Reverts back to practice squad

Gallman reverted to the Seahawks' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Analysis: Gallman was inactive for Saturday's loss to the Chiefs, which leaves him with few more chances to make his season debut. The 28-year-old is eligible for two more chances to be elevated from Seattle's practice squad this year.

Won't play versus Kansas City

Gallman (coach's decision) has been ruled inactive ahead of Saturday's game against the Chiefs.

Analysis: Gallman bounced around practice squads this season before re-joining Seattle's last Saturday. The 28-year-old was then elevated to the active roster Friday, but he will wind up watching Saturday's contest from the sideline after Kenneth Walker (ankle) and DeeJay Dallas (ankle) were both ruled active pregame. Gallman will now be eligible for two more elevations while on the Seahawks' practice squad this season.

Chance to make season debut

Seattle elevated Gallman to the active roster from the practice squad Friday ahead of Saturday's game against Kansas City, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Gallman will have a chance to make his NFL debut after being elevated to Seattle's active roster for the first time this season. Kenneth Walker (ankle) and DeeJay Dallas (ankle) are both listed as questionable but on track to play, so Gallman figures to garner a depth role and may play primarily on special teams.

Back with Seahawks

Seattle signed Gallman to its practice squad Saturday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

Analysis: Just a couple days after being cut from the Seahawks' practice squad Thursday, Gallman is right back where he started. The 28-year-old running back has played just 10 snaps through two games in 2022, all on special teams.

Done in Seattle

The Seahawks cut Gallman from their practice squad Thursday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

Analysis: Gallman joined the Seahawks' practice squad Dec. 6, but he's since been let go without ever receiving a promotion to the team's active roster. The 28-year-old will now wait for another team in need of a running back to come knocking on his door.

Lands in Seattle

Gallman signed with the Seahawks practice squad Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Gallman spent time on the Chiefs' practice squad previously this season, but he never worked his way to the active roster. With Tony Jones the only running back on Seattle's active roster not currently questionable for Sunday against the Panthers, Gallman could be an emergency option to be elevated and suit up Week 14.

Loses roster spot

Gallman was cut from the Chiefs' practice squad Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

Analysis: Gallman has been with the team since Oct. 12, but he has yet to be elevated to the active roster. With the addition of Melvin Gordon to the practice squad, Gallman had become expendable. He'll work to find an opportunity elsewhere.

Joins Chiefs' practice squad

Kansas City signed Gallman to its practice squad Wednesday, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports.

Analysis: Gallman has yet to see game action in 2022 after accumulating 125 all-purpose yards on 29 touches in 2021. As long as Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Isiah Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon remain healthy, Gallman probably won't be elevated to the active roster.

Claimed by Vikings

The Vikings have claimed Gallman off waivers from the Falcons.

Analysis: The move follows the placement of fellow running back Alexander Mattison on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. Gallman thus gives the Vikings added backfield depth behind top back Dalvin Cook. Also on currently on the team's active roster is RB Kene Nwangwu, while A.J. Rose is on Minnesota's practice squad.

Let go by Falcons

Gallman was released by Atlanta on Saturday.

Analysis: Gallman was a healthy scratch in Atlanta's Week 13 game against the Buccaneers and played 45 offensive snaps over six games for the Falcons. The team also signed Qadree Ollison from the practice squad to replace Gallman at third-string running.

Dec 11, 2021 12:50 PM EST

Healthy scratch Week 13

Gallman (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Analysis: Gallman played five offensive snaps and had four carries for 19 yards last week against the Jaguars, but he'll be a healthy scratch for Sunday's contest. Qadree Ollison was elevated from the practice squad and is active in Gallman's place.

Dec 5, 2021 8:41 AM EST

Four touches in Week 12

Gallman rushed four times for 19 yards during Sunday's 21-14 win over the Jaguars.

Analysis: Gallman has been a non-factor in back-to-back weeks after his season-high performance -- 17 touches for 76 total yards -- in Week 10. Despite being out-touched by Mike Davis 8-4, Gallman was still able to match his production with 19 total yards. However, Davis' involvement in the passing game likely still solidifies him as the No. 2 fantasy commodity in the Falcons' backfield, but neither Gallman or Davis appear to be viable options when Cordarrelle Patterson is healthy.

Takes back seat in loss

Gallman rushed one time for negative three yards during Thursday's 25-0 loss to the Patriots.

