The Athletic's Jon Machota suggests that wide receiver Michael Gallup is a potential cut candidate this offseason. The 27-year-old has three years left on the five-year, $57.5 million extension he signed in March of 2022. He was coming off a season-ending knee injury when he signed that deal, and he hasn't been the same player since. Gallup averaged 975 receiving yards and 5.5 touchdowns per season in 2019 and 2020, but he hasn't had more than 445 yards in a season since. He caught all six of his targets for 103 yards in the wild-card loss to the Packers, his best game of the last two years. If Dallas cuts Gallup before June, they'll be left with $13 million in dead-cap money in 2024, which would only save them around $800,000 in 2024 because his cap hit for 2024 is $13.85 million. A pay cut is probably coming for Gallup if he's not released.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup gained over 100 yards all of a sudden in the Wild Card Weekend loss to the Green Bay Packers. Gallup was targeted six times, making all six catches for 103 yards, including a long gain of 42 yards. It was the first 100-yard game of the season for Gallup, but it was ultimately not enough to keep the Cowboys season alive. Gallup disappeared for most of the season and despite this solid playoff performance, will probably be way down on most draft boards next season.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup is not a fantasy option in a Week 17 game against the Detroit Lions. Gallup has made just seven total catches in his past five games, and has scored just two touchdowns all season. The Cowboys passing game runs through CeeDee Lamb with a little help from Brandin Cooks and Jake Ferguson. Gallup has a blocking role on the real offense, but that's not helpful in fantasy lineups. He should remain on the waiver wire in almost all formats.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup continued to struggle in a Week 16 loss to the Miami Dolphins. Gallup was targeted twice in the passing game and made both catches, but ended up gaining a total of just four yards. It was another poor performance in a season that's unfortunately been full of them for Gallup, who has now seemingly fallen behind Jalen Tolbert in the Dallas wide receiver pecking order. He's no longer worth rostering in any formats, in case anyone's still holding on for some reason.
Dec 24, 2023 8:20 PM EST
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup is not a legitimate fantasy option in most leagues in a Week 16 game against the Miami Dolphins. Gallup made just one catch last week and has put up double digit fantasy points just twice in his past 11 games. He plays a role on the "real life" Cowboys offense, but it is not a fantasy relevant one and he shouldn't even be rostered in the majority of formats.
Dec 21, 2023 9:24 PM EST
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup made just one catch in a Week 15 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Gallup was targeted only once despite quarterback Dak Prescott throwing the ball 34 times. He made his catch for a nine yard gain. Gallup shouldn't have been in any fantasy lineups this week, and likely won't change that opinion next week when the Cowboys face the Dolphins.
Dec 17, 2023 8:14 PM EST
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup scored a touchdown last week but remains a risky, low-floor option in a Week 15 game against the Buffalo Bills. Gallup made three catches for 48 yards and a touchdown last week, but had made just one catch for 13 yards in his previous two games combined. He's a very low-floor option with not much upside. Most fantasy leagues will have safer and higher-upside options on the waiver wire this week.
Dec 14, 2023 12:03 PM EST
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup scored a touchdown in a Week 14 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Gallup was targeted five times, making three catches for 48 yards, including a one-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Dak Prescott at the end of the first half. It was only the second touchdown of the season in what's been mostly a tough year for Gallup, but he'll have another chance to keep his arrow pointing up against the Buffalo Bills next week.
Dec 11, 2023 1:11 AM EST
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup has had a tough season, but may have hit rock bottom in a Week 13 win against the Seattle Seahawks. Gallup was targeted just once and was unable to make the catch in a game where quarterback Dak Prescott threw the ball 41 times. Any lineups with Gallup in them got a zero from that position and might as well have left the roster spot open. In almost all leagues, Gallup should be dropped or left alone on the waiver wire.
Dec 1, 2023 12:19 AM EST
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup is not a recommended fantasy option for most Week 13 fantasy lineups. Gallup had just one catch in Week 12 despite a blowout win for the Cowboys, and has only finished in the top-30 of fantasy wide receivers twice this season. For four straight weeks, he has finished fourth in snaps for Cowboys wide receivers, behind CeeDee Lamb, Brandin Cooks, and Jalen Tolbert. Gallup is unstartable at this point and is very close to being unrosterable in all but the deepest formats.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup saw just one target in a Thanksgiving Week 12 win over the Washington Commanders. Gallup caught his lone target for a 13-yard gain. Jalen Brooks, KaVontae Turpin, and Jalen Tolbert all had significantly better performances than Gallup, who continues to slide further and further away from any fantasy relevance. He'll likely need multiple injuries ahead of him to have anything close to a significant role in the Cowboys passing game.
