Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup has fallen behind rookie CeeDee Lamb in the wide receiver pecking order, but remains a guy with plenty of upside. For what it's worth, Gallup was the target on three of Andy Dalton's 11 pass attempts after he replaced Dak Prescott (ankle). Dalton will start Week 6 and presumably the rest of the season. If he starts targeting Gallup more, the wide receiver could re-establish himself as a high-end WR2, but for now he's a risky, low-volume but high-upside WR3 option.
Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup caught all four of his targets for 73 yards in Week 5 against the New York Giants.
Fantasy Spin: His final line is misleading in that half of his catches and 57 of his yards came on the offense's final two plays of the game preceding Greg Zuerlein's game-winning field goal. It's impossible to know if and/or how the targets will be redistributed in this passing game with Andy Dalton now entrenched as the starter following Dak Prescott's season-ending injury, but Gallup has primarily been a field-stretcher this year. He figures to be a low-floor, high-upside yet again in Week 6 versus the Arizona Cardinals.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup made some huge clutch catches in Week 5. He totaled four catches for 73 yards, with two of those catches coming on the final drive of the game which led up to a game-winning field goal. Gallup was targeted four times, which was second on the team, but well behind CeeDee Lamb's 11. Gallup will likely continue to be a big play threat, but will have some bust weeks as well. His usage will be interesting to see with Andy Dalton under center.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup had a quiet Week 4 and will look to bounce back in a Week 5 matchup against the New York Giants. Gallup caught just two passes last week despite the Cowboys throwing 58 passes in the game. He seems like he's been supplanted as the team's second wide receiver by rookie CeeDee Lamb, but there's certainly still a role for Gallup on this offense. He'll have boom weeks and bust weeks, making him hard to trust in standard formats, but hard to bench as well. Gallup is right on the WR2/3 turn for Week 5.
Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup posted two catches for 29 yards on five targets in Week 4 against the Cleveland Browns.
Fantasy Spin: Dak Prescott threw for 502 yards, Amari Cooper had a 12-134-1 line, rookie CeeDee Lamb scored twice and Gallup did this? Fantasy owners of Gallup certainly were left shaking their head after this one. He'll look to get back into the picture in Week 5 against the New York Giants.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup only caught two passes in a Week 4 loss to the Cleveland Browns. Gallup was targeted five times, coming down with the two for 29 scoreless yards. Gallup was sixth on the team in targets and has now had two games of two catches and one of three catches this season. He's seeing a very low volume of passes as almost a situational deep threat. Gallup has all the talent in the world, but if he's barely seeing passes thrown his way, that won't make for an effective fantasy starter.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup has strong WR2 upside in Week 4 against the Cleveland Browns. Gallup got off to a somewhat slow start in Week 1 and 2, but burst onto the scene in Week 3 with six catches for 138 yards and a touchdown. He's seen 19 targets so far this season and has been in on about 90% of the team's offensive snaps. He'll avoid Denzel Ward's coverage in the Browns secondary and could lead the Cowboys in receiving again this week. Start him with confidence in all fantasy formats.
Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup hauled in six passes for 138 yards and a touchdown during a Week 3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
Fantasy Spin: After accounting for five receptions and 108 yards combined over the first two weeks, Gallup dismantled the Seattle secondary to lead the team in yards and finish second in receptions. He should carry more value than CeeDee Lamb over the long haul, but Lamb's presence means Gallup's value could fluctuate quite a bit from week to week.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup played very well in a Week 3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Gallup caught six passes on nine targets, gaining 138 yards and scoring a touchdown. Gallup's touchdown was an impressive 43-yard catch at the end of the third quarter. Gallup was much more involved in this one, ending up third on the team in targets behind Ezekiel Elliott and Amari Cooper. Gallup will have more big games like this one, but he'll be hard to predict on a game-to-game basis. He's a WR3 with upside next week against the Cleveland Browns.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup has been mostly disappointing through the first two weeks of the season, but he's a solid fantasy bet for a Week 3 potentially high-scoring affair with the Seattle Seahawks. So far, Gallup has turned 10 targets into five catches for 108 yards. He's been on the field for almost every offensive play, however, seeing the field on 96% of Week 1's offensive snaps and 91% of Week 2's. In a game sure to feature some high scores, Gallup is a solid WR2 option with touchdown upside.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup only caught two passes in a Week 2 comeback win over the Atlanta Falcons. He was able to gain 58 yards and was targeted five times in a game where quarterback Dak Prescott made 47 throws. Gallup was well behind wide receivers CeeDee Lamb and Amari Cooper, who each saw nine targets their way, and tight end Dalton Schultz, who saw 10. Gallup will have some huge games here and there, but he's the least likely of the three Cowboys wide receivers to put together a consistent string of fantasy performances. He's best used in best-ball formats or carefully matched up in standard leagues.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup is a solid fantasy option in Week 2 against the Atlanta Falcons and a good chance to find the end zone. Gallup had a tough matchup in Week 1 but ended up with 50 yards on three catches. The Falcons Defense, however, allowed 56 passing plays that went for 20 yards or more last season. That's Gallup's game, and he should be the target of at least a few deep balls from quarterback Dak Prescott. Gallup comes into Week 2 as a high-ceiling WR2.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup made three catches in Week 1, gaining 50 yards. Gallup was targeted five times, meanwhile Amari Cooper saw 14 targets and rookie CeeDee Lamb saw six. Still, Gallup was on the field for 69 snaps along with Cooper and while he may have a very high ceiling on any given week, he also could have the lowest floor. He's a good bet to reach more of his ceiling in Week 2 against the Falcons, though.
Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup had three receptions for 50 yards against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 1.
Fantasy Spin: Obviously what people will remember about Gallup on Sunday night was his late offensive pass interference penalty -- a call that denied the Cowboys a first down deep in LA territory and also took a lot of yards off of Gallup's total. His five targets were third on the team, trailing both Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb. Although Gallup has WR2 upside, he's a safer play as No. 3 fantasy wideout right now.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup makes for a solid WR3 option in Week 1 fantasy lineups. Like usual, Gallup carries nice upside and a formidable floor in a fast-paced Dallas offense. Coach Mike McCarthy says Gallup is, "a number one wide receiver in [his] view." Incoming rookie CeeDee Lamb could eat into some of Gallup's targets this season, but he might also open things up a bit more on the field. Gallup is a solid fantasy wide receiver who won't usually win you the matchup on his own, but will rarely ever be the reason you lose either.
Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup is 'a No. 1 receiver,' according to head coach Mike McCarthy. 'Let's make it clear, Michael Gallup's a No. 1 receiver in my view,' McCarthy said.
Fantasy Spin: The addition of CeeDee Lamb to the receiving corps has Gallup flying under the radar a bit, but he posted more than 1,100 yards last year in just his second season. He should still be considered a WR3 in what should be a high-powered Dallas passing attack.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup has been a standout player to new coach Mike McCarthy who called the third-year player "a number-one receiver." McCarthy added that Gallup was one of the most explosive players he noticed when watching Cowboys film prior to the season. In 2019 Gallup caught 66 passes for over 1,100 yards and six touchdowns while becoming just the third Cowboy to record 1,000 yards in their second season. Gallup will have more competition for targets with the team using a first-round pick on CeeDee Lamb, but the trio of Gallup, Lamb and Amari Cooper should all have room to thrive in a Dallas offense that was second in the NFL in pass yards last season. Draft Gallup with confidence as a WR3.
Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup became only the 70th player in league history to amass at least 1,100 receiving yards in his first and/or second NFL season in 2019.
Fantasy Spin: Gallup recorded one of the quieter 1,100-yard receiving seasons in and promptly went from an under-the-radar fantasy prospect in 2020 to the forgotten man in the Cowboys' passing attack as soon as they drafted CeeDee Lamb. Things are lining up nicely for Dallas to throw the ball all over the field this year, and it seems more probable than not Gallup will enjoy another 1,000-yard campaign. Gallup should be viewed as a WR3 in fantasy this summer with significant upside.
