Huddle Up: If Freeman misses extended action, Wayne Gallman figures to be the next man up, at least on early downs.

New York Giants RB Devonta Freeman ran 18 times for 61 yards in Week 6 against the Washington Football Team and he added one reception for minus-4 yards on his only two targets.
Huddle Up: The yardage total wasn't great, but he continues to see a larger workload every week. He can be trusted as a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option in most leagues. The Giants have a quick turnaround, traveling to face the Eagles in Week 7 on Thursday night.

New York Giants RB Devonta Freeman had 17 carries, 60 yards and a touchdown in a Week 5 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Freeman was also targeted three times, catching two of them for 27 yards.
Huddle Up: Freeman continues to look a little better each week after being signed to replace an injured Saquon Barkley. There are still plenty of reasons for concern on a weekly basis, not the least of which is the Giants' status as arguably the worst offense in the NFL. Still, 87 yards and a score isn't a bad game's work, and 19 touches represents 19 opportunities to make a play. As such, Freeman looks like an RB3 going forward.

New York Giants RB Devonta Freeman rushed 11 times for 33 yards in Week 4 against the Los Angeles Rams and he added four receptions for 35 yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: Freeman led the backfield with 15 total touches to six for Wayne Gallman and just three for Dion Lewis. Going forward it's likely Freeman continues to get the most looks, and he is the G-Men back you want to target for fantasy purposes. The Giants travel to meet the Cowboys in Week 5.

New York Giants RB Devonta Freeman will receive a bigger offensive role in Week 4, but the team still plans to use three running backs during the game, according to head coach Joe Judge.
Huddle Up: Freeman was limited to 10 yards on five carries last week but should see more touches against the Los Angeles Rams. He should still be avoided in fantasy leagues despite the increase in snaps.

New York Giants RB Devonta Freeman rushed for 10 yards on five carries against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 3.
Huddle Up: Freeman signed with the Giants earlier in the week and received limited touches in his first game. He should receive more touches next week but probably can be kept on the bench because of the matchup.

Updating previous reports, New York Giants RB Devonta Freeman's one-year deal includes a $1.07 million base salary, which was prorated to $944,118 worth a maximum of $2.874 million (prorated from $3 million). He'll receive $280,000 in per-game roster bonuses and $1.15 million in rushing yard and touchdown incentives. He'll earn $250,000 for making the Pro Bowl or First-Team All-Pro.
Huddle Up: Keep Freeman stashed for a couple of weeks as he learns the offense. He could carve out a big role for the ailing G-Men.

Updating a previous story, free-agent RB Devonta Freeman (Falcons) officially agreed to a one-year deal worth up to $3 million with the New York Giants Tuesday, Sept. 22.
Huddle Up: It may take Freeman a couple weeks to get fully up to speed but he should eventually control the bulk of the touches out of the Giants' backfield. His dual-threat abilities should allow him to be a FLEX option most weeks.

Free-agent RB Devonta Freeman (Falcons) reportedly agreed to terms on an undisclosed contract with the New York Giants on Tuesday, Sept. 22.
Huddle Up: Freeman is reportedly waiting to get his COVID-19 test results back, but it appears the deal will happen if everything checks out OK. If the deal comes together as expected, the former Atlanta Falcon can't be expected to do much in Week 3 but should be expected to lead this backfield at some point early in October. Unfortunately, he graded out as one of the worst running backs analytically last season, so it's debatable what he might be able to offer fantasy owners. Consider him a low-end flex option at best.
