2018 Outlook: Barkley was selected by New York with the second overall pick in the draft. The ex-Nittany Lion combines a big frame (6 feet, 233 pounds) with exceptional speed, vision, elusiveness and receiving ability. Similar to the likes of Le'Veon Bell, David Johnson and Todd Gurley II in recent seasons, Barkley is expected to be an every-down workhorse who immediately pushes for 350-plus touches and 10-plus touchdowns. Barkley sports elite upside and is immediately a fringe top-five fantasy running back. He is likely to be selected in the first round of most 2018 fantasy drafts and should be the top pick in all rookie drafts.
2018 Outlook: Stewart heads to the Big Apple after 10 seasons with the Panthers. Now 31 years old, Stewart figures to reprise his role as an early-down innings-eater, but he won't be on the field much with second overall pick Saquon Barkley in the mix. Stewart hasn't appeared in 16 games since 2011 but has ranked in the top 20 among backs in carries each of the past three seasons. Since 2015, he ranks 14th in rushing yards (2,493), ninth in rushing touchdowns (21) and third in carries inside the opponent's five-yard line (38). A non-factor as a receiver, Stewart ranks 65th at the position with 53 targets during that span. Stewart is no more than a handcuff to Barkley.
2018 Outlook: Gallman was selected in the fourth round of the 2017 draft and played 307 snaps as part of the Giants' backfield committee as a rookie. The Clemson product is a big, aggressive rusher at 6-foot-1, 215 pounds, and he averaged 4.29 YPC (1.95 YAC) as a rookie. He made some noise down the stretch by ranking fourth among running backs with 19 catches from Week 14 on, though his poor efficiency (three drops, 4.1 yards per target) is problematic. Gallman is now third on the depth chart since the team drafted Saquon Barkley and signed Jonathan Stewart. Gallman's only path to flex value is a Barkley injury.
