Dolphins beat writer Barry Jackson writes that RB De’Von Achane’s status for Week 12 “seems highly questionable.” Miami plays on Friday afternoon, which doesn’t give the rookie’s knee much time to heal. “He was feeling better this morning,” HC Mike McDaniel said Monday. “It’s not going to require surgery. We are getting extra feedback and opinions and taking that day by day this week.” McDaniel also shared that Achane’s right knee was injured on Sunday – the same one he sprained in Week 5. We’ll let you know when there’s another update on his status. In the meantime, Raheem Mostert will remain the clear RB1, with Salvon Ahmed as the likely change-of-pace option. Note: Jeff Wilson was a healthy scratch in Week 11.
The final numbers from Sunday's blowout win over the Commanders suggest Dolphins RB De'Von Achane took over the backfield in his second return from a knee injury. The rookie tallied a 17-73-2 rushing line, leading the team in carries, yards, and TDs. And he ranked third among Dolphins in receptions (3) and receiving yards (30). Raheem Mostert trailed at 11-43-1 rushing, catching his lone target for 8 yards. But usage looked very different before and after halftime. According to Pro Football Focus, Mostert played 19 of Miami's 29 offensive snaps in the first half, compared with Achane's 12. Mostert hit halftime with a 9-3 carry lead and 1 target to Achane's 2 -- and Miami leading 31-7. Mostert played just 4 more snaps after the break, compared with Achane's 23. The rookie scored both of his TDs in that span. Mostert's TD came in the first half. So what's the takeaway? Expect both RBs to remain plenty involved and carry weekly TD upside. The remaining four matchups in most fantasy schedules don't look good for RB scoring (10th-worst schedule in the league by our adjusted fantasy points allowed). But the slate looks even worse for passing points. So consider Mostert and Achane weekly starting options the rest of the way. Jeff Wilson Jr., meanwhile, garnered only 4 carries even in a blowout victory. He's safe to drop in most fantasy formats.
Dolphins RB De'Von Achane (knee) will play vs. the Commanders this weekend, HC Mike McDaniel said Friday. The rookie shapes up as a risk/reward Week 13 fantasy play. He returned from this knee injury two weeks ago but lasted just three snaps before aggravating the injury. Achane has remained limited in practice this week. That's the downside. The upside? How about 518 total yards and seven TDs in his last three healthy games. Achane's return is just a slight knock against RB Raheem Mostert but knocks RB Jeff Wilson out of RB3 or flex consideration.
Update: Achane was a full participant in Friday's practice and is not listed on the final injury report.
Dolphins RB De'Von Achane (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He was officially limited in all three practices last week before missing the Jets game, so this doesn't tell us much about his status for Sunday's game vs. the Commanders. We'll keep tabs on Achane's status over the next few days.
Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel said Monday that two key factors kept RB De'Von Achane out of Friday's win over the Jets. First, Miami wants to have "full confidence" in Achane's knee before playing him again, according to NFL Network's Cameron Wolfe. Friday's game also meant a short week and a matchup with a physical opponent. Achane reportedly has a better chance of playing this Sunday against the Commanders, though the Dolphins obviously aren't making that decision yet. We'll watch the rookie RB's status throughout the week.
Dolphins RB De’Von Achane (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Jets. He got in three limited practices this week and was listed as questionable, so a Week 13 return seems possible. RBs Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson, and Darrynton Evans are active for Miami today. Mostert should handle the majority of the backfield work against New York’s 29th-ranked RB defense.
