The trait that makes Myles Gaskin stand out is he runs hard and has a knack for finding positive yards out of nearly every run. Not super fast or super strong, Gaskin is a bit undersized and very few scouts had him pegged as a starting running back in the NFL.
While many thought the backfield would be led by Howard and Breida, instead it's been Gaskin. Gaskin has led the Dolphins' backfield in snaps, touches and rushing yards in every game this season. He has played at least 63% of the offensive reps in every game while averaging over 18 touches per game. He's on pace for 1,392 total yards (rushing and receiving), which would be the most for a Dolphins running back since Jay Ajayi in 2016, the story said.
MIA RB Myles Gaskin - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 6 vs. New York Jets
Myles Gaskin's role has been pretty well defined by this point, but he received a boost last week when the Dolphins made Jordan Howard a healthy scratch. As a result, Gaskin finally scored his first touchdown of the season, while finishing with 21 total touches for 91 scrimmage yards. He gets a great matchup against the Jets in Week 6 (29th in aFPA), and should be viewed as a strong RB2 play.
