Player Outlook
Despite the fact that we expect him to open the season as the Dolphins starting running back, Mostert is best drafted as a flex or RB3, no earlier than Round 7 in full PPR. Mostert is more valuable in leagues where catches don't count for as much, as he only saw nine targets in the last eight games of 2023. The 32-year-old just led the NFL in rushing touchdowns despite the fact that he missed the last two and a half games of the season. In 2024, he'll try to hold off both De'Von Achane and Jaylen Wright. We're very skeptical he'll be able to do that and stay healthy all year long. Mostert is an excellent choice for a zero-RB team that needs a starter at the beginning of the year, and if he's still healthy in November he'll be a cheap buy for contending Dynasty teams as well.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Happy with added backfield depth

    Mostert said Tuesday he's "excited" to have rookie fourth-round pick Jaylen Wright join himself and De'Von Achane in Miami's backfield in 2024, Nick Shook of NFL.com reports. Mostert said he's "excited to have [Wright] here and try to coach him up, try to help him out within this offense." The 32-year-old Mostert and the 22-year-old Achane are clearly the top dogs of the Dolphins' rushing attack after both had extremely efficient seasons in 2023, likely leaving Wright to begin his career as a third-string option, with veteranJeff Wilson potentially on the outside looking in. Of course, neither Mostert or Achane boast ideal profiles for a heavy workload, so Wright could find himself earning opportunities earlier than usual for a No. 3 option. All three of Mostert, Achane and Wright boast atypical explosiveness, so it's possible that head coach Mike McDaniel's scheme could manage to deploy each back relatively interchangeably.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Reworks deal with Miami

    The Dolphins and Mostert agreed to terms Friday on a reworked deal that includes an extension through the 2025 season, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports. Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Mostert's new deal with the Dolphins is worth up to $9.1 million over two years. The running back, who turns 32 years old next month, is coming off a 2023 campaign in which he ran for 1,012 yards on 209 carries in 15 regular-season games, while combining for 21 touchdowns (18 rushing and three receiving). During the upcoming season, Mostert is set to reprise his key role in a Miami backfield that also includes dynamic 2023 third-round pick De'Von Achane, as well as Jeff Wilson, Salvon Ahmed and Chris Brooks.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Shouldn't need ankle surgery

    Mostert said Monday he doesn't expect to undergo surgery to address the ankle injury that hindered him down the stretch of the 2023 season, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Mostert entered Saturday's 26-7 wild-card loss to the Chiefs nursing both knee and ankle injuries, but frigid weather conditions and an unfortunate game script limited him to eight carries for 33 yards. He also secured one of two targets for minus-3 yards. Looking ahead to his age-32 season, it's certainly encouraging that Mostert won't have to rehab from surgery, as he has yet to show signs of losing a step. Across 15 regular-season appearances, Mostert set a franchise record with 21 total scores while rushing for 1,012 yards on 209 carries (4.8 YPC). With one more season left on his two-year deal, the stage looks set for Mostert to once again headline one of the NFL's most efficient rushing attacks alongside De'Von Achane during the 2024 campaign.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Stymied in season-ending loss

    Mostert (knee/ankle) rushed eight times for 33 yards and brought in one of two targets for minus-3 yards in the Dolphins' 26-7 wild-card loss to the Chiefs on Saturday night. The veteran running back took the field for the first time since Week 16 after managing to practice in limited fashion throughout the week, but as his final line indicates, he was able to do little with his sparse opportunity. Both Mostert's carry and yardage totals were his second lowest since the start of the regular season, as the Chiefs progressively forced the Dolphins away from the ground game. The underwhelming final act of a once promising campaign was in stark contrast to Mostert's regular-season numbers, which included a career-high 1,012 rushing yards and 18 rushing touchdowns, as well as a franchise-record 21 total scores across 15 games. Mostert is on the books for a very reasonable $3.3 million cap hit in 2024, but he will likely face a significant challenge from De'Von Achane for the lead back job in training camp.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Suiting up Saturday

