Is the Breida the play here the next couple weeks? Is he startable? Haven't been following this offense much to know what things might look like with Gaskin out.

Doesn't seem like great matchups but Howard has been inactive lately and gaskin was getting most of the touches.

Seems like Breida this week.  Washington can’t clear protocol before Sunday unless he has been tested positive in the last 90 days. Howard has been inactive and can’t see more than a handful of touches. 

Why would Washington have to clear protocol? He wasn't a free agent. He was traded from KC.

If Gaskin adheres to his timeline, he will miss games against the Cardinals, Chargers and Broncos before returning in Week 12 against the lowly Jets. However, it's unlikely he will simply slide back into his old role at that point, making him an uncertain hold in 10-12 team leagues.

Not sure about this tbh.

He is 100% a hold. Ridiculous comment to make by rotoworld. He has been fantastic and should remain the guy. Not like they brought in some stud rb to compete with.

But Bell was released and signed as a free agent.


yeah not 100% sure. But This ESPN Article states that “it's extremely unlikely that a player acquired in a trade will be able to play the week he's acquired. A player coming in from another team must, by rule, undergo a full battery of COVID-19 testing by his new team before he can enter the building. That means five consecutive days of negative tests and then a negative point-of-care test on the morning of the sixth day.”

If Breida plays well the next 3 weeks he's going to earn more touches going forward.  Gaskin is a hold, but this certainly hurts his ROS value, even when he returns.

The rule is that a traded player has to have five negative tests so essentially six day waiting period like Bell.  The only exception is if a player has tested positive within the last 90 days then they can play immediately.

 

The player from the Titans that was traded had tested positive so he cleared immediately under the CBA approved Covid protocols.

This sounds a lot like the talk about Kareem Hunt when Chubb got hurt. No guarantee any other MIA RB does anything worthwhile these next 3 weeks.

No guarantee they don't either.  Look at Mike Davis...coach came out and said he's earned more playing time.

Yup, called that one.  Hopefully Breida is going to get 15 touches in the mean time, but see what happens.  I knew when they landed Washington today, it was a sign.

I don’t think we can kiss goodnight to GasCan quite yet, right?

 

isnt the point that Breida would have received more work in the first place if he was more effective/viewed more highly by the  staff?

 

I do agree it’s terrible timing though considering he was almost guaranteed to get 20+ carries/targets a game. Not many can claim that

Check out the Dolphins reddit page, they actually want to see Breida finally get some consistent run.

Outside of volume, Gaskin is quite average and doesn’t have much ability in the open field.

Still hard to get too excited given the subpar play of the o-line in run blocking but at least Breida has homerun ability.  His knock will always be that he is made of glass.
