Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He got in just a limited practice last Friday before missing the Texans game. HC Mike McDaniel has seemed optimistic about Mostert's chances of returning for Sunday's game vs. the 49ers, but we'll keep an eye on him over the next few days.

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.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert handled 16 of 23 RB carries for Miami, tallying 79 yards in the Sunday night win over the Steelers. He added 4 catches for 30 yards and a TD among 5 targets, snagging the team's only score. Chase Edmonds got less than half as much playing time: 18 snaps vs. 44. He finished with 7-17 rushing and no catches on 2 targets. Edmonds is solely a handcuff for fantasy purposes, while Mostert is looking like a weekly RB2. He gets a terrific matchup with Detroit in Week 8.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Vikings. He got in just 2 limited practices this week and was listed as questionable, adding some risk to his fantasy profile. But Mostert should be busy today as long as that knee holds up. RB Myles Gaskin is a healthy scratch for this one, suggesting confidence in Mostert’s health.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Vikings. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. We haven’t heard any concern about Mostert’s status, but you’ll need to check back Sunday morning to make sure he’s active.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (knee) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That puts him on track to play vs. the Vikings this weekend, although it'd be nice to see him get in a full practice on Friday.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. We've heard no mention of an injury, so this could be more of a rest day after Mostert handled 19 touches in last weekend's loss to the Jets. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel said Wednesday that he plans to start QB Skylar Thompson vs. the Vikings this weekend. McDaniel said QB Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) will be inactive for that one. QB Teddy Bridgewater has a chance to clear concussion protocol by Sunday but would back up Thompson in that case. Thompson is a 7th-round rookie out of Kansas State, where he posted a 62% completion rate and 8.0 yards per attempt across 5 seasons. Thompson had an impressive preseason, ranking 15th among 77 QBs in Pro Football Focus' passing grades. He went 19-of-33 (58%) for 166 yards (5.0 YPA), 0 TDs and 1 INT in relief of Bridgewater vs. the Jets last week. Thompson is just a low-end QB2 for Week 6 and should be considered a downgrade for Miami's skill-position guys.

After nudging ahead of Chase Edmonds in recent weeks, Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert took over in Sunday's loss to the Jets. He played 46 snaps vs. 13 for Myles Gaskin and 10 for Chase Edmonds. That included running 20 pass routes to 14 combined for Gaskin and Edmonds. Mostert claimed 18 of 23 RB carries for the game, delivering 113 yards and a TD. TE Durham Smythe ran for the team's only other TD. Edmonds logged just 1 carry for 1 yard and caught neither of his 2 targets. Gaskin ran 4 games for 9 yards and ranked 2nd on the team with 5 targets. He caught 3 of those for 24 yards. Edmonds looks cuttable in many fantasy football leagues at this point.
