Thursday update: Mostert is officially questionable after getting a limited practice in on Thursday. With this game on Saturday, you can probably wait for inactives before deciding if you should start him in fantasy.
Thursday update: Mostert was able to return to practice on Thursday and told reporters his status would probably come down to a decision on Saturday.
Jeff Wilson said no decision yet on if he can play Saturday. He and medical staff will decide Saturday. Some discomfort in hip but has been improvement— Barry Jackson (@flasportsbuzz) December 15, 2022
Thursday update: Mostert wasn’t able to practice on Wednesday, missing his second practice in a row as the Dolphins get ready for their Saturday matchup in Buffalo. Raheem Mostert is looking like he will be the lead back this week.
Tuesday Update: The Dolphins play on Saturday night this coming weekend, so the practice week is a little moved up. The team didn’t practice officially on Tuesday, but the estimation is that if they had, running back Jeff Wilson Jr. would not have practiced.

The Miami Dolphins have suddenly lost two straight games ahead of a massive Week 15 showdown against the Buffalo Bills. To add to their problems, Miami might not have running back Jeff Wilson Jr. available for the contest. Wilson Jr. is considered day-to-day with a hip injury but his status for Saturday’s game is uncertain.
Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel says RB Jeff Wilson Jr. hip injury was “more positive than worse-case scenario could have been… Crisis was averted.” Wilson is day-to-day, status for Sat vs Bills uncertain as of now.— Cameron Wolfe (@CameronWolfe) December 12, 2022
Fantasy football implications for Week 15
Wilson Jr, has been splitting carries with Raheem Mostert since arriving in Miami. He does have more value than Mostert as a receiver, although he has less of an impact that the Dolphins dynamic receiving duo in that area.
If Wilson Jr. were to miss time, Mostert would be the primary running back for Miami. Salvon Ahmed would be the backup, as he got some carries in Week 14 against the Chargers. We’ll get a better read on Wilson Jr.’s status as the practice reports come through during the week.
