Dolphins RB Duo Shines in Week 3, Raises Questions for Week 4 Matchup
The Miami Dolphins’ running back duo of Raheem Mostert and De’Von Achane stole the show in Week 3, putting on a spectacular performance. Together, they racked up a staggering 285 rushing yards, hauled in 11 receptions for 90 yards receiving, and found the end zone an impressive eight times.
However, despite Mostert’s exceptional showing, experts are urging fantasy owners to consider selling the 31-year-old running back. Mostert has a history of injuries, which could potentially hinder his long-term productivity. On the other hand, the young and dynamic Achane is being labeled as a must-add on the waiver wire due to his explosiveness and potential for continued success.
As the Dolphins gear up for their Week 4 clash against the Buffalo Bills, all eyes are on the running back duo. Fans and fantasy owners alike are eagerly anticipating what they have in store for an encore performance.
According to projections, Mostert is anticipated to receive 14 carries, make three catches, accumulate 97 total yards, and find the end zone once. Meanwhile, Achane is expected to receive nine carries, make two catches, amass 62 total yards, and score 0.6 touchdowns.
Experts suggest that starting both Mostert and Achane in fantasy lineups is a viable option, but the return of Jeff Wilson from injury could complicate matters. Wilson’s presence may reduce the workload for both running backs, so monitoring his involvement in the offense is crucial.
In addition to the Dolphin’s running back duo, other notable matchups and statistics for Week 4 running backs are being discussed. Derrick Henry’s performance against an eight-man box, Jahmyr Gibbs’ explosive plays, and Tony Pollard’s projected high usage are all hot topics.
For those looking to bolster their fantasy rosters, waiver wire targets include Achane, Matt Breida, and Melvin Gordon. These players have the potential to see increased opportunities due to injuries and favorable matchups.
Another player worth considering is Kendre Miller, who is being recommended as a stash option in case Alvin Kamara suffers an injury.
Looking beyond traditional fantasy formats, the top daily fantasy sports (DFS) plays for Week 4 are highlighted. Zack Moss, who has a favorable matchup against the Rams, and Josh Jacobs, who could have a breakout game against a vulnerable Chargers defense, are among the recommended options.
