Myles Gaskin (born February 15, 1997) is an American football running back for the Miami Dolphins of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Washington.
Gaskin was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the seventh round, 234th overall, of the 2019 NFL Draft, the last of 25 running backs taken and the second by the Dolphins. In Week 16, in the 38–35 overtime victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, he scored his first career touchdown on a two-yard run. He was placed on injured reserve on December 24, 2019. He appeared in seven games as a rookie and recorded 133 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown to go along with seven receptions for 51 receiving yards.
In 2020, Gaskin started the season as backup to Matt Breida and Jordan Howard. In his first career start in Week 3, he had a career-best 95 yards from scrimmage in a victory over Jacksonville. In Week 6, Gaskin had 49 yards on the Dolphins’ second series, en route to 126 yards from scrimmage in a 24-0 win over the Jets. He was placed on injured reserve on November 5, 2020, with a sprained MCL.

In Week 16 against the Las Vegas Raiders, Gaskin rushed for 87 yards and recorded 5 catches for 82 yards and 2 touchdowns one being a 59-yard reception from Ryan Fitzpatrick during the 26–25 win.
Gaskin was the starter for most games in Miami’s 2021 season but carried 5 or fewer times in six of them. His 846 yards from scrimmage was second on the 9-8 team to Jaylen Waddle, but splitting carries with Duke Johnson the Dolphins struggled to an NFL-second-worst 3.5 yards per rush. Bright spots included 10 catches for 74 yards and 2 touchdowns in a Week 5 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and 89 yards rushing with a receiving touchdown in a Week 15 win over the New York Jets.
