Wayne Gallman Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Fantasy Football News 2022

Most Recent Shark Bites

The Vikings have placed RB Alexander Mattison on the COVID list. They also claimed RB Wayne Gallman off waivers from the Falcons. These moves shouldn't really matter for fantasy football purposes, with Dalvin Cook back. But we'll keep our fingers crossed that Mattison's COVID situation doesn't affect Cook as well.

Falcons RB Qadree Ollison missed practice this week with a non-COVID illness and is not expected to play vs. the Jaguars on Sunday, according to insider Orlando Ledbetter. Ollison doesn't show up on the official injury report because he's currently on the practice squad. He ended up leading the Cordarrelle Patterson-less Atlanta backfield last week, tallying 9 carries to Mike Davis' 3 and Wayne Gallman's 1. Patterson is trending toward returning for Sunday's game and is the only viable fantasy play in this backfield.

Falcons RB Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Patriots. It would have been surprising if he'd been able to play just 4 days after suffering what's believed to be a mild high-ankle sprain. Patterson did get in a couple of limited practices this week, so a Week 12 return seems possible. His absence tonight leaves Atlanta's backfield to Mike Davis and Wayne Gallman. We're betting on Davis leading the way in touches, but it's a murky situation (and a bad running game in general).

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Falcons RB Cordarrelle Patterson could miss "a couple weeks" with the ankle injury he suffered in the loss to Dallas. Former head team Dr. David Chao believes Patterson has a high-ankle sprain based on video review. If that's the case, a couple weeks would be the best-case scenario. Plan on Patterson at least missing Thursday night's game vs. the Patriots. We'll see when he's able to return from there. His absence will leave Atlanta's backfield to Mike Davis and Wayne Gallman.

Falcons RB Wayne Gallman is inactive for today's game vs. the Eagles. He looks like a healthy scratch after joining the team just recently. Cordarrelle Patterson will back up starting RB Mike Davis today.

The Falcons on Thursday announced that they had signed RB Wayne Gallman and released RB Qadree Ollison. That doesn’t mean much for fantasy football values, unless you had big dreams for your late-round Ollison shares. Gallman played well for the Giants last season, but they then let him walk so they could pounce on Devontae Booker in free agency. Gallman, of course, failed to stick with San Francisco this summer. He now, at least, should find more opportunity in 1 of the league’s worst RB depth charts.

The 49ers released RB Wayne Gallman. A noteworthy signing back in April, the 49ers proceeded to retain Raheem Mostert and draft Trey Sermon and Elijah Mitchell. That trio will enter the regular season filling San Francisco's depth chart, along with JaMycal Hasty. (Jeff Wilson remains on the PUP list.)

The 49ers are holding RB Trey Sermon out of Sunday night's preseason game against the Chargers. The rookie reportedly sustained a mild ankle injury during the practice week. According to Niners Nation, he returned to the field for the practice in which he came up "gimpy." That indicates it's not an issue we need to worry about. Raheem Mostert and Elijah Mitchell also won't play in the game, leaving more reps for Wayne Gallman and JaMycal Hasty.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson will start the season on the PUP list after his surgery to repair a torn meniscus, GM John Lynch said. That means Wilson will miss at least the first 6 games of the season. And he might find playing time tough to come by after that with Trey Sermon, Raheem Mostert, Wayne Gallman and Elijah Mitchell all vying for snaps. Wilson is undraftable right now.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson recently underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports. Wilson is expected to be sidelined 4 to 6 months, which keeps him out until sometime between mid-September and mid-November. He signed a fully guaranteed 1-year, $2 million deal this offseason, so Wilson's roster spot should be safe. But he's a candidate to open the season on the PUP list. We'll keep an eye on his rehab this summer, but Wilson isn't worth a pick in early fantasy drafts. His injury makes the 49ers backfield a bit less crowded, with Raheem Mostert, Wayne Gallman and rookies Trey Sermon and Elijah Mitchell now vying for snaps. The hype train is speeding down the tracks for Sermon, who's going in the 7th round of recent FFPC drafts.

The 49ers have added Louisiana RB Elijah Mitchell to their backfield crowd in the 6th round of the 2021 NFL Draft. Mitchell sports impressive testing numbers, including a 4.35-second pro day 40, an 83rd-percentile vertical, a 94th-percentile broad jump and a 71st-percentile 3-cone drill. His production for the Ragin’ Cajuns was fine, but a strong O-line certainly helped his 6.2-yard rushing average. Mitchell also spent his whole college career splitting touches basically evenly with limited prospect Trey Ragas. Sophomore Chris Smith tied Mitchell for the backfield lead with 16 receptions in 2020. He'll face even stiffer competition in San Francisco, which returns Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson and JaMycal Hasty, added Wayne Gallman and already drafted Trey Sermon. We didn't like Mitchell as more than a late consideration in rookie drafts heading in. He doesn't look any more attractive now. Mitchell will need to fight for a spot on the 2021 roster.

The 49ers have signed RB Wayne Gallman to a 1-year deal. He joins a depth chart that also includes Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson Jr., JaMycal Hasty and Austin Walter. With the Giants in 2020, Gallman actually outperformed both Wilson and Mostert in Football Outsiders' rushing DYAR and DVOA, ranking top-12 in each category. Gallman also earned a higher rushing grade than Wilson from Pro Football Focus and narrowly trailed Mostert in that category (77.0 to 76.4). Mostert is going in the middle of Round 7 in FFPC best-ball ADP as RB28; Wilson sits late in Round 9 at RB37. Neither is going early enough that you need to remove them from your drafting plans. But Gallman's 2020 performance makes him worth considering in a backfield that likes to spread touches around. For now, consider sprinkling in some late Gallman shares into your best-ball drafting. We'll see how things settle out through the summer.

Ravens CB Marcus Peters (calf) is inactive for today's game against the Giants. With CB Jimmy Smith also out, it looks like Anthony Averett and Tramon Williams joining Marlon Humphrey as Baltimore's top 3 corners. The situation adds upside to Giants WR Darius Slayton, who has seen 17 targets over the past 2 weeks and sits at his cheapest DraftKings price of the season. Ravens DE Calais Campbell (calf) is active. He finished the week with his 1st full practice since suffering his calf injury way back in Week 9. So Campbell should be in for more playing time than he has seen the past 2 games following his return. That makes him an IDP lineup candidate for the 1st time in a while and stands as bad news for the Giants' run game.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game in Seattle. He’s not going to play, leaving Colt McCoy under center. It’s a downgrade for the entire Giants offense.
