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.
The Dolphins are re-signing RB Raheem Mostert on a two-year, $5.6 million agreement, according to multiple reports. It's a bigger contract than the one-year, $2.125 million pact that brought Mostert in last season. But the annual average is similar. (ESPN's Adam Schefter adds that incentives give the contract a max value of $7.6 million.) Mostert opened last season splitting work with Chase Edmonds and finished it splitting with Jeff Wilson Jr. Despite that, Mostert tallied career highs in most categories while missing just one game. We're expecting further moves in the Miami backfield, which will affect Mostert's fantasy outlook. But he's a fine value right now at his late-round best ball ADP.
Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (thumb) didn't practice all week and has been ruled out for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bills. This news swings the door wide open for RB Jeff Wilson Jr. to lead the backfield in this contest. The Bills' defense has been tough all season and ranks 3rd-best in Football Outsiders' run defense DVOA over the last 4 weeks. Even so, Wilson Jr. projects to have enough volume sans Mostert to be an effective fantasy option in playoff formats.
Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (thumb) missed practice for the 2nd-straight day on Thursday. Teammate RB Jeff Wilson Jr. (illness) upgraded to full practice. There's still one more day of practice left for Mostert to log some participation in advance of Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bills. Be sure to keep an eye out for updates tomorrow.
Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert suffered a broken thumb in Sunday's win over the Jets. He garnered 11 carries and 2 targets in that one before leaving in the 3rd quarter. The injury doesn't necessarily mean Mostert will miss the Wild Card game against the Bills, but it's tough to imagine him getting significant backfield work with 1 full hand. Mostert's likely absence boosts the upside of Jeff Wilson Jr. for this weekend. We're certainly not betting on Miami getting to Round 2, though.
Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert is questionable to return for Sunday's game vs. the Jets with a thumb injury. We'll update his status when we know more. Mostert's absence leaves Miami's backfield to Jeff Wilson.
Update: Mostert has been ruled out.
