Miami Dolphins fans are freaking out because they think second-year running back De’Von Achane reported to training looking buff, swole and jacked.


Achane is one of the fastest players in the NFL.


Achane had 7.8 yards per rush as a rookie. That was #1 in the NFL among running backs with a minimum of 100 attempts, far ahead of Christian McCaffrey’s 5.4.


Ever since Mike McDaniel took over as head coach and Tyreek Hill joined the roster ahead of the 2022 NFL season, the Miami Dolphins have been a hotbed for fantasy football production. Last year, Miami had a top-10 fantasy QB, two top-24 fantasy RBs, a top-three fantasy WR, and another top-35 fantasy WR.


But Achane is also much, much stronger than his 5-foot-9, 188-pound frame might suggest.


After De’Von Achane posted 233 total yards and four touchdowns in Week 3 of his rookie campaign, he became the hottest name in fantasy football — yet veteran Raheem Mostert continued to lead the backfield en route to an RB2 season in half-PPR formats. Needless to say, this backfield will draw plenty of interest in 2024, so it’s time to take an early peek at the potential touch distribution.


Is Achane or Mostert the starting running back for Miami? Where does rookie Jaylen Wright fit in? Let’s dive in!
