2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
The departures of Amari Cooper and Cedrick Wilson should benefit Michael Gallup perhaps more than any other player on the Cowboys roster, but after tearing his ACL late into the 2021 season, Gallup's early-season status is still very much in question. While some reports indicate that he might be ready as early as Week 1, it seems much more likely that we're going to be looking at him being a PUP candidate to start the season, and then he'll be eased into the offense before potentially being a full-go by mid-season or so.

While Gallup definitely has some big-time upside when he does get back on the field, drafting him in your fantasy league, especially if you don't have a designated IR spot, is very risky. Even if he does avoid the PUP to start the season, it's unlikely that he's going to be someone you're confident to start right away, especially if the Cowboys aren't giving him a full snap count. The worst-case scenario, of course, is that he could never even get back to full health.

The positive, of course, is that the Cowboys made the decision to re-sign Gallup after he suffered the ACL injury. A five-year, $57.5 million deal indicates that the Cowboys expect him to be a big part of their passing game going forward and he'll be given every opportunity to do it once he's back on the field. Even if another receiver on the team breaks out early in the season, Gallup should return to being the second wide receiver in the lineup when he's back on the field.

Gallup has averaged just over 50 receiving yards per game over his past two seasons with the Cowboys, but that's been while he's operated as the third wide receiver in the offense. When he was last the WR2 in Dallas, before the team drafted CeeDee Lamb, Gallup accumulated a 1,107-yard, six touchdown campaign in just his second season in the league. That type of per-game production is not out of the realm of possibility when it comes to Gallup as long as he's able to get back to full health.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Michael Gallup getting closer to return
WR could return from ACL injury in Week 3
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 19, 11:35 pm

Dallas Cowboys
WR Michael Gallup (knee) will need a full week's worth of practice before determining his availability for Monday night against the Giants, per McCarthy. (Around The NFL)

FFToday's Take: Gallup did not begin the season on injured reserve, which is an indication the Cowboys believed he would be ready to play before Week 5. So, he is close. One silver lining during his absence is that Noah Brown has emerged as a very capable replacement through two games. However, Gallup could be needed more now with Dalton Schultz (knee) expected to miss some time.


Injury Michael Gallup rehab going "very smooth"
Cowboys WR could be a great later-round stash
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Thu Sep 1, 4:15 pm

Dallas Cowboys
Michael Gehlken (@GehlkenNFL) on Twitter: "Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (left ACL) working with director of rehabilitation Britt Brown. Mike McCarthy on Wednesday said Gallup “looks excellent. He’s getting close. He’s hit every target. His rehab is going very smooth. Just staying on the plan." (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Gallup is just outside most Top 50 WR lists heading into Week 1, but his WR4/5 status could jump to WR2/3 if he gets back some of the explosiveness he had before suffering the knee injury last season. He's worth a later-round speculative add in most 12-team leagues.


Injury Michael Gallup won't start season on PUP list
Unlikely to be ready for Week 1
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Aug 24, 6:03 pm

Dallas Cowboys
By being on 53-man roster next Tuesday, Cowboys WR Michael Gallup will be able to play sometime during season’s first four games. This doesn’t mean he will be ready Week 1 - Gallup has said he won’t be. But he’ll be available to Dallas before Week 5. (Michael Gehlken on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It's unclear when Gallup will be on the field during the regular season but avoiding the PUP list gives him a chance to make an appearance during the first four games. Gallup is coming on an ACL injury suffered in early January so it makes sense that he would be eased into the season. He's currently going around WR50 in PPR leagues.


Injury WR James Washington out with fractured right foot
Surgery to come
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Aug 1, 7:30 pm

Dallas Cowboys
As feared, Cowboys WR James Washington fractured his right foot, two people familiar with situation said. Surgery to come. Dallas to be without both Washington, Michael Gallup to begin season. (Michael Gehlken on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: More specifically, a Jones fracture for the Cowboys wideout. Gehlken also noted that this same injury put DE DeMarcus Lawrence on the shelf for 10 games in 2021. A free agent signee isn't out of the question. Rookie Jalen Tolbert, Noah Brown, and Simi Fehoko round out the current depth chart.
