For the second game in a row, the Miami Dolphins will likely take the field without their normal starter under center. That will put added emphasis on the ground game to carry the offense against a quality opponent, the Baltimore Ravens.
Fantasy Football analysis: Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin
After a quiet start to the 2021 season, Myles Gaskin has become a focal point of the Dolphins offense the past three weeks. The third-year running back has seen his touches surge during the span, averaging nearly 16 carries and five targets over that span. While the boosted production hasn’t made him a fantasy superstar, he suddenly has a lot more value in all formats.
With Tua Tagovailoa expected to spend Thursday as the Dolphins emergency backup quarterback, Gaskin should again see a surplus of touches. Against a Ravens defense that yields an average of 80.5 yards and a touchdown on the ground and another 58.5 yards through the air to running backs, Gaskin looks like a decent bet to deliver another fine outing.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Myles Gaskin as a low-end RB2.
