Michael Gallup 2020 Dynasty Outlook
Michael Gallup spent his first 2 years of college at Butler Community College in order to get his grades up. He had a mediocre freshman year and was injured all but 3 games in his sophomore year. His stand out game came against Dodge City Community College where he put up 287 yards and 3 TDs. He only had 493 yards and 8 TDs in the other 10 games which doesn’t necessarily jump off the page.
Fortunately, the Colorado State Rams saw the potential in Gallup. He transferred there for his junior and senior year where he put the NCAA on notice! He blossomed into a legitimate top WR in the 2018 NFL Draft after putting up 2,690 yards off 176 receptions and 21 TDs in his 2 years as a Ram. He was a Consensus All-American and a Fred Biletnikoff Award finalist in 2017 and went on to be the 9th WR drafted in 2018.
With the 81st overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys selected Michael Gallup, WR from Colorado State University.
He found his way immediately onto the field his rookie year and was a starter by week 6. He didn’t make much of an impact though, posting 507 yards off 33 receptions and 2 TDs. He took a huge leap into year 2 playing no less than 78% of offensive snaps in every game, excluding the 2 games he missed and the game in which he got injured. Gallup surpassed the 1,000 yard mark, posting 1,107 yards on 66 receptions and 6 scores. He had 9 double digit fantasy point games, with 3 being in the 20’s and 1 in the 30’s.
Micheal Gallup was a highly coveted player coming into the 2020 NFL Draft until he took a major hit with the Cowboys drafting CeeDee Lamb with their 17th pick. So much for a year 3 breakout? That’s the question we’re all asking.
Michael Gallup Dynasty Outlook – Beyond 2020
It’s hard not to imagine CeeDee Lamb taking over as the Cowboys WR2, leaving Michael Gallup to drop down to the WR3 position on his own team. Unfortunately for 2020 and beyond, Gallup’s outlook is trending down. The only thing I see helping his stock is Cooper or Lamb getting injured (which nobody hopes for) or traded. Keep your eyes out for where Gallup is on the depth chart to start the 2020 season.
Michael Gallup was WR22 last year in PPR leagues. I do not see him repeating that same value with the addition of CeeDee Lamb. His ADP since the draft has dropped to #67 overall and #31 among WRs which is still respectable. Does anyone truly expect Dak Prescott to supply 3 WRs with WR2 numbers or better? I don’t. That doesn’t mean he doesn’t hold value though.
In 1 QB leagues, his value is a late round 1st round pick. I believe that’s too high for him, with a mid 2nd rounder being a more realistic asking or return price for him. His player value is comparable to Le’Veon Bell, Chris Carson, DeVante Parker, James Connor, Christian Kirk, Justin Jefferson and Jalen Reagor. If I own him, I’d immediately sell him for all but Connor and possibly Kirk.
SuperFlex leagues offer similar values for Gallup, being a late round 1st rounder. I’d still say a mid-round 2nd is more sensible. All players listed for 1 QB correlate with the addition of Darren Waller, Kareem Hunt and Hunter Henry. It’s really hard for me to believe that Gallup will even come close to reaching this value again. If you can get this kind of value of him, just know that his peak has come and gone.
I see his value as a flex player as his new ceiling.
