ESPN and NFL Network report that Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (knee, ankle) will NOT play vs. the Ravens today. Mostert has been battling various injuries throughout the season, but this will be the first game that he misses. His absence will leave Miami's backfield to De'Von Achane, Jeff Wilson, and Chris Brooks. Achane is likely to get more work with Mostert out, although we doubt Miami makes him a workhorse. Wilson figures to mix in plenty and could be a RB3 or flex option for fantasy teams.

Dolphins RB Jeff Wilson (ribs, finger) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Panthers. He put in three limited practices this week, so he shouldn't be far from making his 2023 debut. Wilson's absence this weekend will leave RBs Salvon Ahmed and Chris Brooks behind Raheem Mostert. Mostert should control the backfield work in a dream matchup against Carolina's 29th-ranked RB defense.

Dolphins RB De'Von Achane (shoulder) practiced without a non-contact jersey on Monday, according to The Miami Herald's Daniel Oyefusi. That puts the rookie on track to play in this weekend's opener vs. the Chargers. Achane got zero first-team snaps in the preseason and can't be trusted in Week 1 fantasy lineups. But it wouldn't be surprising if he ends up getting significant playing time on Sunday with RB Jeff Wilson out. Miami only has Achane, Salvon Ahmed, and Chris Brooks behind lead back Raheem Mostert.

The Dolphins surprisingly put RB Jeff Wilson Jr. on IR Thursday. That means he'll miss at least the first four games. We had seen no indication of a significant injury to Wilson. He missed Wednesday's practice with an undisclosed issue but had otherwise only missed scant early-August time with a minor left-leg injury. This designation leaves Raheem Mostert and Chris Brooks as the only healthy RBs on the roster, and Mostert likely the clear backfield leader for Week 1 against the Chargers. De'Von Achane (shoulder) and Salvon Ahmed (concussion) worked on the side Wednesday, which could mean they have a chance to be ready for Week 1. We'll look for more on Wilson's situation and outlook. He remains stashable, though he's probably more of an early-season waiver option in most leagues now than a draft target.
