NY Giants keep or dump? Who has to go after missing NFL Playoffs … Again
Saquon Barkley: STAY
When healthy, Barkley is among the most dominant and versatile running backs in the NFL, and he’ll look to bounce back and prove he’s worthy of being paid among the top running backs in the league upon returning from a torn ACL.
Dion Lewis: GO
Lewis was among the biggest disappointments for the Giants. fumbling twice, providing little spark on special teams, while logging just 28 carries in 15 games as he fell to the bottom of the running back timeshare.
Wayne Gallman: STAY
Gallman’s play, particularly over the second half of the season, proved that he’s a worthy complement to Barkley and plenty capable of being an every-down running back. Set to become a free agent after this offseason, the Giants certainly won’t be getting into any bidding wars for Gallman, but given the Cleveland Browns’, Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ success with a running back by committee and the Chiefs’ bountiful RB depth, the Giants would be wise to at least make an effort to bring Gallman back.
Alfred Morris: GO
Morris provided a bit of a spark and turned back the clock at age 32, but he still averaged only 4.5 yards per attempt and scored just one rushing touchdown.
Devonta Freeman: GO
Freeman appeared in just five games after signing with the Giants in the aftermath of Barkley’s injury. He averaged just 3.2 yards per carry, reinforcing thoughts around the league that perhaps his better days as a runner were behind him.
