Michael Gallup, WR (DAL)

Headed for No. 1 wideout role

Gallup is expected to serve as Dallas' No. 1 wideout Thursday against the Raiders with Amari Cooper (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list and with CeeDee Lamb (concussion) listed as questionable but not in line to play, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

During the nine games in which both have appeared this season, Cooper and Lamb have averaged a combined 15.3 targets per contest. That leaves plenty of volume up for grabs among the Dallas pass catchers, and Gallup should rank at the top of the pecking order for targets among the available options. After Cooper sat out last week's loss to the Chiefs and Lamb exited early due to the head injury, Gallup finished with 10 targets, though he only caught five of them for 44 yards.
