The Dolphins placed RB Salvon Ahmed on IR with a foot injury suffered in the Week 11 win over the Raiders. Ahmed is out for at least the next four games, making Week 16 his earliest possible return. He can be dropped from all redraft rosters. With RB De'Von Achane (knee) likely out for at least Friday's game vs. the Jets, Jeff Wilson will be elevated to the No. 2 spot on the depth chart. He'd be a desperation Week 12 fantasy play but is certainly worth stashing on fantasy benches. Wilson is now a Raheem Mostert injury away from a big role.

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 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 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 Salvon Ahmed (groin) is active for today’s game vs. the Bills. He figures to be the No. 3 RB behind Raheem Mostert and De’Von Achane.

Dolphins RB Salvon Ahmed (groin) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Bills. If he returns for that one, it’ll be as the No. 2 RB behind Raheem Mostert and De’Von Achane.

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 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.

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 Raheem Mostert ran for 136 yards in Saturday night's loss to the Bills. Mostert posted nearly half of that with a 67-yard run in the 1st quarter but averaged a solid 4.3 yards on the rest of his carries as well. He ceded the team's lone rushing score to RB Salvon Ahmed. Mostert handled 74% of the team's RB carries, though, and would be a strong play against the Packers in Week 16 if Jeff Wilson Jr. remains out. Mostert will likely sit inside our top 20 at the position in the Week 16 fantasy football rankings even if Wilson is back.
