Raheem Mostert
Dolphins' RB Jeff Wilson Placed On IR
10 months ago

The Miami Dolphins placed running back Jeff Wilson Jr. on the injured reserve list.

Miami’s projected starting RB Jeff Wilson Jr. will begin the season on the IR, missing at least four weeks. In his most recent statement head coach Mike McDaniel described it as a “midsection injury compounded by some finger issues.” Wilson Jr. was productive for Miami in 2022, putting up back-to-back top-10 RB finishes immediately after being traded from San Francisco on his way to an (84/393/3; 12/94/1) finish.

The news sent immediate shockwaves throughout draft rooms and site ranks everywhere. Fantasy gamers presumed Wilson Jr. would begin the year with a prominent backfield role for a prolific offense, making him a very intriguing late-round pick. The severity of the injury is yet to be determined but the outlook is grim. When questioned when Wilson might suit up, McDaniel said “I wouldn’t be surprised if he would make a return this season. We will let his body tell us.” So it’s wheels up for Raheem Mostert and rookie De’von Achane, who we were told will be practicing before Week 1. Expect ADPs for the remaining healthy Dolphin RBs to rise as we approach kickoff.
