It remains to be seen who will line up at quarterback for the New York Giants, whether Daniel Jones will return from an injury or if Colt McCoy fills in again. An effective passing game can help out the rushing attack, so let’s take a look at what fantasy owners should be doing with Giants running backs Wayne Gallman and/or Alfred Morris in a crucial week in fantasy.
Fantasy Football analysis: Giants RBs Wayne Gallman, Alfred Morris
With McCoy under center in the last time out in a 20-6 loss to the Cleveland Browns, the running game was fairly ineffective. Gallman led the team in carries with nine rushing attempts for 29 yards, and Morris had more yards with 39 on seven carries. Neither back was targeted in the passing game.
One thing to note is Devonta Freeman could return to the backfield this weekend.
The Giants and their running backs will see the Baltimore Ravens on the road on Sunday. Baltimore ranks 10th in rushing yards allowed per game. In the Ravens last game, they shut down the Jacksonville Jaguars rushing attack in a 40-14 win. James Robinson carried the ball 16 times for just 35 yards.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Gallman is the only Giants running back worth starting, and it would be as a low-end third running back. Morris can remain on the bench for fantasy purposes.
