Matt Breida has played 30 snaps, run the ball 12 times and caught one pass through the first two weeks of the season. Myles Gaskin and Jordan Howard have both gotten more carries and Gaskin has nearly tripled Breida’s snaps over the first two games.
Breida came from a crowded backfield in San Francisco, but so far it hasn't translated to more work in Miami. The story said the Dolphins haven't really played with a lead much this season, aside from a brief time in Week 2, but Breida was considered the change of pace and pass-catching option behind Howard anyway. If the trend continues, it will be tough to keep Breida on fantasy rosters.
MIA RB Myles Gaskin - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 3 at Jaguars
It turns out Week 1 wasn't a fluke and Myles Gaskin once again led the Dolphins in touches in Week 2. He's had back-to-back double digit games in PPR leagues as he's emerged as a solid receiving threat out of the backfield, finishing with six receptions off seven targets last week. Unfortunately for Gaskin, Jordan Howard has a strong hold on goal line carries and Matt Breida is being used just enough to limit Gaskin's ceiling. Still, he's turned into a decent flex play in PPR formats. He gets a favorable matchup against the Jaguars in Week 3, who have allowed the third-most receptions and fourth-most receiving yards to running backs this season.
