  • Offseason In Review: Miami Dolphins

    Headshot for Devon Achane

    Following a busy offseason in 2022, the Dolphins didn’t take nearly as many swings in 2023. It’s hard to blame them. The front office didn’t have to make up for any mistakes from last spring, as the team’s major acquisitions (receiver Tyreek Hill and offensive tackle Terron Armstead) both proved to be worth the investment. […]

  • Jeff Wilson Jr. Expected To Return In Week 5

    Headshot for Jeff Wilson

    Miami Dolphins running back Jeff Wilson Jr. (finger, rib) was placed on the injured reserve on Thursday. The 27-year-old is dealing with multiple injuries that are going to force him to miss the first four weeks of the regular season. However, Wilson's agent expects Wilson to return ahead of the Week 5 matchup against the New York Giants. That is great news considering the team didn't offer much of a timetable for Wilson's return. The Dolphins might only be without Wilson for four games, which isn't too bad. In his absence, Raheem Mostert and rookie De'Von Achane (shoulder) are expected to have bigger roles in the offense.

  • Jeff Wilson Jr. Dealing With Multiple Injuries

    Headshot for Jeff Wilson

    Miami Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel said he wouldn't be surprised if running back Jeff Wilson Jr. (abdomen, finger) returned this year. "Was midsection injury compounded by some finger issues. We made the assessment he couldn't protect himself and couldn't be himself the way we know him to be. I wouldn't be surprised if he would make a return this season. We will let his body tell us," McDaniel said. The Dolphins placed Wilson on Injured Reserve, so he'll have to miss the first four games of the year, but McDaniel makes it sound like he could be out much longer. The 27-year-old's fantasy stock obviously takes a huge hit, while Raheem Mostert now becomes much more attractive, as does rookie De'Von Achane (shoulder).

  • Dolphins Place CB Jalen Ramsey, RB Jeff Wilson On IR

    Headshot for Jalen Ramsey

    Jalen Ramsey is not set to make his Dolphins debut for months. With the All-Pro cornerback in the team’s plans for 2023, he needed to be placed on the 53-man roster before an IR move could commence. The latter transaction will take place Thursday morning. Ramsey is now on IR, and running back Jeff Wilson […]

  • Dolphins Place Jeff Wilson Jr. On Injured Reserve

    Headshot for Jeff Wilson

    The Miami Dolphins placed running back Jeff Wilson Jr. (undisclosed) on Injured Reserve in a surprising move on Thursday. The move means that Wilson will be ineligible to play in the first four games of the season. Rookie De'Von Achane (shoulder) and Salvon Ahmed (head) should now have elevated roles in Miami's backfield behind starter Raheem Mostert to begin the season, although it's unclear if they'll even be ready for Week 1 against the Los Angeles Chargers. Mostert's ADP will surely go up for fantasy drafts this weekend, but he looks like a pretty excellent value now for those who already drafted him. Meanwhile, the 27-year-old Wilson is going to go undrafted now in most 12-team leagues.

  • Colts, Dolphins Continue Jonathan Taylor Trade Talks

    Headshot for Raheem Mostert

    7:09pm: Although this reported deadline looms in less than 24 hours, the Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson notes this should be considered a loose deadline. The actual trade deadline is Oct. 31. It would certainly be interesting to see how the Colts play this if they do not unload Taylor by Tuesday afternoon, but Jackson and ESPN’s […]

  • Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson Jr. Won't Play In Preseason Finale

    Headshot for Raheem Mostert

    Miami Dolphins running backs Raheem Mostert (undisclosed) and Jeff Wilson Jr. (undisclosed) are not expected to play in Saturday's preseason finale, according to David Furones of the Sun Sentinel. We know nothing about Mostert's injury and very little about Wilson's, other than the fact that he left practice early on Aug. 9 and hasn't played in a single preseason game. With rookie De'Von Achane (shoulder) also sidelined, players like Myles Gaskin, Salvon Ahmed, and Chris Brooks will all get a chance to show why they deserve a final roster spot.

  • Jeff Wilson Jr. The Most Valuable Dolphins RB?

    Headshot for Jeff Wilson

    Barring an unexpected acquisition of Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor by next Tuesday, running backs Jeff Wilson Jr., Raheem Mostert and rookie De'Von Achane will make up the Miami Dolphins' backfield to open the 2023 season. The Athletic's Jim Ayello writes it's impossible to know which of the threesome will emerge as the most valuable this year, but his guess would be Wilson. The 27-year-old averaged 4.7 yards per carry after his trade to Miami in 2022. Wilson and Mostert are both being drafted outside the top 150, according to Sleeper ADP. Because of the uncertainty in this committee backfield, fantasy managers are probably avoiding the situation if they can. All three backs should be considered RB4/flex options if everyone remains healthy.

  • Jeff Wilson Jr. Injured At Wednesday's Practice

    Headshot for Jeff Wilson

    Miami Dolphins running back Jeff Wilson Jr. (hand) suffered a hand injury during training camp practice on Wednesday. Wilson probably isn't going to play in Friday's preseason opener against the Atlanta Falcons, even if his injury isn't considered serious. The Dolphins are rolling with a committee backfield in 2023 between Raheem Mostert, Wilson and rookie De'Von Achane. A hip injury slowed Wilson down in the middle of his first year in Miami, but the team brought him back. Given his familiarity in head coach Mike McDaniel's system, the 27-year-old back should have a consistent role again in 2023. Wilson will have to hold off Achane this year, but fantasy managers should consider him to be the 1B to Mostert's 1A. View him as an RB4/flex in fantasy.

  • De'Von Achane Returns To Tuesday's Practice

    Headshot for Devon Achane

    Miami Dolphins rookie running back De'Von Achane (undisclosed) has returned to the practice field. The speedster only missed a couple of days of practice after sustaining the injury Saturday. The undersized 21-year-old is impressing coaches with his world-class speed, but he'll still have to work for touches in a crowded backfield. Veterans Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr. will have a role, and the team has been potentially linked to free agent Dalvin Cook. The rookie is likely to deliver big plays this season, making him worthy of a late-round flier in fantasy drafts.
