Gallup caught two of three targets for 34 yards during Sunday's 27-20 win over the Eagles.
Gallup looked like he was growing into a solid No. 2 for Dallas in recent weeks, but fell off a little on Sunday. Part of that can be attributed to Ezekiel Elliott's six catches out of the backfield. The passing game is also shaking itself out with Amari Cooper now leading the show. Outside of Cooper, Gallup is still the most dangerous threat in Dallas' passing game and will enjoy a favorable matchup Sunday against a bottom-three Atlanta pass defense surrendering 292 passing yards per game.
Gallup caught three of six targets for 51 yards during Monday's 28-14 loss to the Titans.
Gallup was coming off of a career game, but there was some question as to what effect Amari Cooper would have on the offense. In the end, Cooper led Dallas across statistics on Monday, but Gallup still managed to set a season high with six targets. If Monday proves to be the pattern Dallas' passing attack follows through the season, Gallup looks to be WR2 for the Cowboys with some more favorable matchups as defenses focus on taking away Cooper. A visit to Philadelphia's 25th ranked pass defense comes Sunday.
Gallup will probably see a reduction in snaps following the acquisition of Amari Cooper.
The Cowboys had finally settled on Gallup and Allen Hurns as their regular outside receivers, but with Cooper coming in and expected to immediately become Dak Prescott's No. 1 target, the two holdovers will be fighting for the other starting spot. The rookie showed flashes of his upside while putting together his best performance to date in Sunday's loss to Washington, catching three of five targets for 81 yards and his first NFL touchdown, but Hurns' experience as a possession complement to a more explosive teammate -- the role he filled in Jacksonville opposite Allen Robinson -- will likely provide him with an edge over Gallup in the playing-time battle. The third-round pick is still a big part of the Cowboys' future, but the team's low-volume passing game won't provide him with many chances to make a fantasy impact in a depth role behind Cooper, Hurns and slot receiver Cole Beasley.
Gallup played 56 of 66 snaps (85 percent) on offense during his career-best performance in Sunday's 20-17 loss to Washington.
The Cowboys used a rotation of five or six wide receivers for the first few weeks of the season, but they've finally settled on Gallup, Allen Hurns and Cole Beasley as their regulars, with the rooking now logging back-to-back weeks with a snap share above 80 percent. It paid off in the form of a 3-81-1 receiving line on five targets in Sunday's loss, after 59 snaps translated to just a single reception the previous week. Gallup should be locked in as a major part of the offense once Dallas returns from a Week 8 bye to face the Titans in Week 9.
Gallup caught three of five targets for 81 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Redskins.
Gallup set career highs in catches and yardage while scoring his first NFL touchdown on a beautiful 49-yard reception in the second quarter. He hadn't caught more than two passes or surpassed 45 receiving yards in the first six games, so it remains to be seen whether this is a repeatable performance at this point in his career. It should be noted that the rookie almost found the end zone last week against the Jaguars as well, only to have his diving grab ruled incomplete by a replay appeal. Gallup will enjoy a break in his first pro season next week while on bye before coming back to face the Titans in Week 9.
