Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin carried the ball 22 times for 66 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday, Sept. 24. He was also targeted five times, catching all of them for 29 yards.
Huddle Up: Gaskin was the workhorse Thursday night, handling the ball on 27 of the team's 57 total offensive plays. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, while Gaskin did the dirty work it was Jordan Howard that checked in near the goal line to deprive the rookie of scoring opportunities -- both Howard and Ryan Fitzpatrick scored on one-yard runs. That arrangement undercuts Gaskin's value, even as the primary back, and leaves him in RB3 territory.

Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin ran seven times for a team-high 46 yards in Week 2 against the Buffalo Bills and he also added six receptions for 36 yards on seven targets.
Huddle Up: It wasn't a great day, but Gaskin was the best of the lot among the backs for fantasy purposes. He had 13 total touches to eight for Matt Breida and just five for Jordan Howard. Brian Flores, a Bill Belichick disciple, is looking like his mentor in his handling of the backfield. Fantasy owners didn't need another one of those situations. The Dolphins travel to meet the Jaguars in Week 3 on Thursday.

Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin played 39 plays in Week 1, which was 63 percent of the offense.
Huddle Up: Gaskin had nine carries for 40 yards and four catches for 26 yards. The numbers don't jump off the paper at you, but his snap count was more than Jordan Howard (15 percent) and Matt Breida (23 percent) combined. Gaskin has to be picked up off of waivers, but it's hard to see this usage pattern holding.

Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin rushed for 40 yards on nine carries against the New England Patriots in Week 1. He also caught four passes for 26 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins used multiple running backs during the game, so Gaskin's role likely will change each week. Fantasy players in all leagues probably should avoid Gaskin at this point.

Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin rushed 16 times for 55 yards and a touchdown in Week 16 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Gaskin was getting his chance to carry the mail with Patrick Laird in a secondary role and the rookie out of Washington did a decent job. He is likely to get a longer look in Week 17 against the New England Patriots.

Miami Dolphins WR Myles Gaskin rushed nine times for 43 yards in Week 15 against the New York Giants while adding two grabs for 29 yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: Gaskin, the rookie out of Washington, has shown some glimpses of brilliance, and he looks like he could be a decent backup in the future. For fantasy purposes, his appeal remains rather minimal this season.
