2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
With Mike McDaniel taking over as head coach after spending the past five years in San Francisco, it shouldn't be surprising that the Miami backfield looks like a complete nightmare for fantasy purposes. The fantasy football graveyard is littered with the broken dreams of managers who've tried to predict where that backfield was headed. The 49ers consistently rostered numerous viable options and many times the players who consensus thought would lead the backfields end up being completely worthless, and vice versa.

The Dolphins backfield looks a lot like those situations headed into 2022, with Chase Edmonds, Raheem Mostert, Sony Michel, and Myles Gaskin all having a realistic chance of scoring significant fantasy points. Certainly not all of them will be able to do it, but like what we saw in San Francisco, this could easily be a situation where the team rotates around, utilizing the "hot hand" approach and causing headaches for those who've invested draft picks in any of these players.

If we're going to take a stab at predicting the backfield, it makes sense to start with the team's financial investment in each player. The Dolphins had already rostered Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed, but they brought in Mostert and Michel on relatively team-friendly deals while giving Edmonds by far the biggest contract in the backfield. While that alone doesn't mean that Edmonds will step in as a bell cow back in 2022, it likely means that the coaches would need to see someone else step up in a big way to supplant him as the team's top running back.

Edmonds spent the first three years of his NFL career primarily playing a complementary role to David Johnson and then Kenyan Drake in Arizona. He never reached 100 rushing attempts or 500 yards on the ground until 2021 when those two backs were gone. While the Cardinals brought in James Conner who then far out-scored Edmonds, it's worth noting that Edmonds played in just 12 games and much of the out-scoring that happened was due to role, as Conner was the team's red zone back, which allowed him to score a ton of touchdowns in a very good offense. What those fantasy totals don't tell you is that Edmonds was actually quite a bit more efficient than Conner as he averaged nearly a yard and a half more per carry.

Edmonds' best asset is not his between-the-tackles running but rather his ability in the passing game, where he's caught 96 passes over his past two seasons. He delivered these totals despite playing with one of the league's most elusive runners at quarterback, which rarely leads to many pass catching opportunities for running backs. A move to Miami and a chance to play with a more traditional pocket passer in Tagovailoa should actually allow Edmonds to have even more opportunities to make plays in the passing game, which should give him the inside edge to be the top-scoring back in Miami. Still, fantasy owners should go into the season expecting some frustration from Edmonds as it would not be surprising to see him lead the backfield in touches only for some other back to come in and steal some of his touchdowns.

News From The Past 90 Days
Dolphins acquire Jeff Wilson
Ship out Chase Edmonds to Denver in another deadline deal
By: Doug Orth | Tue Nov 1, 6:00 pm

Miami Dolphins
Compensation update: 49ers are trading RB Jeff Wilson to the Dolphins for a 2023 5th-round pick, per source. (ESPN - Adam Schefter)

FFToday's Take: With Miami trading Chase Edmonds to the Broncos in the Bradley Chubb deal earlier in the afternoon, Wilson slots in as the primary backup to injury-prone Raheem Mostert. It also gives Miami a physical runner that should have no problem contributing immediately since HC Mike McDaniel was the 49ers' offensive coordinator last season. Wilson isn't exactly a must-own handcuff, but this trade and Mostert's injury history suggest that he will see some starts later in the season.
