Shark Bites

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.

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 is expected to miss the next 3 weeks with a sprained MCL, according to The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson. The Dolphins' trade for RB DeAndre Washington today now makes more sense. Washington will join Matt Breida and Jordan Howard in the backfield while Gaskin is out. We're likely looking at a committee here, with Howard and Breida splitting early-down work and Breida and Washington vying for passing-down duties. It's a situation to avoid in Week 9 fantasy lineups.
