Inactives update: Mostert is officially OUT. De’Von Achane and Jeff Wilson should both have fantasy appeal this week, but Achane has huge upside.

Miami Dolphins running back Raheem Mostert is not expected to play in Week 17 against the Baltimore Ravens. Mostert has been dealing with ankle and knee injuries this week, and did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday. He was a limited practice participant on Friday.

Fantasy football analysis

If Mostert is out, which is expected, we can expect De’Von Achane to get the majority of carries on Sunday. The Dolphins will miss Mostert, but Achane has been excellent this season when healthy, averaging 8.1 yards per carry with nine TDs for the season. Achane is a must-start this week in fantasy.

NFL DFS analysis

Mostert comes in at $7,000 as a FLEX in daily fantasy at DraftKings Sportsbook. Since he is not expected to play, there are certainly better options at that price point this week.

Betting analysis

Mostert’s absence will certainly affect the Dolphins’ offense, but Achane has played the lead back role before and has not missed a beat. The Dolphins will still have a dominant rushing attack. Take a look at Achane’s rushing yard total and anytime TD prop bets at DraftKings Sportsbook.
