2021 Half PPR Draft Rankings

Myles Gaskin Note

It was shocking to see the Dolphins pass on running back after running back, especially considering all the picks they had in this year's draft. This is great news for Gaskin, who racked up 183 touches in just 10 games last year. Crazy, right? His 18.3 touches per game ranked ninth among running backs. Opportunity is everything, and if he gets that type of opportunity again in 2021 while playing in all the games, he's going to finish as a top-15 running back. The only difference is that the Dolphins added Malcolm Brown in free agency, which could lead to him siphoning some targets away from Gaskin, which would be less than ideal. As of now, Gaskin should probably be considered a solid RB2, though landing him as your RB3/flex would be even better based on the small sample size we have from him in a big role.

He's kind of gone under the radar this offseason, though it's odd because of how well he played when given the opportunity last year as Myles Gaskin's primary backup. He tallied 63 total touches, 291 total yards, and two touchdowns in the three games he played a big role, which is certainly enough to be started in fantasy. Worst case scenario is that he's a handcuff to Gaskin, who hasn't proven the ability to remain healthy in a workhorse role.

Brown's a role player, plain and simple. The Dolphins are going to give him touches; you don't sign a player for nearly $2 million to have him fourth on the running back depth chart. With that being said, he's not a sleeper candidate or anything, but rather someone who takes away some of the upside of players like Myles Gaskin.
