Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

The Dolphins and RB Jeff Wilson Jr. have agreed to a two-year contract reportedly worth up to $8.2 million. This move is in correspondence with another deal struck earlier on Tuesday keeping his teammate Raheem Mostert in town, effectively making this Dolphins backfield the same as it was in 2022. Upon Wilson Jr.'s arrival via trade in Week 9, he and Mostert produced well in tandem. The two concluded the season ranking as the RB35 and RB33 overall in PPR scoring respectively in that stretch. That said, Wilson Jr. has more financial upside in his contract. If we're to give an edge to one over the other, you could logically follow the money and go with Wilson Jr. as the favorite. There's still room for the Dolphins to add to this RB room via the NFL Draft, but Wilson Jr. is the best bet to produce flex-level fantasy output with RB2 upside in a given week.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (thumb) didn't practice all week and has been ruled out for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bills. This news swings the door wide open for RB Jeff Wilson Jr. to lead the backfield in this contest. The Bills' defense has been tough all season and ranks 3rd-best in Football Outsiders' run defense DVOA over the last 4 weeks. Even so, Wilson Jr. projects to have enough volume sans Mostert to be an effective fantasy option in playoff formats.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (thumb) missed practice for the 2nd-straight day on Thursday. Teammate RB Jeff Wilson Jr. (illness) upgraded to full practice. There's still one more day of practice left for Mostert to log some participation in advance of Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bills. Be sure to keep an eye out for updates tomorrow.

Dolphins RB Jeff Wilson Jr. (illness) was a limited practice participant on Wednesday. Fellow RB Raheem Mostert (thumb) did not practice. The health of the Dolphins' backfield will be of great interest ahead of Sunday's Wild Card contest vs. the Bills, particularly with QB Tua Tagovailoa already ruled out for this game. Check back tomorrow for more information regarding this duo of backs.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert suffered a broken thumb in Sunday's win over the Jets. He garnered 11 carries and 2 targets in that one before leaving in the 3rd quarter. The injury doesn't necessarily mean Mostert will miss the Wild Card game against the Bills, but it's tough to imagine him getting significant backfield work with 1 full hand. Mostert's likely absence boosts the upside of Jeff Wilson Jr. for this weekend. We're certainly not betting on Miami getting to Round 2, though.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert is questionable to return for Sunday's game vs. the Jets with a thumb injury. We'll update his status when we know more. Mostert's absence leaves Miami's backfield to Jeff Wilson.

Update: Mostert has been ruled out.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert caught a team-high 8 passes for 62 yards and a TD in Sunday's loss to the Patriots. Already down QB Tua Tagovailoa (concussion), Miami lost backup QB Teddy Bridgewater to a finger injury late in the 3rd quarter. QB Skylar Thompson targeted RBs with 11 of his 21 attempts after that, including 5 of Mostert's catches. We'll see who lines up behind center for the Dolphins in Week 18. RB Jeff Wilson Jr. led the rushing vs. New England, with 15 carries for just 45 yards. he caught 3 of 7 targets for 31 yards. Mostert went just 9-29 rushing. Expect both to remain outside the top 24 RBs in our Week 18 fantasy football rankings.

Dolphins Jeff Wilson Jr. (hip) is active for today’s game vs. the Packers. He was limited in practice all week and listed as questionable, so it’s unclear how big a role he’ll play in this one. Consider Wilson a risk/reward RB3 in the plus matchup. RB Raheem Mostert remains the best bet in Miami’s backfield. RB Myles Gaskin is a healthy scratch.

Dolphins RB Jeff Wilson Jr. (hip) practiced in a limited fashion all week and is officially listed as questionable for Week 16. An absence from Wilson Jr. would give a jolt to the fantasy value of RB Raheem Mostert. Though Mostert rested for most of the week, only logging limited participation once this week, he'll be good to go as the Dolphins' RB1 presumably. The Packers' defense presents the 9th-best matchup in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs this season. Consider Mostert a RB2 with upside, and be sure to check pre-game inactives for Wilson Jr.'s status.

Dolphins RBs Raheem Mostert (NIR/rest) and Jeff Wilson Jr. (hip) logged limited participation at practice on Thursday. With so many games happening on Saturday this week, it'll be tough to gauge lineup decisions for these two. We're of the mindset that both guys seem likely to play. Unfortunately, the schedule makes it so fantasy managers will have to decide what to do sooner rather than later. Mostert and Wilson Jr. are RB3/flex options if they both play.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert did not practice on Wednesday, officially listed as a veteran rest day. Teammate Jeff Wilson Jr. (hip) participated in a limited fashion. The Dolphins' Week 16 showdown vs. the Packers is set for a Sunday kickoff. As such, there is still plenty of time for more information regarding their availability. Check back tomorrow as we learn more.

Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel said Monday that RB Jeff Wilson Jr. was close to playing Saturday night against the Bills, according to the team website. He called the RB day-to-day going forward. We'll track Wilson's status but would bet on him playing Sunday against the Packers. We'd still bet on RB Raheem Mostert leading the backfield work, but Wilson would almost certainly cut further into the split than remaining Miami RBs did at Buffalo.

Dolphins RB Jeff Wilson (hip) is inactive for tonight's game against the Bills. Raheem Mostert will operate as the clear lead back, with Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed behind him.

Dolphins RB Jeff Wilson (hip) is listed as questionable for Saturday night's game vs. the Bills. He got in just a limited practice on Thursday. Wilson would be a shaky fantasy play if he ends up suiting up on Saturday. If not, Raheem Mostert should handle the vast majority of the backfield work for Miami.

Dolphins RB Jeff Wilson (hip) remained sidelined on Wednesday. We'll see if he's able to practice tomorrow, but we're not expecting Wilson to play vs. the Bills on Saturday night.

Dolphins RB Jeff Wilson (hip) did not practice on Tuesday. HC Mike McDaniel labeled him "day-to-day" on Monday, but Wilson certainly seems to be in danger of missing Saturday night's game vs. the Bills. We'll update his status again tomorrow.

Dolphins RB Jeff Wilson is "day-to-day" with the hip injury he suffered in Sunday night's loss to the Chargers, HC Mike McDaniel said. "We have avoided the worst case scenarios for sure," McDaniel said. That's good news -- but we'd still consider Wilson iffy for Saturday night's game vs. the Bills. We'll track his status throughout the week. Wilson's absence would obviously be good news for RB Raheem Mostert's fantasy outlook.
