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.
Twitter was buzzing during the Dolphins game as Brown got the start and a majority of the touches. Beat writers pointed out that while Brown has had a good camp, Gaskin has been just as good, if not better, according to those reporters. The Dolphins were rumored to draft or bring in a bigger name at the position, but that didn't happen and the hope by many would be that Gaskin would be the lead back. That could still happen, but at least for now, there is some coach-speak that the team likes all of their backs.

Dolphins RB Salvon Ahmed (shoulder, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 15. Ahmed was a DNP all last week, so this is a definite upgrade. If he's able to play, he should lead this backfield in carries with Myles Gaskin on the reserve/COVID list. The Dolphins play early on Sunday.