Analysis: After a season-high performance in Week 10, coach Arthur Smith made it clear that Gallman was still third on the depth chart at running back behind Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle) and Mike Davis. However, Patterson was ruled out for the matchup with New England due to a sprained ankle, which elevated Gallman to the No. 2 spot. Nonetheless, he was still a non-factor in the Falcons' Week 11 loss, and surprisingly, Qadree Ollison led Atlanta's backfield with nine carries for 34 yards. Fantasy managers should continue to monitor the backfield situation, but if Patterson is healthy moving forward, it's likely he will demand the majority of touches.

Remains third on depth chart

Falcons head coach Arthur Smith said that Gallman remains third on the depth chart at running back behind Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle) and Mike Davis, Josh Kendall of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Smith went on to say that Gallman's season-high 52 percent snap share and season-high 15 carries in last week's 43-3 loss to the Cowboys was mostly a byproduct of a blowout, in addition to the fact that the Falcons faced a quick turnaround for Week 11 with a Thursday night game versus New England. With 23 snaps, Gallman outpaced both Patterson (15) and Davis (20), but Gallman won't be a lock to lead the way for the Atlanta backfield even if Patterson -- who is listed as questionable for Thursday's game -- ends up sitting. Prior to last week, both Patterson and Davis had consistently worked ahead of Gallman, and if Smith is to be believed, the pecking order among the backs won't change Week 11. That being said, a Patterson absence Thursday would still open up more opportunities for Gallman than usual, even if Davis is the likelier candidate of the two to pick up the start.

Team-high 55 rushing yards

Gallman rushed 15 times for 55 yards and caught one of two targets for 21 yards during Sunday's 43-3 loss to the Cowboys.

Analysis: After a healthy scratch in back-to-back contests, Gallman paced Atlanta's backfield during blowout loss to Dallas on Sunday. The increased role was likely due to the game being out of reach, but it's certainly worth monitoring, as Mike Davis' production has been significantly reduced since Atlanta's Week 6 bye. If Gallman can overtake Davis on the depth chart, then he will likely be worth consideration in deeper leagues due to Matt Ryan's usage of running backs in the passing game. However, Cordarrelle Patterson's versatility will likely keep him solidified as the No. 1 fantasy option among Falcons' running backs.

Nov 15, 2021 11:56 AM EST

Inactive Sunday

Gallman (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game at New Orleans, Tori McElhaney of the Falcons' official site reports.

Analysis: Gallman will be a healthy scratch for the second consecutive contest. Qadree Ollison was elevated from the practice squad for Sunday and will serve as Atlanta's reserve tailback behind Mike Davis and Cordarrelle Patterson.

Nov 7, 2021 9:08 AM EST

Healthy scratch Sunday

Gallman (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Panthers.

Analysis: Gallman saw action in the past three games for Atlanta, totaling eight carries for 33 yards while failing to catch his lone target. He'll be a healthy scratch for Sunday, leaving Cordarrelle Patterson and Mike Davis as the team's two available tailbacks.

Oct 31, 2021 9:12 AM EST

Not a part the offensive game plan

Gallman played three offensive snaps and rushed one time for two yards during Sunday's 30-28 win over the Dolphins.

Analysis: For the second straight game, Gallman has rushed just one time for two yards and played just three offensive snaps. Barring an injury, the 27-year-old running back is not a viable fantasy option.

Oct 25, 2021 12:56 PM EST

Makes 2021 debut

Gallman rushed six times for 29 yards and didn't catch his only target during Sunday's 34-30 loss to Washington.

Analysis: Gallman was a healthy scratch for the Falcons' first three contests this season. However, the 27-year-old returned to action in Week 4 and finished second on the team in rushing yards, but he was still out touched by both Cordarrelle Patterson and Mike Davis. It's unclear what Gallman's role will be moving forward.

Oct 4, 2021 10:07 AM EST

Sidelined again Sunday

Gallman (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Giants in New York, Scott Bair of the Falcons' official site reports.

Analysis: Gallman has opened his tenure with the Falcons as a healthy scratch in each of the team's first three games of the campaign. Coach Arthur Smith seems comfortable entrusting Mike Davis and Cordarrelle Patterson with the majority of the backfield reps, which could mean Gallman needs an injury to one of the two to get on the field.
