Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 7 Half PPR Rankings

Myles Gaskin Note

The Dolphins' RB situation has become a fantasy swamp. It seemed as if Gaskin might have regained control of this backfield in Week 5, when he played 69% of the offensive snaps and had 10 catches for 74 yards and two touchdowns. That now appears to have been either a mirage or an opponent-specific gameplan against a Buccaneers defense that's impregnable against the run but can be had through the air. Last week, Gaskin played the same number of snaps as Brown (a 36% snap share for each) and had 5-9-0 rushing and 2-5-0 receiving. Woof. Even with six teams on bye, Gaskin is just a high-end RB3 this week. Ahmed, who at times looks like he has the most juice of anyone in this backfield, played 27% of the snaps in Week 6 and had a season-high seven carries. He's the RB44. Brown has had at least five carries in all five of the games he's played this year, but never more than eight. He's the RB45. I'm not touching any of these guys in DFS.
