Week 4- Dez Bryant isn’t Romo’s top guy, and the Cowboys’ Offense likely won’t get much going against the Bears. Bryant just struggled with the Bucs Defense that had just allowed huge games to Cruz and Nicks the week before. He’s just a WR3 for week 4.
Week 3- Like Miles Austin, Dez Bryant gets the Bucs horrible pass defense in week 3. After seeing Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz both go for over 175 yards and a TD in week 2, you know that both of them can produce. He has huge upside for this game and should remain in your lineup as a high-end WR2 for week 3.
Week 1- With Miles Austin dealing with a hamstring injury, expect Dez Bryant to receive no shortage of targets. The Giants’ poor secondary could have some trouble containing Bryant in this one, and if it’s true he’s resolved his conditioning issues he could have a huge game. Consider Bryant a high-end WR2 for week 1, but could easily have a WR1 type game.
At 23 years of age, Bryant is still fresh enough to beat every shutdown corner, and hungry enough to have a big year. He has struggled through the preseason with patella tendinitis, but expects to be healthy for the start of the regular season. Our recommendation is taking Bryant in rounds 3 or 4 as a WR1, Tony Romo will be looking his way more this season than ever before.
