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.

Dolphins RB Chase Edmonds delivered 2 goal line scores in Miami’s upset win over Buffalo. Week 3 didn’t exactly turn up huge yardage numbers, though. Edmonds posted 21 yards on 6 carries; Raheem Mostert tallied 8 carries for 11 yards. And this was against a short-handed Bills defense. Mostert also out-snapped Edmonds, although the numbers were close (24-19). This backfield figures to remain fluid for a Week 4 Thursday night game at Cincinnati.

After trailing teammate Chase Edmonds in playing time and opportunities in the opener, RB Raheem Mostert took the lead position in Sunday's win over the Ravens. He carried 11 times (for 51 yards, 4.6 per carry) to Edmonds' 5 and matched his 3 targets, catching then all for 28 yards. Edmonds contributed 33 yards on the ground (6.6 per rush) and caught 1 pass for 8 yards. The 2 saw nearly identical playing time, so expect the variable workloads to continue.

Dolphins RB Chase Edmonds claimed 12 carries and 4 targets in Sunday's win over the Patriots, easily leading Mostert's 5 carries and 1 target. Neither guy offered impressive production, averaging 2.1 and 3.2 yards per carry, respectively. Edmonds did put up 4-40 receiving. Miami visits the Ravens next.

Dolphins RB Chase Edmonds (groin) was limited in Wednesday's practice. It's the first we've heard of the injury. We're still tentatively expecting Edmonds to play vs. the Patriots on Sunday, but we'll keep an eye on his status over the next few days. Edmonds' absence would turn Raheem Mostert into Miami's lead back.

The Dolphins have released RB Sony Michel, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. It's a little surprising after the team signed Michel to essentially the same contract as Raheem Mostert this offseason, but Myles Gaskin worked in ahead of Michel in the team's final preseason game. Michel's departure leaves Mostert as the clear top partner for Chase Edmonds in the Miami backfield. Mostert has been a value in fantasy football drafts. We'll see how much his ADP climbs with Michel's departure. Gaskin is now interesting near the end of drafts as well.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (knee) said via Twitter on Monday that he's been medically cleared. It was surely in response to ESPN's Marcel Louis-Jacques' report earlier in the day that Mostert "might not be ready for Week 1." We'll keep an eye on Mostert's health -- and role in this offense -- over the next few weeks.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (knee) "might not be ready for Week 1," according to ESPN's Marcel Louis-Jacques, because he's "still recovering from a late-season knee injury." That's news to us. Mostert had surgery in September to address a knee cartilage issue, but there had been no reports of a "late-season" injury. The 30-year-old has played in just 9 games over the past 2 seasons and is tough to like as more than a late-round flier in fantasy drafts. Dolphins RBs Chase Edmonds and Sony Michel are more attractive picks. We'll keep an eye on Mostert's status leading up to the opener.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert indicated last week that the knee he injured in Week 1 of 2021 is almost back to full strength. "Rehab is going great! Close to 100%," he tweeted. Mostert has yet to practice with his new team since signing in March. It doesn't seem like great news from here that his left knee -- which had to have "chipped cartilage" repaired in the area of his meniscus -- isn't yet all the way back. But we never saw a publicized return timeline for the uncommon procedure. We'll see about Mostert's status (and role) come training camp. He'll compete with Chase Edmonds and Sony Michel for touches.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Dolphins are expected to sign RB Raheem Mostert. The veteran RB, of course, played under new Miami HC Mike McDaniel in San Francisco, where McDaniel spent 2021 as OC after 4 seasons as run-game coordinator. We'll see about the plan for Mostert in a backfield that has already added RB Chase Edmonds in free agency. Mostert is going in the late rounds of early best-ball drafting, which gives him upside at a low-risk price. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports it's a 1-year, $3.25 million deal.

RB Raheem Mostert is "making a full recovery and will be ready to play this season," agent Brett Tessler tells ESPN's Adam Schefter. Mostert is rehabbing a knee-cartilage injury and went for testing this week under Dr. Dan Cooper in Dallas. Mostert is set to hit free agency next week. There have been rumors of interest from both sides on him re-signing with the 49ers. Mostert is a low-risk shot late in current best-ball fantasy football drafts.

49ers RB Raheem Mostert announced on social media that he'll undergo season-ending knee surgery after consulting with multiple doctors. So, if you weren't already planning to, you can safely drop Mostert from all redraft rosters. San Francisco is left with Elijah Mitchell, JaMycal Hasty and Trey Sermon at RB. All 3 figure to be active for Week 2. It's also worth noting that RB Jeff Wilson (knee) is eligible to come off the PUP list in Week 7. You can see where all of those guys sit in our updated Rest-of-Season Rankings.

Niners RB Raheem Mostert has chipped cartilage in the knee he injured Sunday. ESPN’s Nick Wagoner reports that he’ll land on IR and is expected to miss 8 weeks. Elijah Mitchell took control of the backfield after Mostert left in Detroit, with JaMycal Hasty involved as well. We’d bet on Trey Sermon being active at Philly in Week 2. We’ll see about the workload split. Obviously, we have to assume that Mitchell will lead the way again — barring reports to the contrary.
