2020 Fantasy Outlook
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.

Ends 2019 on shaky ground

Gallman carried the ball 29 times for 110 yards and two touchdowns across 10 games in 2019. He also secured 11 of 15 targets for 102 yards and a score.
ANALYSIS
Gallman burst onto the fantasy scene Week 4 with an impressive showing, in which he drew the start in place of an injured Saquon Barkley and scored twice while exceeding 100 total yards. However, he ended the year with five straight designations as a healthy scratch, and he ultimately ceded the majority of backup work to Javorius Allen. Gallman will enter the final year of his rookie contract in 2020, but his standing in New York's backfield appears unclear at best.

Saquon Barkley has been a major disappointment this season, but RotoWire's Andrew Laird explains why he could be an effective piece of showdown/single-game lineups Monday against the Eagles.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
2017
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.
