Giants' Wayne Gallman: Musters up five yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallman rushed once for two yards and caught one of two targets for three yards in Sunday's 34-27 loss to the Jets.

The Giants couldn't get anything going on the ground, and that includes Saquon Barkley (undisclosed), who managed just one yard on 13 carries. Barkley was banged-up during Sunday's loss, but the Giants are optimistic he'll be healthy for Week 12's game against the Bears following their upcoming bye, according to Ryan Dunleavy of the New York Post. If that's the case, Gallman can be left on waivers for fantasy purposes.

Giants' Wayne Gallman: Zero touches in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallman didn't catch his only target in Monday's 37-18 loss to the Cowboys.

Gallman barely saw the field until the Giants were behind by three possessions and the team shut down Saquon Barkley for the night. The third-year pro hasn't been afforded a carry over the last three weeks, and his usage will be minimal as long as Barkley is healthy.

Giants' Wayne Gallman: Catches one pass in Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallman played 13 offensive snaps and caught his only target for a 20-yard gain in Sunday's 31-26 loss to the Lions.

For the second straight week, Gallman didn't receive a single carry. Gallman is strictly Saquon Barkley's backup and won't have any value unless the latter gets hurt again.

Giants' Wayne Gallman: No carries in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallman played Sunday against the Cardinals, but even with Saquon Barkley leaving briefly due to an ankle injury, Gallman did not receive a carry or a target.

This is far from a timeshare, but Gallman has some value as the clear backup if something happens to Barkley. Having said that, the Giants run blocking has been below average this year.

Giants' Wayne Gallman: Cleared by neurologist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallman received clearance from an independent neurologist to play in Sunday's game against Arizona, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Gallman was a full practice participant throughout the week and didn't have a designation on the Giants' final injury report. He'll step in behind Saquon Barkley, who will be returning from a high-ankle sprain.

Giants' Wayne Gallman: Needs clearance from neurologist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallman (concussion) isn't listed on the final injury report, but he'll need approval from a neurologist Friday before he's cleared to play in Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

The Giants expect Gallman to resume his role behind Saquon Barkley, who is set to return from a high-ankle sprain. Barkley anticipates handling his usual hefty workload, but it isn't out of the question for Gallman to see a few extra snaps if he does indeed gain clearance from the independent neurologist.

Giants' Wayne Gallman: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallman (concussion) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Gallman remains in the league's protocol for head injuries, per Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record, but he appears to be nearing the final stages of his recovery. He'll still need to receive medical clearance from an independent neurologist before being available for action. Once healthy, Gallman is set to serve as the No. 2 running back in New York behind Saquon Barkley.

Giants' Wayne Gallman: Limited in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallman (concussion) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Gallman continues to work his way through the league's protocol for head injuries. He's been participating in individual drills since the beginning of the week, but he'll need to receive clearance from an independent neurologist before suiting up in games. With Saquon Barkley (ankle) practicing in full and trending toward playing Sunday versus Arizona, Gallman will be relegated to a reserve role when healthy.

Giants' Wayne Gallman: Takes part in individual drills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallman (concussion) went through individual drills in a non-contact jersey at Monday's practice, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Gallman appears to be a step behind Saquon Barkley, who participated in team drills Monday as he continues to work his way back from a high-ankle sprain. The Giants seemingly expect at least one of the two to return for Week 7 against the Cardinals, considering Javorius Allen and fullback Elijhaa Penny are the only other running backs on the roster. Week 6 starter Jon Hilliman was waived Friday.

Giants' Wayne Gallman: Not playing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallman (concussion) has been ruled out for Thursday's game in New England.

After suffering a concussion this past Sunday versus the Vikings, Gallman had little chance to get through the protocol in time to suit up just four days later. Gallman will join Saquon Barkley (ankle) in street clothes Thursday, leaving Jon Hilliman and Elijhaa Penny to head the Giants' backfield.

Giants' Wayne Gallman: Missing from practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallman (concussion) wasn't spotted Tuesday at the Giants' team facility ahead of practice, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

It's not clear if the Giants will run a true practice or more of a walk-through session, but Gallman will go down as a non-participant on Tuesday's injury report, as was also the case Monday. According to Jordan Raanan of, Gallman is on track to miss the Giants' Thursday night matchup with the Patriots, though coach Pat Shurmur may not officially rule him out until Wednesday. With Saquon Barkley (ankle) also believed to be trending toward a third straight absence, third-string option Jon Hilliman looks in line to draw the start at running back in Week 6.

