Gallup caught six passes (nine targets) for 119 yards in Saturday's 30-22 loss to the Rams.
Dak Prescott was finding Gallup wide open on several occasions, allowing the rookie wideout to post career-high numbers in a crucial playoff contest. Part of the reason Gallup was able to get so many open looks was the Rams' obvious gameplan to make sure Amari Cooper didn't beat them. The 22-year-old flashed some promise at times this year, but if he can have more games like Saturday's next season, then it would go a long way in keeping opposing defenses honest while also creating some potential fantasy value in the process.
Gallup caught two of six targets for 18 yards and a touchdown during Saturday's 24-22 win over the Seahawks.
Although Gallup finished second on the team in targets, he struggled to get on the same page as Dak Prescott for much of the game. The duo did connect for an 11-yard touchdown just before halftime, swinging Dallas ahead entering the second half. Gallup made an impact in his first career playoff game, but he'll likely need to produce more efficiently next week, with either the Rams or the Saints on the docket.
Gallup hauled in a four-yard pass from Dak Prescott in the right corner of the end zone to give the Cowboys some breathing room in the third quarter, as his catch pushed Dallas' lead to 26-13 at the time. The rookie bounced back nicely from a Week 15 blanking at the hands of the Colts by posting a team-high receiving yardage total, which was greatly aided by a 31-yard reception that was the longest on the day for Big D. Gallup will look to put together a strong finish to his first NFL regular season against the Giants in Week 17.
Gallup failed to see a target in Sunday's loss to the Colts.
The goose egg comes one game after the rookie saw a season-high nine targets against the Eagles, although he was only able to turn them into four catches for 24 yards. Gallup has shown flashes of his upside this season, but for the most part he's struggled with his consistency and has yet to develop strong chemistry with Dak Prescott. Look for significant improvement from the young receiver in 2019, especially with Amari Cooper remaining the focus of attention for opposition secondaries.
Gallup was held out of Friday's practice while dealing with the ailment, but it wasn't serious enough to force the first absence of his rookie campaign. The Colorado State product should continue to earn regular snaps on offense at receiver alongside Amari Cooper and Cole Beasley, a role that has translated to an average of 5.3 targets per game over the Cowboys' last six outings.
