Placed on IR

The Dolphins put Gaskin on injured reserve Tuesday.

Analysis: Gaskin was inactive Christmas Day against Green Bay due to an illness, and he'll now miss the remainder of the regular season after going on IR. There's a possibility that he could return for the AFC Championship Game if Miami advances that far, though Gaskin probably wouldn't have a major role in that scenario. He finishes the regular season with just 37 offensive snaps, carrying the ball 10 times for 26 yards and turning four catches on six targets into 28 yards.

Inactive versus Packers

Gaskin (illness) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Analysis: Given that Gaskin has carried just 10 times for 26 yards through four appearances this season, his absence doesn't have much of a fantasy impact. Salvon Ahmed is on hand to provide backfield support Sunday behind Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson.

Dec 25, 2022 8:43 AM EST

Listed as questionable

Gaskin (illness) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against Green Bay, Rob Demovsky of reports.

Analysis: Gaskin landed on the injury report Friday as a non-participant due to an illness and is considered questionable for the Christmas Day matchup. Jeff Wilson (hip) is also questionable after being limited at practice throughout Week 16 prep, so Miami's backfield depth could be tested against Green Bay. However, Gaskin has rushed only 10 times for 26 yards across 37 offensive snaps in four appearances this season, so his potential absence shouldn't have a major impact on the Dolphins' offensive game plan.

Healthy scratch for Week 14

Gaskin (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Analysis: Gaskin dealt with shoulder and ankle injuries recently but wasn't on the injury report for Sunday's Week 14 tilt. He'll be a healthy scratch against the Chargers, leaving Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson and Salvon Ahmed as the team's three active running backs.

Dec 11, 2022 4:06 PM EST

Back in full Wednesday

Gaskin (shoulder) practiced fully Wednesday, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Analysis: Gaskin was ruled out last weekend against the Raiders after logging a limited session that Friday, but his ability to begin Week 14 prep with full activity levels in practice suggests that he'll be ready to roll for Sunday night's matchup versus the Chargers. If that's indeed the case, it's likely that the 25-year-old won't see much action anyways with Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson impressing the coaching staff as of late.

Dec 7, 2022 4:07 PM EST

Inactive Sunday

Gaskin (shoulder/ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Analysis: Gaskin, who missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning to a limited session Friday, will sit this one out, which paves the way for Jeff Wilson and Raheem Mostert to lead Miami's Week 13 backfield, with Salvon Ahmed in reserve.

Dec 4, 2022 11:42 AM EST

Deemed questionable for Sunday

Gaskin (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the 49ers, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Analysis: Gaskin was sidelined for the first two practices of Week 13 prep due to a shoulder injury, but he returned Friday as a limited participant and is officially questionable for Sunday. However, even if he's available, it's unlikely Gaskin garners a substantial offensive role with Raheem Mostert back in the mix following a one-game absence due to a knee issue.

Dec 2, 2022 12:53 PM EST

Sidelined again Thursday

Gaskin (shoulder) was not present for the Dolphins' practice Thursday, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Gaskin did not practice for the second day in a row after popping up with a shoulder injury on Wednesday's injury report. The 25-year-old will now have just one more chance to increase his practice activity Week 13, or else he'll likely be sidelined for Sunday's game versus San Francisco. Gaskin has been a healthy scratch most weeks in the Dolphins' crowded running backs room this season, though he saw his highest usage of the year with Raheem Mostert (knee) inactive Week 12. If both backs are unable to play, then Salvon Ahmed would be in line for increased touches versus the 49ers.

Dec 1, 2022 12:49 PM EST

Sits out Wednesday's practice

Gaskin didn't practice Wednesday due to shoulder and ankle injuries, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Analysis: With Raheem Mostert (knee) sidelined, Gaskin saw season highs in offensive snaps (24) and rushing attempts (six) during Week 12, but he appears to have picked up a pair of injuries as well. The extent of the shoulder and ankle issues remain unclear, but the backup running back will have two more opportunities to practice before Miami needs to make a decision on his status for Sunday's matchup against San Francisco.

Nov 30, 2022 1:56 PM EST

Still healthy scratch post-deadline

Gaskin (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Bears.

Analysis: Gaskin will be a healthy scratch for a third consecutive game. There was speculation that Gaskin's role may increase in Week 9 after Miami traded Chase Edmonds to Denver, but newly-acquired Jeff Wilson is active, leaving Gaskin out of the mix again. As long as Raheem Mostert, Salvon Ahmed and Wilson are healthy, it seems unlikely Gaskin will be available moving forward.

Nov 6, 2022 9:13 AM EST

Healthy scratch once again

Gaskin (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Analysis: Gaskin will be a healthy scratch for a second consecutive week since the Dolphins' other running backs are all available. Raheem Mostert, Chase Edmonds and Salvon Ahmed will be available out of the backfield Sunday.

