You'll have to check the fuel pressure. My dad has a 98 GMC and one day it wouldn't start. I checked the fuel pressure and found it 3 psi below it's recommended fuel pressure so as you see, even if the pump is providing pressure, if the pressure isn't up to factory measure it won't start. Hard to believe 3 psi below would have a effect on it, but it does. We played around with it by replacing the filter and the pressure came up another 1 psi, which was enough to make the truck idle, but the second the throttle was pressed it would go dead. We replaced the fuel pump and it's ran fine since and that's been 4 plus years ago.
