Scouting report

ATL RB Wayne Gallman - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 vs Patriots

Wayne Gallman actually saw 15 carries against the Cowboys, mainly due to Atlanta playing their backups in the fourth quarter. In fact, Falcons HC Arthur Smith said the backups got playing time due to the upcoming short week. Gallman may get some more actual playing time, rather than garbage time, on Thursday with Cordarrelle Patterson likely out with a sprained ankle, though Mike Davis will get the first crack. Gallman is a very deep, risky play on a short week.

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.

NYG RB Wayne Gallman - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 at Baltimore Ravens

Wayne Gallman had just nine carries for 29 yards last week against the Browns. The Giants got down 13-3 in the second quarter, and then couldn’t recover, losing 20-6. It was the first time Gallman has had less than 15 touches since early November. Until last week, he was getting a reasonably full workload, and his short-yardage work was making him a high-floor RB2 option in most leagues. Now, with just 21 carries, 86 yards and zero touchdowns over his past two games, it’s a little concerning. Plus, Alfred Morris has been inching his way into more touches, including seven last week.

This week, Gallman faces a Ravens defense that ranks 20th in aFPA to opposing running backs. If Gallman gets back to 15+ touches, he could be worth RB2 consideration again, but with Morris getting more touches than Gallman owners are comfortable with and with the likelihood that the Giants get down early again, he’s risky. We have him ranked as a mid-tier RB3 option this week.

NYG RB Wayne Gallman - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs. Cleveland Browns

Wayne Gallman had 73 yards on 12 carries and three receptions last week in a blowout loss to the Cardinals. He averaged 4.8 yards per carry and likely would’ve put up better numbers had the Giants not fallen behind 13-0 at the half. Gallman has been a high-floor fantasy option, particularly in standard formats, while taking over as the lead back. He has at least 13 touches in each of the last seven games, and has six touchdowns over that span.

This week, Gallman faces a Browns defense that ranks 16th in aFPA to opposing running backs, but got torched for five touchdowns on the ground by the Ravens on Monday night – two of which were from Lamar Jackson, in all fairness. Gallman should get his chances to find the end zone again and should be considered a quality RB2 option, particularly in standard formats.

NYG RB Wayne Gallman - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs. Arizona Cardinals

Wayne Gallman had a great game against a tough Seahawks run defense last week, rushing for 135 yards on 16 carries – aided by a 60-yard carry – in a surprise victory for the Giants. Gallman has really taken over the lead back role since Devonta Freeman went down, and has done an admirable job of it. He’s averaging 4.6 yards per carry on the season and has six touchdowns in as many games.

This week, Gallman faces a Cardinals defense that ranks 18th in aFPA to opposing running backs. Expect another full workload for Gallman, if the Giants defense can keep the Cardinals from running up the score again, making him a high-floor RB2 option in most leagues, especially standard formats, where his lack of work in the passing game won’t hurt his value as much.

NYG RB Wayne Gallman - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 at Seattle Seahawks

Wayne Gallman had a nice game last week against the Bengals with 94 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries. He added three receptions, but ended up with negative receiving yardage. Gallman has been quietly solid filling in for the injured Devonta Freeman, scoring six touchdowns over the past five games.

Gallman has a nice matchup against a Seahawks defense that ranks 20th in aFPA to opposing running backs. If he gets another full workload, he should be in store for quality production. Freeman is expected to miss at least one more game, so fantasy owners should plug Gallman in as a low-risk RB2 option. We have him ranked just inside our top-20 backs this week.

NYG RB Wayne Gallman - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at Cincinnati Bengals

Wayne Gallman has been a touchdown machine in recent weeks with five touchdowns in his past four games, including two against the Eagles before the bye last week. Gallman’s workload has increased significantly as the season has progressed, and he had 18 carries against the Eagles. With Devonta Freeman still out for at least a couple more games, Gallman should continue to get some work.

This week, Gallman faces a Bengals defense that ranks 15th in aFPA to opposing running backs. Also, the Bengals may struggle to put up points with Ryan Finley at quarterback, meaning the Giants may run the ball. Gallman is a sneaky RB2 option this week in a decent matchup with a likely positive game script.
