McLaurin was pretty quiet in Week 1 with 5 receptions for 61 yards, he is a boom / bust WR2 against a Cardinals D that allowed the fewest points to fantasy wide receivers in Week 1, in large part due to their matchup with the 49ers.Gallup is a bit risky because he may not see a ton of targets on a deep offense, but he has a great matchup and should be in the WR3 discussion.
Jacob Wayne
Lineups
Both Washington and Arizona looked great in Week 1, but only one of these teams is for real. The Cardinals have finally put together the defensive personnel to make Vance Joseph's impressive schemes click, and Patrick Peterson looked renewed against the 49ers. Terry McLaurin was still solid in Week 1 against a tough matchup in the Eagles, but this could be an even tougher matchup. However, I expect the Cardinals to get up early in this game and Washington to need to throw the ball a lot more than last week, so McLaurin should be a solid WR2 on volume alone.The Falcons' cornerbacks were outgunned and undermanned against the Seahawks' receivers and Russell Wilson last week, and things don't get any easier for them against the Cowboys. Amari Cooper is still the top target in this offense, but I expect Dak Prescott to throw the ball enough in this one to support great games for both of them. Gallup is a high-upside WR3 most weeks, but treat him like a must-start WR2 in this matchup.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Michael Gallup gets a great matchup against Isaiah Oliver in this game. Gallup was a "weak call" away from having a huge game on Sunday night and there's a very real possibility that we see him go for over 100 yards and a score in this matchup. All signs point towards Gallup having a great fantasy day. Start him as a WR2 with huge upside this week.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
One of the benefits of being a team's No. 1 receiver is that you'll get targeted the most. One of the drawbacks is that you'll see the opposing No. 1 cornerback more often than not. McLaurin had to deal with Darius Slay last week and will now deal with Patrick Peterson this week. In their matchup against the 49ers, he didn't allow a single catch on the three targets he saw in coverage. Now, that was against essentially all backups, but Peterson has been one of the best cornerbacks in football for quite some time. Still, we can't anticipate Washington getting the ball in their opponent's territory over and over like they did last week, which should lead to a lot more than the 31 pass attempts that Haskins had last week. We can't ignore all the volume McLaurin can get as the top option, either. He was able to muster up 5/61/0 on seven targets against Slay last week, too. You should be willing to play him as a low-end WR2 in this matchup, and one who comes with a solid floor.We talked about Gallup last week, saying that he had the toughest matchup on the Cowboys, as he only goes into the slot about 10 percent of the time, which was the spot to do damage. The Falcons, however, are prime for the taking. They allowed 56 passing plays of 20-plus yards last year, which ranked as the 10th most in football. Gallup will see Isaiah Oliver in coverage most of the time, a third-year cornerback who's been a disappointment as a former second-round pick. Throughout his two-plus years of play, he's allowed 84 receptions for 1,090 yards and seven touchdowns on 127 targets. That all adds up to a 108.1 QB Rating in his coverage. Dating back to last year, Gallup has seen at least six targets in 12-of-15 games. If he gets that here, he's performing. While Gallup was someone I was lower on last week, he should be able to return WR3 value in this game with top-20 potential if he were to hit on a big play.
