RB - SF
The 49ers signed former Giants RB Wayne Gallman to a one-year contract on Wednesday.
Gallman visited San Francisco on Tuesday and ultimately reached an agreement on a one-year deal with the 49ers on Wednesday. He rushed for 682 yards on 147 carries and six touchdowns while hauling in 21 receptions for 114 yards across 15 games for the Giants in 2020. Gallman will join a crowded backfield that includes Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson. The 26-year-old is currently 73rd among all running backs in the latest expert consensus draft rankings and is mainly an option in deep-league formats.
Field Yates of ESPN reports that Wayne Gallman is visiting the 49ers.
Gallman had to step up for the injured Saquon Barkley. He rushed for a career high 682 yards and six touchdowns in 2020. He also caught 21 passes for 114 yards but no touchdowns. If the 49ers would opt to sign Gallman, he would be joining an already crowded RB room. He wouldn't have much, if any, fantasy value in that scenario.
Giants running back Wayne Gallman rushed 11 times for 65 yards and was not targeted in the passing game in Sunday's win over the Dallas Cowboys.
Gallman emerged as a viable NFL running back in 2020 thanks to the injuries to Saquon Barkley and Devonta Freeman. He finishes the year with 147 rushing attempts for 682 yards and six touchdowns while catching 21 passes for 114 yards.
Giants running back Wayne Gallman rushed six times for 27 yards and caught his only two targets for 26 yards in Sunday's loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
The Giants ran the ball just 12 times against 41 passes on Sunday, limiting Gallman's usage and effectiveness. Over his last two games, Gallman has just 15 carries for 56 yards.
Giants running back Wayne Gallman rushed nine times for 29 yards and was not targeted in the passing game in Sunday's loss to the Cleveland Browns.
The Giants couldn't do much of anything on offense on Sunday, and Gallman was no exception. Things will not get much easier next week against a tough Ravens defense, but the Giants should at least be getting Daniel Jones back at quarterback.