    Mostert (knee/ankle) is listed as active for Saturday's wild-card game against the Chiefs. Mostert, who missed the Dolphins' last two regular-season games as he contended with knee and ankle issues, was deemed limited on the team's practice reports Tuesday through Thursday and approached the contest listed as questionable. With the running back's active status confirmed, he'll have an opportunity to reclaim his key role in a Miami backfield that figures to be busy, with extreme cold weather on tap for Saturday's matchup in Kansas City. In that context, barring any in-game limitations or setbacks, Mostert should make an impact in his return to the mix, with De'Von Achane and Jeff Wilson, to a lesser degree, also available to handle their share of touches in the looming harsh playing conditions.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Opens week with limited listing

    Mostert (knee/ankle) was listed as a limited participant on Tuesday's estimated practice report, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Mostert missed the final two games of the regular season due to his pair of lower-body injuries. Even if he's cleared to play in Saturday's wild-card matchup with Kansas City, Mostert could find himself in a timeshare with rookie De'Von Achane, who has remained efficient as a runner (6.8 yards per carry) and receiver (5.8 yards per target) over the past two weeks while taking on a larger workload.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Optimism for chances to play

    Coach Mike McDaniel said Monday that he's optimistic Mostert (knee/ankle) will be able to play in Saturday's playoff game against the Chiefs, Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network reports. McDaniel said Mostert and Jaylen Waddle (ankle) both pushed to play against the Bills in Week 18, but the doctors advised against it, saying both players could do more damage. It sounds like a week off is what Mostert and Waddle needed. With all of the injuries on the defensive side of the ball for Miami, it needs all the help it can get on offense. Should Mostert play, he and De'Von Achane should carry the bulk of the load out of the backfield, with Jeff Wilson in tow as a third ball-carrying option.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Inactive Sunday

    Mostert (knee/ankle) is inactive for Sunday night's game against the Bills. Mostert, who sat out last week's 56-19 loss to the Ravens, missed practice both Wednesday and Thursday before returning to a limited session Friday and approaching this weekend with an official 'questionable' injury designation. With Mostert deemed unavailable Sunday and thus targeting a return to action in Miami's playoff opener next week, look for De'Von Achane to pace the team's Week 18 backfield, while Jeff Wilson should see his share of snaps in a complementary role. Meanwhile, Chris Brooks is also on hand to provide backfield depth versus the Bills.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Back on field Friday

    Mostert (knee/ankle) returned to practice Friday, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports. Mostert -- who was inactive for Miami's Week 17 loss to Baltimore -- missed practices Wednesday and Thursday, but the running back's participation in Friday's session suggests that he could be available Sunday against the Bills. The Dolphins' upcoming injury report will be released later Friday and will add further context with regard to Mostert's status for Miami's regular-season finale.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Still not practicing

    Mostert (knee/ankle) didn't practice Thursday, Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network reports. Mostert, who sat out this past Sunday's 56-19 loss to the Ravens, has now logged back-to-back DNPs, which sets the stage for what, if anything, he's able to do at Friday's practice to loom large in terms of his Week 18 availability. If Mostert remains sidelined Sunday night against the Bills, De'Von Achane (toe/ribs) would be in line to lead Miami's backfield, with Jeff Wilson and Chris Brooks also in the mix.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Not seen at Thursday's practice

    Mostert (knee/ankle) wasn't present for the media-access portion of Thursday's practice, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports. Mostert, who was inactive for this past Sunday's 56-19 loss to the Ravens, also missed Wednesday's practice, so what the running back is able to do Friday will be telling with regard to his status ahead of this weekend's game against the Bills. In his absence versus Baltimore, De'Von Achane paced Miami's backfield, with Jeff Wilson and Chris Brooks mixing in.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: No activity Wednesday

    Mostert (knee/ankle) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports. Mostert played through knee and ankle injuries Weeks 11 though 16, but he was inactive for this past Sunday's 56-19 loss to the Ravens. After sitting out to begin Week 18 prep, he'll now have two more chances to mix into drills before the team potentially makes a ruling on his status for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Bills with the AFC East title on the line. Rookie De'Von Achane (toe/ribs) was a limited participant Wednesday, so Miami's top two options out of the backfield continue to be banged up.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Missing first game of season

    Mostert (knee/ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Ravens. Though he's been a fixture on Miami injury reports throughout the 2023 campaign, Mostert will be missing his first game of the season in Week 17 after his pair of lower-body concerns kept him from practicing Wednesday and Thursday and limited his participation Friday. With the NFL's touchdown leader out Sunday, the Dolphins will turn the backfield over to standout rookie De'Von Achane, who could be primed to handle his largest workload of the season. Jeff Wilson should also see an expanded role as Achane's top backup, while rookie Chris Brooks is on hand to provide depth as Miami's No. 3 back.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Questionable for Week 17