Giants' Wayne Gallman: Concussion clouds availability
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallman (concussion) was estimated to be a non-participant on Monday's injury report, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

The 25-year-old sustained the concussion during Sunday's loss to the Vikings, so it's no surprise to see him projected as a non-participant Monday. Gallman figures to have a tough time clearing the concussion protocol in time for Thursday's game against the Patriots. Saquon Barkley (ankle) was listed as a limited participant and has a chance of returning this week, which likely will bring an end to Gallman's heavy involvement in the offense, regardless.

Giants' Wayne Gallman: Diagnosed with concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallman won't return to Sunday's game versus the Vikings due to a concussion.

Receiving his second consecutive start in place of Saquon Barkley (ankle), Gallman managed just two carries for 14 yards before departing in the first quarter. Jon Hilliman and Elijhaa Penny will handle RB reps for the remainder of this contest, but with Barkley potentially in line to return Thursday at New England, the duo may not be able to maintain relevance moving forward.

Giants' Wayne Gallman: Suffers potential head injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallman is under evaluation for a concussion during Sunday's game against the Vikings, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

With Saquon Barkley out for a second straight week due to a high ankle sprain, Gallman was getting another start out of the Giants' backfield. If Gallman is diagnosed with a concussion, the team's remaining backs are Jon Hilliman and FB Elijhaa Penny.

Giants' Wayne Gallman: Ready to replace Barkley again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallman (neck) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Minnesota, while teammate Saquon Barkley (ankle) has been ruled out.

Gallman will lead the New York backfield for a second time in as many weeks, albeit with Jon Hilliman and fullback Elijhaa Penny potentially mixing in for some carries. Barkley is ahead of the typical recovery timeline for a high-ankle sprain, but he'll face a steep challenge to make it back for a Thursday night game against New England in Week 6.

Giants' Wayne Gallman: Limited again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallman (neck) was a limited participant at Thursday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Gallman came out of Week 4's dismantling of the Redskins with an injury that coach Pat Shurmur termed "game soreness," per Dan Duggan of The Athletic. Speaking to Salomone on Thursday, Gallman wasn't concerned about his neck issue because he "used to play linebacker in high school." While neither coach nor player are worried about Gallman's status for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Friday's injury report will have the final word. With Saquon Barkley still in recovery mode from a high ankle sprain, Jon Hilliman is the only other healthy running back on the Giants' 53-man roster.

Giants' Wayne Gallman: Starts week as limited participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallman was limited in Wednesday's practice due to a neck injury, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports.

According to Dan Duggan of The Athletic, coach Pat Shurmur referred to Gallman's neck issue as "game soreness" and expressed confidence that the running back would be good to go Week 5 versus the Vikings. The third-year back performed admirably while stepping in for Saquon Barkley (ankle) in the Week 4 win over the Redskins, compiling 118 scrimmage yards and two scores. With Barkley on track to miss at least one more contest, Gallman will carry the load again Sunday if he can shake off his own injury.

Giants' Wayne Gallman: Carries load in win over Redskins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallman carried 18 times for 63 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Redskins. He also caught six of seven targets for 55 yards and another score during the 24-3 win.

Gallman averaged just 3.5 yards per carry against a solid Washington front, but an impactful performance as a pass-catcher allowed him to rack up 118 scrimmage yards. He recorded the opening touchdown of the game on a six-yard reception in the first quarter and added a one-yard rushing score in the second. Gallman filled in admirably for injured teammate Saquon Barkley (ankle) but will face a tough matchup next Sunday at home against the Vikings.

Giants' Wayne Gallman: Set to fill in for Barkley
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With starting running back Saquon Barkley (ankle) expected to miss 4-to-8 weeks, per Adam Schefter of ESPN, Gallman is slated to see an expanded role in the coming weeks.

It's not realistic to expect Gallman to duplicate Barkley's level of effectiveness, but an opportunity is there for him to carve out some fantasy utility while filling in as the Giants' lead rusher, beginning this Sunday versus Washington. For now, Elijhaa Penny is the only other running back on the team's roster, but we'd expect depth to be added in short order.

Giants' Wayne Gallman: Could step into larger role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallman carried five times for 13 yards and failed to catch his only target during Sunday's 32-31 win over the Buccaneers.

Gallman hardly made an impact in this one, but his fantasy value could be on the rise after Saquon Barkley (ankle) left the game and was later seen on crutches. Barkley will be monitored closely over the coming hours, which should yield a more clear diagnosis of the injury. At the very least, Gallman could be in line to start next Sunday's game against Washington.
