Miami Dolphins running back De’Von Achane will miss the next four weeks for the team after being placed on injured reserve with a knee injury. 

That leaves Miami with Raheem mostert, Salvon Ahmed and Jeff Wilson Jr. as potential options in the backfield in Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers. 

De'Von Achane injury status for Week 6 game vs. Carolina Panthers

Achane will not play against Carolina due to his knee injury. He has to miss four weeks since he’s been placed on IR. 

Best Miami Dolphins prop bet with De'Von Achane out for Week 6

Raheem Mostert anytime touchdown scorer

With Achane out, I’d expect the Dolphins to rely heavily on Mostert in this game since the team would need to active Wilson off of IR for him toi play. 

Mostert has a league-high seven rushing touchdowns this season, and he found the end zone in Week 5 against the New York Giants with Achane still playing. 

The Panthers are one of the worst defenses in the NFL, allowing a league-high nine touchdowns as well as 4.9 yards per carry. We have to take on some juice here, but Mostert should get six in Week 6.
