Raheem Mostert easily leads Week 14 backfield

Raheem Mostert Headshot

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert racked up 21 carries for 96 yards and two TDs in Monday night's loss to the Titans. He played 64% of Miami's offensive snaps and tripled up RB De'Von Achane in carries. Mostert has now carried 20+ times in three of his last four games. The other was the blowout win over the Commanders when he barely played in the second half. Miami gets tough pass defenses in the Jets, Cowboys, and Ravens the next three weeks. All three of those teams rank better in pass defense DVOA than rush defense DVOA. So we could see the Dolphins lean a bit more toward the run -- especially with WR Tyreek Hill banged up. Mostert needs the rushing volume (and TDs) because he's totaled just five targets over his last four games. That lowers his weekly floor. But the rushing volume has been strong enough to keep him in must-start territory.
