Myles

GASKIN

Maurice Jones-Drew recently ranked Myles Gaskin as the "worst" starting running back in the league heading into next season. That's behind the likes of Mark Ingram, Tevin Coleman, and Devin Singletary. I guess MJD didn't have time to watch the tape. Among all RBs that played in at least 10 games, Gaskin ranked 10th overall, averaging 16.4 fantasy points per game in PPR. He also proved to be a worthy bell-cow for Miami, averaging 18.9 touches per game and playing 69% of the team's offensive snaps. Oh yeah, and that was all while scoring only three rushing touchdowns. The big question you should be asking right now is, "Do I draft Gaskin in the 1st or 2nd round?" I'm delighted to inform you that Gaskin is currently being taken at an ADP of 49.9, right at the back-end of the 4th round. He is an absolute steal with hardly any competition and an improved offensive line. Go get your RB2 and thank me later.
