Giants RB Devonta Freeman (ankle, out) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and is out for Week 10. He has been placed on injured reserve so Wayne Gallman should hold down the fort for another three weeks.
NYG RB Wayne Gallman - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Dallas Cowboys
Wayne Gallman was held to just six carries and two receptions for 53 yards last week against the Ravens, as the Giants were down 20-3 at the half and finished the game with just 11 rushing attempts. Gallman is splitting touches with Alfred Morris, but still seems to be the lead back. If the Giants can stay in the game, it seems likely he’ll get double-digit touches – but that could be a big if.
This week, the upside is there against a Cowboys defense that ranks 15th in aFPA to opposing running backs. However, Dallas has been playing better lately and the Giants are trending in the opposite direction. Consider Gallman a firm RB3 option, and if you can find someone with a safer workload on a better team, that might be best.
