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.

Josh Jacobs Looking To Be More Involved As A Receiver

Wednesday, July 10, 4:37 PM

Green Bay Packers running back Josh Jacobs has hauled in 197 receptions since entering the NFL in 2019, and heading into his first year with Matt LaFleur, he wants to be heavily targeted in the passing game. "I was talking to (LaFleur) about that actually and I was telling him I feel like I want to catch it a little bit more," Jacobs said. "I feel like I didn't get to show that as much as I would have liked. So, that's definitely something in the conversations we had." The former first-round pick has two 50-plus catch seasons on his resume, and he was a solid receiver out of the backfield in college, so it wouldn't be a surprise if he gets his wish. Former Packers running back Aaron Jones earned 311 targets in five seasons with LaFleur, the fifth-most among all ball carriers during that span. Jacobs is being drafted as a low-end RB1 or high-end RB2, which could prove to be a discount in PPR formats.
