Mostert rushed 20 times for 94 yards and two touchdowns while failing to catch his only target in Friday's 34-13 win over the Jets.
With De'Von Achane (knee) inactive for the fifth time in the last six games, Mostert handled 20 of Miami's 33 carries by running backs. He was quiet for most of the game but got going late after New York's defense wore down. Mostert scored from 13 yards out in the fourth quarter, giving him sole possession of the league lead with 12 rushing touchdowns, then bolstered that total with a 34-yard touchdown two drives later. Achane was close to suiting up for Friday's game, so he'll likely be available to split carries with Mostert against the Commanders in Week 13.

Mostert is expected to serve as the Dolphins' clear lead back Friday against the Jets while De'Von Achane (knee) is inactive for the contest.
In the three games before Achane landed on injured reserve Oct. 11, he and Mostert had been splitting work out of the backfield. Mostert proceeded to see more than 50 percent of the snaps on offense and averaged 13.8 touches while Achane was sidelined over the subsequent four contests, and he then handled a 78 percent snap share and 22 carries - both season highs - with Achane being limited to just three snaps in his return to action in this past Sunday's win over Las Vegas. With Achane back on the sideline for Week 12 and with another running back in Salvon Ahmed (foot) ruled out for the season, Jeff Wilson should step in as the Dolphins' No. 2 option after being inactive last week. Mostert still appears likely to dominate the backfield work for as long as Friday's contest remains competitive.
Mostert (ankle/knee) doesn't carry an injury designation for Friday's game against the Jets, Travis Wingfield of the Dolphins' official site reports.
Though Mostert is managing ankle and knee issues and was listed as limited on Thursday's practice estimate, he'll be available for Friday's contest. Meanwhile, De'Von Achane (knee) is listed as questionable and if he's unavailable versus New York, Jeff Wilson and Darrynton Evans would be in line to work behind Mostert in Miami's Week 12 backfield.
Mostert (ankle/knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
Mostert has appeared on both of the Dolphins' first two Week 12 practice reports as a limited participant due to the pair of injuries, but the team seems to be capping his reps as a matter of load management rather than as a result of any concern about his availability for Friday's game against the Jets. Instead, the status of fellow running back De'Von Achane (knee) -- who was a limited practice participant Wednesday -- appears to be more up in the air than Mostert's as Friday's game approaches. If Achane isn't able to play Friday, Jeff Wilson or Salvon Ahmed would likely serve as the top understudy to Mostert, who carried a season-high 22 times in this past Sunday's win over the Raiders.
Mostert (ankle/knee) was listed as limited on Tuesday's estimated practice report, Travis Wingfield of the Dolphins' official site reports.
Like fellow running back De'Von Achane (knee), Mostert had a cap on his reps at Tuesday's walkthrough. However, Mostert is dealing with the ankle and knee injuries that limited during the entirety of Week 11 prep, which didn't stop him from logging 86 percent of snaps en route to 23 touches for 93 yards from scrimmage this past Sunday against the Raiders. In that same contest, Achane departed early with an injury to the same knee that forced an IR stint prior to his recent return to action. There's a chance Achane will be able to play Friday at the Jets, but if he's inhibited or out and Mostert is able to suit up again, the latter likely will be the Dolphins' lead RB in Week 12.
Mostert rushed 22 times for 86 yards and brought in one of two targets for seven yards in the Dolphins' 20-13 win over the Raiders on Sunday.
Mostert took on what was likely a higher workload than expected when De'Von Achane exited in the first quarter with a knee injury. The combination of the rookie's absence beginning in the second quarter, the inactive status of Jeff Wilson and a favorable game script conspired to afford Mostert his highest workload of the season. Mostert also logged his first reception since Week 7, but with head coach Mike McDaniel saying after the game Achane's exit was merely precautionary after he landed on his recently injured knee, Mostert could be back to a more abbreviated touch count in a Week 12 road matchup against the Jets on Friday afternoon.
Mostert (ankle/knee) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Raiders after being limited in practice this week, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Mostert is thus slated to play through his ankle and knee issues this weekend, and it looks like he'll probably be joined in Miami's Week 11 backfield by De'Von Achane (knee), who the Dolphins list as questionable, but is trending toward being activated from IR ahead of Sunday's contest. If that occurs, Achane would figure to work in some form of time share with Mostert, though even in that context both players would merit fantasy lineup consideration.
Mostert (ankle/knee) was a limited practice participant Thursday, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.
Despite having the benefit of a Week 10 bye, Mostert's reps are still being managed heading into Sunday's matchup with the Raiders while he tends to a pair of injuries. Mostert has now been limited in both of the Dolphins' first two practices, but if he upgrades to full activity Friday, he should be cleared to enter the weekend without a designation. If available Sunday, Mostert will presumably handle his usual starting role, though he could cede more snaps and touches than he had in previous weeks with De'Von Achane (knee) seemingly tracking toward a return from injured reserve this week.
Mostert (ankle/knee) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
The same goes for fellow running back De'Von Achane, who was designated to return from injured reserve after missing four games with a knee injury. There's a better-than-decent chance the Dolphins have both Achane and Mostert available after a Week 10 bye, in which case the two running backs would figure to split work Sunday against the Raiders. They made it work for fantasy managers earlier this year, but Mostert's production slipped the past month even with Achane out of the lineup, in part because Miami's offense slowed down overall. A home matchup with Las Vegas certainly offers a nice opportunity for Tua Tagovailoa and Co. to get back on track.
