Shark Bites

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (knee) is listed as doubtful for this weekend’s game vs. the Texans after getting in just a limited practice on Friday. HC Mike McDaniel confirmed that Mostert has an “uphill battle” to play on Sunday. His absence would leave Jeff Wilson as Miami’s clear lead back against the league’s #32 RB defense.

Recent Shark Bites

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.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert caught a team-high 8 passes for 62 yards and a TD in Sunday's loss to the Patriots. Already down QB Tua Tagovailoa (concussion), Miami lost backup QB Teddy Bridgewater to a finger injury late in the 3rd quarter. QB Skylar Thompson targeted RBs with 11 of his 21 attempts after that, including 5 of Mostert's catches. We'll see who lines up behind center for the Dolphins in Week 18. RB Jeff Wilson Jr. led the rushing vs. New England, with 15 carries for just 45 yards. he caught 3 of 7 targets for 31 yards. Mostert went just 9-29 rushing. Expect both to remain outside the top 24 RBs in our Week 18 fantasy football rankings.
