Miami Dolphins running back Matt Breida continued his lackluster season versus the New York Jets in Week 6. Breida rushed the ball six time for 15 yards in the 24-0 victory. There is no reason to believe that Breida is going to turn it around at this point. Myles Gaskin has proven himself to be a reliable lead back for this team. Fantasy owners can go ahead and cut Breida in most formats going forward. He won't have much value against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 8.
Miami Dolphins running back Matt Breida saw a season-high nine carries against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 5. It was a promising outing by Breida who hasn't done much in the Dolphins offense this season. It doesn't sound like his fantasy value is going to get much higher with Myles Gaskin becoming the lead back in Miami. Breida might have some deep league appeal against the New York Jets horrendous defense in Week 6. However, he'll be a risky option in just about every other format.
Miami Dolphins running back Matt Breida saw a higher usage during the Week 5 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Jordan Howard was a healthy scratch, so Breida was promoted to the No. 2 back. Breida saw a season-high nine carries for 28 yards in the victory. He has been horrendous all season long and it's doubtful it ever gets much better for Breida. He's worth dropping in almost all formats at this point.
Miami Dolphins running back Matt Breida had his best performance of the season during the Week 4 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. He rushed three times for nine yards and caught three passes for 39 yards through the air. Sadly, that was his best performance of the season, which is a dud for basically any other player. It's highly unlikely Breida gets much going against the tough San Francisco 49ers run defense in Week 5. Breida will have minimal fantasy value here and should be avoided in most formats.
Miami Dolphins running back Matt Breida continues to struggle to get anything going on the ground this season. He carried the ball three times for nine yards in the Week 4 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. The good news is, Breida caught three passes for 39 yards through the air. The Dolphins use a three-back committee, but Myles Gaskin is the only one that is relevant in fantasy leagues. At this point, Breida can be dropped in most leagues. It's unlikely that he has much value against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 5. Possibly, he could be a desperation flex option in deep leagues, but that is risky.
Miami Dolphins RB Matt Breida ran three times for nine yards in Week 4 against the Seattle Seahawks and he added three receptions for 39 yards on three targets.
Fantasy Spin: Breida will get a crack at his former team in Week 5 when the Fins travel to San Francisco. However, he is only worth a look in the deepest of fantasy leagues for that matchup, as Myles Gaskin is getting a bulk of the backfield touches right now.
Miami Dolphins running back Matt Breida is looking to rebound after his awful performance last week. In Week 3, Breida rushed three times for four yards in the win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Dolphins use a three-back committee, which hurts the value of Breida. It appears Myles Gaskin is the lead back, while Jordan Howard gets a majority of the goal line work. That basically means Breida is the odd man out here. He has become a cut-candidate in almost all formats. Breida has an avoidable matchup against the Seattle Seahawks this week.
Miami Dolphins running back Matt Breida has been having issues finding any momentum through the first three weeks of the 2020 NFL season. He rushed three times for four yards during the Thursday night victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Breida has been horrendous this season and is a cut-candidate in most formats. Myles Gaskin has become the clear lead back in Miami. Breida will still get a few carries each week, but it won't be enough to have value in most formats.
Miami Dolphins running back Matt Breida is not looking like a trustworthy option this season. He has had trouble getting anything going through the first two games of the season. Breida rushed seven times for 37 yards in the loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 2. He's in a three-back committee, which is going to limit his value even more. He'll get a more favorable matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3. However, there is no need to even consider starting Breida unless it's a 14-team deep league.
Miami Dolphins RB Matt Breida (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.
Fantasy Spin: Breida is part of a committee at running back for the Dolphins and has posted only 59 yards in two games. He can be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

S Clayton Fejedelem (pectoral), CB Xavien Howard (knee), DE Shaq Lawson (hip) and WR DeVante Parker (hamstring) were limited.

RB Matt Breida (ankle), WR Jakeem Grant (shoulder), DE Emmanuel Ogbah (ankle), LB Elandon Roberts (concussion) and LB Kyle Van Noy (hand) practiced in full. The Dolphins did not hold a practice Monday, so the report is an estimation.
Miami Dolphins running back Matt Breida has not started the 2020 season the way he wanted to. He wasn't able to get much going during the first week and struggled again in the loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 2. He rushed seven times for 37 yards and caught one pass for two yards through the air. The Dolphins have a three-back committee and Breida appears to be the worst option out of the bunch. He is quickly becoming a cut-candidate in fantasy leagues. Maybe, Breida can bounce back against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3, but probably belongs on the bench.
Miami Dolphins RB Matt Breida carried seven times for 37 yards in Week 2 against the Buffalo Bills and he added a two-yard grab.
Fantasy Spin: Breida split the backfield touches with Myles Gaskin at seven apiece, while Jordan Howard ran five times. Until a clear-cut leader in the backfield emerges, and he might never do so, it's hard to depend on any of these guys for fantasy purposes. The Dolphins travel to meet the Jaguars in Week 3 on Thursday.
Miami Dolphins running back Matt Breida has quickly lost the trust of plenty of fantasy owners after his Week 1 performance versus the New England Patriots. Breida rushed five times for 22 yards in the loss. Jordan Howard received the start and the goal line carries. Myles Gaskin saw nine touches and saw a few targets through the air as well. The Dolphins have a horrendous running back committee that can't be trusted in most formats. It appears Breida could have the least amount of fantasy value out of all three of them. He belongs on the bench in almost all formats during their Week 2 matchup versus the Buffalo Bills.
Miami Dolphins running back Matt Breida was unable to get anything going during the Week 1 loss to the New England Patriots. He finished with 22 rushing yards on five attempts. The Dolphins leaned on Jordan Howard and Myles Gaskin more in the running game. This offense is already pretty bad, so it's going to be tough for Breida to carve out fantasy value. He'll be a risky flex option for Week 2 against the Buffalo Bills.
Miami Dolphins RB Matt Breida rushed for 22 yards on five carries against the New England Patriots in Week 1.
Fantasy Spin: Breida was part of a committee at running back in Week 1 and his role each week may depending on the team's game plan. He can be rostered in fantasy leagues but probably should not be a starting option next week.
Miami Dolphins running back Matt Breida has a new organization, but didn't gain much fantasy value. He's listed as the backup to Jordan Howard, but Breida figures to split the carries with him. Sadly, he'll get an unfavorable matchup against the New England Patriots in Week 1. The Pats allowed the least amount of fantasy points to running backs last season. The Dolphins are likely going to be forced into pass-heavy game scripts quite often, which is bad for their running backs. It remains to be seen how the Dolphins plan to use their new backs. Fantasy owners should consider Breida a low-end RB2 for his first game with Miami.
Miami Dolphins RB Matt Breida is listed as the No. 2 tailback on the depth chart on the club's official website behind RB Jordan Howard.
Fantasy Spin: It's not terribly surprising. Howard will see a majority of the carries, but Breida will see his fair share of touches as well. The former 49ers tailback has proven he can handle the regular touches in an NFL backfield, but he has had trouble staying healthy, and that's an obvious drawback for fantasy owners. Snap him up in the later rounds for depth.
Miami Dolphins RB Matt Breida is expected to receive 35 percent of the touches in the backfield, according to beat writer Cameron Wolfe.
Fantasy Spin: That seems a bit low. Wolfe expects Howard to receive 50 percent, Breida 35 percent and the remaining 15 percent goes to the field. That may be true for rushes, but Howard doesn't catch the ball often, and Breida specializes there. Breida is still a low-end RB3 in PPR.
