Wayne Gallman Note

If you've sit down to watch the Giants games over the last few weeks, you'd see that Gallman is trying to do everything in his power to earn the workhorse role on this team, and he's succeeded. He's now scored in four straight contests, including two rushing touchdowns against the Eagles, who had allowed just seven rushing touchdowns in eight games coming into that one. They have only targeted him five times over the last three games, which is a bit worrisome, though the game against the Bengals should be a positive gamescript. While the routes run over the last three weeks have been Dion Lewis 44, Gallman 32, Alfred Morris 13, teams have targeted their running backs just 14.9 percent of the time against the Bengals, which ranks as the third-lowest mark in the league. That's led to them averaging just 3.6 receptions and 26.0 yards per game, so that's not where we should be expecting production. On the ground, however, the Bengals have allowed a massive 5.24 yards per carry. There's just one other team in the league who's allowed more than 4.78 yards per carry. There've been eight running backs who've totaled at least 75 yards on the ground against the Bengals, and that's while they've run the ball just 43.0 percent of the time (hint: that rate will go up moving forward). Gallman has totaled 32 carries over the last two games and is now coming off his bye week with fresh legs. He should be in lineups as a mid-to-low-end RB2 due to his lack of usage in the passing game but should offer a stable floor regardless.
