Game day update: Gallman should continue to get a majority of the running back touches for New York. Morris and Lewis should get opportunities to contribute here and there but all signs point to Gallman maintaining his spot as the RB1.
The New York Giants are back in action after a bye last week, and it looks like they’ll get a fairly soft landing out of their break with a road game against the Joe Burrow-less Cincinnati Bengals. It’s shaping up to be a decent outing for Wayne Gallman, and probably less so for temporary backup Alfred Morris.
Fantasy Football analysis: Giants RBs Wayne Gallman, Alfred Morris
Gallman has been a pretty solid fantasy contributor lately. He had 53 yards on 18 carries in his last game, and he also found the end zone twice. That gives him four games in a row where he scored a touchdown, even though he maxed out at 68 rushing yards in that span. With Devonta Freeman out again this week, Gallman will once again be the Giants No. 1 rusher.
Morris had eight carries for 34 yards in his last game, and he had 67 yards on nine carries the week before that. He’s getting solid work as a backup, but it’s not quite enough to make him an option in fantasy leagues.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Wayne Gallman. Sit Alfred Morris.
