Miami Dolphins running backs Jordan Howard and Patrick Laird should see an increase in touches in an injured backfield as they head into their Week 9 matchups.
Here’s a look at what fantasy owners should be doing about the Dolphins backfield this weekend.
Fantasy Football analysis: Dolphins RBs Jordan Howard, Patrick Laird
Miami’s go-to running back Myles Gaskin was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury, and Matt Breida has been ruled out for Sunday’s game with an injured hamstring leaving Howard to likely be the guy this weekend with potential for Laird to see some touches.
Gaskin and Breida both appeared in last week’s game, a 28-17 win over the Los Angeles Rams, though the Miami rushing attack had just 25 carries for 55 yards in the win. Howard and Laird failed to accumulate a single stat on Sunday.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Howard can be used as a low-end third running back for fantasy purposes, while Laird should remain on all fantasy benches on Sunday.
