Fantasy Football Week 11 Waiver Wire: Five Running Backs to Add
Wayne Gallman, RB, New York Giants
Saquon Barkley has been as advertised through 10 games of his rookie season, with at least 100 total yards in nine of 10 games (94 total yards in lone exception), and he’ll jump up to RB3 in ESPN PPR leagues after a big game in Week 11.
Gallman was sprinkled in a bit against the Buccaneers in Week 10, with 35 total yards (24 receiving) on four touches (two catches). In five games when he had double-digit carries as a rookie last year, the Clemson product averaged 4.5 yards per carry with 20 total receptions on 26 targets.
If you’re a Barkley owner you may be headed to the playoffs, or have a pretty good chance to make the playoffs, and a significant injury to him would quickly derail any championship hopes. Gallman is now completely rosterable as a handcuff, and he’s a priority waiver wire add this week for Barkley owners.
