Matt Breida, RB (NYG)

Largest role of season

Breida carried nine times for 26 yards and caught both targets for 29 yards and a TD reception in Thursday's 31-6 win over New Orleans.

Breida had only seen 12 carries all season prior to Thursday, but the Bills wanted to shake up a listless running attack and benched Zack Moss for the contest, giving Breida the opportunity he'd been waiting for. It looked like he was going to be the main ballcarrier for the night, but teammate Devin Singletary got hot, and the two ended up splitting work in an easy win. Singletary finished with 16 touches and 62 percent of the snaps, while Breida had 11 touches and 38 percent. We'll see if the Bills keep Moss on the bench for the team's Week 12 tilt against the rival Patriots, but our guess is this will be a fluid situation the rest of the way.
