Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Surgery on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup (knee) is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery to trim his meniscus and is expected to miss 2-to-4 weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Gallup suffered the knee injury during Sunday's divisional win over the Redskins. It's positive news that the second-year pro avoided structural damage aside from his meniscus tear, giving him a short-term recovery timeline. Gallup compiled 226 receiving yards and led the Cowboys' receiving corps in targets through two games, and his absence will be a notable blow to the team's offense. Randall Cobb will serve as the No. 2 wideout behind Amari Cooper as the Cowboys host Miami in Week 3.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: May have escaped with contusion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys hope Gallup's knee injury is just a contusion, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

It sounds like the team is cautiously optimistic ahead of Gallup's MRI on Monday. He was injured early in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 31-21 win over Washington when a defender's helmet hit his left knee. Gallup quickly stood up and walked off the field, but he did show a bit of a limp and never returned to the game. He finished with six catches for 68 yards on a team-high eight targets, bringing his season total to 226 yards through two games. The Cowboys host the Dolphins in Week 3.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Set for MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup suffered a knee injury late in Sunday's win over Washington and will go in for an MRI on Monday, Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News reports.

This news certainly puts a damper on what's been a tremendous start to Gallup's sophomore season, as he's piled up 226 receiving yards through two games. Expect more information to come out once the results of Gallup's MRI become known.

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

Gallup caught six of eight targets for 68 yards during Sunday's 31-21 win over the Redskins.

Gallup fell short of the 158 yards he piled up last week, but he still led the team in targets and receptions. There were many storylines surrounding the team leading into the season, which perhaps overshadowed the second-year wideout's emergence into a reliable contributor. Gallup has already totaled 226 yards while hauling in 13 of 15 targets, putting him on pace to blow past the numbers he posted in his rookie season. He should have plenty of opportunities to continue his strong start next Sunday at home against a terrible Dolphins team.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Career-best performance in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup caught all seven of his targets for 158 yards in Sunday's 35-17 win over the Giants.

While he wasn't on the receiving end of one of Dak Prescott's four TD passes on the afternoon, Gallup was instrumental in setting them up, and he nearly doubled his prior career high of 81 receiving yards in Week 7 of last year. The extraordinary performance from the entire Dallas passing game under new offensive coordinator Kellen Moore bodes well for Gallup's chances of having a breakout second NFL campaign.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Catches TD pass versus Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup caught one of his three targets for a 12-yard touchdown during Saturday's 34-0 preseason win against the Texans.

While Gallup hauled in just one pass thrown his way, he made the most of it by shrugging off a defender and making a contested catch in the end zone on the team's second drive of the game. He nearly added a beautiful 21-yard catch and run to the end zone on the next possession, only to see it called back because of a penalty. There is a good chance Gallup is rested for the final exhibition contest against the Buccaneers, but he appears poised to take a step forward once the regular season begins.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Catches both targets in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup caught both his targets for 19 yards during Saturday's 17-9 preseason loss to the 49ers.

Gallup got the start and made an immediate impact by turning Dak Prescott's first pass attempt into a 16-yard gain. He nearly made an excellent catch on a deep attempt the very next play but settled for a defensive pass interference call. Gallup made significant strides in the latter stages of his rookie season and appears to be building on that body of work thus far during camp. He'll likely play deeper into the game next Saturday against the Rams.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Looking to emerge as deep threat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup (leg) thinks improved chemistry with Dak Prescott should allow him to become a consistent deep threat, Nick Eatman of DallasCowboys.com reports. "If you've been watching us out there in the OTAs and minicamp, we've gotten much better," Gallup said Wednesday. "I think we've got a better feel for each other and where I'm going to be and everything. I'm pretty excited about that part."

He showed plenty of field-stretching potential as a rookie -- 10 of Gallup's 33 catches last year went for 20 or more yards, but he also had a handful of near-misses on deep tosses. The second-year receiver will likely have to be more productive and efficient with his targets if he's going to take a step forward in 2019, because it's hard to project a big increase in his volume with Amari Cooper and Ezekiel Elliott being Prescott's primary options, and Randall Cobb and Jason Witten also pushing for looks. Even if Gallup is capped at about six targets a game -- he averaged 5.5 a game after last season's bye week, including two playoff contests -- he could still put up strong numbers if he's able to turn them into big gains on a regular basis.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Gets hurt at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup exited Wednesday's practice after experiencing tightness in his leg, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports. "We didn't want to risk anything, so we just took him out," wide receivers coach Sanjay Lal said.

