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.
  • 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.

Jalen Tolbert, WR DAL

9:20pm EDT 4/30/22

Tolbert a year 1 contributor?

Jon Machota of The Athletic believes rookie WR Jalen Tolbert “should be able to immediately compete for a starting spot.” That, of course, would be the WR3 job behind CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup, who’s recovering from a January ACL tear. Consider him questionable for Week 1 right now. As for Tolbert, the words of VP of Player Personnel Will McClay speak volumes about the team’s interest. "Tolbert can play multiple spots,” McClay said. “He’s got size, he’s extremely intelligent and the type of player you want to grow in that room. The upside is there because he’s an NFL style receiver, body style, size, ability to find space to be able to play inside and outside, so that versatility made him very attractive to us.” Tolbert’s main competition will come from former Steeler James Washington, who signed just a 1-year deal worth ~$1.2 million.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones admitted that WR Michael Gallup (knee) is iffy for the start of the season. “Optimistically, I expect him to give us a question mark around the first game," Jones said. "And I see a conversation that says conservatively, you would like to have a couple more games to get him out there.” This is just confirmation considering Gallup tore his ACL on January 2. Drafters shouldn't be expecting to have him for the start of the season. As Dallas' depth chart currently stands, WR James Washington would be in for a big role for however long Gallup is out.

The Cowboys and WR Michael Gallup have agreed to a 5-year extension worth $62.5 million, according to multiple reports. This has been the expected move. The question for Gallup in 2022 will be how soon he can make it back from the ACL tear.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Cowboys are "close" to a new deal with impending free agent WR Michael Gallup. This news, of course, comes alongside the expected trade/release of WR Amari Cooper. We'll be curious to see how much Gallup commands in his extension, coming off his Week 17 ACL tear. We'll also see about Gallup's progress through the offseason in judging his 2022 outlook. He certainly carries risk as an early best-ball selection. It at least appears that you should assume he'll remain in Dallas.

WR Michael Gallup is "recovering well" from his torn ACL, according to insider Doug Kyed, and the "current expectation" is that he'll be back to 100% by August. That'd be about 7 months after his injury -- a relatively quick recovery. We'll keep an eye on Gallup's progress this offseason. And we'll see where he signs when he hits the free-agent market next month.

Dynasty Write-up
Gallup would have been an attractive dynasty asset this offseason, ahead of his age-26 season. The ACL tear challenges his short-term outlook, but it also probably lowers the price if you're still looking to buy Gallup for the longer term.
