Gallup Could Be Cowboy’s WR1
July 30th | 2018
Cowboys rookie Michael Gallup has been impressive early on. Some believe that Gallup has a real opportunity to take the wide receiver one spot on this roster if he continues to work hard and can stay healthy this summer.
The receiver group for the Dallas Cowboys went through an overhaul this offseason. Dez Bryant is gone and the team signed former Jacksonville Jaguars wideout Allen Hurns to a two year $12 million deal to try and pick up the slack. The Cowboys also have Terrence Williams and Cole Beasly returning from last season. However, many are hoping the 81st overall pick, Michael Gallup can contribute right away.
Gallup is drawing praise from his new teammates this training camp, Hurns told Dallas Morning News “I’ve been very impressed”
This kind of encouragement will help with the young rookie’s confidence this season. Gallup totaled 2,690 receiving yards and 21 touchdowns while at Colorado St, so he can be the guy that the Dallas Cowboys are hoping for. Gallup will need to show consistency during camp leading into preseason to secure the top wideout spot, and he has the ability in doing so. His chemistry with quarterback Dak Prescott is also going to be very important this season.
My Fantasy Take
Gallup is a wide receiver that I am targeting in all of my dynasty leagues. I love his upside and ability to become the Cowboys number one wideout early. If you get a chance to draft him, I suggest in doing so. When it comes to redraft leagues Gallup is someone that you could take in the later rounds to take a chance on. Gallup may not generate the numbers at first, but I feel as the season moves forward he will take the wide receiver one spot on this Cowboys roster.
