Dallas Cowboys
2019 Fantasy Outlook
The 81st overall pick last year, Gallup emerged as Dak Prescott's clear No. 2 target opposite Amari Cooper late in the season, culminating in a 9-6-119-0 receiving line in a playoff loss to the Rams. Overall, Gallup showed some promise - 15.4 YPC, 7.5 YPT, two 40-plus yard catches on 68 targets - despite meager production for the first half of the year. At 6-1, 198, and with 4.52 40 speed, Gallup has merely average measurables, but he was productive in college and showed good burst as a rookie. He also is reliable, dropping only one pass all year. For 2019, he'll reprise his late-season role as Cooper's complement, and while the Cowboys signed Randall Cobb and are throwing to Ezekiel Elliott more, this is not an especially deep receiving corps. There's opportunity if Gallup can further refine his skills. Read Past Outlooks

Huge performance to close out year
WRDallas Cowboys
December 29, 2019
Gallup caught five of seven targets for 98 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 47-16 win over Washington.
ANALYSIS
While the Cowboys still ended up missing the playoffs when the Eagles beat the Giants in Week 17, Gallup did everything he could to try and drag his team into the postseason, hauling in scores of four, 32 and 45 yards as Dallas pulled away in the second half. The second-year receiver finishes 2019 with 66 catches on 113 targets for 1,107 yards and six TDs, more than doubling his rookie production. With Amari Cooper's fate as a free agent still up in the air, Gallup could head into next season as the team's No. 1 WR, but regardless of his role he figures to be a key part of the Cowboys' aerial attack.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Taken in the third round, Gallup has a good chance for a prominent role as early as this year. Jason Witten and Dez Bryant's exits leave a 219-target hole in the passing attack, and Allen Hurns and Terrance Williams, who had 78 targets last year, can't fill it alone. (Moreover, Williams is returning from a broken foot and was arrested in May, so he could face a suspension.) Enter Gallup, who at 6-1, 198, and running a 4.52 40 has merely average measurables, but put up big numbers at Colorado State. Cole Beasley and Deonte Thompson are also in the mix, but unlike Gallup they're known quantities with limited upside. The Cowboys will almost certainly be a run-first team, but Gallup could quickly emerge as one of Dak Prescott's first reads when they decide to throw.
