Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Held to two catches Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup caught two of five targets for 58 yards in Sunday's comeback win over the Falcons.

He was fifth in targets on the day for the Cowboys, as Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb, Ezekiel Elliott and even tight end Dalton Schultz all saw more looks from Dak Prescott. Gallup did make his receptions count, however, hauling in a 20-yard pass late in the first half to set up a field goal and then making a leaping 38-yard grab along the sideline late in the fourth quarter that eventually led to Prescott's third rushing TD of the game. One of Dallas' trio of wide receivers is likely going to be on the back burner in any given week, but it won't necessarily be Gallup every time. He'll look to get more involved Week 3 against a Seahawks secondary that just gave up 397 passing yards to Cam Newton.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Big play called back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup had three receptions (five targets) for 50 yards in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Rams.

Gallup would have had a bigger fantasy performance -- and the Cowboys potentially a different game result -- if a questionable offensive pass interference call didn't wipe out what would have been a huge reception in the final minutes of this tight contest. The 24-year-old ended up finishing third in targets, falling one behind rookie standout CeeDee Lamb and a whopping five behind No.1 wideout Amari Cooper. It is apparent who is Dak Prescott's favorite target, but it appears Gallup will have to share No. 2 honors with his new teammate acquired via the draft. This may result in a reduction in overall targets, but the Cowboys' embarrassment of riches at the wideout position could leave Gallup in favorable defensive matchups. There may be enough fantasy production to go around for all three receivers against a soft Atlanta defense in Week 2.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Gets praise from McCarthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Mike McCarthy has referred to Gallup as a "No. 1 receiver", Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Amari Cooper has three more years of experience and a massive extension on his side, but that didn't stop McCarthy from stating, "I think we're very fortunate to have three players with that level of potential to go out and play at that level." The depth chart reads Cooper, Gallup and rookie first-rounder CeeDee Lamb, in that order. However, Gallup bested Cooper in targets per game (8.1 versus 7.4) last season and was also was one of 16 receivers with at least 1,100 yards and six touchdowns in 2019. Look for the 24-year-old to remain heavily involved in the Cowboys' passing attack, even with the addition of Lamb.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: More competition for targets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup will face competition for the No. 2 wide receiver spot in Dallas after the team selected CeeDee Lamb with the 17th overall pick in the draft.

Heading into his third NFL season, Gallup's spot seemed secure behind Amari Cooper, but the duo is now joined by a player who many experts tabbed as the most complete receiver in the entire 2020 draft class. On the bright side, there are plenty of looks up for grabs in the Cowboys' offense after slot receiver Randall Cobb and tight end Jason Witten (166 combined targets last year) both left in free agency, so even if Lamb makes a splash right away, Gallup's floor should be safe. Given the new competition, however, it could be tough for him to significantly improve on the 8.1 targets a game he saw in 2019.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Huge performance to close out year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup caught five of seven targets for 98 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 47-16 win over Washington.

While the Cowboys still ended up missing the playoffs when the Eagles beat the Giants in Week 17, Gallup did everything he could to try and drag his team into the postseason, hauling in scores of four, 32 and 45 yards as Dallas pulled away in the second half. The second-year receiver finishes 2019 with 66 catches on 113 targets for 1,107 yards and six TDs, more than doubling his rookie production. With Amari Cooper's fate as a free agent still up in the air, Gallup could head into next season as the team's No. 1 WR, but regardless of his role he figures to be a key part of the Cowboys' aerial attack.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Just misses century mark in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup caught five of 11 targets for a team-high 98 yards in Sunday's 17-9 loss to the Eagles.

The last of those targets came late in the fourth quarter, when Dak Prescott looked Gallup's way in the end zone on fourth down only for Sidney Jones to knock the pass away. The second-year receiver did go over 1,000 yards on the season with the performance, and he'll look to pad his career-best totals further in Week 17's must-win game against Washington.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Not needed against Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup caught one of three targets for six yards in Sunday's 44-21 win over the Rams.

The Cowboys leaned heavily on their running game, as Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard each ran for over 100 yards and combined for three TDs, so there wasn't a whole lot of production left over for the team's wide receivers. Gallup still is within striking distance of his first career 1,000-yard campaign, needing only 89 more yards, but he could have a tough time getting there Week 16 against an Eagles defense that held him to three catches for 34 yards in their previous meeting this season.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Eclipses century mark in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup secured six of 10 targets for 109 yards in the Cowboys' 31-24 loss to the Bears on Thursday.

Gallup either co-led or paced the team in receptions, receiving yardage and targets, and he crossed the 100-yard mark for the fourth time overall on the season. The second-year wideout has also seen double-digit targets in three of his last five games, although he hasn't scored in four consecutive contests. However, with the Cowboys likely to continue focusing heavily on the air attack while trying to nail down an underwhelming NFC East over the final three games, Gallup should have plenty of opportunities to snap that dubious streak. He'll look to accomplish just that against the Rams in Week 15, a week from Sunday.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Just misses big day against Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup caught three of six targets for 63 yards in Thursday's 26-15 loss to the Bills.

