3. RB Raheem Mostert, Miami Dolphins
Mostert continues to establish himself as the top running back in Miami. On Sunday, he led the Dolphins with 18 carries for 121 yards and a touchdown, while Chase Edmonds had only one carry for one yard. In addition, Mostert played 46 offensive snaps, while Edmonds played only 10 offensive snaps. This is a continuation of a recent trend. In Week 4, Mostert received 15 carries, while Edmonds only received five carries.
Mostert is a talented running back with elite speed. Since 2017, Mostert is averaging 5.5 yards per carry, which is third among all NFL running backs during that span (minimum 150 rushing attempts). In 2020, he reached a speed of 23.09 miles per hour on an 80-yard rushing touchdown. It is the second-fastest play since the statistic started being tracked in 2016, per NFL Next Gen Stats. Health has always been the biggest problem for Mostert. He has missed 24 games over the last two seasons. Fortunately, he has been able to stay off the injury report this season.
With an increased workload, Mostert is locked in as an RB2 in most leagues.
