Cowboys Stud: Michael Gallup, WR
Michael Gallup has quietly become a go-to weapon for Dak Prescott this season. After a frustrating 2022 campaign, he looks healthy and has been back to making clutch plays. And he's been one of the first people Dak looks for to start games on the right note.
In Week 4, Gallup had a 28-yard reception on the second play of the game, moving the ball into New England territory and helping to set up an early field goal.
On their second drive, Gallup also made a play that won't show up in the stat sheet. On first-and-10 from their own 38, CeeDee Lamb took a reverse to the right side and gained 12 yards for a first down. One of the main reasons he was able to move the sticks was a great block on the edge by Gallup who is one of the more selfless players on the team.
He continued to prove he's still a reliable target for Prescott throughout the game, including when he caught a 19-yard pass on third-and-six in the third quarter. That moved the chains and while they didn't wind up punching the ball in for six, the catch from Gallup moved them into scoring range and they wound up with another three points when Brandon Aubrey knocked in another short field goal.
Gallup finished with five receptions for 60 yards on six targets. His play helped to open things up for others and if he continues to play at this level, the Dallas offense is going to be nearly impossible to stop.
