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.

Lofty Expectations For Saquon Barkley With The Eagles

Wednesday, July 3, 6:07 PM

The Philadelphia Eagles have a new offensive coordinator this year in Kellen Moore and will have a new bell-cow running back in Saquon Barkley. It's a big weapon to add to an offense that already includes one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in the league in Jalen Hurts. The Eagles could utilize their tight ends more in 2024 in Moore's scheme as well. ESPN's Jeremy Fowler has talked to scouts that believe Barkley could see a similar boost that Christian McCaffrey had when he went to the San Francisco 49ers. Barkley is heading to a Philadelphia offense that has never had this kind of supporting cast around him. Injuries have been a concern with the 27-year-old, but if he stays healthy in his first year with the Eagles, Barkley's upside at the RB position is as high as any in the league as a strong RB1 target.
