Missed last week with knee injury #Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel tells reporters that Devon Achane will return to play this week against the #Commanders. (Ian Rapoport on X) FF Today's Take: Achane missed Week 12 with his knee injury. It's likely the Dolphins will be cautious with him as he missed multiple games with a knee issue earlier this year. He'll slot in behind Raheem Mostert but likely ahead of Jeff Wilson who loses his fantasy value as a result.
Seemingly sat out Black Friday game vs. NYJ as a precaution Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel said RB Devon Achane being inactive vs. Jets was due to wanting full confidence in his health & a short week vs. physical opponent. Better chance for Achane with more time ahead of Sunday's game at Commanders. Right now, availability TBD. (Adam Beasley on Twitter) FF Today's Take: McDaniel cited the short week as something that played a major role in holding Achane out, although the quality of the opponent likely proved to be the determining factor. There is a decent chance Miami will not need Achane next week either against the Commanders, but he will be two weeks removed from what appeared to be a minor injury by that point and two months removed from the initial injury. Fantasy managers should not hesitate getting him back into their lineups as a RB2 with serious RB1 upside.
