Around the League
Wayne Gallman - RB (NYG)
Gallman had his fourth straight game of 10+ carries and at least one touchdown against the Eagles on Sunday. Now that Devonta Freeman has landed on the injured reserve, he could miss at least 3-4 weeks, meaning Gallman will likely continue to be the feature back in New York. The Giants do have a bye next week but will have matchups against average run defenses like the Bengals and Cardinals in games Freeman is expected to miss. Even when Freeman does come off the injured reserve, if Gallman continues to run hard and be productive, then he might be replaced by Gallman as the Giants starting running back.
The Dolphins have been one of the many surprises in the NFL this year. Their defense has been one of the more under the radar fantasy performers at the position so far this season as well. Managing to score in double figure four times this year, the Dolphins have rocketed up into the top 7 as far as D/STs are concerned, yet are still only owned in 33% of leagues. Their next two game come against the Broncos and Jets, the 31st and 32nd ranked teams against opposing defenses respectively. It will obviously get harder after that, but this is a solid unit who is one of only four teams that has produced at least one turnover in every game since Week 1.
Michael Pittman Jr. - WR (IND)
The former Trojan had an impressive game on Thursday night, catching a team high seven passes and scoring 15.5 PPR points despite not finding the endzone. If he can continue to establish a connection with Philip Rivers, he could quickly become the WR1 in Indy, especially with the struggles of TY Hilton this year. Pittman is a versatile receiver and if he continues to get his fair share of targets, he could become a very viable fantasy option for the playoff push.
