Date:

Dez Bryant caught 6-of-8 passes for 82 yards in Dallas' Week 14 win over the Bears.

Bryant appeared to be on his way toward a massive night after catching three passes on Dallas' opening drive, but was targeted just five times thereafter as the Cowboys ran it down Chicago's throat. When the Cowboys weren't running, they were throwing to Cole Beasley as the Bears blanketed Bryant. Bryant has now been held out of the end zone in back-to-back games, but will be a strong bet to find pay-dirt in next week's rematch with Cary Williams and the Eagles.
Dec 4 - 11:53 PM

Dez Bryant caught four passes for 73 yards in Thursday's Week 13 loss to the Eagles.

Bryant was held out of the end-zone for the first time in four weeks. He made a contested 38-yard catch over Bradley Fletcher in the first quarter, but was otherwise held in check. Bryant is on pace for an 89/1,269/13 line through 12 games. He'll be a high-end WR1 for next week's matchup with the Bears.
Nov 27 - 8:42 PM

Dez Bryant caught seven passes for 86 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 12 win over the Giants.

The Giants held Bryant in check in the first half, shadowing him with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie for most of the game. He was left wide open on a 31-yard catch and run for his first score, and caught the game-winning touchdown with just over a minute in the fourth quarter. Bryant is now up to a 63/879/10 line this season. He'll be a top-three option against the Eagles secondary on Thursday.

The Giants don't plan to use Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie in shadow coverage on Dez Bryant.

DRC has been unable to play every defensive snap in recent weeks because of an IT band injury that is affecting his back, leg, and hamstring. Giants DC Perry Fewell mentions CB Chykie Brown, who was plucked off waivers from the Ravens, as a candidate to see extended snaps vs. Bryant on Sunday night. Dez has a touchdown and/or 100-plus yards in eight of his last nine games.

Speaking Tuesday, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he hopes to have walk-year WR Dez Bryant finish his career in Dallas.

Jones confirmed the sides have had "serious" contract talks. Jones' son, Stephen, says the Cowboys have made some "really nice" offers, and are confident the sides will come to an accord. For his part, Bryant has said he'd be "highly disappointed" to be franchise tagged. DeMarcus Ware notwithstanding, Jerry rarely lets homegrown talent get away. Bryant should remain with Big D for 2015 and beyond.
Nov 11 - 10:16 PM

Dez Bryant caught 6-of-8 targets for 158 yards and two touchdowns in the Cowboys' Week 10 win over the Jaguars.

Dez did all of his damage in the second quarter. He rumbled through several Jaguars defenders on a 35-yard catch-and-run in the second, and shrugged off a tackle from Dwayne Gratz on his way to a 68-yard score to close out the first half. After an infuriating day with Brandon Weeden under center, Bryant was right back to his dominant self in Week 10. He will be a high-end WR1 when the Cowboys come out of their bye Week 12.
Nov 9 - 4:19 PM

Contract-year WR Dez Bryant said he'd be "highly disappointed" if the Cowboys slap him with the franchise tag this offseason.

Bryant recently fired agent Eugene Parker and hired Jay Z's Roc Nation. He's subsequently changed his stance on negotiations and is willing to work something out during the season. Bryant, who turns just 26 years old Tuesday and has been a model citizen off the field of late, is seeking a deal that will pay him around $13 million per year. A long-term deal should get done as the franchise tag would badly eat into an already mangled Cowboys salary cap situation.

Dez Bryant caught 2-of-10 targets for 15 yards and a touchdown in Dallas' Week 9 loss to the Cardinals.

Both of Bryant's catches came in the game's final 1:55, when the result was no longer in doubt. Bryant whipped CB Patrick Peterson in the end zone for his score. Brandon Weeden was the culprit for Bryant's dreadful day, though Bryant also drew two penalties on Cardinals DBs. Bryant's lone mistake was a third-down drop. Weeden was completely ineffective this afternoon, so it will be a concern for Bryant's Week 10 status if Tony Romo (back) isn't ready to return in London.
Nov 2 - 4:39 PM

Dez Bryant caught three passes for 30 yards and one touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 8 overtime loss to the Redskins.

Bryant was targeted seven times on the night. It took him a bit to get on the board in this one, but he easily beat OLB Everette Brown for a 20-yard gain on a crossing route in the second quarter before finishing off the same drive with a grown-man five-yard touchdown. Bryant fought through two tackle attempts, stretching his arm over the goal line for the score. At the season's midway point, Bryant is on pace for a 96-1,240-10 line. The 96 grabs would be a career-high, while we can expect Bryant to flirt, or even pass, the yards and touchdowns. The elite WR1 gets the burnable Cardinals next.

Dez Bryant caught nine passes for 151 yards in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Giants.

In an effort to contain DeMarco Murray, the Giants left Prince Amukamara in 1-on-1 shadow coverage for much of the game. Amukamara actually stuck on Bryant's hip for the most part, but Dez was just too fast, too strong and too good for him. Bryant was also unlucky to have a touchdown called back when replays showed his knee was down with the ball inside the 1-yard line. A true physical freak at the peak of his powers, we're scared of what he's going to do the Redskins' awful secondary on Monday Night Football in Week 8.
