Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (knee) practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll be back for Sunday’s game vs. the 49ers but figures to work behind RB Jeff Wilson. In their last game together, Wilson out-carried Mostert 17 to 8 and out-targeted him 5 to 4.

Dolphins RB Jeff Wilson found the end zone in a Week 12 win over Houston. He underwhelmed with only 52 total yards against the Texans’ league-worst run defense. Still, the result — which came with Raheem Mostert sidelined — was just fine for fantasy managers. Wilson did depart this game with what was believed to be cramping, but he later returned. Week 13 turns up a meeting with his former team, the 49ers. We tentatively expect Mostert to make it back for that one, but Wilson should remain the backfield leader.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Texans. That leaves Jeff Wilson as Miami’s clear lead back in a dream matchup. He’s a RB1 play today. RBs Salvon Ahmed and Myles Gaskin are active behind Wilson.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (knee) is listed as doubtful for this weekend’s game vs. the Texans after getting in just a limited practice on Friday. HC Mike McDaniel confirmed that Mostert has an “uphill battle” to play on Sunday. His absence would leave Jeff Wilson as Miami’s clear lead back against the league’s #32 RB defense.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (knee) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He now looks extremely iffy for this weekend's game vs. the Texans. Mostert's absence would leave RBs Salvon Ahmed and Myles Gaskin behind lead back Jeff Wilson.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. We don't have any details on the knee issue, but it's a concern considering Mostert's injury history and the fact that Miami is coming off a bye. We'll see if he's able to get back on the field tomorrow, ahead of Sunday's game vs. the Texans.

Dolphins RB Jeff Wilson played ahead of RB Raheem Mostert in Week 10. The new arrival handled 61% of the snaps and 52% of the rush attempts, equating to 17 carries (vs. 8 for Mostert). Both guys found the end zone and averaged 7.0+ YPC against a broken Cleveland run D. In 2 games as a Dolphin, Wilson has now racked up 31 touches, 215 yards and a pair of scores. He’ll be an upside RB2 the next time he takes the field — Week 12 vs. an awful Houston run D.

The Dolphins split RB touches close to 50/50 in a Week 9 win over Chicago. Raheem Mostert totaled 9 carries and 2 targets; new Dolphin Jeff Wilson handled 9 carries and 3 targets. Mostert scored on the ground from 1 yard out, while Wilson scored on a 10-yard reception out of the backfield. Look for a workload split to remain in place going forward, making both guys low-end RB2s/FLEXs for the road ahead.

The Dolphins have acquired RB Jeff Wilson from the 49ers in exchange for a 2023 5th-round pick. He’ll immediately slot in as the #2 back following today's trade of Chase Edmonds. Like Raheem Mostert, Wilson joins the squad with experience alongside HC Mike McDaniel. The new Dolphin is a poor bet for standalone fantasy value, but he carries handcuff appeal in Miami’s dynamic offense.

The 49ers stayed with their stated plan for RB Christian McCaffrey in his 1st game with the team Sunday. He played 22 total snaps -- 28% of the team total -- logging 8 carries for 38 yards and 2 catches for 24 yards (on 2 targets). Jeff Wilson Jr. led the backfield in playing time and ran for 54 yards on 7 carries. He matched McCaffrey in routes but went without a catch on just 1 target. Rookie Tyrion Davis-Price mixed in for 2 carries (4 yards) and 2 targets (0 catches). We'd bet on a big shift toward McCaffrey for the Week 8 visit to the Rams. Don't plan on using Wilson in your fantasy football lineups.

New 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey is expected to play Sunday against the Chiefs. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the team has a “package of plays” for him after McCaffrey dove into learning the offense. We’ll all be guessing at just how much McCaffrey gets the ball. Check Sunday morning for our most up-to-date projections

The Panthers are trading RB Christian McCaffrey to the 49ers, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. It's obviously a big upgrade in terms of supporting cast for McCaffrey. The 49ers rank 19th in points per game and 18th in yards per game, while the Panthers sit 27th in points per game and dead last in yards per game. San Francisco is also a balanced to run-leaning offense, so McCaffrey should see plenty of rushing volume. We do worry a bit about his target volume, though, in an offense that also features Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk and George Kittle. Overall, we'd consider this about a wash for the fantasy value of McCaffrey, who currently sits 4th among RBs in PPR points per game. We'll see if he'll play vs. the Chiefs this weekend. Carolina, meanwhile, is left with a backfield committee of D'Onta Foreman and Chuba Hubbard in a bad offense. We'll see exactly what that workload split looks like, but neither guy is an exciting fantasy option.

Update: Carolina will receive 2nd-, 3rd- and 4th-round picks in 2023, plus a 5th-rounder in 2024, according to Schefter.

Update: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport calls McCaffrey "likely" to play vs. the Chiefs on Sunday and adds, "expect a red-zone package." We'll see what else we hear about McCaffrey's projected Week 7 role.

Niners RB Jeff Wilson Jr. carried just 7 times for 25 yards and went catchless on 1 target in Sunday's 14-point loss to the Falcons. The game found Tyrion Davis-Price active, but he didn't draw a touch. Tevin Coleman carried 4 times for 3 yards.

49ers RB Ty Davis-Price (ankle) put in a full practice on Wednesday. It looks like he's ready to return from his Week 2 high-ankle sprain. The rookie figures to slot in 3rd on the depth chart for now, behind RBs Jeff Wilson and Tevin Coleman.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson popped off for 17 carries, 120 yards and 1 score in Week 5. Tevin Coleman mixed in for 8 carries, with 5 of them and a garbage time TD coming deep in the 4th. Coleman did catch a 1st quarter TD, however, while he out-targeted Wilson 3-2. Elijah Mitchell (knee) remains at least a couple of weeks away from returning to action. So Wilson — who’s hit 74+ yards in 4 straight — will remain a viable RB2 in the short-term. Next up is a road matchup with Atlanta.

49ers RB Tevin Coleman was promoted from the practice squad and is active for tonight's game vs. the Rams. "Expect him, Jeff Wilson and Deebo Samuel to get carries today," The Athletic's Matt Barrows tweeted. Wilson remains the best RB play in this game, but Coleman is an interesting flier in 1-game DFS contests.

49ers RB Ty Davis-Price (ankle), as expected, has been ruled out for Monday night's game vs. the Rams. RB Jeff Wilson played 73% of the offensive snaps, handled 12 of 13 RB carries and saw 3 targets last week and figures to play a similar role on Monday night.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson led the 49ers’ backfield in Week 3, rushing 12 times for 75 yards. He gashed the Broncos for an explosive 37-yard run but averaged 3.4 yards on his 11 other attempts. Deebo Samuel mixed in with 5 carries for 6 yards; Jordan Mason saw only 1 attempt. In total, Wilson handled 73% of the backfield snaps with Elijah Mitchell and Ty Davis-Price sidelined. Wilson did fumble after catching his 3rd pass of the night on San Francisco’s final drive, but we don’t see it changing his role going forward. Next up is a home date with the Rams.
