Scouting report

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.

NYG RB Wayne Gallman - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Wayne Gallman had a modest 77 yards on 14 carries and one reception last week, but he also found the end zone for the third straight week. While Devonta Freeman has been out, Gallman’s touchdowns have made for quality fantasy production.

Freeman may return this week, and if he does, expect a timeshare at best for Gallman, limiting his fantasy upside. It’s also a tough matchup against an Eagles defense that ranks eighth in aFPA to opposing running backs. If Freeman is out, Gallman’s workload should make him worth considering as a low-end flex option, but if Freeman plays, sit Gallman in a tough matchup with a questionable role.

NYG RB Wayne Gallman - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 at Washington Football Team

Wayne Gallman led the Giants’ backfield in carries with 12 last week against the Buccaneers, but he surprisingly split time with Alfred Morris. Still, Gallman wound up with 62 yards – including an 18-yard reception – and a touchdown filling in for the injured Devonta Freeman.

This week, Gallman should be in for double-digit touches again with Freeman likely to miss another game. He faces a Washington defense that ranks 13th in aFPA to opposing running backs. Assuming Freeman is out again, Gallman should be considered an RB3 option in a below-average matchup. If Freeman surprises and starts, Gallman should be removed from lineups and dropped from shallow leagues.

NYG RB Wayne Gallman - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Wayne Gallman had 34 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries against the Eagles last week, adding 20 additional yards on five receptions. Those are better numbers than fellow backfield mate Devonta Freeman had, but 3.4 yards per carry still doesn’t inspire much confidence. Gallman is worth speculatively adding to the back end of deep-league rosters, but until we see him take the lead job officially, it’s hard to trust him. He’s especially a bad start against the Buccaneers fearsome run defense that just stifled Josh Jacobs a week ago. Sit him.

NYG RB Wayne Gallman - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at Philadelphia Eagles

Wayne Gallman saw just 8% of the snaps last week and didn’t get a carry. He’s a complementary back to Devonta Freeman right now, and until that changes, he’s no better than a bad handcuff. Fantasy owners should leave him on waivers.

NYG RB Wayne Gallman - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Washington Football Team

Wayne Gallman had five carries and a pair of receptions for 24 yards last week against the Cowboys. He was the change-of-pace back behind Devonta Freeman, a role that seems likely to continue after playing it three weeks in a row now. Until he gets more work, he’s really not worth rostering. Even rostering him as a handcuff is dicey, since the last time the Giants’ starter went down, they went to the street to sign their starter.

NYG RB Wayne Gallman - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 at Dallas Cowboys

Wayne Gallman had six carries for 45 yards last week against the Rams. However, he saw just 15% of the team’s offensive snaps after seeing 35% the previous week. It seems like this is Devonta Freeman’s job for now, and fantasy owners should ignore Gallman until that changes. The Cowboys rank 10th in aFPA to opposing running backs, so even if we had confidence in Gallman’s workload, it would be hard to recommend starting him this week.
