All the worry about Malcolm Brown taking over this backfield in the pre-season was for nothing! Gaskin came out here and proved that he's the RB1 in this backfield against New England. While it was a tough matchup, the snap counts and usage are encouraging signs for Gaskin moving forward. He received 29 total snaps in week one compared to Brown's 16 and Salvon Ahmed's 11. Additionally, Gaskin received an 18.5% target share, which is where the majority of his fantasy value was going to come anyway. There are better days ahead for the young RB and he should still see enough work this week to be viewed as a low-end RB2 in another tough matchup. Otherwise, none of the other Dolphins RBs should be considered for fantasy football.
