Dolphin RB Myles Gaskin (COVID-19) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list and is likely to play this week against the Raiders. On the season, Gaskin is averaging 3.94 YPC while Ahmed is averaging 4.57 YPC, though Gaskin was the clear starter when healthy. Hopefully we'll have more clarity about the pecking order prior to kickoff.
MIA RB Myles Gaskin - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Buffalo Bills
The first game with Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed in the lineup together cleared up who Miami prefers, and it's Gaskin. Gaskin received 19 touches compared to Ahmed's seven, and played on 76% of the snaps compared to Ahmed's 24%. Gaskin was highly productive, finishing with 87 yards on 14 carries, and going 5-82-2 as a receiver. In his last seven games, Gaskin is averaging over 20 touches while producing 106.7 scrimmage yards. Expect another solid game from Gaskin this week as Miami will lean on him heavily in a must-win game to enter the playoffs. Gaskin can be viewed as a must-start RB1 in Week 17.
