Myles Gaskin has improved into a trusted pass blocker, Brian Flores indicates. He also has a very professional approach. For fantasy, this tells me Gaskin still most likely to lead in snaps and touches.
When the Dolphins didn't do much to improve their RB room in the NFL Draft, attention immediately turned back to Gaskin. But throughout camp the Dolphins have indicated this was going to be a committee situation, and there was a lot of buzz when Brown started a preseason game and outsnapped Gaskin. But this is at least encouraging news to see Gaskin has improved in the pass blocking area and it could mean he stays on the field more in those situations.
MIA RB Myles Gaskin - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 12 vs. Carolina Panthers
Myles Gaskin continues to be a touch magnet as he finished last week with 26 touches (23 carries, 3 receptions). He also managed 96 scrimmage yards and a touchdown in one of his more productive games of the season. In fact, he set a season-high of 89 rush yards. Gaskin's overall production has been somewhat of a roller coaster this year, but his role has been pretty steady over the past five games ever since Malcolm Brown's injury. He's averaged over 20 touches per game in that span, which means he's usually good to finish with at least 60 scrimmage yards, with a decent chance for a TD. He gets a really tough matchup against the Panthers this week, a defense that's allowed the third-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs. Still, he should get enough touches to warrant a start, and fantasy owners should him as a solid RB2 play.
