Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Targets remained close among Dallas’ top 3 wideouts last season. Amari Cooper led at 8.1 per game, vs. 6.9 for CeeDee Lamb and 6.6 for Gallup. The weekly medians for each player: Cooper 7.5, Lamb 7, Gallup 6.
  • Gallup led the trio in targets 4 times last season and tied for the lead 2 other times. All 6 of those occasions came after Dak Prescott’s injury.
  • Even at 3rd among Dallas wideouts in targets last year, Gallup still ranked 31st among all WRs.
  • Cowboys WRs drew 62.3% of the team’s targets, 8th highest in the league and the position’s largest share in Dallas since 2017.
  • The Dallas offense went 61.4% pass in 2020, it’s largest passing lean since 2013 but just 11th most pass-heavy in the league. The Cowboys leaned pass even more with Dak Prescott in the lineup, but they also won just 1 of his 4 full games -- and even that 1 took a big comeback.
  • Gallup works downfield more than both Cooper and Lamb. He has led the Cowboys in average depth of target in each of his 3 seasons.
  • According to Pro Football Focus, that number has come down each year: from 14.38 in 2018 to 13.46 and then 12.70. Last year found Gallup posting a 17.55 ADOT over Prescott’s 4 full games, though, then 11.11 from Week 6 on. (Prescott went down in Week 5.)

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Gallup faces plenty of target competition from Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb, capping his ceiling in that area. But we’d bet on these Cowboys continuing to pass on more than 60% of offensive plays and growing that target pie for the entire offense. Gallup hung close to Cooper and Lamb in targets last season, sees his targets deeper downfield and carries an ADP 7 rounds behind his WR teammates.

That makes him a solid addition in best-ball drafts right now, though it also puts him right in the range of our projection for him. The situation gives Gallup weekly upside but will almost make it tough to count on him week to week in fantasy lineups.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup suffered a hip pointer in Sunday's win over the 49ers, according to the Dallas Morning News' Michael Gehlken. It's a relatively minor injury, and Gallup hasn't been ruled out for this weekend's game vs. the Eagles. We'll monitor his status throughout the week. Gallup was a fringy fantasy option at 100%, though, so he probably shouldn't be in your Week 16 plans.
