Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert missed his second straight practice on Thursday. He's been sitting out Wednesdays lately, but this is the first time this season he's been out on Wednesday and Thursday. Mostert is listed on the injury report with knee, ankle, and vet rest, so we don't know whether the injuries are actually what's keeping him sidelined. Check back tomorrow for another update on Mostert's status for Sunday's game vs. the Cowboys.

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 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 Raheem Mostert (ankle, knee) is not listed on the final injury report for this weekend's game vs. the Commanders. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. Mostert might lose a few touches to RB De'Von Achane on Sunday, but he remains a nice fantasy play with Miami sporting a big 29.5-point implied total.

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.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (ankle, knee) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. The 31-year-old is already up to 151 carries -- the second-most of his career -- and his body is probably feeling it. But he should be out there for Sunday's game vs. the Commanders.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (ankle, knee) did not practice on Wednesday. He was on the injury report with these ailments the past two weeks but practiced on a limited basis on both Wednesdays. We're still tentatively expecting Mostert to play vs. the Commanders this weekend but will keep you updated on his status.

Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel said Monday that two key factors kept RB De'Von Achane out of Friday's win over the Jets. First, Miami wants to have "full confidence" in Achane's knee before playing him again, according to NFL Network's Cameron Wolfe. Friday's game also meant a short week and a matchup with a physical opponent. Achane reportedly has a better chance of playing this Sunday against the Commanders, though the Dolphins obviously aren't making that decision yet. We'll watch the rookie RB's status throughout the week.

Dolphins RB De’Von Achane (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Jets. He got in three limited practices this week and was listed as questionable, so a Week 13 return seems possible. RBs Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson, and Darrynton Evans are active for Miami today. Mostert should handle the majority of the backfield work against New York’s 29th-ranked RB defense.

Dolphins RB De'Von Achane (knee) is listed as questionable for Friday afternoon's game vs. the Jets. He was limited in practice all week. The Dolphins elevated RB Darrynton Evans from the practice squad on Thursday, which is an indication that they're not particularly optimistic about Achane's availability for this one. We'll get Miami's inactives around 1:30 pm ET on Friday.

Dolphins beat writer Barry Jackson writes that RB De’Von Achane’s status for Week 12 “seems highly questionable.” Miami plays on Friday afternoon, which doesn’t give the rookie’s knee much time to heal. “He was feeling better this morning,” HC Mike McDaniel said Monday. “It’s not going to require surgery. We are getting extra feedback and opinions and taking that day by day this week.” McDaniel also shared that Achane’s right knee was injured on Sunday – the same one he sprained in Week 5. We’ll let you know when there’s another update on his status. In the meantime, Raheem Mostert will remain the clear RB1, with Salvon Ahmed as the likely change-of-pace option. Note: Jeff Wilson was a healthy scratch in Week 11.

Dolphins RB De'Von Achane is questionable to return to Sunday's game vs. the Raiders with a knee injury. This is presumably related to the injury that had the rookie sidelined since Week 5. We'll update Achane's status when we know more. His absence leaves Miami with RBs Raheem Mostert and Salvon Ahmed.

Dolphins RB De'Von Achane (knee) is officially active for today’s game vs. the Raiders. The rookie isn’t the safest play in his first action since Week 5, but his upside is huge. Achane finished as a top-5 PPR RB in each of his last three games. And Vegas ranks 23rd in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs. RB Jeff Wilson is a healthy scratch today, leaving Salvon Ahmed as the No. 3 RB behind Achane and Raheem Mostert.

The Dolphins have activated RB De'Von Achane (knee) from IR, making him available to play Sunday against the Raiders. We've been expecting Achane to be available this week, his first week of eligibility. You can find the rookie in RB1 territory of our Week 11 rankings. His return adds a challenge for RB Raheem Mostert's workload, but he still carries plenty of upside as well and belongs in your fantasy lineup in most cases.

The Dolphins are opening the 21-day practice window for rookie RB De'Von Achane to return from IR. Achane missed the past four games with a knee sprain, but Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald says it "sounds like there's an excellent chance" the rookie plays this week. HC Mike McDaniel reportedly even indicated that Achane could have played through the issue with a brace on the affected knee. But the team decided that didn't fit the player's long-term interests. Achane, of course, has scored fantasy points at a ridiculous rate when on the field so far this year, leading all RBs in PPR points per game on just 11.75 touches per contest. He's likely bound for some regression on that, but should also remain a weekly fantasy starter. His combo of game-breaking speed and an offense designed to exploit that skill makes Achane a high-upside play across matchups. His return challenges RB Raheem Mostert's role a bit but hasn't altered Mostert's touch count to date. Mostert has averaged 13.4 touches across five full games without Achane; 14.0 per game in the three contests in which Achane played a significant role. (The rookie touched the ball only twice in his first game.) RBs Jeff Wilson Jr. and Salvon Ahmed, on the other hand, can be dropped in most redraft formats.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert tallied 85 rushing yards and 1 score in Week 9. His 13-yard cutback run in the third quarter put his season-long scoring tally at 13. Miami gave Mostert 12 carries in the narrow loss, good for a healthy 70.5% carry share. The Fins enters a Week 10 bye before facing Vegas the following week. Barring a setback, De’Von Achane should return for that one. Still, Mostert profiles as a top-15 RB going forward.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) is not listed on the final Week 9 injury report. He got in just limited practices on Thursday and Friday but is in no danger of missing Sunday morning’s game vs. the Chiefs in Germany.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He confirmed afterward that he fully expects to play vs. the Chiefs on Sunday morning. We'll see how Mostert is listed on the final injury report tomorrow, but he can stay penciled into Week 9 fantasy lineups.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. He played through this issue last week and should be ready for Sunday morning's game vs. the Chiefs in Germany. But it's a reminder that Mostert isn't at 100% right now.
