Player Outlook
Gaskin went from the lead running back for the Dolphins over the past two seasons to now competing for a job this year. He is not worth drafting in most leagues. The Dolphins added Chase Edmonds, Sony Michel and Raheem Mostert this offseason, and Gaskin will likely be fourth on the depth chart to open the season -- if he stays in Miami. It would not be a surprise to see the Dolphins move on from Gaskin, which might be the only way he can salvage his Fantasy value. Keep an eye on what develops, but the Dolphins don't appear to be sticking with Gaskin as their lead rusher after the moves made this offseason. He could emerge as a waiver wire option during the season if any injury occurs, but Gaskin's Fantasy value has decreased significantly from the end of the 2021 campaign when he averaged 10.2 PPR points per game.

  • Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Part of crowded backfield

    Gaskin has further competition for backfield snaps following the Dolphins' signing of Sony Michel, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN reports. The Dolphins previously added Chase Edmonds and Raheem Mostert (knee) this offseason, while fellow returnee Salvon Ahmed received a contract tender from the team. Collectively, the moves provide first-year coach Mike McDaniel with a deep backfield with which to work, but in terms of Gaskin's fantasy prospects, steady volume figures to be an issue when all the key RB cogs are available. The 25-year-old led Miami with 173 carries (for 612 yards) in 17 games last season while adding 49 catches for 234 yards and recording seven total TDs in that span.

  • Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Facing crowded backfield

    Gaskin may have fallen as low as No.3 on Miami's running back depth chart, with the team having signed Raheem Mostert (knee) on Wednesday and Chase Edmonds earlier in free agency, Field Yates of ESPN reports. One of new coach Mike McDaniel's top tasks in Miami is revitalizing the ground game, and the team wasted no time in bringing in two experienced and reliable tailbacks. Mostert has already proven an ability to post prolific numbers under McDaniel's scheme, though he is recovering from a serious knee injury, while Edmonds emerged as one of the more effective change-of-pace complements in the league during his Arizona tenure. Gaskin, meanwhile, posted a career-high 612 rushing yards last season but saw Duke Johnson overtake him for the No. 1 gig down the stretch. If Mostert is fully healthy by Week 1, it seems more than possible that Gaskin will only operate in a depth role.

  • Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Quiet end to 2021 campaign

    Gaskin had one carry for minus one yards and secured all three of his targets for 11 yards during Sunday's 33-24 win over the Patriots. Gaskin saw Duke Johnson (25-117-1) overtake the lead role in Miami's backfield down the stretch, while he himself only played 11 percent of offensive snaps during the season finale. With a new coaching staff incoming, the stage would appear set for the Dolphins to re-sign Johnson this offseason and/or bring in further backfield help via free agency or the 2021 NFL Draft. Any such addition would cause Gaskins' fantasy value to further dip in dynasty formats, as his chances of beginning the 2022 campaign with a valuable role would look slim. Despite playing a full 17-game slate, Gaskin finished 2021 with only 173 carries for 612 yards) and three scores, to go with 49 catches for 234 yards and four touchdowns on 63 targets.

  • Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Plays second fiddle in loss

    Gaskin had five carries for 23 yards during Sunday's 34-3 loss to the Titans. Gaskin also failed to secure his only target, while once again surrendering the lead role to Duke Johnson (seven carries for 49 yards). Though Gaskin was relatively efficient with limited work, he saw slim opportunities for fantasy success on a day in which Tua Tagovailoa fell flat and looked unable to move Miami into scoring range. A regular-season finale against the Patriots could once again position the Dolphins' offense to be stifled, and Gaskin can no longer be considered a lock to receive the bulk of the touches out of the backfield.

  • Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Only four touches

    Gaskin rushed three times for 10 yards and caught one of three targets for six yards in Monday night's 20-3 win over the Saints. Gaskin saw his workload decrease for a second straight week, as last game's breakout saw Duke Johnson earn a large role alongside Phillip Lindsay, who returned from injury to play for the first time since Week 12. Although Johnson and Lindsay tied for Miami's team lead with 13 carries apiece, neither tailback topped 40 yards. As a result, it'll be interesting to see how the Dolphins divide their backfield snaps in Week 17 versus the Titans, but considering his dip in usage the past couple games, Gaskin may have to earn back his starter's share while being subjected to a committee approach.

  • Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Cedes lead role to Johnson in win

    Gaskin rushed 10 times for 54 yards and wasn't targeted in Sunday's 31-24 win over the Jets. Gaskin was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, so he had limited practice reps heading into this game and thus ceded the majority of the workload to Duke Johnson, who rushed for 107 yards and two touchdowns on 22 attempts. The strong performance from Johnson could prompt the Colts to keep him in a timeshare with Gaskin, if not the lead role, in Week 16 against the Saints.

  • Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Part of Week 15 backfield

    Gaskin is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jets, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports. Gaskin, along with fellow running back Salvon Ahmed, was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, which sets the stage for the duo to be part of a Week 15 backfield that also includes Duke Johnson. Meanwhile, Phillip Lindsay (reserve/COVID-19 list) and Malcolm Brown (quad/IR-R) are unavailable for the contest. Gaskin thus figures to continue to head the Dolphins' ground game Sunday, a role that resulting in him logging 15 carries for 44 yard and two catches for five yards the last time the Dolphins played, back in a Dec. 5 win over the Giants.

  • Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Not on injury report

    Coach Brian Flores was non-committal about playing Gaskin and fellow running back Salvon Ahmed in Sunday's game against the Jets, though neither is listed on the injury report after returning from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports. Gaskin was on the list for seven days, missing part of Miami's bye and the first two practices this week. He should be able to play Sunday, but it's possible his workload is scaled back, especially if Malcolm Brown (quad) suits up after being designated to return from IR earlier this week. The Dolphins also have Duke Johnson as a backfield option, while Phillip Lindsay (illness) appears likely to miss Sunday's game as he's on the COVID-19 list.

  • Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Lands on COVID-19 list

    The Dolphins placed Gaskin on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday. Per Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald, Gaskin is vaccinated, which means his placement on the list was the result of a positive test. He'll be eligible to come off the list once he's asymptomatic for a 48-hour period and submits two consecutive negative tests at least 24 hours apart. The Dolphins are on bye Week 14, giving Gaskin a good chance at clearing the necessary protocols before the team's next contest Dec. 19 against the Jets.

  • Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Stalls against Giants

    Gaskin carried the ball 15 times for 44 yards in Sunday's 20-9 win over the Giants. He added two receptions for five yards. Gaskin continued to see plenty of volume, as he reached 15 total touches for the seventh consecutive game. However, he was unable to find the end zone, so his inefficiency finally caught up to him. Gaskin has averaged under four yards per carry in each of his last six contests, though four touchdowns in that span masked his otherwise poor performances. Despite the inefficiency, so long as Malcolm Brown (quadriceps) is unable to return to the field, Gaskin should continue to serve as the clear lead back in the Dolphins offense and thus have the chance to rack up production based on volume alone.

  • Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Scores twice in win

    Gaskin rushed 16 times for 49 yards and two touchdowns and brought in both targets for three yards in the Dolphins' 33-10 win over the Panthers on Sunday. Gaskin saw new arrival Phillip Lindsay log 12 carries of his own, but it was the former who got two rushing opportunities from inside the five-yard line that he parlayed into a pair of three-yard touchdown runs. Gaskin had scored on the ground only once all season prior to Sunday, and the two visits to the end zone helped prop up what would have otherwise been a very pedestrian fantasy performance. The workload split between Gaskin and Lindsay will be one to monitor moving forward, beginning with a Week 13 home matchup against the Giants.

  • Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Capitalizes on favorable matchup

    Gaskin rushed 23 times for 89 yards while catching three of four targets for seven yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-17 win over the Jets. Gaskin delivered a strong performance in a workhorse role against a generous Jets defense. He broke a 14-14 tie with a five-yard receiving touchdown in the fourth quarter, and the Dolphins never looked back from there. While his 26 touches were highly encouraging, Gaskin will face a much stiffer test in Week 12 against the Panthers.

  • Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Busy day in win

    Gaskin rushed 20 times for 34 yards and a touchdown and secured all six targets for 23 yards in the Dolphins' 17-9 win over the Texans on Sunday. He also lost a fumble. Sometimes a productive fantasy performance is achieved through sheer volume, and such was the case for Gaskin on Sunday. The third-year back surprisingly had trouble finding running room against what had been an increasingly porous Texans run defense, but he helped lock in a productive afternoon with a six-yard touchdown run in the first quarter and his second-highest catch total of the season. Gaskin next faces a tough Ravens run defense in a Thursday night home matchup.

  • Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Performs well with heavier workload

    Gaskin rushed 15 times for 67 yards, secured all four targets for 10 yards and a touchdown and returned two kickoffs for 29 yards in the Dolphins' 30-28 loss to the Falcons on Sunday. Gaskin had logged single-digit carry totals for three straight games prior to Sunday, but he parlayed a season-high number of carries into a new high-water mark in rushing yardage. Gaskin also made his mark through the air while notching his third straight multi-catch tally and his third receiving touchdown of the campaign on a seven-yard scoring grab just before the halfway point of the fourth quarter. Whether Gaskin's rushing volume holds up in a Week 8 road battle against the Bills remains to be seen, however, considering Buffalo could well force Miami into a pass-heavy game script at some point during that road divisional clash.

  • Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Abysmal effort against Jaguars

    Gaskin rushed the ball five times for nine yards in Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Jaguars. He added two receptions for five yards. Gaskin was the beneficiary of game script for a big Week 5 effort, but he couldn't carry that momentum into Sunday's loss. He drew five of the team's 20 rushing attempts, two fewer than Salvon Ahmed. Even factoring in the limited volume he received, Gaskin did little, as his longest rush went for only four yards and he averaged just 1.8 yards per carry. Through six games, Gaskin has topped five rushing attempts only twice and surpassed 50 rushing yards in a game on one occasion.

  • Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Ten catches, two TDs in Week 5 loss

    Gaskin rushed five times for 25 yards and caught all 10 of his targets for 74 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 45-17 loss to Tampa Bay. Gaskin reestablished himself as the primary option in Miami's backfield, though the Dolphins rarely tested the dominant Tampa Bay front on the ground and largely abandoned the run after falling behind. His career-high 10 catches included touchdowns of 24 yards and one yard. Gaskin hadn't previously found the end zone this season, but his significant involvement as both a rusher and a receiver will make the 24-year-old running back an appealing Week 6 option against the winless Jaguars in London.

  • Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Nine touches in blowout loss

    Gaskin rushed five times for 25 yards and caught four of five targets for 21 yards in Sunday's 35-0 loss to the Bills. Miami had to abandon the running game after falling behind early, and Gaskin worked in a three-man rotation with Malcolm Brown and Salvon Ahmed. All three running backs got either five or six carries, but none got much going as Miami struggled to move the ball with backup Jacoby Brissett under center following an early Tua Tagovailoa rib injury. The entire Miami offense will be tough to trust in Week 3 against the Raiders if Tagovailoa's absence lingers.

  • Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Totals 76 yards

    Gaskin carried the ball nine times for 49 yards in Sunday's Week 1 victory against the Patriots. He added five receptions for 27 yards. Gaskin led the Miami backfield with nine carries, though Malcolm Brown and Salvon Ahmed combined for eight carries. He was fairly efficient with those touches, recording gains of 15 yards and an additional carry of eight yards. Gaskin also produced well as a receiver, as he led the team with five receptions and successfully hauled in all of his targets. Though he may not see workhorse volume, Gaskin appears to be set for a significant role in Week 2 against Buffalo.

  • Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Multi-touchdown effort in win

    Gaskin rushed six times for 27 yards and a touchdown and secured all four targets for 44 yards and another score in the Dolphins' 37-17 preseason win over the Falcons on Saturday night. Gaskin made a strong case for being deployed as a true lead back in a crowded backfield come the regular season with Saturday's versatile performance. The third-year back had a hand in both of Miami's first-half touchdowns, finding the end zone from a yard out on the ground in the first quarter before adding an eight-yard receiving score to cap off an 11-play drive early in the second quarter. Gaskin also saw his likely primary competitor for touches, offseason signee Malcolm Brown, turn in a solid 10-carry, 43-yard, one-touchdown tally, so it's likely the two players and Salvon Ahmed still see a fair share of work week-to-week, with Gaskin seemingly having a good opportunity to lead the pack by at least a modest degree.

  • Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: May lead committee

    Head coach Brian Flores said the Dolphins will employ Gaskin, Malcolm Brown and Salvon Ahmed "situationally as best fits their skill set and what's best for the team," Barry Jackson and Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald report. "Gaskin can play first, second, third down, but depending on the situation, we may put another player in there," Flores said. Additionally, Flores labeled Gaskin as a "change of place" player as compared to "a power back" in Brown. As for Ahmed, Flores said he simply "has good speed, coming out of the backfield." In last weekend's preseason loss to Chicago, Brown made the start at running back, with Gaskin and Ahmed coming off the bench. In the regular season, the Dolphins will almost certainly head into Week 1 with a three-man backfield committee, but the actual workload split will warrant close monitoring. Flores' comments still make it seem as though Gaskin will operate as the starter, but he may not be able to repeat the near-every-down usage he saw in 2020 if Brown and Ahmed indeed carve out regular weekly roles.
