Jeff Wilson Jr. Has Six Touches In Blowout Loss

Monday, January 1, 2:57 PM

Miami Dolphins running back Jeff Wilson Jr. played a season-high 49 percent of the offensive snaps with Raheem Mostert (ankle, knee) out in the ugly 56-19 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, but he had just three carries for 21 yards and caught three of his four targets for 13 yards. Meanwhile, rookie running back De'Von Achane served as Miami's lead back with 18 total touches for 137 scrimmage yards and a touchdown through the air. The Dolphins aren't going to be resting players in a crucial Week 18 contest against the Buffalo Bills that will decide the winner of the AFC East. Even if Mostert misses his second straight game with multiple injuries, Wilson will most likely operate well behind Achane in Miami's backfield, making him no more than an RB3/flex option in deep PPR formats.

Roschon Johnson News

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.
