Draft note
by John Paulsen
Gaskin is going near the 4th/5th turn after surprisingly leading the Dolphins’ backfield last season. He averaged more than 18 touches per game when active last season, including 4.1 receptions per game, which puts him on pace for 60+ catches over a full season. The Dolphins signed Malcolm Brown, giving him the 11th-most guaranteed money for this year’s free agent class, so I don’t think he moves Gaskin’s needle too much. Miami ignored the position until the seventh round, finally drafting Gerrid Doaks out of Cincinnati. The thing that jumped out to me about Gaskin’s 2020 season is how the Dolphins went right back to him even as he was coming off of a couple of injuries. After missing four games midseason, Gaskin returned to 23 touches in Week 13. After missing two more games, he returned to 19 touches in Week 16. The missed games are certainly a concern, but the certainty of his role is not, at least at this point.

MIA RB Myles Gaskin - 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Myles Gaskin came out of nowhere to lead Miami’s backfield last season. He had the 10th-highest fantasy points per game of running backs to play in at least five games, averaging 14.4 points in half-PPR. The shocking part of Gaskin’s season was his volume, as he averaged over 18 touches per game. He was effective on the ground, and as a receiver out of the backfield (4.1 receptions per game). He turned his touches into production, finishing with 97.2 scrimmage yards per game.

Fantasy Downside
The Dolphins didn’t have much depth behind Gaskin last year, which is what helped lead to his high amount of touches. This year, Miami brought in Malcolm Brown, who is coming off of a 581-yard season with the Rams. The Dolphins also upped their passing attack, adding weapons in Will Fuller and Jaylen Waddle. Gaskin also missed six games last season, four due to injury and two while on the COVID list.

2021 Bottom Line
We’re projecting around four fewer touches per game this year compared to last for Gaskin. Brown’s arrival will make somewhat of an impact, but it certainly won’t be too much cause for concern. Gaskin should be leaned on again as the top player in this backfield, and his involvement in the passing game makes him a nice option for PPR-friendly leagues. We’re projecting over 1,100 scrimmage yards for Gaskin, placing him in the top 25 running backs (half-PPR).
