Salvon Ahmed Note

It seems that Gaskin returned to practice early this week, which creates some question marks if he were to return. Do they give him his old role back, or do they ease him back into the offense considering Ahmed has played well? The Jets have allowed a massive 30.2 points per game to their opponents this year, so we must find out where those points are going. Running backs have averaged just 4.17 yards per carry against the Jets, which is below the league average, though it helps to feel confident starting a running back against them when you know the touches will be there. They've faced a massive 29.7 running back touches per game this year, which comes from constantly being in negative gamescripts. From an efficiency standpoint, the Jets have allowed the 15th-fewest fantasy points per weighted opportunity. Ahmed has totaled 33 of the 39 available carries for Dolphins running backs the last two weeks, while seeing seven of the nine available targets. That's serious workhorse material. It's eerily similar to Kalen Ballage against them last week, as we had a workhorse-type running back filling in for the starter against the Jets, though he somewhat failed to live up to expectations. Ahmed is locked into enough touches with Gaskin out of the lineup to start as a low-end RB2. If Gaskin returns, then we are likely stuck choosing between these two in what's likely a timeshare where they'd both be RB3-type options with risk attached.
