What You Need to Know:

  • Gallup has led the Cowboys in average depth of target 3 of his 4 seasons (minimum 15 targets). The other year found him trailing Amari Cooper and Tavon Austin, neither of whom is still around.
  • He has also led Cowboys WR starters in yards before catch per reception 3 of 4 years, trailing Cooper by just 0.1 in that category last season.
  • Gallup’s 15.0 yards per catch through his 4 seasons stand 1.3+ ahead of any other wideout who has played for Dallas in that span; 1.7 ahead of both Cooper and CeeDee Lamb.
  • The downfield worker tore his left ACL on Jan. 2.
  • Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) admitted that he won't be ready to play Week 1, calling it "not a reasonable possibility.”
  • He lost 7 other games to a calf strain early in the season.
  • The Cowboys still re-signed him for $57.5 million over 5 years. They also traded away Cooper and let Cedrick Wilson walk in free agency.
  • Gallup reached 5 receptions 4 times in 2021 but never exceeded that number. He reached 10 targets only once. He reached 10 targets in 2 games in 2020; 5 in 2019.
  • Gallup has seen more than 11% of his targets come in the end zone each of the past 2 years, leading Cowboys wideouts in that category each time.
  • He has yet to crack 19% in target share for a season.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Like CeeDee Lamb, Gallup has a decent shot at setting a new career high in target share. The departures of Amari Cooper and Cedrick Wilson are primary factors there. Gallup has operated on high-value targets through his 4 seasons, working further downfield than other Cowboys wideouts and increasing his end-zone presence the past 2 years. And Dallas clearly committed to him in free agency. But Gallup needs to show that he’s back from the left ACL tear that knocked him out in Week 17. That’s a short window for the start of the season, and Gallup’s reliance on explosive plays seems to heighten the challenge in that area. We’ll be watching him closely through summer. For now, the 5th-year wideout is not someone we’re targeting in drafts.

Cowboys WR Noah Brown (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Bears. He didn’t practice all week, so he’ll obviously be at less than 100% if he suits up this weekend. Brown should not be in your Week 8 fantasy plans. His absence would leave a few extra targets for WRs CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup.

Cowboys WR Noah Brown (foot) missed practice again on Thursday. His absence this weekend vs. the Bears would leave a few extra targets for WRs CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) is not listed on the final injury report after a full week of practice. He's set to make his 2022 debut vs. Washington on Sunday. It's unclear if Gallup will play a full slate of snaps in his 1st game since the torn ACL, though, so we'd leave him on fantasy benches this week.
