If you drafted Michael Gallup as a rookie, you were admittedly disappointed. However, like everything in fantasy football, context matters. Gallup’s incoming measurables and draft capital were strong but not elite.
His landing spot in 2018 came with some question marks such as:
- A quarterback who failed to eclipse 4,000 passing yards in a season during his career
- A team that averaged 26th in the league in pass attempts during the last three seasons
- A team that averaged fifth in the league in rushing attempts during the last three seasons
However, we’ve seen some incredible growth throughout his first two seasons in the league.
Let’s take a closer look at the data and find out why Gallup is primed for an even bigger 2020.
Gallup’s Two-Year Progression
Considering the context of his situation, Gallup produced modest numbers during his rookie season. A key stat to keep in mind is this: a whopping 31% of his rookie targets were considered to be “off target” which was good for sixth highest in the league.
