De'Von Achane A Non-Factor Against Chiefs

Monday, January 15, 11:49 AM

Miami Dolphins running back De'Von Achane wasn't able to break off any huge plays in the wild-card loss on Saturday night like he has throughout the regular season. The rookie back capped off his first season with a sub-par performance after registering nine yards on six carries and hauling in three of his six targets for 21 yards. His longest play of the night was an 11-yard catch-and-run where he showed off some elusiveness but ultimately wasn't able to find much room. After taking a backseat to Raheem Mostert for most of the season, Achane quickly became one of the hottest waiver-wire additions after displaying astounding explosiveness. He played his way into a lead role until he got hurt, so he'll likely receive more opportunities as the lead back next year. He'll probably be a higher fantasy draft pick next season than his counterpart in the backfield.

Matt Eberflus Lauds Roschon Johnson's Development

Tuesday, February 27, 4:26 PM

On the podium at the 2024 NFL Combine, Chicago Bears head coach Matt Eberflus said he "loves where Roschon Johnson is in his development." This was in response to a question about Johnson's potential prospects of being the team's lead back in 2024. The former Texas Longhorn rushed 81 times for 352 yards and two touchdowns and caught 34 passes for 209 yards in his rookie season after being selected in the fourth round of the 2023 NFL Draft. 25-year-old ball-carrier Khalil Herbert remains on the roster, while veteran D'Onta Foreman is a free agent. While Eberflus' comments are a good sign, it's far too early to project Johnson's potential workload. With a strong free agent and underrated rookie running back class available this offseason, the organization could easily add to its running back room.