    Mostert (knee/ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest at Baltimore, Travis Wingfield of the Dolphins' official site reports. Mostert has been tending to knee and ankle issues since Week 11 prep, but he's been able to suit up in each of the last six games, a span in which he turned 100 carries into 407 yards and seven touchdowns and hauled in six of eight targets for 24 yards and another score. He's been able to handle double-digit rushes on each occasion, and coach Mike McDaniel said Friday that Mostert "should be good" to play this weekend, per Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald. As a result, Mostert will handle his typical workload Sunday as long as he's not included among the Dolphins' inactives when they're posted approximately 90 minutes before a 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Not practicing Thursday

    Mostert (ankle/knee) remained sidelined at practice Thursday, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Heraldreports. Mostert, who also didn't participate in Wednesday's session, now has one more chance to practice ahead of Sunday's game against the Ravens. Per Oyefusi, the running back is expected to be available this weekend, but unless Mostert practices fully Friday, there's a decent chance he ends up with a Week 17 injury designation.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Expected to play through injuries

    Running backs coach Eric Studesville said Thursday he expects Mostert (ankle/knee) to suit up for Sunday's road matchup against the Ravens, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports. Mostert was sidelined at practice Wednesday due to ankle and knee issues, but as Jackson notes, the veteran back has played through lingering injuries all season and still appeared in all 15 games for Miami. It's worth noting, however, that Mostert played a season-low 19 offensive snaps during last week's win over the Cowboys, with coach Mike McDaniel noting that a decision to sit him after two third-quarter snaps was made due to pain management. It wouldn't be surprising to see Mostert continue to get rest at practice with a key matchup against Baltimore on deck Sunday. De'Von Achane (toe) and Jeff Wilson would be in line for larger workloads if Mostert's reps have to be capped in Week 17.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Sidelined at practice Wednesday

    Mostert (ankle) wasn't spotted at Wednesday's practice, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports. Mostert was limited to a season-low 19 snaps in this past Sunday's 22-20 win over the Cowboys while managing the ankle issue. Though Mostert is off the field to begin Week 17 prep, head coach Mike McDaniel expects the running back to be available Sunday in Baltimore, even with few or no practice reps leading up to the game.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Likely to play through ankle injury

    Mostert is dealing with an ankle injury, but head coach Mike McDaniel said Wednesday that he isn't concerned about the running back's availability for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports. Mostert has dealt with various lower-body injuries in recent weeks, with the 31-year-old having been listed with knee, shin and ankle issues on Miami injury reports. Per Daniel Oyefusi of The Miami Herald, Mostert will likely have his practice reps monitored during the week, but he should be capable of playing Sunday even with limited practice reps. Mostert played a season-low 19 snaps in last week's win over Dallas, and if the trend of a decreased workload continues for him in Week 17, it could lead to more opportunities for De'Von Achane and Jeff Wilson out of the backfield.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Plays season-low 19 snaps

    Mostert (shin) played a season-low 19 snaps in a Week 16 win over the Cowboys, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports. David Furones of the Sun Sentinel indicated that the coaching staff made the call to hold him out. "Raheem wanted to go in the game," coach Mike McDaniel said. "It was more that we could tell it was pretty painful at the time." Mostert briefly returned in the second half, but the Dolphins ultimately decided after two third-quarter snaps that his day was done. If the issue limits him further in a huge Week 17 clash with the Ravens that could determine the top seed in the AFC, De'Von Achane and Jeff Wilson would see bigger workloads.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Scores league-leading 21st TD

    Mostert (ankle/knee) had 11 carries for 46 yards and caught his only target for a four-yard touchdown in Sunday's 22-20 win over the Cowboys. Mostert's short score at the end of the first half wound up being Miami's only touchdown as the juggernaut offense uncharacteristically struggled in the red zone against Dallas. It was the veteran tailback's 21st touchdown of the season, temporarily putting him ahead of Christian McCaffrey for the league lead, with the latter still having yet to play in Week 16. Mostert ceded seven carries to De'Von Achane (7-24-0), but the former is the preferred fantasy option heading into next Sunday's tilt against Baltimore.