Nov 23, 2023 11:14 PM EST
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup (personal) missed practice on Tuesday but it was for non-injury reasons, and he should be ready to go for a Thanksgiving game against the Washington Commanders. Gallup has started to find somewhat of a groove lately, settling in as the third wide receiver option on a team that has moved the ball well through the air. He plays a much more important role on the Cowboys than he would on any fantasy team, but he's a worthwhile WR4/5 in deeper leagues with occasional touchdown upside.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup scored his first touchdown of the season in Week 10 and will look to build on that success in a Week 11 game against the Carolina Panthers. Gallup has been a distant third on the wide receiver depth chart this season behind CeeDee Lamb and Brandin Cooks, but he was able to pick up 70 yards and a touchdown in Week 10 against the Giants. That was the good part. The bad part was that he was still only targeted twice and almost all of his fantasy points came on one play. With the Cowboys passing game absolutely on fire right now, Gallup may be worth the risk in deeper leagues, but he comes with a near-zero floor that can be concerning in most formats.
Nov 16, 2023 2:05 PM EST
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup scored a touchdown in a Week 10 blowout win over the New York Giants. Gallup saw just two targets, but made them count, catching two passes for 70 yards. His touchdown came from 41 yards out in the third quarter and was his first touchdown of the season. It was good to see Gallup involved, but ultimately he ended the game with just two targets, showing that he's far back on quarterback Dak Prescott's passing progression. Week 11 against the Panthers will give Gallup another chance to work his way up.
Nov 13, 2023 12:59 AM EST
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup remains off the fantasy radar in a Week 10 matchup against the New York Jets. Gallup has been playing in a support role in the Cowboys offense, making three or fewer catches for four games in a row. He has only one game with double digit fantasy points this season. While his role on the Dallas offense is fairly consistent, his target share is nearly an afterthought, making him unstartable in just about every format. Gallup should stay on the bench or even on the waiver wire in most leagues.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup (illness) was a full participant in Friday's practice and carries no injury designation for Week 9 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Gallup opened the week with a DNP on Wednesday but has now logged back-to-back full practice sessions and will play in Week 9 against the Eagles. Gallup has a subpar receiving line for the season, catching 20 passes (35 targets) for just 224 scoreless in seven games played but he's got a shot to perform on Sunday. The Cowboys-Eagles game has the third-highest over/under point total (47) in the NFL this week so there should be plenty of opportunity for Gallup, who is still looking for his touchdown of the season, to make some noise. With that said, he still carries some risk and should be looked at as more of a deep-league FLEX play.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup (illness) was a full participant in practice on Thursday after being held out on Wednesday due to an illness. Gallup is still searching for his first touchdown of the season as he heads into a Week 9 date with the division-rival Philadelphia Eagles. His production -- 20 catches on 35 targets for 224 yards in seven games -- leaves a lot to be desired, but the 27-year-old pass-catcher could be a fantasy sleeper in redraft and DFS this weekend in a game that could feature plenty of points. Philadelphia's defense has allowed the most half-PPR fantasy points to wideouts so far this year with 37.5 and they've surrendered 134 receptions for 1,528 yards and 12 touchdowns.
Nov 2, 2023 6:16 PM EST
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup (illness) is tough to trust in fantasy lineups in Week 9 despite a strong matchup on paper. Gallup faces the Philadelphia Eagles, who have allowed the most points per target to outside receivers, but Gallup has done little with the opportunities he's been given in 2023. In Week 6 against the Chargers, Gallup saw 10 targets and was only able to make three catches for 24 scoreless yards. The usage has been there, but the results just haven't, leaving Gallup as a bench stash at best in most formats, at least for now. He missed a practice this week with an illness designation, but it doesn't seem like something the team is particularly concerned about in terms of his status for Sunday's game.
Nov 2, 2023 11:43 AM EST
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup (illness) is not practicing on Wednesday. The 27-year-old is dealing with an illness. Gallup has 35 targets in seven games this season, ranking only behind CeeDee Lamb (56) among Cowboys' pass-catchers. Gallup will have plenty of time to get back on the field for the Week 9 contest against the Philadelphia Eagles, but if he cannot, Brandin Cooks would become a desirable fantasy option since he's scored a touchdown in each of his last two games. The Eagles have allowed the most fantasy points per game to wide receivers this season, so both Gallup and Cooks are comfortably on the fantasy radar as flex options if they suit up.
Nov 1, 2023 2:26 PM EST
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup made two catches in a Week 8 win over the Los Angeles Rams. Gallup saw three targets and caught two of them for 20 yards. CeeDee Lamb was almost the whole passing game in this one, as he drew 14 targets, but Gallup has been playing in mostly a support role and does not have much fantasy value in this offense. The Cowboys take on the Eagles next week.