While his final numbers were merely OK, Gallup could have had a much better line after he was initially ruled to have caught a fourth-quarter touchdown as the Cowboys tried to mount a late comeback. Upon review, however, the second-year receiver was ruled not to have gotten his second foot down in bounds. Gallup has maintained a solid PPR floor by catching at least three passes for more than 50 yards in four straight games, but he'll look to make a bigger impact next week in Chicago.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Modest numbers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup caught four of six targets for 55 yards in Sunday's 13-9 loss to the Patriots.

The Cowboys' offense failed to score a TD for the first time all season due to a combination of rain and a tough opponent, but Gallup still caught at least four passes for the third straight game. The second-year receiver should remain one of Dak Prescott's top options in next week's home game against the Bills.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Leads team in receiving yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup caught nine of 13 targets for 148 yards during Sunday's 35-27 win over the Lions.

Gallup led the team in targets and catches as he topped the 100-yard mark for the third time this season. He perhaps received some extra attention from Dak Prescott as Amari Cooper was visibly limited by injuries as well as a tough matchup against Darius Slay. Regardless of Cooper's health, Gallup is clearly an integral part of the passing game and will look to build off this excellent performance next Sunday on the road against the Patriots.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Finds end zone
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup caught four passes (10 targets) for 76 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 28-24 loss to Minnesota.

All three of the Cowboys' top receivers went off in this contest, but their collective efforts fell just short in an exciting primetime matchup. Gallup's 10 targets were good for second among all of Dak Prescott's receiving options. The second-year wideout has looked good in the No. 2 spot on the depth chart behind Amari Cooper, and he has shown the ability to produce big performances in games where Prescott is asked to shoulder more of the offensive workload. Gallup is worthy of flex consideration in a plus matchup against the Lions next Sunday.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Scores in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup caught two of six targets for 33 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 37-18 win over the Giants.

Gallup didn't have the biggest game, but still made a considerable impact with one of his touches. After making a first-down reception, Gallup actually galloped over a Giants defender and into the end zone in acrobatic fashion, giving the Cowboys an eight-point lead to start the fourth quarter. In doing so, he scored for the second time this season, which helped compensate for his third straight game with under 50 receiving yards.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Quiet in big win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup caught three of four targets for 34 yards in Sunday's win over the Eagles.

Amari Cooper was the preferred big-play threat for Dak Prescott in this one, and Gallup's longest catch went for only 14 yards. The second-year receiver has shown he can be explosive this season with two 100-yard performances in five games, and he'll be in a good spot for another one against the Giants in Week 9 following the Cowboys' bye.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Enters Sunday minus designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup (knee) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Eagles, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Gallup's reps in practice were capped Wednesday through Friday, but those limitations were likely just for maintenance-related reasons following his recent return from arthroscopic left knee surgery. The second-year wideout has played more than 85 percent of the Cowboys' offensive snaps in both of his first two games back from injury and will once again be in store for another sizable workload Sunday. With fellow wideouts Amari Cooper (ankle/quadriceps) and Randall Cobb (back) both questionable for the contest, Gallup could end up serving as quarterback Dak Prescott's top target.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Limited at Thursday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup (knee) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Gallup maintained his activity level for a second consecutive day, which cannot be said for Amari Cooper (ankle/quadriceps) and Randall Cobb (back). Cooper intends to attempt to practice Friday, but also admitted that he's unsure if he'll be able to suit up Sunday night against the Eagles, per Jon Machota of The Athletic. Even if a compromised Cooper does so, Gallup seems poised to be the top receiving option for Dak Prescott this weekend.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Limited by knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup was limited at Wednesday's practice due to a knee injury, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Gallup is nearly one month removed from having arthroscopic surgery on his left knee, which forced him to sit out Weeks 3 and 4. In two games since his return, he's racked up 11 receptions (on 21 targets) for 161 yards and one touchdown. The Cowboys may be capping his practice reps as a precaution, but it should be noted that both Amari Cooper (ankle/quadriceps) and Randall Cobb (back) were held out Wednesday, so Gallup currently is the healthiest of the team's top three wide receivers at the moment.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Quiet game against Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup caught four of seven targets for 48 yards in Sunday's 24-22 loss to the Jets.

Amari Cooper left the game early with a quadriceps strain, but Gallup wasn't able to take advantage as the Cowboys' passing game was mostly held in check. If Cooper's injury proves to be serious, Gallup will need to step up next week in a big divisional clash with the Eagles.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Big numbers in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup caught seven of 14 targets for 113 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-24 loss to the Packers.

Making his return from knee surgery after missing the last two weeks, Gallup found the end zone for the first time this season while topping 100 yards for the second time in three games. The second-year wideout is the clear No. 2 for the Cowboys behind Amari Cooper, but there's been more than enough volume coming from Dak Prescott to make both receivers productive when they're in the lineup together.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Returning to action Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup (knee) is listed as active Sunday against the Packers, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Although he was deemed questionable to play, Gallup's return was forecast by executive vice president Stephen Jones on Friday, who told Jon Machota of The Athletic, "It's going to be great to have him back this week." Gallup is just shy of three weeks removed from surgery to trim the meniscus in his left knee, so the Cowboys may ease him back into action, which in turn would limit his potential target count. If he retains his previous workload -- 78 and 67 percent of the offensive snaps in Weeks 1 and 2, respectively -- he could approach his 7.5 targets per contest from that stretch.
