Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin carried the ball nine times for 49 yards against the New England Patriots on Sunday, Sept. 12. He added five receptions for 27 yards.
Huddle Up: Gaskin's 14 combined touches led the team, finishing well ahead of Malcolm Brown and Salvon Ahmed, both of whom had five. His 76 yards trailed only DeVante Parker (81). There's definitely some upside with Gaskin, who struggled with injuries last season, as he appears to be the top running back in the current committee approach. That's enough for flex value but not more than that outside of plus matchups.

Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin rushed six times for 27 yards and a touchdown and caught four passes for 44 yards and another score in a 37-17 preseason win over the Atlanta Falcons Saturday, Aug. 21.
Huddle Up: Gaskin is expected to lead the Miami backfield in 2021, but he is likely the top option in a committee, rather than an every-down workhorse. Consider him a solid flex option with RB2 upside.

Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin is the leading candidate to start at running back for the Dolphins in 2021 since the team did not select a running back early in the draft.
Huddle Up: Gaskin will still need to share playing time with Salvon Ahmed and Malcolm Brown but likely will receive a majority of carries each game. He can be considered a No. 3 fantasy running back if he keeps the starting job.

Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin likely will be the starting running back or No. 2 running back in 2021 depending on if the team selects a running back early in the draft.
Huddle Up: Gaskin posted decent numbers last season and likely will see a solid amount of touches even if he does not start. He can be a No. 3 running back if he starts but can still be rostered even if he is the main backup.

Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin caught 41 of his 47 targets in 2020, and his 9.5 yards per reception were tied for the most among running backs with 20 or more receptions.
Huddle Up: Gaskin emerged as Miami's lead back in his second season, piling up 972 yards from scrimmage in 10 games. The Dolphins could be in the market for a bigger back to handle early-down work, but Gaskin should at least retain a solid role in the passing attack in 2021 and provide some PPR value.

Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Dec. 23.
Huddle Up: Gaskin will return in time for an excellent Week 16 matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders' rush defense. He'll be a high-end RB2 with backup Salvon Ahmed expected to play a much lesser role.

Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin on Saturday, Dec. 12, was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list and will miss Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Yikes, the unpredictable suddeness of 2020 strikes again as Gaskin will sit out a week after returning from injured reserve with a 141 total yards against the Bengals. With Slavon Ahmed also out Sunday, DeAndre Washington, Patrick Laird and Elijah McGuire are the backs left in the Miami backfield, but none are worth more than a desperation deep league flex play.

Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 11, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.
Huddle Up: Gaskin has regained his starting job and likely will receive most of the touches at running back this week. He can be considered at least a flex option in fantasy leagues.

Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 10.
Huddle Up: Gaskin likely will be able to play this week, but fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation. He should receive most of the work at running back if he is active and can be a No. 2 running back or flex option.
