Michael Gallup Fantasy Football Ranking
In our preseason fantasy football rankings, we had Gallup ranked as the #38 receiver on the board given the uncertainty surrounding his injury recovery. But given his quick turnaround, perhaps there’s more value on the wideout than previously thought.
After Dallas lost Amari Cooper in the offseason, it’s clear that they could use the vertical presence Gallup would bring to their offense after the first two weeks of the season.
“Let’s make it clear. Michael Gallup‘s a number one receiver in my view,” Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said ahead of the season. “I think we’re fortunate to have three players with that level of potential to go out and play at that level. The reality is everyone wants to live by numbers but it really comes down to opportunities.”
Whenever he returns from injury, Gallup is bound to have plenty of opportunities to show his worth is a less-crowded receiver room than last season.
