No practice again. Trouble.

Wonder if Breida a sneaky pickup with Gaskin probably inactive or eased in.

Ahmed window could close quickly.

Salvon Ahmed (shoulder) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice.

It's the second straight missed practice for Ahmed, who was also sidelined on Wednesday. He previously out-snapped Patrick Laird 43-17 in Week 10 as Miami's workhorse but may have to cede that role to either Matt Breida or Myles Gaskin, the latter who is eligible to return from injured reserve on Sunday. Ahmed's participation at Friday's practice will be key.

Same boat and wondering if Breida is a one-week potential start. I have Gaskin on the bench. Not sure if Breida is an upgrade over the likes of Gallman or Montgomery at RB #2 hopefuls, but he could be a top play this week Wondering if Gaskin suits up this week, or next. 

Breida doesn't ever seem to do much when given the chance, but with Gaskin on my bench and that MIA schedule I'm tempted to grab him just to own this backfield and at minimum block my opponent who as all kinds of injury gaps to fill.

Dolphins RB Salvon Ahmed (shoulder) is doubtful for Week 13 against the Bengals.

The Dolphins could be extremely thin in its backfield since DeAndre Washington (hamstring) is also considered doubtful while Matt Breida is reportedly battling an unknown illness (and didn't practice Friday). If Myles Gaskin (knee) is activated on Saturday, we imagine he would handle a vast majority of the team's workload since only Patrick Laird would be listed behind him. It's also still unclear whether Tua Tagovailoa (thumb) will start Sunday.

It's a bad start to the week for Ahmed, who missed Week 13. DeAndre Washington (hamstring) also remained sidelined while Matt Breida is still on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Myles Gaskin could have the Miami backfield to himself again in Week 14.

Salvon Ahmed (shoulder) is questionable for Week 15 against New England. 

Ahmed is trending toward suiting up against the Patriots. He could resume lead-back duties if Myles Gaskin remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list. If Ahmed and Gaskin can't go, it'll again be DeAndre Washington taking the lead back role for Miami. Ahmed would be a low-end RB2 play if he's active and Gaskin is not.

Dolphins RB Salvon Ahmed (shoulder) is active for Week 15 against the Patriots. 

He's the only one. With a biblical wave of injuries at wideout, Ahmed figures to be needed for heavy work in his return, putting him in the low-end RB2 mix. DeAndre Washington and perhaps a returning Matt Breida will mix in while Myles Gaskin remains on the COVID-19 list.

I don't know how you play any Miami RB today. 

Ahmed just back from injury, Breida back off Covid, D. Washington led the team in touches last week and in the mix.

No indication whatsoever on any of them.

And Miami is down key offensive weapons going up against NE.

Stay. Away.

Salvon Ahmed rushed 23 times for 122 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 15 win over the Patriots, adding a five-yard reception. 

The 100-yard day on the ground was the first by any Dolphins rusher in 31 games, Kalen Ballage in Dec. 2018. Don't you just love history? Ahmed was a sight for sore eyes in a backfield that had been running low on healthy bodies. He keyed a 42/250/3 rushing day that included a pair of short-yardage scores from Tua Tagovailoa. Myles Gaskin's (COVID-19) likely Week 16 return will throw Miami's running back group back into flux for the fantasy finals, but at least as of today, Ahmed will be the best roto play. No plans can be made until we learn Gaskin's status.

Wish I hadn’t stayed away. Difference between week 16 championship and the consolation game.

Salvon Ahmed rushed six times for 29 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 17 loss to the Bills, adding another three catches for 19 yards.

Ahmed emerged from the shadows to be the team's lead ball-carrier multiple times this season, securing the second-most rushing yards on the team with 319 and contributing three touchdowns on the ground. It is very possible the undrafted free agent does not see the same amount of opportunity in 2021, but Ahmed did show NFL-caliber talent and could be a name we hear from again as a fill-in option next season.

With Miami not getting a RB in the draft, potential is there for Salvon Ahmed to get some carries behind Gaskin. I wonder if Miami plans to bring in one of FAs that's still available?

Some dude slipped him by for a buck at auction in our league and I was so sure Miami was going to go after at least a retread RB that I didn't bother matching. Big mistake. At that price, why not take a flier? It's not like Gaskin didn't miss about three weeks last year.

Started a whopping 4 games for Miami, STARTED not relieved so Gaskin seems to allow for others to get quality time on the field. 

4.3 ypc vs Gaskin getting something around 4/4.1 and then 14 targets, 11 catches for Ahmed, close to 400 yds an 3 TDs on 86 touches, i would expect to see more of him in 2021 since Miami didn't really draft anyone of note.

In one of Ahmed's starts, he was the highest rated player on offense by PFF. He hits the hole fast, but Gaskins is a better receiver.  Malcolm Brown, Jordan Scarlett and the rookie, Garrid Doaks, are vying for backups as possible short yardage, special teams duty. Scarlett probably gets cut, as he had pass protection problems at Carolina and wasn't a good receiver at UF.  Brown's contract is fully guaranteed.

Guess he's making the team.

It's only $1.75m. it helps him, but not a crazy amount to eat if Doaks looks better as the big back.
