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 Jeff Wilson (ribs, finger) was officially limited in Wednesday's practice. We'll see how he progresses over the next couple of days and whether he'll be ready to play vs. the Panthers this weekend.

Dolphins RB De'Von Achane is expected to miss "multiple weeks" with the knee injury he suffered against the Giants, according to multiple reports. The rookie is a candidate for IR, though the team reportedly hasn't decided on that yet. We'll watch for more specifics on that front. ESPN's Adam Schefter adds that Miami is expected to get RB Jeff Wilson Jr. back at practice this week. He has been on IR with hand and rib injuries. Wilson's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, has long said his client would return to the field when eligible. That window opened in Week 5.

Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel said Monday they hadn't decided yet whether to open the 21-day practice window this week for RB Jeff Wilson Jr., according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. A separate report had agent Drew Rosenhaus saying Wilson would be activated from IR (hand, ribs) this week. We'll see what Miami decides.

Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel told reporters Monday that RB De'Von Achane is being evaluated for a knee injury, according to Ari Meirov of The 33rd Team. We'll certainly be waiting for more details on this situation -- and passing them along as soon as they're available. Miami RB Jeff Wilson Jr. is eligible to come off IR at any time and is expected to start practicing this week.

Dolphins RB Jeff Wilson's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, expects Wilson to be back when first eligible in Week 5. Rosenhaus is obviously biased, so it's tough to put too much stock into his timeline. HC Mike McDaniel sounded much less optimistic about Wilson's status on Thursday. We'll continue to look for updates on the situation, but Wilson is only worth rostering in deep fantasy leagues or fantasy leagues with an IR spot.

Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel says RB Jeff Wilson Jr. landed on IR with a "midsection injury compounded by some finger issues," according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. We're guessing that means the combo of injuries was enough to make the team think Wilson needed time to heal up. McDaniel didn't seem to give an expected return timeline, but what he did say seems ominous: "I wouldn't be surprised if he would make a return this season. We will let his body tell us." That makes it sound like a return this season is not definite. We'll obviously keep watching this season. It's worth noting that McDaniel is often not the most serious coach in press conferences. But it's tough to advocate drafting Wilson at all right now. RB Raheem Mostert, on the other hand, looks like a high-upside selection in the double-digit rounds. You might be able to start him right away against the Chargers in Week 1.

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.

The Dolphins are one of two teams that have made a trade offer for Colts RB Jonathan Taylor, according to The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson. The Dolphins' offer was not accepted, obviously, but the team continues to engage in talks with Indianapolis, per Jackson. We'll see where this goes. Miami would be an excellent landing spot for Taylor's fantasy value -- and crush RBs Jeff Wilson and Raheem Mostert.

Dolphins RB De'Von Achane avoided a severe injury to his shoulder, HC Mike McDaniel told reporters Monday. But according to NFL Network's Cameron Wolfe, the rookie RB is considered "week-to-week." That's a particularly tough spot for a young back who has been running fifth on the RB depth chart so far. We'll see whether Achane can return to the field before the regular-season opener. We're moving him down the RB rankings for upcoming fantasy football drafts, though.

The Dolphins held RBs Jeff Wilson and Raheem Mostert out of Friday night's preseason opener vs. the Falcons. But Devon Achane was still just the third RB to hit the field for Miami, behind Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed. Achane, of course, is a rookie and missed a couple of days of practice earlier in the week with an undisclosed injury. We're still expecting him to be one of Miami's top-three backs by the time Week 1 rolls around, but his standing on the depth chart will be worth watching closely the rest of the summer.

Dolphins RB Jeff Wilson returned to practice after a two-day absence. He suited up with a compression sleeve on his right leg, per beat reporter Daniel Oyefusi. Miami surely has a plan to keep the 27-year-old fresh for Week 1. With the potential for 200+ touches, Wilson remains an intriguing late-round pick.

It looks like the market for free agent RB Dalvin Cook is heating up. According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins have made a formal contract offer to the veteran back. Jackson went on to say that “there's mutual interest" and that Cook "has called Miami a 'perfect fit'.” NFL Network's Tom Pelissero also recently spoke about Cook on The Rich Eisen Show, stating that the veteran has received "multiple offers" from various teams, so the Fins will not be alone in their pursuit. Cook showed some signs of decline last season, averaging his fewest rushing yards per game (69.0) since 2017 and losing significant target share. Wherever he ends up, we're probably not talking about a slam-dunk RB1 in fantasy anymore. But he should have a role worthy of mid-round draft consideration. Cook landing in Miami would throw an already busy backfield -- Jeff Wilson Jr., Raheem Mostert, and 2023 rookie De'Von Achane -- into an absolute frenzy. Keep an eye out for further updates.

The Dolphins selected Texas A&M RB Devon Achane in Round 3 of the 2023 NFL Draft. If you like playing Madden, you’ll love Achane. This 5’9, 188-pound dynamo possesses the best speed of any RB in the 2023 class (4.32-second 40-yard time at the Combine). He makes up for what he lacks in size in elite acceleration, quality pass-catching skills, and an underappreciated ability to slip defenders in close quarters. Achane is unlikely ever to become the leader of an NFL backfield, but remember that he logged 196 carries as a junior at Texas A&M in 2022. If the Dolphins give him enough of a role early on, we could be talking about a 2023 PPR factor. Unfortunately, the risk with Achane is that he could be pigeonholed into a role so specific that it’ll be tough to know when to start him week to week. Note: Miami returns veteran RBs Jeff Wilson and Raheem Mostert.

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.
