WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Myles Gaskin | Dolphins RB

Myles Gaskin has cleared the COVID-19 protocols.

This is great news for Miami, as they will have their starting running back at practice today ahead of a big game on Sunday to get to 7-7. Against a Jets defense allowing the most fantasy points per game to opposing runners, Gaskin will be on the RB2 map, though it'll be interesting to see if he handles a normal workload.

Myles Gaskin has tested positive for COVID-19, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

Miami's bye week came at a good time for Gaskin, and he will have a chance to get cleared by next Sunday because he's vaccinated. Still, Salvon Ahmed and/or Phillip Lindsay are worth picking up for running back-needy teams ahead of the fantasy playoffs, especially with the Dolphins playing the Jets in Week 15.

The Dolphins activated Myles Gaskin from the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Gaskin missed the past two games while on the COVID list, but he'll be back for this Saturday against the Raiders. The Dolphins backfield is interesting, with Salvon Ahmed racking up 122 rushing yards on 23 carries last week, but Gaskin has been the lead back when he's been on the field this season.

The Dolphins placed Myles Gaskin on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Gaskin will be out for Sunday’s game against the Chiefs, which is obviously a big loss for Miami’s offense. With Salvon Ahmed (shoulder) also out and Matt Breida (reserve/COVID-19 list) still not cleared to return, Deandre Washington projects to lead the backfield and should be a volume-based RB2 in a good matchup.

Myles Gaskin (knee) has been activated from injured reserve.

Gaskin will immediately slide back in as the lead back for Miami, and he could have a full workload tomorrow with the backfield suddenly hit by injury and COVID-19 issues. Consider him a quality RB2 play for Week 13 and likely beyond.

The Dolphins are placing Myles Gaskin (knee) on IR.

This was expected, and Gaskin will now officially miss at least the next three games for Miami. Look for Matt Breida to lead the backfield with Jordan Howard potentially being used as a short-yardage option after falling out of the rotation in recent weeks. The recently acquired DeAndre Washington will also have a role when he can play.

Myles Gaskin (knee) is expected to miss three weeks.

Gaskin is reportedly dealing with an MCL sprain, and this is kind of out of nowhere. It explains Miami's acquisition of DeAndre Washington for depth purposes, but Matt Breida is expected to lead the backfield moving forward. Jordan Howard could also get work moving forward after he was phased out of the backfield in recent weeks.

The Dolphins have selected Washington running back Myles Gaskin in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Gaskins is one of the most productive college football running backs of all-time, helping Chris Peterson and the Huskies win a lot of games the past four seasons. Gaskins has the 12-most rushing yards in college football history (5,323), as he ran for over 1,000 yards in each of his four seasons at Washington and became the program’s all-time leading rusher. He also had double-digit touchdowns in each of his four seasons, with 57 total in his college career. The size of Gaskins (five-foot-nine, 205 pounds) might make it difficult for him to be a three-down back, but he should be able to produce at the next level after a stellar college career. He'll look to compete for snaps as a rookie, and it's possible he'll deliver some fantasy value in 2019 if he gets a good amount of playing time.
