Atlanta Falcons
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Gallman is coming off of his best season as a pro, racking up 682 yards (at 4.6 yards per carry) and six touchdowns as a regular starter after Saquon Barkley went down due to injury early in the year. The Giants let the four-year veteran walk in free agency, and San Francisco scooped him up this offseason to compete for a reserve spot behind presumed starting running back Raheem Mostert. Though Gallman didn't make the cut there, he was quickly scooped up by Atlanta in early September to back up Mike Davis. Read Past Outlooks

Healthy scratch again

Coach's Decision
September 19, 2021
Gallman (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 2 divisional matchup against the Buccaneers.
ANALYSIS
The journeyman back will be a healthy scratch for the second time in as many games to open the season. Mike Davis and Cordarrelle Patterson once again should handle the bulk of backfield work for Atlanta against a notoriously stingy Buccaneers run defense.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
2018
2017
A fourth-round pick in 2017, Gallman has hung around as Saquon Barkley's primary backup, but with Dion Lewis in the fold, he's now third string. As such, Gallman will rarely see action so long as Barkley is healthy. Should Barkley go down, Gallman would split carries with Lewis, but Lewis would be on the field for most passing downs.
Gallman predictably had a modest role in 2018 behind all-world running back Saquon Barkley, with only 51 carries and 14 catches. Gallman's efficiency was poor on those chances - only 3.5 yards per carry and 6.4 yards per reception with one TD on the year. At 6-0, 210 and with 4.60 speed, Gallman is just an average athlete, and this year he'll have to hold off newly-acquired Rod Smith to keep his backup job.
Gallman had a solid rookie year (4.3 YPC, 34 catches), especially given the poor play of the team's offensive line. But any hopes for a larger role were dashed when the team drafted uber prospect Saquon Barkley, who should see a massive workload. Gallman will battle recently-signed Jonathan Stewart for the scraps, though if Barkley were to get hurt, there's upside here, given the upgrade to the offensive line and overall system.
Taken in the fourth round, Gallman has a chance to carve out a role should starter Paul Perkins falter or get hurt. Only Shane Vereen and Shaun Draughn are ahead of Gallman on the depth chart, and Vereen is more of a third-down type and Draughn a journeyman vying to make the club. At 6-0, 215, Gallman is fairly stout, though he lacks breakaway speed.
