The Spun: What

The good news for the Dallas Cowboys is that Dak Prescott has been removed from the injury list and is in good shape on Sunday. The bad news is that star-wide receiver Michael Gallup isn’t.

On Friday, the Cowboys ruled out Gallup for Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He had been limited in training all week due to a knee injury.

Gallup last year finished fifth to the Cowboys in receiving yards and seventh in receptions due to injuries. But Amari Cooper’s off-season departure meant he would play an even bigger role on offense this year.

Cowboys fans are understandably distraught over the loss of one of their best receivers and don’t believe the team has the weapons to stand on. Fantasy footballers point out that it will likely harm teams with Dak Prescott, while boosting teams with their other receivers:

Michael Gallup was a third-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, but quickly impressed on offense. In his second year with the team, he was a starter opposite Amari Cooper, finishing the year with 66 receptions for 1,107 yards and six touchdowns — all career highs.

But injuries limited Gallup to 35 receptions for 445 yards and two touchdowns on the league’s highest offense last year.

Will Gallup be healthy enough to make a big contribution this year?
