Miami Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (knee) said his injured knee is close to 100 percent. He has indicated that he hopes to be ready for the start of training camp.
Fantasy Spin: Mostert may be limited during the early part of camp but should be ready for Week 1. He will be part of a committee at running back but should still see a good amount of touches each game. He can be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues.
Miami Dolphins running back Raheem Mostert (knee) said on his Twitter account on Wednesday that his rehab is going well and that he is close to 100%. Mostert hasn't been taking part in Miami's offseason workouts, but there's a chance that he'll be ready to go in late July for the start of training camp. The 30-year-old injured his left knee in the season opener last year with the San Francisco 49ers and didn't play another game all season. He was also limited to just eight games in 2020 due to injury and is a pretty big injury risk. Until Mostert proves he's back to full health, he's nothing more than an RB4/5 in much deeper leagues, and he'll be competing for backfield work in Miami with Chase Edmonds and Sony Michel.
Miami Dolphins running back Raheem Mostert (knee) agreed to a one-year, $3.125 million contract in March after spending his previous six seasons in San Francisco. During Mostert's time in the Bay Area, he accumulated 1,610 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns and was a hit-or-miss fantasy option for years. However, with the deal, he will follow new Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel, who served as the 49ers run game and offensive coordinator since 2017. The 30-year-old believes his familiarity with the offense will help him this season. Still, with Mostert working his way back from a season-ending knee injury in September, he'll also need to battle Chase Edmonds, Sony Michel, and Myles Gaskin for touches. As a result, the veteran's outlook isn't as bright, although he may have a few sufficient fantasy performances during the 2022-23 campaign.
Miami Dolphins running back Raheem Mostert (knee) is expected to be able to suit up to begin the season. Although, head coach Mike McDaniel mentioned that the organization isn't going to rush it. Mostert suffered a knee injury in September and is still recovering from it. Chase Edmonds figures to be the primary back, but that might not last too long. Myles Gaskin, Sony Michel, and Mostert should be in the mix as well. This sounds like a headache for fantasy managers heading into the season.
Miami Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert (knee) expects to play in Week 1, but head coach Mike McDaniel told reporters Tuesday, May 17, that '(the Dolphins) are not going to rush it.' 'He's come too far to have a setback. He's diligently working day in, day out. When he's ready he'll be on the field,' McDaniel added.
Fantasy Spin: McDaniel and Mostert are quite familiar with each other, as the two began working with each other in 2017 with the San Francisco 49ers. Mostert should be considered the odds-on favorite to work in tandem with Chase Edmonds if he is ready for the opener, although Sony Michel could easily make a strong case to be the primary early-down back with a strong camp. Myles Gaskin also has a chance, but the odds are stacked against him considering Miami added three veterans at his position this offseason.
Miami Dolphins RBs Chase Edmonds, Myles Gaskin, Raheem Mostert, Salvon Ahmed and Sony Michel will be involved in a 'creative competition,' according to assistant head coach/running backs coach Eric Studesville. 'You create a competitive environment and you let those guys go sort it out because that's how it's going to happen,' Studesville said. 'They're going to sort it out as to who contributes and where and how and how much.'
Fantasy Spin: This is going to be a tough situation to deal with in your fantasy draft because anyone could wind up winning. On the other side of the coin, any of them could be cut. Edmonds and Gaskin are RB3s, but Mostert has shown game-breaking ability when his body isn't breaking down.
The Miami Dolphins signed former San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert to a one-year deal worth $3.125 million, according to his agent. Mostert will reunite with head coach Mike McDaniel in South Beach. Miami's backfield is now quite crowded with the offseason additions of Mostert and Chase Edmonds, alongside Myles Gaskin. The 29-year-old Mostert injured his knee in Week 1 of last year and had surgery to fix the cartilage, so he'll need to prove he's healthy before the Dolphins give him a significant role in their backfield. Mostert has been limited to just nine games due to injuries the last two years in San Francisco, so fantasy managers will be taking a wait-and-see approach with him in 2022, especially in this crowded backfield.
Free-agent RB Raheem Mostert (49ers) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Miami Dolphins Wednesday, March 16, worth $3.125 million.
Fantasy Spin: Mostert is familiar with head coach Mike McDaniel's offense and likely will share playing time with Chase Edmonds in 2022. He should be involved in the passing game and can be a possible flex option in fantasy leagues.
San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert (knee) is making a full recovery and will be ready to play this season, according to his agent, Brett Tessler. Mostert underwent tests this week in Dallas with Dr. Dan Cooper after suffering a cartilage injury in his knee early in 2021. He played in just one game last year before going down, carrying the ball only two times for 20 yards in the season-opener. The 29-year-old will become a free agent next week, but most teams may be hesitant to sign him after he's played in only nine games in the last two years because of injuries. Rookie Elijah Mitchell stepped up after Mostert's injury and became the true workhorse back, so it's unclear exactly what Mostert's role would be if he re-signs with the 49ers.
The San Francisco 49ers have shown interest in re-signing veteran running back Raheem Mostert, according to his agent, Brett Tessler. Mostert is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent at the beginning of the new league year next month. The 29-year-old played four snaps in the season-opener last year before suffering a knee injury that required season-ending surgery. Part of Mostert's cartilage was damaged enough to leave a quarter-sized hole that needed to be fixed. He led the team in rushing with 772 yards and eight touchdowns on 137 carries in 2019, but he played in only eight games in 2020 due to an MCL sprain and two high ankle sprains. Because of his injury history, re-signing with the Niners may be his best move. But if he returns, he could be the No. 2 back behind Elijah Mitchell, who impressed in his rookie season.
San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent RB Raheem Mostert has been informed that the 49ers are interested in re-signing him, according to his agent.
Fantasy Spin: The 49ers likely will use Elijah Mitchell as their starter next season, but Mostert could have a decent role in the offense if he returns to the 49ers. He should have some fantasy value no matter where he plays in 2022.
San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent RB Raheem Mostert could be a possible target for the Miami Dolphins during free agency because he has played for head coach Mike McDaniel over the last few seasons, in the opinion of The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson.
Fantasy Spin: Mostert missed most of the season because of injury and probably will have to find a new team since Elijah Mitchell has earned the starting job for the 49ers. The Dolphins have used multiple running backs over the last few years, so Mostert could see most of the work if he joins Miami. He would be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back if he signs with the Dolphins.
San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (knee) and FB Josh Hokit were activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Jan. 18. Mostert returns to the Reserve/Injured list, and Hokit remains on the practice squad.
