Slaton watched sidelines, never returned to field

TSN - [Full Article]

As expected, a Texans running back had a huge day against the Bills. Unfortunately for Steve Slaton owners, his name was Ryan Moats.

Moats, who took over in the backfield after a fumble by Slaton on his first carry of the game, rolled up 126 yards on 23 carries and scored three times in Houston's 31-10 victory against the Bills. Meanwhile, Slaton watched helplessly from the sideline and never returned to the field after losing his league-leading fifth fumble. He finished with two catches for 10 yards and 1 yard rushing.

It's unclear if this move will be permanent, but Slaton owners need to grab Moats immediately. But before you think Moats is a waiver-wire gem for everyone, remember that this breakout game came against the Bills' league-worst run defense. Plus, it's not guaranteed he'll be starting Week 9 against Indy. Pay close attention to this situation this week.
