Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (knee, ankle) got in a limited practice on Tuesday. It's a good sign after he missed five of six practices over the previous two weeks. Mostert is expected back for Saturday night's Wild Card game vs. the Chiefs, but it's still unclear how big a workload he'll be ready to handle.

Dolphins RB De’Von Achane tallied 10 carries for 56 rushing yards and a TD in Week 18 vs. the Bills. The rookie also caught one pass and added 5 yards as a pass-catcher in Sunday night’s contest. Though injuries to Achane’s shoulder, knee, and toe limited him to 11 games in 2023, the speedster was able to finish as the RB5 in PPR points per game (17.3) and lead the league with a gaudy 7.8 yards per carry (YPC). To put that number into context, consider that Achane’s 7.8 YPC ranks first among all RBs with at least 100 carries over the past 20 seasons combined. The next closest player in that span is former Chiefs great Jamaal Charles’ 6.4 YPC in 2010. Injury concerns aside, there’s no dismissing the game-breaking, big-play capability that Achane demonstrated with the Dolphins this year. He won’t turn 23 until October of 2024 and should be considered as one of the most valuable, albeit volatile, dynasty RB assets moving forward.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (knee, ankle) is inactive for tonight’s game vs. the Bills. He’s expected to be back for next week’s playoff opener. De’Von Achane should operate as Miami’s clear lead back tonight, with RB Jeff Wilson behind him.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (knee, ankle) is not expected to play vs. the Bills tonight, NFL Network reports. Mostert is expected to be ready for next week's playoff opener. But his absence tonight should mean another big workload for RB De'Von Achane, who handled 14 carries and five targets with Mostert out last week.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (knee, ankle) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Ravens. RBs De’Von Achane, Jeff Wilson, and Chris Brooks are active for Miami. Achane figures to get a touch boost with Mostert out, but we’re also expecting Wilson to be plenty involved. See the updated projections for the Dolphins backfield.

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 WR Jaylen Waddle (ankle) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Ravens. He was always unlikely to play in this one and could also miss next weekend's regular-season finale vs. the Bills with his high-ankle sprain. WR Cedrick Wilson is the likely Waddle replacement but is no more than a cheap flier for DFS tournaments. WR Tyreek Hill and RBs Raheem Mostert and De'Von Achane are candidates for more targets with Waddle out.

Dolphins RBs Raheem Mostert (knee, ankle) and De’Von Achane (toe) are off the final Week 16 injury report. Mostert was a full-go on Friday; Achane got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. We’re not expecting either guy to be impacted by their injuries vs. the Cowboys on Sunday.

Dolphins RB De’Von Achane (toe) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He played through this toe issue last week and should be ready for this weekend's showdown vs. the Cowboys.

Dolphins RB De’Von Achane (toe) missed practice on Wednesday. Achane was questionable with a toe injury ahead of Week 15, then played into the fourth quarter of a blowout win. We’ll see if he’s able to get on the field tomorrow in preparation for a marquee showdown with Dallas. For now, our Week 16 RB rankings find Achane in RB2 range.

Dolphins RB De'Von Achane (toe) is active for today’s game vs. the Jets. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, so it’s safe to assume that he’ll be playing at far less than 100% today. Miami could really use Achane with WR Tyreek Hill out, though. Consider the rookie a risk/reward RB2 play in fantasy lineups.

Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill (ankle) is INACTIVE for today’s game vs. the Jets. He tried to give it a go but evidently didn’t feel well enough in pregame warmups. Hill’s absence removes 30% of Miami’s targets, 32% of the catches, 41% of the receiving yards, and 48% of the receiving TDs. It’s obviously a huge loss for QB Tua Tagovailoa, who is not a must-start against this tough Jets defense. The Dolphins figure to lean more on their run game today, while WR Jaylen Waddle and potentially the RBs get a boost in target share.

Dolphins RB De'Von Achane (toe) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Jets. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. HC Mike McDaniel called Achane’s availability an “unknown” on Thursday, so the rookie is seemingly in legitimate danger of missing this one. We’ll get Miami’s inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

Dolphins RB De'Von Achane (toe) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice. HC Mike McDaniel called Achane's status for this weekend's game against the Jets an "unknown." We'll see if he practices tomorrow and how he's listed on the final injury report.

Dolphins RB De'Von Achane (toe) was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday. It's an estimated injury report because Miami didn't actually practice. Still, this is a new injury and one we don't have any other details on right now. We'll see if Achane is able to practice on Thursday.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert racked up 21 carries for 96 yards and two TDs in Monday night's loss to the Titans. He played 64% of Miami's offensive snaps and tripled up RB De'Von Achane in carries. Mostert has now carried 20+ times in three of his last four games. The other was the blowout win over the Commanders when he barely played in the second half. Miami gets tough pass defenses in the Jets, Cowboys, and Ravens the next three weeks. All three of those teams rank better in pass defense DVOA than rush defense DVOA. So we could see the Dolphins lean a bit more toward the run -- especially with WR Tyreek Hill banged up. Mostert needs the rushing volume (and TDs) because he's totaled just five targets over his last four games. That lowers his weekly floor. But the rushing volume has been strong enough to keep him in must-start territory.

The final numbers from Sunday's blowout win over the Commanders suggest Dolphins RB De'Von Achane took over the backfield in his second return from a knee injury. The rookie tallied a 17-73-2 rushing line, leading the team in carries, yards, and TDs. And he ranked third among Dolphins in receptions (3) and receiving yards (30). Raheem Mostert trailed at 11-43-1 rushing, catching his lone target for 8 yards. But usage looked very different before and after halftime. According to Pro Football Focus, Mostert played 19 of Miami's 29 offensive snaps in the first half, compared with Achane's 12. Mostert hit halftime with a 9-3 carry lead and 1 target to Achane's 2 -- and Miami leading 31-7. Mostert played just 4 more snaps after the break, compared with Achane's 23. The rookie scored both of his TDs in that span. Mostert's TD came in the first half. So what's the takeaway? Expect both RBs to remain plenty involved and carry weekly TD upside. The remaining four matchups in most fantasy schedules don't look good for RB scoring (10th-worst schedule in the league by our adjusted fantasy points allowed). But the slate looks even worse for passing points. So consider Mostert and Achane weekly starting options the rest of the way. Jeff Wilson Jr., meanwhile, garnered only 4 carries even in a blowout victory. He's safe to drop in most fantasy formats.

Dolphins RB De'Von Achane (knee) will play vs. the Commanders this weekend, HC Mike McDaniel said Friday. The rookie shapes up as a risk/reward Week 13 fantasy play. He returned from this knee injury two weeks ago but lasted just three snaps before aggravating the injury. Achane has remained limited in practice this week. That's the downside. The upside? How about 518 total yards and seven TDs in his last three healthy games. Achane's return is just a slight knock against RB Raheem Mostert but knocks RB Jeff Wilson out of RB3 or flex consideration.

Update: Achane was a full participant in Friday's practice and is not listed on the final injury report.
