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

Looking to emerge as deep threat
WRDallas Cowboys
Leg
June 20, 2019
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."
ANALYSIS
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 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. He missed a few offseason practices with a minor leg injury, but then participated in June minicamp.

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.
