2023 Outlook
Depth Chart
While veterans Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson are likely to enter the season as the biggest parts of this Miami backfield committee, it's third-round NFL Draft pick Devon Achane who is really the most intriguing player from a fantasy standpoint.

Undersized at only 5'9" and under 190 lbs, Achane was an impressive all-purpose back in college. He rushed for over 1,100 yards with 11 touchdowns and caught 36 passes in his final collegiate season at Texas A&M. He then blazed in the testing process leading up to the draft, checking in with a 4.32-second forty-yard dash time. This running back archetype is exactly what the Dolphins have been acquiring clones of over the past two offseasons and there's an outside chance that the team will opt to move on from either Mostert or Wilson if they see enough from Achane during camp.

Achane will likely will start the season on the bench, but could be the player who possesses the most upside in the entire backfield. We've seen enough from Mostert and Wilson to know that both players are likely to cannibalize one another's touches while also being high injury risks. The Dolphins didn't really "feature" Mostert or Wilson in 2022, so they're obviously not sold on either of them being a true bell cow, which means that the opportunity is there for someone like Achane to impress and potentially become that guy.

We also know that head coach Mike McDaniel likes to rotate his backfield and keep players fresh, so there's a real possibility that Achane sees some playing time very early and he might be the team's best pass-catching weapon out of the backfield right away. Achane is the back with the lowest floor of this trio, but he's also the player who has the highest ceiling. If you're taking him as your RB4 or RB5, then you're likely solid enough at the position that you don't need him to be a starter right away. In that case, he's a great lottery ticket-type back who could hit big for you, but could also just fizzle out without costing you much of anything on draft day.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Devon Achane has decent chance to play in Week 13
Seemingly sat out Black Friday game vs. NYJ as a precaution
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 27, 7:40 pm

Miami Dolphins
Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel said RB Devon Achane being inactive vs. Jets was due to wanting full confidence in his health & a short week vs. physical opponent. Better chance for Achane with more time ahead of Sunday's game at Commanders. Right now, availability TBD. (Adam Beasley on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: McDaniel cited the short week as something that played a major role in holding Achane out, although the quality of the opponent likely proved to be the determining factor. There is a decent chance Miami will not need Achane next week either against the Commanders, but he will be two weeks removed from what appeared to be a minor injury by that point and two months removed from the initial injury. Fantasy managers should not hesitate getting him back into their lineups as a RB2 with serious RB1 upside.

Injury De'Von Achane nursing a knee injury
Did not play in fourth quarter in Week 5 after getting hurt
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 9, 3:40 pm

Miami Dolphins
Devon Achane is dealing with a knee injury. Mike McDaniel said a decision has not been made on Jeff Wilson yet. (Adam Beasley on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Beginning with his Week 3 breakout, Achane has been the highest-scoring player in all of fantasy football. Until we receive a report on the kind of injury he is dealing with, it is useless to speculate how much time he could miss - if any at all. Raheem Mostert would likely return to lead-back status if Achane has to miss some games, although Wilson should not be far away from a return off IR.

Injury Devon Achane expected to be Inactive Week 1
Raheem Mostert, Salvon Ahmed expected to handle RB work
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Sep 10, 9:20 am

Miami Dolphins
Just mentioned on @NFLGameDay: #Dolphins rookie RB Devon Achane is expected to be inactive today against the #Chargers. The third-round pick from Texas A&M missed time in camp with a shoulder injury and has some rust. Raheem Mostert and Salvon Ahmed will carry the load. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Dolphins backfield has been narrowed down to Mostert and Ahmed which makes Mostert a solid RB2 play this week in a high-total (51.5) game against the Chargers who gave up the 7th most fantasy to running backs last season in Half-PPR leagues.