It doesn't sound as though Gallup is dealing with anything too severe, but his status is now worth monitoring through next week's mandatory minicamp, which starts Tuesday. If he can make it back on the field next week, there shouldn't be any concern for Gallup's availability for training camp this summer. Despite the offseason addition of Randall Cobb, the second-year receiver looks to be among the favorites to open the season in a starting role.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Posts biggest total in playoff game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Scores receiving touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Gets into end zone in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup brought in three of four targets for 53 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys' 27-20 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday.

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.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Blanked against Colts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup failed to see a target in Sunday's 23-0 loss to the Colts.

The goose egg comes one game after the rookie drew a season-high nine targets in a win over 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.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Eagles, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

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.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Expected to go Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup (illness), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, is expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The ailment that prevent Gallup from practicing Friday apparently isn't too serious in nature, so after getting Saturday off to recover, the rookie should be ready to fill a regular role in three-receiver formations alongside Amari Cooper and Cole Beasley. Gallup is coming off a big game in the Week 13 upset win over the Saints during which he hauled in a career-high five balls for 76 yards, while he draws a favorable matchup against an injury-depleted Philadelphia secondary.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Misses practice with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup didn't participate in Friday's practice due to an illness and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

The ailment isn't a major concern for the rookie wideout, with Todd Archer of ESPN.com relaying that the prevailing belief is that Gallup will be ready to go come Sunday. With averages of 2.6 receptions, 45.2 yards and 5.3 targets per game over the Cowboys' last six outings, Gallup seems to have inched ahead of both Cole Beasley and Allen Hurns as the top complement to clear No. 1 receiver Amari Cooper.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Impressive in Week 13 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup brought in five of seven targets for 76 yards in the Cowboys' 13-10 win over the Saints on Thursday.

Gallup's receiving yardage total not only led the Cowboys on the night, but it also served as a career-best figure for the rookie. Gallup did most of his damage in the first half, with a 40-yard reception on the first drive of the game that brought the ball to the Saints' six-yard line serving as the high point. Gallup's production continues to be hard to trust on a game-to-game basis, but the Colorado State product will look to build on this performance in a pivotal Week 14 divisional showdown against the Eagles on Dec. 9.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Targeted six times on Thanksgiving
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup caught two of six passes for 19 yards during Dallas' 31-23 Thanksgiving win over Washington.

After facing a family tragedy, Gallup wasn't focusing on football, but the rookie receiver was still featured in the game plan with six targets, tied for second on the team. Following the acquisition of Amari Cooper, targets haven't been Gallup's issue: He has at least five in three of the four games. Making much out of them has been more difficult: He has been held under 35 yards in three straight games and hasn't scored since Cooper joined the squad. Thursday brings a Saints defense ranked 31st in the league in opponent passing yards at 303 per game.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Back with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup (personal) rejoined the team Wednesday and will be available to play in the Cowboys' Thanksgiving Day game against the Redskins, Kate Hairopoulos of The Dallas Morning News reports.

The receiver had been listed as a non-participant in Dallas' first two practices of Week 12 while he remained in Georgia following the death of his brother. Gallup's arrival at the team facility Wednesday suggests he'll take part in the Cowboys' final practice of the week, which should be enough for him to fill his normal role on offense Thursday. The rookie has seemingly emerged as the Cowboys' preferred option alongside Amari Cooper in two-receiver sets, as Gallup has logged more snaps than both Cole Beasley and Allen Hurns in each of the past five games.

Cowboys' Michael Gallup: Intending to play Thanksgiving Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallup (personal) said he intends to play in Thursday's game against the Redskins, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Following the Cowboys' 22-19 win over the Falcons this weekend, the rookie remained in Georgia to be with his family in the wake of his brother's death. The arrangements for his brother's funeral are still pending, but it appears Gallup plans on rejoining the Cowboys in Dallas ahead of the Thanksgiving Day game. Gallup started and played 52 of the Cowboys' 64 offensive snaps in Week 11, but his role could be more limited Thursday while he likely misses out on practice time leading up to the contest.
