Wayne Gallman showed flashes of potential as a rookie last year, averaging 4.3 yards on 111 carries. Gallman also caught 34 passes and seems better-suited than Jonathan Stewart for change-of-pace touches. He has no chance of winning a starting job over first-round rookie Saquon Barkley, but he could have some deep value in PPR formats if he can distinguish himself in the passing game.
The Giants will likely lean on Barkley in the run game, and barring an injury, that may not leave much work for Gallman or anyone else in the New York backfield. Stewart will also be in the mix, even if an injury occurs, limiting Gallman’s upside.
2018 Bottom Line
Gallman has some potential if he can continue to develop as a pass-catcher, but unless an injury happens to Barkley, there’s no reason for him to be on a fantasy roster. He should stay on waivers through most drafts.
