RB: Malcolm Brown

Dolphins coach Brian Flores said Malcolm Brown (quad) will be placed on injured reserve.

Brown started for Miami in Week 7 but played just five snaps before exiting with the quad injury. His absence narrows the backfield to two runners, Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed. Gaskin turned 15 carries into 67 yards with Brown sidelined. Ahmed saw seven carries and was also out-targeted by Gaskin 4-2. It looks like Gaskin will be the lead-back with Brown out for at least three weeks but fantasy managers should proceed with caution. Flores has seemingly chosen a different runner to lean on every week, making this one of the most volatile time-shares in the NFL. Gaskin projects as a low-end RB2 in the heightened role but stands on shaky ground.
