RB - MIA
Week 17 Outlook
Josh Tolentino of the Athletic is predicting that the Dolphins won’t bring back RB Matt Breida.
Josh Tolentino of the Athletic is speculating that the Dolphins are not expected to re-sign RB Matt Breida. Miami acquired Breida for a fifth-round pick in 2020, but he fell down the RB depth chart early after struggling most of the 2020 season. The 25-year-old RB logged 59 carries for 254 yards along with nine receptions for 94 yards and no touchdowns last year. Breida is currently a free agent and will most likely latch onto another team during the offseason.
Matt Breida rushed 12 times for 86 yards in the Dolphins' Week 15 victory over the Patriots.
Breida didn't receive any targets in the passing game. Salvon Ahmed led the way with 23 carries but Miami ran the ball enough for both backs to receive double-digit touches. Breida's return dropped DeAndre Washington down in the pecking order. It's unclear how this backfield will shake out if/when Myles Gaskin also returns in Week 16. Ahmed currently has the clearest path to fantasy usefulness.
Maimi Dolphins running back Matt Breida has been activated off the reserve/COVID list.
Breida has been cleared before Myles Gaskin and will be in line for an expanded role if the latter is not cleared in time for Week 15. Breida has been a massive disappointment in his time with the Dolphins but could provide sneaky flex value if both Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed are not cleared to play against the New England Patriots.
The Dolphins placed RB Matt Breida on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
This explain his absence from practice on Friday. He'll of course miss the team's Week 13 matchup against the Bengals. Salvon Ahmed and DeAndre Washington are both doubtful, which could thrust Myles Gaskin (IR) into the RB2 mix for fantasy purposes.
RB Matt Breida is dealing with an illness and wasn't seen at Friday's practice.
Breida is dealing with an illness and was absent from practice Friday. Dolphins' HC Brian Flores declined to say if his illness was COVID related. Breida will most likely be questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. RB Myles Gaskin is expected to return, Breida should only be rostered in deep-league formats.
