The No. 6 Miami Dolphins take on the No. 3 Kansas City Chiefs in the Wild Card Round of the 2024 NFL Playoffs at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday night. The Dolphins limp into the postseason — both in the standings and on the injury report. RB Raheem Mostert, who has had a renaissance season for Miami, missed Week 18 due to lower-body injuries. We’re updating you on Mostert’s status for Saturday night’s contest.

2024 NFL Playoff injury report

Update — Mostert is officially active.

Raheem Mostert impact

Mostert enters this game listed as questionable to play. He missed the last two weeks of the regular season due to injury. Mostert led all running backs in touchdowns with 18 rushing and another three receiving. The Dolphins leaned on the veteran all season long and lost the final two games of the regular season to fall down to the 6-seed. Mostert will be key in this matchup given the cold weather temps in Kansas City. It’s expected to feel well below 0 degrees at Arrowhead this evening. The running game will be key and having both Mostert and rookie De’Von Achane will be huge.

NFL DFS analysis

If Mostert is active, he’s a great GPP option on DraftKings. At $6,700, Mostert’s price point is a bit high. There’s always a risk of re-injury in this type of situation. Though, Mostert has had plenty of time to recover over the past few weeks going into this game. If Mostert is active and 100%, don’t be surprised if a lot of lineups pivot onto him in this spot. The Chiefs have a tough defense but the cold will impact everyone. Mostert was a touchdown machine and if the Dolphins get into the red zone, there’s a good chance he’ll score. If active, expect Mostert to see around 10-15 touches (if not more considering Achane is playing in his first playoff game).
