Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Season over
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaskin (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

In the wake of Kenyan Drake getting shipped to the Cardinals and later Kalen Ballage landing on IR due to a leg injury, Gaskin slowly but surely increased his reps in the second half of the campaign. Prior to injuring his left ankle Week 16, Gaskin accrued 36 carries for 133 yards and one touchdown while gathering in seven of 12 targets for 51 yards in seven contests. Look for Patrick Laird to lead the Dolphins' backfield in the season finale, with De'Lance Turner and Samaje Perine handling any backfield snaps that remain.

Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Week 17 status up in air
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaskin's status is murky for Sunday's game at New England due to a left ankle injury, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Despite departing with 3:59 remaining in the fourth quarter this past Sunday against the Bengals, Gaskin received the most touches (17) among Dolphins running backs in a game that went to overtime. If he indeed sits out the regular-season finale, Miami's backfield will be whittled down to Patrick Laird, De'Lance Turner and potentially a player currently not under contract.

Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: First career TD before injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaskin rushed 16 times for 55 yards and a touchdown and secured one of three targets for three yards in the Dolphins' 38-35 overtime win against the Bengals on Sunday before exiting the game for good with 3:59 remaining in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury.

Before his premature exit, Gaskin had notched his first career rushing score early in the fourth quarter on a two-yard run. Gaskin also established new high-water marks in carries and rushing yards in the contest, but his status for the Week 17 finale against the Patriots is now firmly in question.

Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Done for day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaskin (ankle) is out for the remainder of the game against the Bengals, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Gaskin was carted off the field after suffering a left ankle injury. That could mean more reps for De'Lance Turner in the closing minutes of the contest.

Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Productive in limited action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaskin carried the ball nine times for 43 yards and caught two of three targets for 29 yards during Sunday's 36-20 loss to the Giants.

Gaskin once again played second fiddle to Patrick Laird during Sunday's loss, but he notched season-high totals in terms of both rushing and receiving yards. The rookie seventh-round pick has steadily earned increased touches down the stretch, and he could realistically operate in a near-even timeshare with Laird against the Bengals in Week 16.

Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Little impact in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaskin carried the ball four times for five yards during Sunday's 22-21 loss to the Jets. He also caught one of two targets for six yards.

The rookie seventh-round pick once again played second fiddle to Patrick Laird, who is operating as Miami's featured option out of the backfield. Even with Kalen Ballage (Achilles) now on injured reserve, Gaskin's lack of production, albeit in a small sample, may be keeping him from garnering a larger role. It remains to be seen whether Gaskin, or potentially recent pickup Zach Zenner, will operate as the primary backup to Laird down the stretch.

Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Larger role beacons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaskin is expected to see increased involvement out of the Miami backfield after Kalen Ballage (Achilles) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

Gaskin stands to duke it out with Patrick Laird and Zach Zenner for backfield work to close out the season, while De'Lance Turner looms as more of a special-teams contributor. Laird has shown well as a pass catcher in recent weeks, and he outpaced Gaskin in the Week 13 win over the Eagles, playing 43 offensive snaps (60 percent) to the latter's 16 (20 percent). Still, Gaskin could still see enough opportunities to push for a larger role if he impresses. In four games this season, the rookie seventh-round pick has rushed seven times for 30 yards and has caught three of four targets for 13 yards.

Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Small role in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaskin carried the ball twice for 20 yards during Sunday's 37-31 win over the Eagles. He also caught his only target for six yards.

Even after lead back Kalen Ballage (leg) was forced out of Sunday's game in the second quarter, Gaskin didn't garner a substantial workload. Instead, fellow rookie Patrick Laird took over Miami's backfield reps, rushing 10 times for five yards and a score and turning five targets into four catches for 43 yards. It appears as though Gaskin could remain in a reserve role even if Ballage is forced to miss significant time.

Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Four carries in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaskin carried the ball four times for 10 yards in Sunday's 41-24 loss to the Browns. He also caught his only target for seven yards.

Gaskin's workload appears to be ramping up following the recent release of Mark Walton, and with Kalen Ballage's continued inability to reliably produce, the Dolphins' backfield could trend towards a timeshare as the season concludes. In the event that Ballage loses his tenuous grip on the No. 1 job, Gaskin and fellow rookie Patrick Laird each would push for larger roles.

Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: No yardage again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaskin ran once for no gain and was unable to bring in his only target during Sunday's 37-20 loss to the Bills.

Gaskin has now gained zero yards on both of his 2019 touches. It speaks a little to where the 2019 seventh-round pick is in his development that, despite a massive lack of production and depletion of depth at running back in Miami in recent weeks, Gaskin has logged just 12 offensive snaps over the past two games. The release of Mark Walton, who was already serving a suspension, might preserve whatever role the rookie develops until the end of the season, but as of now that role amounts to a touch or two a game for minimal yardage. Next up in Week 12 is a weak Browns run defense.

Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Gains no yardage in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaskin caught his only target for no yards in Sunday's 16-12 win over the Colts.

Gaskin got bumped up the depth chart in the absence of Mark Walton (suspension) and recorded the first touch of his career. There may not be too many more this season, even without Walton. If Sunday is any indication, Kalen Ballage will enjoy the lion's share of touches in Walton's absence while Patrick Laird fills in behind. That leaves a limited role for Gaskin over the next three games. Next up is a Buffalo defense that dominates against the pass, but ranks 20th in the league at 4.5 yards per carry allowed.

Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Primed for backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaskin is likely to climb Miami's depth chart and play a reserve role with Mark Walton serving a four-game suspension, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Gaskin hasn't yet gotten a chance to play this season, but he and Patrick Laird will now be forced into depth roles behind Kalen Ballage for at least the next four weeks. The Dolphins may opt to add another running back to the roster, but the team could realistically also attempt to make the most of Walton's suspension by taking a look at Gaskin, a rookie selected in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Healthy scratch again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaskin (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Ravens, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Gaskin hasn't yet suited up for a regular-season contest. He's operating as the No. 5 running back in Miami behind Kenyan Drake, Kalen Ballage, Mark Walton and Patrick Laird.

Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Healthy scratch for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaskin (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's clash against Baltimore.

Gaskin wasn't dealing with an injury coming into the game, and continues to face an uphill battle for snaps. With the Washington product sidelined, Mark Walton will fill in as the third running back behind Kenyan Drake and Kalen Ballage.

Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Provides spark against Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaskin carried the ball eight times for 48 yards while catching both his targets for 17 yards in Thursday's preseason win over the Saints.

Neither Kenyan Drake nor Kalen Ballage suited up in Miami's final preseason game, and while Mark Walton got the start and led the team in rushing, Gaskin made a positive impression as well -- his 17-yard scamper in the third quarter was the longest of the night by a running back on either team. The seventh-round pick in this year's draft remains in the hunt for the No. 3 RB spot, but he might need a Walton suspension to win it.

Dolphins' Myles Gaskin: Heads to Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins selected Gaskin in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 234th overall.

Gaskin finished his collegiate career 13th all-time in rushing yards (5,323) and 16th all-time in touchdowns (62), but a 4.58 40-yard dash at the combine seemed to destroy any sort of mid-round hype for the Washington product. Gaskin seemingly probes too long for a big play, often times losing yards instead of hitting the hole, and has struggled to shake off would-be tacklers even at the second level, instead relying on his athleticism to run around people. Both of those facets could force Gaskin to take on more of a complementary role in the Dolphins backfield, likely spelling Kalen Ballage and Kenyan Drake as an explosive change-of-pace back.
