ESPN - [Full Article]

Dolphins HC Adam Gase said he wants his running backs to be able to play all three downs. He doesn't want to sub too much on offense.

Fantasy Impact: 

These comments would seemingly boost the upside of Ajayi, who is penciled in as the Dolphins' starter. However, in Gase's offense last year (in Chicago), Jeremy Langford averaged 8.8 touches per game when Matt Forte was active. In Denver, Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson averaged 14.0 touches and 7.4 touches respectively in the six games they played together in 2014 (under Gase). So despite these comments, it appears that Gase uses a typical RB1/RB2 split on game day.