Oct 23, 2022 4:13 PM EST

Healthy scratch Week 6

Gaskin (coach's decision) is a healthy inactive for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Analysis: Even though he gained 33 yards on seven touches (four carries, three receptions) and played more snaps (13) than No. 2 back Chase Edmonds (nine) in the 40-17 loss to the Jets in Week 5, Gaskin will find himself in street clothes Sunday. The return of Salvon Ahmed from a one-game absence due to a back injury looks like it might have been enough to bump Gaskin to the inactive list. Gaskin is ahead of Ahmed in the pecking order out of the backfield, but Ahmed's ability to contribute on special teams was deemed more useful than having Gaskin on hand as extra depth behind starter Raheem Mostert.

Oct 16, 2022 9:02 AM EST

Involved in divisional loss

Gaskin had four carries for nine yards and caught three of five targets for 24 yards during Sunday's 40-17 loss to the Jets.

Analysis: Gaskin saw opportunities behind Raheem Mostert after Chase Edmonds was presumably benched due to continued drops, effectively making him Miami's third-down back. It remains to be seen whether Edmonds will be back in the coaching staff's good graces for Week 6's matchup against the Vikings.

Oct 10, 2022 1:29 PM EST

Inactive Sunday

Gaskin is inactive for Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Analysis: With Gaskin the odd man out Sunday, Salvon Ahmed is active and in line to work behind Chase Edmonds and Raheem Mostert in Miami's Week 2 backfield.

Sep 18, 2022 8:50 AM EST

Buried behind Edmonds and Mostert

Gaskin did not log an offensive snap during Sunday's 20-7 win over the Patriots.

Analysis: Gaskin was active Week 1, but his involvement versus New England was limited to five snaps on special teams even with Salvon Ahmed (heel) sidelined. With the Dolphins' rushing engine operating efficiently through Chase Edmonds and Raheem Mostert, Gaskin's only fantasy value at the moment is as a handcuff.

Sep 12, 2022 2:09 PM EST

Practices in full

Gaskin (neck) was a full participant in practice Thursday. Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Gaskin's injury had left him limited in practice earlier in the week, but he should be ready to go Sunday against the Patriots. The fourth-year pro will likely be looking at a limited role, as the Dolphins overhauled their backfield with the additions of Chase Edmonds and Raheem Mostert, pushing Gaskin to No. 3 on team's running back positional depth chart.

Sep 8, 2022 12:36 PM EST

Limited Wednesday

Gaskin (neck) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Gaskin finds himself as one of three Miami running backs who were listed as limited participants Wednesday, leaving Raheem Mostert as the only healthy running back to start the week. The extent of Gaskin's neck injury remains unclear, but it's hard to project what the Dolphins' backfield will look like Week 1 with the majority of their running backs currently nursing injuries.

Sep 7, 2022 2:19 PM EST

Fares well in preseason finale

Gaskin rushed six times for 39 yards in Miami's 48-10 preseason win over the Eagles.

Analysis: Gaskin helped the Dolphins to combine for more than 200 rushing yards against Philadelphia, but chances of securing a spot on the final roster still can't be guaranteed. With Miami having revamped the backfield, all of Chase Edmonds, Raheem Mostert and Sony Michel now seemingly reside above Gaskin on the depth chart. Even if Gaskin does make it through roster cuts, he will only stand to handle a depth role.

Aug 29, 2022 6:36 AM EST

Part of crowded backfield

Gaskin has further competition for backfield slotting following the Dolphins' signing of Sony Michel, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN reports.

Analysis: The Dolphins previously added Chase Edmonds and Raheem Mostert this offseason, while fellow returnee Salvon Ahmed received a contract tender from the team. Collectively, the moves provide first-year coach Mike McDaniel with a deep backfield with which to work, but in terms of Gaskin's fantasy prospects, when all the key RB cogs are available steady volume figures to be an issue for the 25-year-old, who led Miami with 173 carries (for 612 yards) in 17 games last season, while adding 49 catches for 234 yards and recording seven total TDs in that span.

May 10, 2022 3:33 PM EST

Facing crowded backfield

Gaskin may have fallen as low as No.3 on Miami's running back depth chart, with the team having signed Raheem Mostert (knee) on Wednesday and Chase Edmonds earlier in free agency, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: One of new coach Mike McDaniel's top tasks in Miami is revitalizing the ground game, and he wasted no time in bringing in two experienced and reliable tailbacks. Mostert has already proven an ability to post prolific numbers under McDaniel's scheme, though he is recovering from a serious knee injury, while Edmonds emerged as one of the more effective change-of-pace compliments in the league during his Arizona tenure. Gaskin, meanwhile, posted a career-high 612 rushing yards last season but saw Duke Johnson overtake him for the No. 1 gig down the stretch. If Mostert is fully healthy Week 1, it seems more than possible that Gaskin will only operate in a depth role.
