Gaskin has further competition for backfield slotting following the Dolphins' signing of Sony Michel, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN reports.
EDGE Analysis
The Dolphins previously added Chase Edmonds and Raheem Mostert this offseason, while fellow returnee Salvon Ahmed received a contract tender from the team. Collectively, the moves provide first-year coach Mike McDaniel with a deep backfield with which to work, but in terms of Gaskin's fantasy prospects, when all the key RB cogs are available steady volume figures to be an issue for the 25-year-old, who led Miami with 173 carries (for 612 yards) in 17 games last season, while adding 49 catches for 234 yards and recording seven total TDs in that span.

Gaskin may have fallen as low as No.3 on Miami's running back depth chart, with the team having signed Raheem Mostert (knee) on Wednesday and Chase Edmonds earlier in free agency, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
EDGE Analysis
One of new coach Mike McDaniel's top tasks in Miami is revitalizing the ground game, and the team wasted no time in bringing in two experienced and reliable tailbacks. Mostert has already proven an ability to post prolific numbers under McDaniel's scheme, though he is recovering from a serious knee injury, while Edmonds emerged as one of the more effective change-of-pace complements in the league during his Arizona tenure. Gaskin, meanwhile, posted a career-high 612 rushing yards last season but saw Duke Johnson overtake him for the No. 1 gig down the stretch. If Mostert is fully healthy by Week 1, it seems more than possible that Gaskin will only operate in a depth role.

Gaskin had one carry for minus one yards and secured all three of his targets for 11 yards during Sunday's 33-24 win over the Patriots.
EDGE Analysis
Gaskin saw Duke Johnson (25-117-1) overtake the lead role in Miami's backfield down the stretch, while he himself only played 11 percent of offensive snaps during the season finale. With a new coaching staff imminent, the stage would appear set for the Dolphins to re-sign Johnson this offseason and/or bring in further backfield help via free agency or the 2021 NFL Draft. Any such event would cause Gaskins' fantasy value to further dip in dynasty formats, as his chances of beginning the 2022 campaign with a valuable role look increasingly slim. Despite playing a full 17-game slate, Gaskin only finishes 2021 with 173 carries for 612 yards (3.5 YPC) and three scores, to go with 49 catches for 234 yards and four touchdowns on 63 targets.

Gaskin had five carries for 23 yards during Sunday's 34-3 loss to the Titans.
EDGE Analysis
Gaskin also failed to secure his only target, while once again surrendering the lead role to Duke Johnson (seven carries for 49 yards). Though Gaskin was relatively efficient with limited work, he saw slim opportunities for fantasy success on a day in which Tua Tagovailoa fell flat and looked unable to move Miami into scoring range. A regular-season finale against the Patriots could once again position the Dolphins' offense to be stifled, and Gaskin can no longer be considered a lock to receive the bulk of the touches out of the backfield.

Gaskin rushed three times for 10 yards and caught one of three targets for six yards in Monday night's 20-3 win over the Saints.
EDGE Analysis
Gaskin saw his workload decrease for a second straight week, as last game's breakout saw Duke Johnson earn a large role alongside Phillip Lindsay, who returned from injury to play for the first time since Week 12. Although Johnson and Lindsay tied for Miami's team lead with 13 carries apiece, neither tailback topped 40 yards. As a result, it'll be interesting to see how the Dolphins divide their backfield snaps in Week 17 versus the Titans, but considering his dip in usage the past couple games, Gaskin may have to earn back his starter's share while being subjected to a committee approach.

Gaskin rushed 10 times for 54 yards and wasn't targeted in Sunday's 31-24 win over the Jets.
EDGE Analysis
Gaskin was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, so he had limited practice reps heading into this game and thus ceded the majority of the workload to Duke Johnson, who rushed for 107 yards and two touchdowns on 22 attempts. The strong performance from Johnson could prompt the Colts to keep him in a timeshare with Gaskin, if not the lead role, in Week 16 against the Saints.

Gaskin is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jets, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.
EDGE Analysis
Gaskin, along with fellow running back Salvon Ahmed, was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, which sets the stage for the duo to be part of a Week 15 backfield that also includes Duke Johnson. Meanwhile, Phillip Lindsay (reserve/COVID-19 list) and Malcolm Brown (quad/IR-R) are unavailable for the contest. Gaskin thus figures to continue to head the Dolphins' ground game Sunday, a role that resulting in him logging 15 carries for 44 yard and two catches for five yards the last time the Dolphins played, back in a Dec. 5 win over the Giants.

Coach Brian Flores was non-committal about playing Gaskin and fellow running back Salvon Ahmed in Sunday's game against the Jets, though neither is listed on the injury report after returning from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.
EDGE Analysis
Gaskin was on the list for seven days, missing part of Miami's bye and the first two practices this week. He should be able to play Sunday, but it's possible his workload is scaled back, especially if Malcolm Brown (quad) suits up after being designated to return from IR earlier this week. The Dolphins also have Duke Johnson as a backfield option, while Phillip Lindsay (illness) appears likely to miss Sunday's game as he's on the COVID-19 list.

Gaskin (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday and is available to practice, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.
EDGE Analysis
Gaskin landed on the COVID-19 last after testing positive for the virus during Miami's bye week, and he'll return to the active roster without missing any game action. Salvon Ahmed also cleared the protocols, so the Dolphins should have most of their backfield available this weekend against the Jets.

Gaskin has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
EDGE Analysis
Per Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald, because Gaskin is vaccinated, he can come off the list if he has two negative tests at least 24 hours apart. The Dolphins are on bye this week, with the team's next contest scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 19 against the Jets.
