Happy with added backfield depth

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-05-08

Mostert said Tuesday he's "excited" to have rookie fourth-round pick Jaylen Wright join himself and De'Von Achane in Miami's backfield, 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. As he enters his age-32 seasons, Mostert and Achane are clearly the top dogs of the Dolphins' rushing game after both having accomplished extremely efficient seasons in 2023, likely leaving Wright to start out a as a third-stringer, with Jeff 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 typical for a No. 3 option. All three of Mostert, Achane and Wright boast atypical explosiveness, so it's possible that Mike McDaniel's scheme could manage to deploy each back relatively interchangeably.

Re-works deal with Miami

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-03-29

The Dolphins and Mostert have agreed to terms on a re-worked 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 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 TDs (18 rushing and three receiving). This coming season, Mostert is set to reprise his key role in a Miami backfield that also includes dynamic 2023 third-rounder De'Von Achane, as well as Jeff Wilson, Salvon Ahmed and Chris Brooks.

Shouldn't need ankle surgery

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-15

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.

Stymied in season-ending loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-13

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 as Kansas City expanded its lead. 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.

Suiting up Saturday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-13

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.

Gets questionable tag for Saturday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-11

Mostert (knee/ankle) is listed as questionable for Saturday's wild-card game in Kansas City, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Mostert missed the Dolphins' last two games of the regular season due to his lower-body injuries, but head coach Mike McDaniel expressed optimism Thursday about the running back's chances of playing in the postseason opener, per Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com. Even so, Mostert will be carrying a designation ahead of Saturday's 8 p.m. ET kickoff, after the Dolphins listed him as a limited participant on each of their three practice reports this week. When healthy this season, Mostert has served as the lead option out of the Miami backfield, but if available Saturday, he could have to settle for the smaller side of a timeshare with dynamic rookie De'Von Achane, who filled in capably as the No. 1 back over the past two weeks.

Listed as limited again

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-10

Mostert (knee/ankle) is listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's injury report, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

The Dolphins didn't practice Tuesday and held a walk-through Wednesday, allowing Mostert to get consecutive 'LP' tags without actually doing much. His participation Thursday should be more meaningful, and he told reporters Wednesday that he's feeling good but isn't sure what will happen for Saturday's game at Kansas City, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports. Mostert also mentioned that both his ankle and knee injuries are factors, with neither considered more concerning than the other, per Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post.

Opens week with limited listing

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-09

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.

Optimism for chances to play

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-08

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.
