I just don't believe that Allen Hurns, Deonte Thompson, and Cole Beasley are going to be the Cowboys starting wide receivers for long. Gallup is the one wide receiver on that team with the ability to potentially be a top-30 wide receiver in this league and it's not going to happen sitting on the bench behind the B-squad. Even if he doesn't start Week 1, it's only a matter of time before they start giving him reps, and he'll quickly become Dak Prescott's go-to receiver, giving you multiple usable fantasy weeks in the process.

Michael Gallup looks like 'the real deal' to teammates

In an interview with The Dallas Morning News, second-year defensive back Chidobe Awuzie singled out rookie wideout Michael Gallup for praise, saying "He's the real deal. The stuff he's doing now he wasn't really doing when I faced him [at Colorado]." Awuzie also talked about Gallup's preparation and effort, saying "He's a very cerebral guy. He knows how to get off the ball, not a lot of receivers know how to get off press consistently. He's one of those guys that does."

Fantasy Impact

After the release of WR Dez Bryant and retirement of TE Jason Witten, there are plenty of targets unaccounted for in Dallas and Gallup will compete with Allen Hurns for WR1 duties in Year One. Of all the rookie wideouts, Gallup may have the easiest path to an immediate starting role, which makes him worthy of first-round consideration in rookie-only drafts and worth a look as a WR5 in redraft leagues.
