This week on ‘That Helps Nobody’: Mike McDaniel tells us exactly what we already know just four days out from Miami’s Week 12 matchup against the tail-spinning Jets. The fact that it’s the same knee injury that sent Achane to IR that he’s dealing with now is far from ideal, but it doesn’t sound like the general consensus about the injury this time around is that it’ll be something that will require an extended absence for the rookie to recover from. As of now, fantasy managers can hold out hope that he’ll be ready to suit up on Friday if they so please, but given the tough matchup, short turnaround, and the potential to give Achane an extended rest following the NFL’s first-ever Black Friday game, it might not be a bad idea to have a backup plan in place if Miami would choose to hold him out in Week 12. As has been the case this season, any time missed by Achane would solidify a high-RB2 floor for Raheem Mostert while Achane is absent from the starting lineup.
