2019 Fantasy Outlook
Taken with 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 game in the 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 was also 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, i.e., there's opportunity here if Gallup takes the next step in Year 2.

Gallup caught six passes (nine targets) for 119 yards in Saturday's 30-22 loss to the Rams.
ANALYSIS
Dak Prescott was finding Gallup wide open on several occasions, allowing the rookie wideout to post career-high numbers in a crucial playoff contest. Part of the reason Gallup was able to get so many open looks was the Rams' obvious gameplan to make sure Amari Cooper didn't beat them. The 22-year-old flashed some promise at times this year, but if he can have more games like Saturday's next season, then it would go a long way in keeping opposing defenses honest while also creating some potential fantasy value in the process.

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.
