Michael Gallup Week 5 Outlook - Giants at Cowboys

By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Thu, Oct 8th 2020, 8:59am EDT

It hasn't been the start to the year that Gallup drafters wanted, though he has seen at least five targets in each game, and his targets are worth more than most as he's being targeted 17.4 yards down the field on average, which ranks second to only Marquise Brown. He's 10th in the league in air yards, which typically leads to production, especially when you have a good quarterback. He's also run more routes than any other receiver in the league, so the vital signs are good with him. While Amari Cooper is likely to draw James Bradberry in coverage this week, that would leave Gallup with former undrafted free agent Ryan Lewis in coverage. He's been on three teams over the last three years and has never had a season where he's seen more than 34 targets in coverage. The Giants still haven't allowed a receiver more than 70 yards this year, but this is a matchup that Gallup can/should win. His lack of results must be accounted for but that doesn't mean you can't play him as a WR3 who has a better matchup than Cooper.
