    49ers' Wayne Gallman: Joins 49ers backfield

    Wayne Gallman agreed to a contract with the San Francisco 49ers on Wednesday, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.Gallman set career highs in rushing yardage (682) and touchdowns (six) in 15 games for the Giants last season while adding 21 receptions for 114 yards. His increased profile in New York's offense was the result of top back Saquon Barkley (knee) missing most of the 2020 campaign with a torn ACL. With the 49ers, Gallman will compete for a depth role behind Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson, a context that doesn't provide the 26-year-old with a clear path to steady carries in 2021.

    Giants' Wayne Gallman: Escapes disastrous fumble

    Wayne Gallman carried 11 times for 65 yards and was not targeted during Sunday's 23-19 win over the Cowboys.Gallman averaged an impressive 5.9 yards per carry against a beatable Dallas front, but he didn't receive a heavy workload, despite playing from ahead for most of the game. He narrowly escaped a massive error in the final moments of the game when he fumbled in New York Giants territory but somehow managed to recover the ball from the bottom of the pile. Despite the blunder, it was one of Gallman's most productive performances in recent weeks, and he finishes the regular season with a surprising 792 scrimmage yards to go along with six touchdowns. He'll look to retain the role of lead ball carrier in the postseason, if the Eagles can beat Washington on Sunday night.

    Giants' Wayne Gallman: Totals 53 scrimmage yards

    Wayne Gallman registered 27 yards on six carries while corralling both of his targets for 26 yards during Sunday's 27-13 loss to the Ravens.New York fell into a 20-3 first-half deficit, ushering the New York Giants into a pass-heavy game script that consisted of 41 Daniel Jones attempts to 12 total team carries. Gallman toted eight of the Giants' 11 RB touches, exceeding 50 scrimmage yards for the eighth time over his past nine appearances. With a total of six touchdowns since Week 7, Gallman has demonstrated a propensity for getting into the end zone. He's currently shouldering a four-game scoreless streak, however, as the Giants head into a Week 17 matchup against the Cowboys' 32nd-ranked rush defense.

    Giants' Wayne Gallman: Just nine carries in losing effort

    Wayne Gallman rushed nine times for 29 yards in Sunday's 20-6 loss to Cleveland. He was not targeted in the passing game.Gallman had been the New York Giants' workhorse with double-digit carries over the last seven weeks, but the team inexplicably moved away from him in the second half in favor of veteran Alfred Morris. There are currently no reports of the starting tailback suffering any sort of injury, so the decision is a curious one when you consider the alternative options (or lack thereof) at the position. Morris did perform well in his place (seven carries for 39 yards), but most of his damage was done on two draw plays for which the down and distance was so long that the Browns were playing a soft defense to prevent any big passing plays. Perhaps there will be a more concrete explanation issued by head coach Joe Judge, but right now we have to consider a committee approach for the Giants moving forward. That move would sever Gallman's fringe status as a startable fantasy back heading into a matchup against the Ravens on Sunday.

    Giants' Wayne Gallman: Held in check as offense sputters

    Wayne Gallman rushed 12 times for 57 yards and caught three of four targets for 16 yards in Sunday's 26-7 loss to Arizona.Gallman got 12 of the 17 carries by New York Giants running backs, but it was Dion Lewis who got the call from one yard out for New York's lone points of the afternoon. Though Gallman has gone two games without a touchdown after scoring six in his previous five games, he remains locked into the lead role in the Giants' backfield heading into a Week 15 matchup with the Browns.

    Giants' Wayne Gallman: Keeps offense moving

    Wayne Gallman rushed the ball 16 times for 135 yards in Week 13 against the Seahawks.Gallman played a key role in the New York Giants' upset victory, recording the first 100-yard rushing effort of his career. Though he was vultured for a touchdown on each occasion by Alfred Morris, Gallman moved the team down the field on two separate drives in the third quarter with 60- and 23-yard runs. Gallman has now earned at least 15 touches in three consecutive games, and with Devonta Freeman's (ankle/hamstring/illness) status uncertain, he could maintain a prominent role in the offense for the foreseeable future. Gallman and the Giants will draw a Week 14 matchup against the Cardinals.

    Giants' Wayne Gallman: Scores for fifth straight game

    Wayne Gallman carried 24 times for 94 yards and a touchdown while losing three yards on three catches (five targets) during Sunday's 19-17 win over the Bengals.Gallman plunged into the end zone from a yard out in the first quarter to extend his touchdown streak to five games. He surpassed 20 carries for the first time and, although he averaged just 3.9 yards per carry, he achieved a new season high in yardage thanks to the increased volume. Game flow permitting, Gallman should continue to play a large role on offense next Sunday against the Seahawks after Daniel Jones (hamstring) suffered an injury and is in danger of missing the contest.

    Giants' Wayne Gallman: Two trips to end zone

    Wayne Gallman recorded 18 carries for 53 yards and two touchdowns in Week 10 against the Eagles. He added one reception for seven yards.Gallman wasn't particularly efficient, averaging only 2.9 yards per rush. His longest gain of the day came on the New York Giants' first offensive possession, when he ripped off a 17-yard run. However, the majority of his production came on a pair of trips to the end zone from one and two yards, respectively. With Devonta Freeman (ankle) recently placed on injured reserve, Gallman should serve as the Giants' lead back through Week 13. Next up, he and the Giants will be on a bye in Week 11.

    Giants' Wayne Gallman: Primed for more starts

    Wayne Gallman is in line to serve as the New York Giants' lead back for at least two more games, after teammate Devonta Freeman (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.Freeman was hoping to return for Sunday's game against the Eagles but instead will require a longer absence after he aggravated his ankle injury during Thursday's practice. Gallman played 53, 43 and 57 percent of offensive snaps the past three weeks, averaging 12.0 carries, 2.7 targets, 64.4 total yards and 1.0 touchdown per game. He isn't likely to continue scoring a TD each week, but Gallman does appear to be the lead back ahead of Alfred Morris and Dion Lewis.

    Giants' Wayne Gallman: Solid outing in win over Washington

    Wayne Gallman registered 68 rushing yards and one touchdown on 14 carries, adding a nine-yard catch during Sunday's 23-20 win against Washington.Gallman logged double-digit carries and a touchdown for a third consecutive outing during Sunday's victory, while his 4.9 yards-per-carry average from Week 9 marks his best of the three-game stretch (3.5 YPC average Weeks 7 and 8 combined). The Clemson product paced New York's backfield in carries in a run-heavy game script, though he accounted for only 40 percent of the team's total in that category, with seven different New York Giants contributing to a total of 35 team carries. He and Alfred Morris will continue to head up the Giants backfield Week 10 against Philadelphia if Devonta Freeman (ankle) is ruled out again.
