What the heck just happened?! After being one of fantasy football's most consistent RB2s through the first three weeks of the season, Myles Gaskin was eliminated from the offense in week four to the tune of just 12 total snaps. Without any sort of explanation as to why Gaskin was phased out of the offense, fantasy managers were forced to pivot and bench the talented RB due to the matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. What did Gaskin do though? He jumped back up to 37 total snaps in week five and finished the game with five rush attempts for 25 yards and 10 receptions for 74 yards and two touchdowns! After not scoring a single touchdown throughout the entire season up to that point, Gaskin exploded on virtually everyone's benches, and fantasy managers are left scratching their heads trying to discern what Brian Flores is doing with this backfield. It's encouraging to see Gaskin be so heavily utilized as a receiving option out of the backfield - which is where he shines - but there is a lot of uncertainty surrounding Gaskin and his workload moving forward. To go from just 12 snaps in week four to 37 snaps in week five is a massive swing and there's no guarantee now that that usage remains moving forward. With that being said, Jacksonville is absolutely a matchup where we should consider Gaskin for our starting lineups. The Jaguars simply cannot stop anyone on the ground and the scoring opportunities are going to be there for Gaskin. If Malcolm Brown and Salvon Ahmed are going to remain on the sideline for the majority of the game (just 16 combined snaps in week five) then Gaskin is a rock-solid low-end RB2 this week. That's a big question mark right now though.
