Myles Gaskin Note

Both these running backs were ruled out late in the week, so I'm guessing they both have a shot to play this week, though Gaskin seems like the safer bet. He's also the one who'll likely have the bigger role, so he's the one we really care about. The Bengals have allowed ball carriers 2.46 yards before contact this year, which ranks as the third-most in football. That's led to them allowing a massive 5.07 yards per carry, which ranks as the second-highest mark in football. It'A also good to know that Gaskin has averaged a team-high 2.58 yards after contact. Running backs haven't been targeted much against the Bengals, receiving just a 15.5 percent target share, which ranks as the third-lowest in football. Because of that, they've averaged just 7.1 PPR points per game through the air, which ranks as the fourth-lowest mark in football. There have been nine running backs who've totaled at least 16 touches against the Bengals, and each one of them were able to total at least 87 total yards, while five of them were able to find the end zone. Gaskin had totaled at least 21 touches in each of the last three games he played, and it seems like the Dolphins wanted to hold him out until he was 100 percent, so if he's active, he should probably be in lineups as a high-end RB3 because he does come with a little bit of risk as a running back coming off a multi-week injury. As for Ahmed, he'd likely fall into the 5-10 touch range, though Matt Breida has been used in some sort of role throughout the year, so we really don't know what the split would look like.
