The Miami Dolphins will deploy a running back by committee approach in 2021, and running back Salvon Ahmed has shown he deserves to be a significant factor of that committee.

Before starting training camp, running back, Myles Gaskin was looked at as the starting running back.

Gaskin will also have a significant role in the running back rotation, and deservedly so, but free agent running back Malcolm Brown got the start in the first preseason game.
