The fastest player on the fastest team, according to Mostert
The Miami Dolphins are the quickest team in the NFL, as shown by the fact that they have played three games in 2023 with the five fastest ball-carrier speeds. They also scored 70 points in a game against the Denver Broncos on Sunday, scoring 50 points in the process thanks to a number of spectacular plays.
Raheem Mostert, who has two rushes of more than 20 yards and eight of more than 10, has been one of the Dolphins offense’s most important playmakers. He has 250 yards of total rushing this season, averaging 5.9 yards per carry, and six touchdowns.
Three Dolphins players have clocked speeds of more than 21 mph when carrying the ball, with Mostert being one of them. Although Mostert claims to be the squad’s fastest player, the Dolphins are a quick team.
And Mostert is aware that Jaylen Waddle and Tyreek Hill are teammates.
This week on The Rich Eisen Show, Mostert declared, “Oh yeah, hands down, I win this race.” I’ll tell you what, though. Tyreek is fast in a race, make no mistake about that, but I can analyse his speed. He also has more of that twitchy quality.
“I’m more of a long-strider; once I get going, it’s difficult to catch me, impossible to beat me,” the speaker said. The same is true with J-Dub (Waddle), who is sandwiched between Tyreek and I. It will undoubtedly be a thrilling race, but I believe I have the upper hand.
What about De’Von Achane, who racked up 203 yards on 18 carries and two scores during the rout? Achane does have the highest average carry yardage in the NFL at 10.95.
He’s in the running too; he’s more of an on-the-flare quick person, according to Mostert. There will be no clear winner.
We are unquestionably the fastest team in the NFL, and if we held a race where each guy ran in a different position, we would win without a doubt, I’ll say that much.
The five NFL players with the quickest ball-carrier speeds this year are all from the Dolphins: two are Achane, two are Hill, and one is Mostert. These ball carriers are the quickest, according to Next Gen Stats:
67-yard rush TD
47-yard reception TD
43-yard rush TD
35-yard reception TD
It would be interesting to observe if they organised a demonstration race.
