Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Gaskin continues to receive enough touches in this offense to be viewed as a safe start every single week. Against this defense, he gets a slight downgrade, but he should still be viewed as a solid RB2 start.MVS failed to bring in any of his four targets last week in a fine matchup. Against the Vikings corners, MVS has low-end FLEX appeal, but he should be avoided if you have the chance.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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.He's been targeted deep 14 times this year, which ranks as the third-highest mark in the league. Why haven't his numbers been bigger then? Well, he's caught just three of them. Despite lacking other options in the offense, his targets and performance have slowly been declining. He's still seen at least four targets in every game, so there's always a chance he blows up with Rodgers. It also doesn't hurt that he's playing against the Vikings team who he had his best performance of the season against back in Week 1 when he totaled 4/96/1 on six targets. Cameron Dantzler is the cornerback he'll see much of the time in coverage, a rookie who's allowed 316 yards and four touchdowns on just 37 targets in coverage. The Vikings have allowed a total of 11 receivers to hit double-digit PPR days, so Valdes-Scantling is someone you can consider playing as a boom-or-bust WR5 if you're looking for a ceiling.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Rams are 9th against fantasy running backs, Gaskin is a low-upside RB2 this week.
