Raheem Mostert Signs New 2-Year Contract to Stay in Miami
3 months ago

The 31-year-old running back has agreed to a new deal that will keep him in a Dolphins uniform through the 2025 season.

On Friday afternoon, the Miami Dolphins and Pro Bowl running back Raheem Mostert agreed to terms on a new two-year contract worth up to $9 million. The nine-year veteran is coming off a career season in which he rushed for 1,012 yards and 18 touchdowns (which led the NFL), averaging a stellar 4.8 yards per carry. Mostert’s previous deal—which saw him earn a base salary of $2.35 million—was set to expire after the 2024 season.

 

Although Mostert will be 32 by the time the NFL season kicks off in September, one year ago, he was the first running back at the age of 30+ to record a 1,000-yard rushing season since Adrian Peterson did it in 2018. Mostert has been particularly productive in Miami, where he has recorded his two most prolific rushing seasons and also notched his first and only career Pro Bowl selection. Mostert has been able to stay relatively healthy, too, which had been a problem for him during his years with the San Francisco 49ers.

 

With Miami looking to advance past the Wild Card round—where they have lost each of the past two seasons—Mostert figures to play a huge role in a rushing attack that has excelled since his arrival in South Beach. Paired with second-year man De’Von Achane, the Dolphins’ backfield figures to feature one of the league’s most explosive tandems once again in 2024.

 

Coming off a season in which he led the league in rushing touchdowns and finished within the top five in fantasy scoring, Mostert’s extension only further cements his status as a solid, plug-and-play fantasy RB1. Although it might be difficult to expect the same level of touchdown production in 2024—mainly due to health and the rise of Achane—Miami’s high-octane attack figures to bode well for Mostert’s fantasy outlook.

Raheem Mostert Ruled Out for Week 17
6 months ago

The Miami Dolphins have Raheem Mostert inactive for Week 17.

After suffering an ankle and knee injury last week, Raheem Mostert has hardly practiced this week and will miss Week 17. Mostert has been a touchdown machine this season and fantasy managers will be scrambling this morning for a replacement.

The main benefactor of Mostert’s absence will be De’Von Achane. Since returning from his stint on IR, Achane has been mediocre for fantasy managers with two out of five games with double-digit fantasy points. The rookie does have a tough match-up versus the Ravens this week, but is a must start now with Mostert possibly sitting this one out. In deeper leagues you may want to add Jeff Wilson Jr. since he will have a larger role this week, and be a possible flex play.

De'Von Achane Expected to be Inactive for Week 1
10 months ago

Rookie De’Von Achane is expected to miss the Dolphins’ Week 1 contest versus the Chargers.

The highly anticipated debut of De’Von Achane will be put on ice as it appears that he will miss the Week 1 contest against the Los Angeles Chargers. Achane was drafted in the third round out of  Texas A&M but unfortunately has been dealing with a shoulder injury since injuring it during the Dolphins’ preseason game versus the Texans. The rookie was looking like an excellent sleeper for Week 1, especially after Jeff Wilson landed on the IR early this week, but now managers have to wait to see if he can be ready for Week 2.

With Achane inactive, look for Raheem Mostert to handle the majority of the touches and be a possible RB2 for fantasy managers for Week 1. Mostert should be inserted into line-ups as either an RB2 or Flex play this week. In deeper PPR leagues Salvon Ahmed could be picked up as a really deep Flex option. In dynasty leagues, also consider adding Chris Brooks since he will be active today and could surprise many fantasy managers and garner some touches as well.

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.

De'Von Achane Day-to-Day with Undisclosed Injury
11 months ago

Miami Dolphins rookie RB is day-to-day with an undisclosed injury.

By all accounts Dolphins’ rookie running back De’Von Achane has been electrifying throughout the opening days of training camp. He has been explosive as a rusher and picking up yards in chunks as a receiver.

 

A slight damper was put on the rookie today, as he limped off the field early in practice and was removed for the duration of the day. He would later return to work on the sidelines in a rehab assignment. The team has not given a specific update on his injury, only saying that he walked off gingerly and they won’t speculate on the exact injury, but that it wasn’t overly concerning. Mike McDaniel went on to say that they “had no concern for long-term injury and that he shouldn’t be out long”
