Myles Gaskin: Dolphins Weapon X in the Passing Game
The Miami Dolphins have a ton of pass catching options on the current roster.
Perhaps too many.
However in today’s NFL, attrition and competition usually thin the herd. The Miami Dolphins offense now possesses newly energetic play calling and a quarterback trending towards high expectations. Some say a quarterback’s best friend is a solid running game. A solid running back who can move the chains through the air might be his best man.
That’s where Myles Gaskin comes in.

Myles Gaskin: Not just a check down guy
The first play on the clip above is a quick three-step drop from Tua Tagovailoa, who is going to Myles Gaskin right away. Then Gaskin quickly turns up the field and scampers untouched for a huge gain, looking effortless in the process.

On this next clip, the pocket breaks down around Tagovailoa, but there is no panic. He steps up and buys time, while Gaskin stacks the linebacker like a receiver would on a corner. One quick 90-degree move later, it’s a house call for Gaskin as he scores the touchdown.
Gaskin tied for the team lead with four receptions Saturday against Atlanta.
Last season while appearing in just 10 games, Gaskin caught 41 passes for 388 yards and two touchdowns.
With a more featured role this season, he should easily surpass those numbers.
Tua Tagovailoa was 8-of-8 in 1st Q. Myles Gaskin was clear lead back with 7 touches for 57 yards, TD. Jaylen Waddle, 3 catches. A lot of presnap motion & quick passing.
A nice successful glimpse of Dolphins new offense albeit against much of Falcons 2nd team D.

A lot of people critiqued the Dolphins for not taking a running back high in the last two drafts. Maybe the organization simply feels they already have a true number one running back in Myles Gaskin, who can hurt teams on any down. It should be interesting to see the running back rotation and how their skill sets are used.
Like Liam Neeson, Myles Gaskin has a very unique set of skills.
Those skills should be put to the test often this upcoming season.
