2020 Fantasy Outlook
The Kenyan Drake trade doesn't look great for the Dolphins, but once he was out of the picture, the team did at least get a chance to look at its other backfield options. Gaskin, a seventh-round pick in last year's draft out of Washington, seemed to be emerging as the cream of that weak crop when his season ended early due to an ankle injury, as he'd piled up 98 rushing yards and a touchdown on 25 carries in Weeks 15 and 16. A little undersized by NFL standards at 5-10, 200, Gaskin's background as a high-school track star makes him dangerous in the open field, and in college he flashed the agility and balance to get through traffic to greener pastures. He's not a decisive runner, however, looking to bounce plays outside too often, and predictably he had more difficulty escaping from NFL tacklers. The Dolphins added Jordan Howard and Matt Breida to the backfield in the offseason, pushing Gaskin back down the depth chart, but he could prove to be an effective change-of-pace option if Breida has trouble staying healthy.

Escapes draft with lead role intact
RBMiami Dolphins
May 3, 2021
Gaskin remains atop Miami's backfield depth chart after the team waited until the seventh round of the 2021 NFL Draft to bring in competition, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The Dolphins were widely considered one of the likeliest teams to invest high draft capital into a running back this year, but the team's decision to only add Gerrid Doaks with their final pick is a clear indication of confidence in Gaskin. A 2019 seventh-round pick himself, Gaskin played a near every-down role in the 10 games he was healthy last season, averaging a respectable 4.1 yards per carry despite playing behind one of the league's worst O-lines. Dynasty managers who bet on Gaskin this offseason should feel justified in patting themselves on the back, as the 24-year-old appears positioned to begin the 2021 campaign as the top option in a three-man committee, accompanied by Salvon Ahmed and veteran Malcolm Brown.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Prior to landing with Miami as a seventh-round draft pick, Gaskin was a workhorse at college in Washington, averaging 236 carries per season across four years and rushing for 1,268 yards in 2018. However, he faces a steep path to regular carries with the Dolphins. The 5-10, 193-pound running back will likely have to beat out Mark Walton and Kenneth Farrow for what projects to be a single roster spot, and even in the event that he cracks the 53-man roster, Kalen Ballage appears to have secured the No. 2 role behind Kenyan Drake.
