  • Salvon Ahmed, Terron Armstead Active For Week 4

    Headshot for Salvon Ahmed

    Miami Dolphins running back Salvon Ahmed (groin) and left tackle Terron Armstead (back, ankle, or knee) are active for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills. Both players had been listed as questionable. Ahmed missed Week 3 and seemingly lost his backup job to De'Von Achane. On the other hand, Armstead is suiting up for a second consecutive game and will provide key protection for Tua Tagovailoa, Raheem Mostert, and Achane.

  • Salvon Ahmed "Progressing"

    Headshot for Salvon Ahmed

    Miami Dolphins running back Salvon Ahmed (groin) is "progressing," according to head coach Mike McDaniel. The Dolphins plan on putting Ahmed through some drills at practice on Wednesday to see how he responds. He'll likely be listed as limited on the official injury report, but it's good news for the 24-year-old after he was inactive for the record-breaking Week 3 win over the Denver Broncos on Sunday. After rookie De'Von Achane broke out to the tune of four touchdowns in the 70-20 win, Ahmed will surely be No. 3 on the RB totem pole if he's able to play this weekend in a divisional matchup against the Buffalo Bills. As long as Achane and Raheem Mostert are healthy, Ahmed is off the fantasy radar.

  • Salvon Ahmed Officially Inactive Sunday

    Headshot for Salvon Ahmed

    Miami Dolphins running back Salvon Ahmed (groin) is officially inactive for Week 3 versus the Denver Broncos. This comes as no surprise after the Dolphins listed him as doubtful heading into the weekend. Rookie De'Von Achane will operate as the No. 2 option behind Raheem Mostert but isn't a viable fantasy starter.

  • Salvon Ahmed Doubtful For Week 3 Against Denver

    Headshot for Salvon Ahmed

    Miami Dolphins running back Salvon Ahmed (groin) has been listed as doubtful for Sunday's Week 3 game against the Denver Broncos. The fourth-year running back injured his groin during the Week 2 win over the New England Patriots and didn't log a practice this week. He has been serving as starting running back Raheem Mostert's backup so far this season but if he doesn't end up playing, which is highly likely, then that role would go to rookie De'Von Achane. Ahmed hasn't seen much action (six carries for 24 yards, three catches for 28 yards) while working as the backup but Achane, who is a more dynamic player, would likely see more volume in that role on Sunday.

  • Salvon Ahmed Misses Another Practice

    Headshot for Salvon Ahmed

    Miami Dolphins running back Salvon Ahmed (groin) missed a second straight day of practice on Thursday. Ahmed is trending in the wrong direction to play in the Week 3 contest at home against the Denver Broncos after he suffered a groin injury in the Week 2 Sunday night win over the New England Patriots. Raheem Mostert ran for over 100 yards and two touchdowns and is the clear lead back in Miami, but if Ahmed misses this Sunday's game, rookie De'Von Achane would be in line for a bigger role as Mostert's primary backup. Jeff Wilson Jr. (abdomen) remains on Injured Reserve and will be forced to miss at least two more games. Ahmed has only six carries for 24 yards and three catches for 28 yards in two games so far in 2023.

  • Salvon Ahmed Totals 11 Yards In Win

    Headshot for Salvon Ahmed

    Miami Dolphins running back Salvon Ahmed rushed three times for 11 yards and failed to catch any of his three targets in the 36-34 win over the Los Angeles Chargers. The 24-year-old running back served as Raheem Mostert's backup since De'Von Achane (healthy inactive) and Jeff Wilson (ribs/finger) were out of action. Obviously, he didn't produce fantasy-relevant numbers and won't be worth consideration in fantasy lineups in Week 2, but he'll remain on the fantasy radar as long as he's the primary backup in Miami.

  • Salvon Ahmed Breaks Off 42-Yard Rush In Loss

    Headshot for Salvon Ahmed

    Miami Dolphins running back Salvon Ahmed rushed four times for 43 yards during Saturday's preseason finale versus the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also hauled in a five-yard reception. Ahmed's best play was an impressive 42-yard run that accounted for the vast majority of his total production. This offseason, he has shown a tendency to offer spurts of burst out of the backfield, which could earn him a spot on the Dolphins' roster as a change-of-pace back. However, he's unlikely to carve out a significant role and therefore can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

  • Salvon Ahmed Totals 131 Scrimmage Yards, Scores Touchdown Saturday

    Headshot for Salvon Ahmed

    Miami Dolphins running back Salvon Ahmed rushed 12 times for 99 yards during Saturday's win over the Houston Texans. He also led the team with four receptions while adding 32 yards and one touchdown through the air. Overall, it was an impressive showing from the 24-year-old as he looks to secure a depth spot on the 53-man roster. He demonstrated his speed on several plays, including a 65-yard gain. Despite a strong postseason, Ahmed's role on the depth chart will prevent him from having meaningful fantasy production unless several injuries occur ahead of him.
