The Miami Dolphins have been an interesting team to track during the 2023 NFL season as their offense has drawn rave reviews from analysts and fans alike.
The Dolphins have arguably the most explosive position players in the league led by Tyreek Hill, but they also boast Jaylen Waddle and Raheem Mostert.
Tua Tagovailoa has looked electric when he has time in the pocket to let his receivers get downfield, but he and the rest of the team have struggled against playoff-caliber opponents.
Miami’s got to prove that they’re able to beat good teams, or else they’ll always be considered a faux Super Bowl contender.
However, the Dolphins should be able to stack another win as they’re considered massive favorites in their upcoming matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Miami’s offense is getting a boost against Las Vegas as they are activating De’Von Achane from injured reserve via Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Dolphins activated rookie RB De’Von Achane off injured reserve today and he will play Sunday vs. the Raiders. Despite not playing the past four weeks due to his knee injury, Achane still is tied for the league lead in 20+ yard carries with six and he still leads the league in 40+… pic.twitter.com/yta7vajooy

Achane spent the past few weeks on IR with a knee injury, but the rookie running back suffered no setbacks and will make his return to the field against a hot Raiders team.
The tailback instantly made an impact for the Dolphins when he got touches as he was able to show off his homerun ability both in the run and pass games.
Achane fits the identity and mold of head coach Mike McDaniel’s scheme and he should go right back to torching defenses.
Las Vegas may be winners of two straight, but their defense might be in for a long day considering how many threats they have to contend with.
