The Miami Dolphins are taking on the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2 of the 2022 NFL season. The Dolphins rolled to a Week 1 divisional win over the New England Patriots. Miami’s backfield was led by Chase Edmonds, who had 12 carries for 25 yards. He added four receptions for 40 yards in the passing game. Despite this production, last week’s backup, Raheem Mostert, got the start this week against the Ravens. Third-string running back Myles Gaskin was ruled inactive.

Dolphins RB usage in Week 2 vs. Ravens

Miami had been down most of the game against Baltimore. Even so, the running back carries weren't even close this week. Mostert got the start and has 11 carries for 51 yards and caught all three of his targets for 28 more yards. Edmonds had 5 carries for 33 yards but popped off a big 28-yard run late to get to that total. He caught one of his three targets for eight yards.
