Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

-A 2019 7th round pick, Gaskin overtook Matt Breida and Jordan Howard to lead Miami in rushing (142-584-3) last season. He finished 3rd on the team in receptions (41).

-The 24-year-old averaged 97.2 total yards per game — 10th most among RBs.

-Gaskin hit 10 PPR points in 9 of 10 games.

-Gaskin played in an offense with inconsistent QB play and no vertical presence to threaten defenses. A young O-line ranked 24th in adjusted line yards; 21st in Pro Football Focus’ run blocking grades. Not great.

-Gaskin’s 2019 season ended with a high-ankle sprain. He missed 4 games in 2020 with an MCL sprain; 2 on the COVID-19 list.

-Gaskin thrived as a pass blocker, allowing only 2 pressures on 68 pass blocking opportunities. He should remain Miami’s passing down back.

-Gaskin wasn’t anything special as a runner; his PFF Elusive Rating ranked 59th among 162 RBs. He sat 83rd in yards after contact per attempt.

-The Dolphins have expressed interest in a number of free agent RBs over the past 2 seasons, including Le’Veon Bell, Aaron Jones and Kerryon Johnson. They signed Malcolm Brown in March, but another move can’t be ruled out. For now, Brown — a power back — is a candidate to see goal line work.

-The Dolphins waited until Round 7 to add Cincinnati RB Gerrid Doaks.

-Miami’s O-line will look for improvement from within. They added more youth to an already young line by selecting Notre Dame OT/OG Liam Eichenberg in Round 2.

-The Dolphins promoted from within, elevating former RB coach Eric Studesville and TE coach George Godsey to Co-OC positions. Gaskin said in May that he’s learning “a whole new playbook.”

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Gaskin enjoyed a mini breakout last year. He bypassed a pair of veterans on the depth chart and popped for several fantasy-friendly lines on a young Miami offense.

His 3rd season brings his best supporting cast yet. Will Fuller and Jaylen Waddle to give Miami some much needed speed. In theory, Gaskin should see fewer loaded boxes — especially if Tua Tagovailoa takes a step forward.

Miami, however, has made several attempts to add legit RB competition. It didn’t happen this offseason, but we’d caution against the notion of Gaskin being locked into a weekly workhorse role. He’s a fringe RB2 entering the summer.

Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin has been activated from the COVID list and practiced on Wednesday. That puts him on track to return for Saturday night's game against the Raiders. A healthy Gaskin has been Miami's lead back, averaging 17.5 carries and 4.3 targets over his last 6 games. We're expecting him to return to a similar role, despite RB Salvon Ahmed's solid Week 15 outing.

Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin has been placed on the COVID list. It's unclear if he tested positive for the virus, but he's out for at least this weekend's game vs. the Chiefs. RB Matt Breida is also on the COVID list, while RB Salvon Ahmed is out with his shoulder injury. Miami is down to RBs Patrick Laird, DeAndre Washington and Elijah McGuire, who was just elevated from the practice squad. It's anyone's guess as to how touches will be divvied here, so it's a situation to try to avoid in Week 14 fantasy lineups.

Update: ESPN's Field Yates reports that Gaskin tested positive for COVID, so he'll likely miss Week 15, too.

Dolphins RBs Salvon Ahmed (shoulder) and DeAndre Washington (hamstring) are inactive for today’s game against the Bengals. RB Matt Breida (COVID) is also out, leaving Miami’s backfield to Myles Gaskin and Patrick Laird. Assuming Gaskin’s knee is somewhere close to 100%, he should step back into a workhorse role.

Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin (knee) has been activated from IR. That puts him on track to return for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Gaskin averaged 16.8 carries and 4.8 targets over his last 5 games and has a shot to see a similar workload tomorrow with RBs Salvon Ahmed, DeAndre Washington and Matt Breida all likely sidelined. It puts Gaskin right back in the RB2 mix.

Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin (knee) won't be activated from IR and will miss Sunday's game against the Jets, ESPN's Cameron Wolfe reports. With RB Salvon Ahmed also out, Miami is down to RBs Matt Breida, DeAndre Washington and Patrick Laird. We're guessing that Breida leads the way in touches tomorrow -- but it's just a guess. You should try to avoid the situation in fantasy lineups.
