Gaskin is expected to miss the Dolphins' next three games due to a sprained MCL, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
EDGE Analysis
Gaskin has been the team's top RB by a long shot this season, combining for 585 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns on 130 touches through seven games. His work on the ground has been modest (3.9 YPC), but he also has gathered in 30 of 35 targets (86 percent catch rate). With such a void to fill in the backfield, Miami dealt for DeAndre Washington before Tuesday's deadline. Washington will join healthy bodies Matt Breida, Patrick Laird (ankle), Lynn Bowden, Jordan Howard and Salvon Ahmed in the backfield.

Gaskin rushed 18 times for 47 yards and a touchdown and brought in three of six targets for 16 yards in the Dolphins' 28-17 win over the Rams on Sunday. He also lost a fumble.
EDGE Analysis
Gaskin struggled for running room against the Rams' typically accommodating run defense, but he helped fantasy managers with his one-yard touchdown run late in the second quarter. That score atoned for a lost fumble, the first of Gaskin's career, earlier in the period. The 2019 seventh-round pick now has logged double-digit carries in five straight games, leaving no doubt as to his leading status in Miami's backfield. He'll look put together another productive performance versus the Cardinals in Week 9.

Gaskin carried the ball 18 times for 91 yards and caught all four of his targets for 35 yards in Sunday's 24-0 win over the Jets.
EDGE Analysis
Both the 91 rushing yards and 126 scrimmage yards were career highs for the second-year back, as Miami spent much of the second half burning clock after taking a 21-0 lead into halftime. Gaskin has a firm hold on the No. 1 job in the Dolphins' backfield, and his role is unlikely to change following the team's Week 7 bye.

Gaskin carried 16 times for 57 yards and a touchdown while adding 34 yards on five catches (five targets) during Sunday's 43-17 win over the 49ers.
EDGE Analysis
Gaskin struggled to the tune of 3.6 yards per carry but still managed to come through with his second-highest totals of the season in carries and rushing yards. He scored a one-yard touchdown in the first quarter and rounded out his performance with five receptions for the third time in the last four games. Gaskin's yardage totals aren't elite, but he's received 61 touches over the last three games and could get a few more chances in the red zone moving forward for a surprisingly productive Dolphins offense. Gaskin will look to build on this effort next Sunday against the Broncos.

Gaskin could be set for a larger role, particularly in the red zone, with backfield mate Jordan Howard (coach's decision) inactive for Sunday's Week 5 tilt against the 49ers.
EDGE Analysis
Gaskin has already logged 14 red-zone rushes through four games, but he may be set for an even larger role than usual with Howard out, that is if the Dolphins offense manages to put him in position frequently enough against a tough 49ers defense. Gaskin is averaging 12.0 rushes per contest and 4.0 yards per carry thus far, but he'll be challenged against a San Francisco unit tied with the Seahawks for least fantasy points per game allowed per game in standard formats (10.0) to running backs.

Gaskin rushed 10 times for 40 yards and brought in three of four targets for 22 yards in the Dolphins' 31-23 loss to the Seahawks on Sunday.
EDGE Analysis
Gaskin once again served as the unquestioned lead back after logging a career-high 22 carries in Week 3 win against the Jaguars, but game script helped cap his overall workload. However, all signs point to the second-year back being the odds-on favorite for pacing the backfield in carries for the time being, and he's the only one of the trio of himself, Matt Breida and Jordan Howard to post double-digit rushes in a game this season. Gaskin will look to see more opportunities on the ground in a Week 5 road matchup against the 49ers.

Gaskin rushed 22 times for 66 yards and brought in all five targets for 29 yards in the Dolphins' 31-13 win over the Jaguars on Thursday.
EDGE Analysis
Through the Dolphins' first two games, the backfield wealth was essentially spread amongst Gaskin, Matt Breida and Jordan Howard, with no clear-cut lead back. That clearly changed for at least one game Thursday, as Gaskin outpaced his aforementioned teammates by 19 carries each and also co-led the team in both receptions and targets. The second-year back wasn't anywhere near as efficient on the ground as during the first two games of the season, when he averaged 5.4 yards on his 16 rushes. However, the boost in volume on the ground was certainly a welcome sight for Gaskin's fantasy managers, who now have reason to hope the Washington product could be headed for a true workhorse role moving forward that also includes a solid pass-catching component. Gaskin will look to make good on that potential in a Week 4 home date against the Seahawks on Sunday, Oct. 4.

Gaskin rushed seven times for 46 yards and brought in six of seven targets for 36 yards in the Dolphins' 31-28 loss to the Bills on Sunday.
EDGE Analysis
The Dolphins' backfield touches were once again spread fairly evenly among Gaskin, Matt Breida and Jordan Howard, but it was Gaskin who had the clear overall lead in total touches. That was thanks to the second-year back's expanded receiving role, which saw him check in third in receptions and fourth in targets on the day. Breida is also a capable pass catcher, so he could certainly see an expanded role in that capacity in future weeks as well, but Gaskin has encouragingly been a focal point over the first pair of games by garnering double-digit touches in each contest. The University of Washington product will look to boost his production again in a Week 3 road matchup against the Jaguars on Thursday night.

The Dolphins intend to utilize all of Gaskin, Jordan Howard and Matt Breida out of the backfield going forward, Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
EDGE Analysis
Though Howard started Sunday's season-opening loss to the Patriots, Gaskin served as Miami's clear lead back during the contest. The second-year pro led Miami's backfield in terms of carries, targets and yards, though Howard did score the team's only touchdown. Matt Breida matched Gaskins' 4.4 yards per carry, but on four less attempts. It looks as though the Dolphins' backfield split could change on a weekly basis depending on who stands out in practice, a scenario which would cause headaches for fantasy managers, but Gaskin could solidify his lead with another strong showing Week 2 against the Bills.

Gaskin rushed nine times for 40 yards and caught all four of his targets for 26 more in Sunday's 21-11 loss to New England.
EDGE Analysis
Gaskin surprisingly led Miami in both carries and yards on the ground, with Jordan Howard rushing eight times for seven yards and a touchdown and Matt Breida rushing five times for 22 yards. Gaskin also tied for the team lead in catches. Howard's struggles have opened the door for Gaskin to take over as the team's lead back, and he'll have a chance to solidify that role in Week 2 against the Bills.
