Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert busted off 115 yards and 2 scores in a Week 6 win over Carolina. Miami fell behind 14-0 in the 1st quarter, but Mostert responded with two scores over the next two quarters – both inside the five yard-line. Remember that Miami entered this one without RBs Jeff Wilson and De’Von Achane. Carolina also profiled as a bottom-barrel run D, so this result was far from a surprise for Mostert. He’ll face a much stiffer test next Sunday night at Philly.

Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill pulled up with a left hamstring issue in the third quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Panthers. It's unclear if he's injured or cramping. We'll update his status when we know more.

Update: The Dolphins say Hill is questionable to return due to cramps. Good news.

Update: Tyreek Hill has returned to the game.

Dolphins Edge Jaelan Phillips (oblique) is active for today's game against the Panthers. He missed the past two contests and indicated during the week that he wasn't sure whether he'd be ready. Don't be surprised if he plays a smaller snap share then usual. But there's plenty of upside to make him worth a slot in IDP lineups. Edge Andrew Van Ginkel -- who has seen playing-time boosts in Phillips' absence -- remains an upside play for this contest as well.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Dolphins RB De'Von Achane (knee) is expected back when first eligible in Week 11. On IR, Achane is out for the next four games, and Miami has a Week 10 bye. The rookie is worth keeping stashed in all fantasy leagues.

Dolphins RB Jeff Wilson (ribs, finger) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game vs. the Panthers. He put in three limited practices this week, so we'll see if he's ready to make his 2023 debut next weekend vs. the Eagles. RB Raheem Mostert should handle the majority of Miami's backfield work tomorrow.

Dolphins Edge Jaelan Phillips (oblique) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers. Phillips managed limited practices all week, which is also what he did last week before entering the game questionable and going inactive. We'll check his status Sunday morning.

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 HC Mike McDaniel called RB De'Von Achane's knee injury a sprain but wouldn't give any additional details on Wednesday. McDaniel did say that placing Achane on IR "wasn't a black-and-white decision," which would seem to suggest that Miami doesn't expect the rookie to miss more than the four games required for players on IR. We'll look for more information on Achane's timeline for return, but he's worth keeping stashed on fantasy benches right now.

Dolphins RB Jeff Wilson (ribs, finger) was officially limited in Wednesday's practice. We'll see how he progresses over the next couple of days and whether he'll be ready to play vs. the Panthers this weekend.

Dolphins RB De'Von Achane (knee) has been placed on IR. He'll miss the next four games vs. Carolina, Philadelphia, New England, and Kansas City. Miami then has a Week 10 bye, so Week 11 is the earliest we'll see Achane again. We're still waiting for details on his knee injury and whether he'll be ready come Week 11. Considering how awesome Achane was over the last three weeks, he's worth keeping stashed in all fantasy leagues.

Dolphins RB De'Von Achane is expected to miss "multiple weeks" with the knee injury he suffered against the Giants, according to multiple reports. The rookie is a candidate for IR, though the team reportedly hasn't decided on that yet. We'll watch for more specifics on that front. ESPN's Adam Schefter adds that Miami is expected to get RB Jeff Wilson Jr. back at practice this week. He has been on IR with hand and rib injuries. Wilson's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, has long said his client would return to the field when eligible. That window opened in Week 5.

Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel said Monday they hadn't decided yet whether to open the 21-day practice window this week for RB Jeff Wilson Jr., according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. A separate report had agent Drew Rosenhaus saying Wilson would be activated from IR (hand, ribs) this week. We'll see what Miami decides.

Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel told reporters Monday that RB De'Von Achane is being evaluated for a knee injury, according to Ari Meirov of The 33rd Team. We'll certainly be waiting for more details on this situation -- and passing them along as soon as they're available. Miami RB Jeff Wilson Jr. is eligible to come off IR at any time and is expected to start practicing this week.

Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill totaled 8 catches for 181 yards in Week 5. He added his fifth TD of the year. (Hill notched only 7 scores in 17 games last season.) The former Chief destroyed man coverage for a deep ball along the sideline for a 69-yard score. Hill also showed his run-after-catch wheels on a 64-yard gain later on. Entering a Week 6 date vs. Carolina, we’re not looking to sell high here.

Dolphins RB De’Von Achane broke off another long run in Sunday’s win over the Giants. Achane's 76-yard score showcased the latest example of his speed and acceleration to the edge. He matched Raheem Mostert in opportunities (12), while both backs fumbled. (Achane’s was lost.) In his current form, Achane will remain a must-start going forward. Next up is a cupcake matchup vs. Carolina.

Dolphins Edge Jaelan Phillips (oblique) is inactive for today's game against the Giants. That boosts the upside for Edge Andrew Van Ginkel, who is a strong IDP option for Week 5.

Dolphins Edge Jaelan Phillips (oblique) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants. He managed limited practices all week after missing last Sunday's loss in Buffalo. The Palm Beach Post reports that Phillips "said he's not 100 percent but is confident he's healthy enough to help the team." If he's active, Phillips belongs in IDP lineups against the Giants. S DeShon Elliott (groin) is off the final injury report and ready to return after missing Week 4.

Dolphins Edge Jaelan Phillips put in limited practices Wednesday and Thursday. That's progress after he missed practice all last week with an oblique injury that cost him the Buffalo game. We'll see Friday about Phillips' game outlook. Meanwhile, S DeShon Elliott (groin) graduated to a full Thursday practice. He spent all last week limited before missing the game and then remained limited Wednesday.

Dolphins RB De'Von Achane scored twice in a Week 4 loss to Buffalo. In fact, Achane scored on his first two carries. He added 5 targets, tied for second-most and a 14.2% team share. On the ground, he led the way with 7 attempts – one more than Raheem Mostert. The takeaway here is that Achane continues to be used creatively, and it’s clear his speed will be a weekly part of the game plan. Fire him up as an RB2 for Sunday’s matchup vs. the Giants.

Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill managed only 3 grabs for 58 yards in Sunday's loss to Buffalo. Credit a tough Bills defense for dialing up pressure on Tua Tagovailoa, limiting Hill's opportunities. His 5 targets marked his fewest since Week 3 of last season (vs. Buffalo). Look for a rebound next week at home vs. the Giants, who will play on short rest.
