The 2019 NFL Draft is in the rearview mirror, and it’s time for the next part of the NFL calendar. That’s right… massive, rampant speculation! They will go through drills in shorts, and we will endlessly project and prognosticate on their fantasy football futures. There are 78 guys who might have fantasy football relevance after their names were called in Nashville. Our goal with our Fantasy Football Rookie Roundup series is to give you a quick hit on every one of these guys. By the end, you’ll know these guys better than their mothers know them. Because it’s not like their mothers are necessarily good at fantasy football.
There is one thing for certain about the Miami Dolphins in 2019, and that is uncertainty. The roster has no true #1 wide receiver or quarterback. The running back situation should play out with Kenyan Drake starting and Kalen Ballage in a support role. We have no idea how things are going to play out because the head coach is a defensive guy and the OC was a wide receivers coach for the last decade. Into this situation steps one 2019 NFL Draftee who will be fantasy football eligible. Is he worth your time and effort?
Round 7, Pick 234 overall – Myles Gaskin, Running Back, Washington
Myles Gaskin did nothing to impress on tape, other than have decent speed. He turns patience into indecisiveness, and he has serious trouble catching balls in traffic. Gaskin also failed hard at the combine. His only pedigree is getting the ball a ton, and being in college for four years. Because of this, he is the only Pac 12 guy to ever post four seasons of 1,000+ rushing yards. All-in-all, he’s an underwhelming running back prospect in this class of underwhelming running back prospects. If you’re wondering about him in fantasy football, and that wasn’t enough to deter you, then consider the depth chart. There’s zero chance he gets run over either Kenyan Drake or Kalen Ballage. Should Drake go down, Gaskin hits his rookie ceiling as a part-time third down specialist to Kalen Ballage’s banger role. Don’t worry about owning him anywhere in 2019.
