1. Michael Gallup, WR
Not too long ago, Michael Gallup was one of the hottest names at the wide receiver position. In 2019, he had 66 receptions for 1,107 yards and six touchdowns while missing two games. The expectation was that he would put up even more impressive numbers the following season, provided he stay healthy.
While he did play in all 16 games during the 2020 campaign, Dak Prescott did not. That was a blow for Gallup, who had just 843 yards and five touchdowns.
Now heading into 2023, numbers such as those would be a welcome sight.
Gallup has been struggling to stay on the field as knee injuries forced him out of eight games in 2021. He then tore his ACL late in the year when he was finally healthy enough to play.
He returned from the surgery but was visibly slowed down. Gallup didn't look like himself throughout the year and had just 39 receptions for 424 yards and four touchdowns.
So far in offseason workouts, the coaching staff is encouraged by his progress. However, they're also no longer expecting him to be the No. 2 wideout since Brandin Cooks was brought in from Houston.
That could prove to be a better role for Gallup but it's a decline from what was expected last year when he signed a five-year, $62.5 million extension.
