Bottom Line

You’re not drafting Achane expecting 2023-level efficiency.

But is there some room for him to jump up to ~15 touches per game?

After adding weight this offseason – our answer is yes.

It’ll come down to health for Achane, who’ll need to prove his new frame can hold up. He ultimately profiles as a volatile RB1.

What We Learned Last Year

  • Achane became one of the best picks in 2023 fantasy drafts.
    • Across 11 appearances, he finished as a top-8 PPR back five times.
  • He posted unbelievable efficiency marks.
    • Among 50 RBs with 100+ carries, the rookie ranked first in yards per carry (7.77), first in EPA per rush (0.32), and T-first in yards after contact per attempt (3.29).
    • He scored 11 total TDs, with two coming from 65+ yards out.
    • Achane broke 10 tackles on 31 receptions, scoring 3 times. He lined up all over the formation, helping him average a huge 9.5 yards after catch per reception.
  • That efficiency was key, as Achane generally played a 1B role alongside Raheem Mostert.
    • Mostert handled 13.9 carries per game; 10.2 for Achane.
  • Better health would have led to an even bigger season.
    • Achane made his NFL debut in Week 2 due to an August shoulder sprain.
    • Come Week 5, he sustained a knee injury that forced an IR stint.
    • Returning in Week 11, Achane banged the same knee and missed one more game. (Miami played on a short week, which likely played a role.)
    • Achane dealt with toe and rib injuries moving forward.

What to Expect in 2024

  • The Dolphins used a Round 4 pick on speed back Jaylen Wright.
    • He’s likely to slot in as the RB3. The rookie isn’t expected to impact Achane right away.
  • Raheem Mostert returns for his age-32 season.
    • Despite the advanced age, Mostert’s missed only three games over the past two seasons.
    • He signed a contract extension in March and will remain a major part of the backfield rotation.
  • HC Mike McDaniel commented on Achane adding muscle this offseason.
    • Said McDaniel: “[I’m] seeing some strength gains and you can tell by his body he’s put some work into it…[he’s] just understanding everything about our offense so he can be as big a part of it as possible. That’s his goal.”
  • Miami’s offense retains key pieces around Achane in QB Tua Tagovailoa and WRs Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle.
  • The O-line will demand attention, especially after losing stud G Robert Hunt.
    • Note: Miami ranked 8th in run block win rate last year.

Dolphins Looking For More Ways To Get De'Von Achane The Ball

Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel plans to diversify RB De'Von Achane's role and get him the ball in more ways this season. Smart idea. Achane averaged an NFL-record 7.8 yards per carry last year. There's seemingly still meat on the bone in the passing game, though, where Achane averaged just 7.3 yards per catch.

The Dolphins added Tennessee RB Jaylen Wright in Round 4. Wright is one of the most explosive RBs in this year’s class. He averaged 6.2 yards per carry over his three college seasons, including a huge 7.4 yards per carry in 2023. 14.0% of Wright’s runs last year went for 15+ yards – the second-highest rate among this year’s top-25 RB prospects. So it wasn’t a big surprise when he blazed a 4.38-second 40 time at 5’11 and 210 pounds. Wright isn’t just a pure speed back, though. He runs with plenty of power, averaging 4.35 yards after contact per attempt last year – fifth among 157 qualifying RBs. Wright played in a spread offense at Tennessee that afforded him some huge running lanes. He’ll have a transition to make to his NFL scheme. But his combination of size, explosiveness, and long speed can’t be taught. Wright also proved capable in the passing game this past year, catching 22 balls for 141 yards. We see a lot of Lamar Miller in his game. Wright adds more speed to an explosive Dolphins offense, although he’ll be challenged to find playing time behind De’Von Achane and Raheem Mostert. Mostert recently inked an extension that keeps him in Miami through the 2025 season.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (knee, ankle) got in a limited practice on Tuesday. It's a good sign after he missed five of six practices over the previous two weeks. Mostert is expected back for Saturday night's Wild Card game vs. the Chiefs, but it's still unclear how big a workload he'll be ready to handle.

Dolphins RB De’Von Achane tallied 10 carries for 56 rushing yards and a TD in Week 18 vs. the Bills. The rookie also caught one pass and added 5 yards as a pass-catcher in Sunday night’s contest. Though injuries to Achane’s shoulder, knee, and toe limited him to 11 games in 2023, the speedster was able to finish as the RB5 in PPR points per game (17.3) and lead the league with a gaudy 7.8 yards per carry (YPC). To put that number into context, consider that Achane’s 7.8 YPC ranks first among all RBs with at least 100 carries over the past 20 seasons combined. The next closest player in that span is former Chiefs great Jamaal Charles’ 6.4 YPC in 2010. Injury concerns aside, there’s no dismissing the game-breaking, big-play capability that Achane demonstrated with the Dolphins this year. He won’t turn 23 until October of 2024 and should be considered as one of the most valuable, albeit volatile, dynasty RB assets moving forward.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (knee, ankle) is inactive for tonight’s game vs. the Bills. He’s expected to be back for next week’s playoff opener. De’Von Achane should operate as Miami’s clear lead back tonight, with RB Jeff Wilson behind him.

Dynasty Write-up
Raheem Mostert led Miami's backfield in 2023. But Achane's 11 total TDs and nearly 1,000 total yards showed his potential in a high-octane, Mike McDaniel offense. Mostert is under contract for 2024, but Achane is here to stay as an impactful fantasy asset. Just note: With rookie speedster Jaylen Wright now in the mix, Achane's volatility figures to stick around.
