Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel said Monday that RB Jeff Wilson Jr. was close to playing Saturday night against the Bills, according to the team website. He called the RB day-to-day going forward. We'll track Wilson's status but would bet on him playing Sunday against the Packers. We'd still bet on RB Raheem Mostert leading the backfield work, but Wilson would almost certainly cut further into the split than remaining Miami RBs did at Buffalo.
Dolphins RB Jeff Wilson's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, expects Wilson to be back when first eligible in Week 5. Rosenhaus is obviously biased, so it's tough to put too much stock into his timeline. HC Mike McDaniel sounded much less optimistic about Wilson's status on Thursday. We'll continue to look for updates on the situation, but Wilson is only worth rostering in deep fantasy leagues or fantasy leagues with an IR spot.
Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel says RB Jeff Wilson Jr. landed on IR with a "midsection injury compounded by some finger issues," according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. We're guessing that means the combo of injuries was enough to make the team think Wilson needed time to heal up. McDaniel didn't seem to give an expected return timeline, but what he did say seems ominous: "I wouldn't be surprised if he would make a return this season. We will let his body tell us." That makes it sound like a return this season is not definite. We'll obviously keep watching this season. It's worth noting that McDaniel is often not the most serious coach in press conferences. But it's tough to advocate drafting Wilson at all right now. RB Raheem Mostert, on the other hand, looks like a high-upside selection in the double-digit rounds. You might be able to start him right away against the Chargers in Week 1.
The Dolphins surprisingly put RB Jeff Wilson Jr. on IR Thursday. That means he'll miss at least the first four games. We had seen no indication of a significant injury to Wilson. He missed Wednesday's practice with an undisclosed issue but had otherwise only missed scant early-August time with a minor left-leg injury. This designation leaves Raheem Mostert and Chris Brooks as the only healthy RBs on the roster, and Mostert likely the clear backfield leader for Week 1 against the Chargers. De'Von Achane (shoulder) and Salvon Ahmed (concussion) worked on the side Wednesday, which could mean they have a chance to be ready for Week 1. We'll look for more on Wilson's situation and outlook. He remains stashable, though he's probably more of an early-season waiver option in most leagues now than a draft target.
Dolphins RB Jeff Wilson returned to practice after a two-day absence. He suited up with a compression sleeve on his right leg, per beat reporter Daniel Oyefusi. Miami surely has a plan to keep the 27-year-old fresh for Week 1. With the potential for 200+ touches, Wilson remains an intriguing late-round pick.
The Dolphins and RB Jeff Wilson Jr. have agreed to a two-year contract reportedly worth up to $8.2 million. This move is in correspondence with another deal struck earlier on Tuesday keeping his teammate Raheem Mostert in town, effectively making this Dolphins backfield the same as it was in 2022. Upon Wilson Jr.'s arrival via trade in Week 9, he and Mostert produced well in tandem. The two concluded the season ranking as the RB35 and RB33 overall in PPR scoring respectively in that stretch. That said, Wilson Jr. has more financial upside in his contract. If we're to give an edge to one over the other, you could logically follow the money and go with Wilson Jr. as the favorite. There's still room for the Dolphins to add to this RB room via the NFL Draft, but Wilson Jr. is the best bet to produce flex-level fantasy output with RB2 upside in a given week.
