Heading into week 17, Dolphins’ QB Ryan Fitzpatrick remains the team’s leading rusher with 228 yards. So, with one game left to be played and Myles Gaskin likely out on Sunday with an ankle injury, the Dolphins needed to sign someone to the 53-man roster.
Ian Rapoport believes Perine will be park of the future in the Miami backfield in 2020, which makes sense as the Dolphins don't have a lot of options right now at the position. Dynasty GMs should make note. Perine is a former fourth round pick and was most recently on the Bengals practice squad.
MIA RB Myles Gaskin - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 16 vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Myles Gaskin played a season-high 48% of the offensive snaps last week, tying Patrick Laird for the lead. He ran nine times for 43 yards while catching two-of-three targets for 29 yards. His role is increasing, but no Miami back has had success this season. He gets a favorable matchup against the Bengals this week, but he's a hard player to trust since he's only really had one game of fantasy value all season. He should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation flex play.
