With a rookie quarterback making his first NFL start, you'd better expect a run-heavy game plan out of the Dolphins, though that may not last as long as they'd like considering the spread on the game. Going into their bye week, Gaskin ranked 13th among running backs in weighted opportunity, and that's only been rising since they started making Jordan Howard inactive. Over their last two games, Gaskin has totaled 43 total touches, which is obviously great for trust in fantasy lineups. Opponents have averaged 26.0 running back touches per game against the Rams, though they haven't had much success, as they've allowed the 10th-fewest points to the position. There have been three running backs who've been able to crack the top-20 against them, and all of them totaled at least 17 touches. It's also worth noting that all three of those running backs came over the first three weeks of the season, while David Montgomery's 69 scoreless yards for 11.9 PPR points were the best performance against them since Week 3. The area where Gaskin may be able to do some damage is through the air, as he's seen at least four targets in every game, and the Rams have allowed the 10th-most fantasy points through the air to running backs. Gaskin is getting enough touches to get into RB2 territory, though his ceiling isn't very high in this matchup. Breida's role has grown in the two weeks that Howard has been inactive, totaling 18 opportunities in the two games combined, which is enough to consider for desperation RB4 potential, though there are likely better options on your roster.
