Gallup had just one 100-yard game his rookie year, but that big game came in the playoffs. He had six receptions for 119 yards, showing his big potential in the game. He was pretty ho hum the rest of the season, having 33 receptions for 507 yards. He had 50 or more yards just five times. He should start opposite from Amari Cooper from day one this year. Gallup is a strong receiver that can get to the next level in a hurry. He runs solid routes and uses his size to his advantage. He also is a smart player for a young guy.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Gallup has a chance to take a pretty good step forward in year two. He could about double his stats with the Cowboys passing game looking much improved from last season. But even with that said, Gallup probably is a low-end No. 3 or 4 fantasy receiver. He won't post huge numbers. Gallup can get 65 receptions for 950 yards and six or so scores.
It was a tale of two seasons for the Dallas Cowboys offense in 2018: before Amari Cooper and after Amari Cooper. While Dak Prescott got most of the attention for his improvements with Cooper in the fold, it can't be ignored how much that mid-season trade affected Michael Gallup as well. Gallup saw just 3.14 targets per game prior to Cooper's arrival, and averaged just over 27 yards per game. After the Cowboys scooped up the struggling-yet-talented wideout from Oakland, however, Gallup averaged just above five targets per game. His yardage didn't take a significant jump (just 35.2 yards per game), but the important takeaway here is that the volume did. The Cowboys offense had to expand and adjust on the fly with a legitimate number-one wide receiver on the field, and they did so effectively. Now with a full offseason and training camp ahead of them, it stands to reason that Gallup will benefit even more from having Cooper as his teammate. That said, we should temper expectations for what Gallup might be capable of in an offense with a run-first identity. The Cowboys will be considerably more balanced in 2019 than they were heading into last season, but there will only be so many targets to go around with Ezekiel Elliott carrying a majority of the offensive workload. Gallup's upside will depend heavily on the ability of opposing teams to blanket Cooper and force Prescott to look elsewhere. It seemed to work out well for him as a rookie, so perhaps bigger and better things are on the way. Gallup's draft day value is that of a mid-round, first-guy-off-the-bench player; his season-long ceiling is likely that of a weekly flex fixture, and there could be a handful of games in which he greatly outperforms that ceiling--especially if he starts catching touchdowns.

Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 15, and is not on the injury report for Week 11.
Fantasy Spin: Gallup has been a solid contributor in the passing game since returning from his injury and should see a solid amount of targets this week. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 14.
Fantasy Spin: Gallup has played well this season and will continue to see a solid amount of targets each game. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 13.
Fantasy Spin: Gallup was targeted 10 times in the last game and finished with 76 yards and one touchdown. He has been targeted at least six times in all but one of his games this season and can be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup is set up for a strong game in Week 11 against the Detroit Lions. Gallup caught four passes for 76 yards and a touchdown last week, but he was targeted 10 times so he could have had a much bigger game. Facing a much softer defense this week, Gallup should have no problem at least matching what he did against the Vikings. He's a strong WR2 choice with some legitimate upside.
Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup registered four catches for 76 yards and a TD in Week 10 against the Minnesota Vikings.
Fantasy Spin: Gallup only caught four of 10 targeted passes, but it still produced his best outing since Week 5. The second-year pro is a borderline WR2/WR3 going forward despite some tough matchups looming on the horizon.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup caught four passes in Week 10, gaining 76 yards and scoring a touchdown. Gallup's touchdown came on a 23-yard pass from quarterback Dak Prescott in the second quarter to open up the scoring for the Cowboys. Gallup was targeted 10 times, the second most on the team. A pretty good matchup awaits him in Week 11 against the Detroit Lions.
Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 8, and is not on the injury report for Week 10.
Fantasy Spin: Gallup has been held to under 50 yards in each of the last three games but has been targeted at least six times in five of his six games in 2019. He can be considered at least a No. 3 fantasy receiver in most leagues.
Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 7.
Fantasy Spin: Gallup appears to be on track for the Week 10 game and should receive plenty of targets in the passing game. He will be facing one of the better pass defenses in the NFL this week but can still be at least a No. 3 fantasy receiver.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup (knee) was added to the Week 10 injury report on Thursday, but he was able to get in a full practice. It doesn't sound like a major injury, but Gallup's status is worth watching on Friday with Amari Cooper (knee) also fighting to play through a knee bruise on Sunday night against the Vikings. If Cooper is limited at all this weekend, Gallup and Randall Cobb could benefit in the passing game. Consider Gallup a low-end WR2 in fantasy after scoring a touchdown in Monday night's win over the Giants.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup should put up a solid performance in Week 10. The Cowboys will host the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday Night Football, and while the Vikings Defense has been good overall, they have been exploited by opposing wide receivers at times. The Cowboys running game could get shut down, forcing them to rely on throwing the ball. While Amari Cooper will likely be quarterback Dak Prescott's go-to guy, Gallup won't be far behind. He's a safe WR2 option with some decent touchdown upside.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup scored a touchdown in a Week 9 win over the division-rival New York Giants. That was just about all Gallup did, though, as he totaled two catches for 33 yards. He was targeted six times. His touchdown was a third-quarter 15-yarder from quarterback Dak Prescott. Gallup should be more heavily involved next week but could struggle when the Cowboys take on the Vikings.
Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) remained a full participant in practice Saturday, Nov. 2.
Fantasy Spin: Gallup was rather unimpressive in his last two starts prior to Dallas' Week 8 bye. He returned from injury in Week 5 to post a seven-catch, 113-yard performance with a touchdown against the Green Bay Packers. He should be started as a high-end WR3 in a nice matchup against the Giants.
Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 1.
Fantasy Spin: Gallup has been held to under 50 yards in each of the last two games but should have more success this week against the New York Giants. He can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues.
Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 31.
Fantasy Spin: Gallup posted a disappointing stat line in his last game but should have more success against the New York Giants. He should be started in all fantasy leagues this week.
Dallas Cowboys OT Cameron Fleming (calf) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 31. CB Anthony Brown (hamstring), OT La'el Collins (knee), OG Zack Martin (back, ankle), OT Tyron Smith (ankle) and Leighton Vander Esch (neck) were limited. DE Dorance Armstrong (neck), DE Robert Quinn (rib), WR Michael Gallup (knee) and WR Amari Cooper (ankle) practiced in full.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup is set for a solid Week 9 performance. The Cowboys will hit the road for a Monday Night Football contest against the New York Giants and their very forgiving defense. Gallup and Amari Cooper should have no problems getting open and moving the ball downfield. Gallup is a solid WR2 with nice upside in this one.
Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup caught three of his four targets for 34 yards in Week 7 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Fantasy Spin: Gallup started the season on fire by beating defenses downfield, but that well has dried up a bit over the last two weeks. However, there just wasn't too many opportunities for him in this contest as Dak Prescott only attempted 27 throws. Gallup will get a shot to recapture his early-season magic following a bye week as the Cowboys face the New York Giants in Week 9. Gallup should be considered a high-upside WR3 in that one after torching the Giants for 158 yards in the season opener.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup only came up with three catches on his four targets in Week 7, gaining 34 scoreless yards. It was certainly a dud in a matchup where Gallup was occasionally being considered a WR1 option, but the Dallas offense simply didn't need him in a game where they had no trouble moving the ball against a scuffling Eagles Defense.
Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 18, but is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Fantasy Spin: Gallup could be the main option in the passing game this week because of the injuries to Amari Cooper and Randall Cobb. Gallup can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 27.
