RB - MIA
This Week Outlook
Salvon Ahmed rushed six times for 29 yards and a touchdown, including 19 yards through the air in the Dolphins' 56-26 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
Ahmed worked his way into the Dolphins' running back rotation in his rookie campaign and will compete for the starting role with Myles Gaskin heading into the 2021 season. Ahmed finishes his season with 380 total yards and three touchdowns across six games.
Salvon Ahmed rushed six times for two yards in the Dolphins' Week 16 win over the Raiders, adding one catch for a gain of one.
It was a dreadful performance that came in the fantasy championship of all weeks. Ahmed was wildly out-produced by backfield mate Myles Gaskin, who totaled over 160 yards and two touchdowns on the evening. Ahmed will be off the fantasy radar for a Week 17 matchup with the Bills.
Salvon Ahmed rushed 23 times for 122 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' 22-12 Week 15 win over the Patriots, adding one reception for a gain of five.
This was the first time a Miami RB has rushed for over 100 yards in two years. This was certainly the best game of Ahmed's season, and one has to figure he'll lead the backfield in touches come Week 16. Myles Gaskin (COVID-19) could be back, however, so fantasy managers will need to monitor his status before we deem Ahmed a surefire RB2.
Dolphins RB Salvon Ahmed (shoulder) is officially active for Week 15 vs. the Patriots.
Ahmed is back after missing a couple weeks with the injured shoulder. It’ll be interesting to see the split at RB for the Dolphins, but Ahmed will likely see the majority of the carries. This Dolphins offense is short-handed today, as they’ll be missing DeVante Parker, Mike Gesicki, and Jakeem Grant.
Dolphins RB Salvon Ahmed (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 15 against the Patriots.
Ahmed appears to be trending towards playing for the fantasy semi-finals, and he could be in line for a big workload if Myles Gaskin remains on the league's reserve/COVID-19 list. DeAndre Washington would once again be next in line for the start if both Ahmed and Gaskin can't suit up.
