Raheem Mostert Receives One-Year Extension

Friday, March 29, 4:08 PM

Miami Dolphins running back Raheem Mostert is signing a one-year contract extension, according to his agent Brett Tessler. 2024 was originally the last year of his deal, but the new contract extends his deal into the 2025 campaign. Mostert, who turns 32 years old in April, has enjoyed his best seasons as a pro over the last two seasons in South Beach. Since joining the team in 2022, Mostert has rushed 390 times for 1,903 yards and 21 touchdowns. He was named to his first Pro Bowl after scoring 21 total touchdowns in 2023. Although De'Von Achane is younger and could be the lead back for Mike McDaniel in 2024, the team clearly still values Mostert, so he will remain on the fantasy radar moving forward.

Jahmyr Gibbs Could Have Bigger Role In 2024

Tuesday, May 14, 9:22 PM

Detroit Lions general manager Brad Holmes said this week on The Rich Eisen Show that second-year running back Jahmyr Gibbs could have an even bigger role in 2024. "I definitely would expect him to see more of a load, but David Montgomery will still be here too," Holmes said. "Dan and I love that 1-2 punch of him and David." The former first-round pick in 2023 was third among running backs with 5.2 yards per carry in his rookie campaign, so fantasy managers that were already fond of Gibbs' stock in a rising Lions offense will be pleased that he could be even more valuable as an RB1 in 2024. Not only should the 22-year-old former Alabama back see more carries, but he should also be more involved in the passing attack, where he can really excel with yards after the catch in open space. Only seven RBs saw more targets than Gibbs' 71 in 2023.
