Took a flyer on him for free on Sunday morning and I'm glad I did.  RB's are dropping like flies and if he holds his current volume this guy will be a nice asset as depth or a trade filler for a RB needy team.


poor mans ekeler or James white type with more rushing work. Dolphins offense will improve after 2 tough matchups

He was great in college, and then had a slightly down SR year.  I liked what I saw out of him at Washington and then when the draft came around was surprised where he went.  He didn't flash much last year, but then didn't really have much of a chance to.  He easily looked like the best back when he came in.  It was a very noticeable difference.   He also was involved in the passing game which was a nice bonus. I'm trying to stash everywhere I can.

He will always have a soft spot for beating Dwayne Washington out of a job. I hate that dude so much.

Well, Gaskin is my CMC fill in for the next 4-6 weeks. I’m sure I’ll barely even notice a difference...

I just spit coffee all over my laptop.  Where can I send the bill?

Seriously though, you could do worse on the waiver wire if you missed out on the big names this week.

Looks like he's slightly breaking out but it's still a RBBC mess. Definitely a flex player that serves a purpose on rosters that are truly beaten up. 

The interesting thing is, it’s not really an RBBC mess. He got 63% snap count and 65% snap count. While that isn’t bellcow like numbers it’s honestly damn close in the modern NFL. Obviously, the carries haven’t been there but I think snap count is the best indicator long term of the split.

I’ll probably roll him out this week. I honestly think he’s the best start out of every single RB that’s been picked up from the wire lately other than McKinnon. Short week and against a team that likely isn’t to put you in a huge hole can present nice running opportunities. Something like 12/60 and 5/35 seems really possible with an outside chance at a TD.

Probably gonna make my lineup this week in a free league. 

 

Haven't gotten to watch the dolphins games so not sure if he is getting so much run because of injuries to Howard and breida or because he is the preferred back. 

I'm starting him this week to due injuries. But he is good and been out playing both Howard and brieda

He looks to have a safe floor, and a shot at 15+ with a TD. Why isn't he more hyped? Back to back weeks of 65%~ snaps. Main back in MIAMI. 

 

 I think the concern is the TDs, Howard seems to be their preferred goal line back for now.

Howard is a bonafide bum and while Breida is solid he isn’t built to handle a lot of work. Also, they’ve been healthy Gaskin has just been better.

The coaching staff had a lot of positive to say about him throughout training camp. If Breida were to go down I’d say there’s some RB2 potential.

Dobbins feels like an afterthought now.

This is all Gaskin Robbin' touches from JoHo and Brieda going forward.

If he finds enough relevance to make it in my starting lineup this year, I'm anointing him '31 Flavors'.
