hamstring) "may be a week away from going." It sounds like we should expect him to miss today's game against the Chargers. That'd leave Miami's backfield to DeAndre Washington, Salvon Ahmed, Jordan Howard and Patrick Laird. It's still a situation to avoid in fantasy.
