Since trade to Dallas in Week 9 last season, WR Amari Cooper has five touchdown catches of at least 20 yards, tied for most in NFL with Antonio Brown. ... WR Michael Gallup expected to miss two to four weeks with knee injury after leading Cowboys in catches (13) and yards (226) through two games. ... Fantasy tip: With Gallup out, Devin Smith should be intriguing add after 51-yard score against Redskins for second career TD (other came as rookie in 2015).
