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.
