Raheem Mostert Comes Back To Earth In Loss

Monday, October 2, 1:40 AM

Miami Dolphins running back Raheem Mostert handled seven rushing attempts for nine yards with a lost fumble and three receptions for an additional 36 yards in Sunday's 48-20 defeat to the Buffalo Bills. Mostert made a nifty 22-yard contested catch on a wheel route to invigorate a muted first half but coughed up the ball late in the second period. Week 4 was the first hiccup of the 31-year-old's campaign after setting the world on fire as fantasy's top scorer over its first three weeks. Though, Mostert was out-touched 11-10 by the burgeoning De'Von Achane on Sunday. Jeff Wilson Jr. (ribs) is eligible to return from injured reserve as early as Week 5, which could further complicate matters in Miami's backfield. For now, Mostert is a tentative RB2 starter for next Sunday versus a New York Giants defense that's been shredded on the ground through three games.

Jaleel McLaughlin Leads Backfield After Javonte Williams' Injury

Sunday, October 1, 10:36 PM

An injury to Denver Broncos running back Javonte Williams (hip) in the team's 31-28 come-from-behind victory over the Chicago Bears in Week 4 on Sunday allowed undrafted rookie Jaleel McLaughlin to have his biggest day as a professional. McLaughlin led the team with seven carries for 72 yards (10.3 yards per carry) and also caught all three of his targets for 32 yards and his second touchdown of the year. Samaje Perine had one fewer carry than McLaughlin, but he mustered only 12 yards on the ground. The 23-year-old's TD came on an 18-yard screen pass for the team's first score of the day. The Youngstown State product has probably already leapfrogged Perine on Denver's RB depth chart, and if Williams misses any time, McLaughlin will be in play as an RB3/flex for fantasy managers.
