Dolphins RB Salvon Ahmed (groin) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Broncos. We’ll see how big a role rookie RB De’Von Achane plays, but RB Raheem Mostert figures to handle the majority of the work.

Dolphins RB Salvon Ahmed (groin) is listed as doubtful for this weekend’s game vs. the Broncos. He returned to a limited practice on Friday but isn’t expected to play on Sunday. Ahmed’s absence will leave De’Von Achane as Miami’s No. 2 back and lock Raheem Mostert into a big workload.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert racked up 121 rushing yards, including a 43-yard TD, on 18 carries in Week 2 vs. the Patriots. The ageless wonder also added 6 receiving yards on his lone target in the victory. Teammate Salvon Ahmed contributed 6 touches of his own before a groin injury took him out of the contest, though this backfield was more or less the Mostert Show for the second game in a row. It’s worth mentioning that rookie De’Von Achane made his debut on Sunday night, though he only received a couple of touches. Mostert will look to continue his success in Week 3 vs. the Broncos.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (knee) is not listed on the final Week 2 injury report. He sat out on Wednesday but put in full practices on Thursday and Friday. He’s ready for lead-back duties in Sunday night’s game vs. New England.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (knee) returned to a full practice on Thursday. He'll be ready for lead-back duties in this weekend's game vs. the Patriots.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. "Just vet rest and maintenance. He’s good to go," NFL Network's Cameron Wolfe tweeted. It sounds like Mostert will be ready for a full workload vs. the Patriots this weekend, but we'll keep an eye on his status over the next few days.

Dolphins RB De'Von Achane is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Chargers. The rookie has some work to do to earn a role in this offense. Raheem Mostert and Salvon Ahmed will handle backfield duties for Miami today.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Dolphins RB De'Von Achane is not expected to play vs. the Chargers today. The rookie wasn't listed on the final injury report but has "some rust" after missing time in August with a shoulder injury, per Pelissero. Achane remains worth stashing on fantasy benches but is unlikely to be a viable fantasy starter for at least another few weeks. Raheem Mostert figures to handle the majority of RB touches for Miami today. Salvon Ahmed will be the No. 2 RB.

Dolphins RB De'Von Achane (shoulder) practiced without a non-contact jersey on Monday, according to The Miami Herald's Daniel Oyefusi. That puts the rookie on track to play in this weekend's opener vs. the Chargers. Achane got zero first-team snaps in the preseason and can't be trusted in Week 1 fantasy lineups. But it wouldn't be surprising if he ends up getting significant playing time on Sunday with RB Jeff Wilson out. Miami only has Achane, Salvon Ahmed, and Chris Brooks behind lead back Raheem Mostert.

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.

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 are re-signing RB Raheem Mostert on a two-year, $5.6 million agreement, according to multiple reports. It's a bigger contract than the one-year, $2.125 million pact that brought Mostert in last season. But the annual average is similar. (ESPN's Adam Schefter adds that incentives give the contract a max value of $7.6 million.) Mostert opened last season splitting work with Chase Edmonds and finished it splitting with Jeff Wilson Jr. Despite that, Mostert tallied career highs in most categories while missing just one game. We're expecting further moves in the Miami backfield, which will affect Mostert's fantasy outlook. But he's a fine value right now at his late-round best ball ADP.

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.
