Dez Bryant hauled in 5-of-8 targets for 52 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 5 loss to the Packers.
It was another disappointing outing for Bryant in what looked like a great spot. Bryant did score his third touchdown of the year on a great throw from Dak Prescott in the second quarter, but he was almost nonexistent in the second half and could not come down with an end-zone target late in the game. Still, Bryant's touchdown upside will keep him in the WR1 mix against the 49ers after the bye. Oct 8 - 8:46 PM

Dez Bryant caught 5-of-13 targets for 98 yards in the Cowboys' Week 4 loss to the Rams.

The Cowboys came out trying to attack Dez's matchup with Trumaine Johnson. Beyond a 36-yard gain on the first play of the game, Johnson mostly won the battle. Bryant had a quiet second half after gaining 63 yards in the first two quarters. Dez will be a blowup candidate when Dallas hosts Green Bay in Week 5.
Oct 1 - 5:19 PM

Dez Bryant caught both of his targets for 12 yards and one touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 3 win over the Cardinals on Monday night.

Dak Prescott threw the ball just 18 times and only six times before halftime, as the Cowboys barely possessed the ball in the first half. Bryant made the most of his targets, however, turning the second one into a bully-ball 15-yard touchdown where he ran through Antoine Bethea and Tyrann Mathieu plus a couple other defenders on his way to the goal line. Bryant had a tough Weeks 1-3 schedule but came out of it with two touchdowns. Things will start to soften up a bit starting in Week 4 with a home date against the Rams.

Dez Bryant hauled in 7-of-15 targets for 59 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 2 loss to the Broncos.

Continuing his theme of struggling against top-tier cornerbacks with Dak Prescott under center, Bryant was inefficient. His touchdown came against the Aqib Talib on a back-shoulder throw, but he struggled otherwise. The good news through two weeks is Bryant's 24 targets. Prescott isn't going away from him. The bad news is, another elite corner in Patrick Peterson is on tap for Week 3. Bryant will be a low-end WR2 for that one.
Sep 17 - 8:55 PM

Dez Bryant caught 2-of-9 targets for 43 yards in Week 1 against the Giants.

Bryant was held in check before a 35-yard catch late in the third quarter. He wasn't needed in a game the Cowboys led throughout. Bryant has a shy-away matchup with Denver in Week 2.
Sep 11 - 12:17 AM

Dez Bryant missed his lone target in the Cowboys' third preseason game.

The Cowboys smartly kept Dez out of harm's way on Saturday night. They will have to lean on Bryant more this season with Ezekiel Elliott ineligible to play before Week 8. Bryant does start the season in rough matchup fashion, facing Janoris Jenkins in Week 1, the Broncos' secondary in Week 2, and Patrick Peterson in Week 3.

Dak Prescott said his "chemistry" with Dez Bryant "has grown" this offseason.

"He's been a guy that his ears are wide open, wanting to know what I'm thinking," Prescott said. "It's just been back and forth of just talking and doing it out there on the field and it's only growing." The connection was on display in the second preseason game, with Dez hauling in two passes for 55 yards and an impressive touchdown. A yearly threat for double-digit scores, Dez is a back-end WR1.

Dez Bryant caught both of his targets for 55 yards and a touchdown in Saturday’s preseason game.

Bryant caught a 23-yard pass on the first play of the game in which he threw down a defender after the reception. He then caught a 32-yard touchdown reception over Vontae Davis on a deep back shoulder target that was vintage Bryant. Bryant caught 10 touchdowns over his final 11 full games a year ago including the postseason. Even with a tough opening schedule over the opening three weeks of the regular season, Bryant remains a low-end WR1 for the season since he carries so much touchdown upside.

Dez Bryant missed the Cowboys' conditioning test on Friday.

Bryant showed up to training camp three hours late. He's reportedly dealing with a sinus infection and headaches, but is otherwise healthy. This should be a non-issue moving forward.
Jul 21 - 5:30 PM

Dez Bryant feels 100 percent healthy at OTAs after battling foot, ankle, back, and knee injuries the past two seasons.

Bryant is enjoying a drama-free offseason after missing all of the 2015 spring due to a franchise-tag holdout, then undergoing multiple lower-leg surgeries early in 2016. "There have been times where I [am] seriously injured but I still go," Bryant explained. "The way that I feel now, I'm not dealing with really anything. I feel damn good. I know once I'm 100 percent, I'm hard to deal with." Bryant averaged 80.7 yards and one touchdown per game over the final eight weeks last year.
May 31 - 9:35 PM

Dez Bryant nabbed nine-of-12 targets for a season-high 132 yards and two touchdowns Sunday in the Cowboys' Divisional Round loss to the Packers.

The Cowboys couldn’t fend off Green Bay in the most dramatic game we’ve seen in ages, but Bryant did everything that was asked of him and then some on Sunday. Dallas looked lethargic out of the gate but Bryant changed the momentum quickly by dusting Ladarius Gunter for a 40-yard touchdown late in the first half. Bryant wasn’t done victimizing Gunter, beating him again for a seven-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Dez got off to a relatively slow start this year while battling injuries but finished strong with seven touchdowns over his last eight games. The 28-year-old has re-established himself as an elite WR1 in fantasy.
Jan 15 - 8:54 PM

Dez Bryant was held without a catch on one target Week 17 against the Eagles.

Bryant played more than Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott, but he did not see much if any action in the second half. Bryant was able to draw a long defensive pass interference to set up Tony Romo's touchdown, but that was his only contribution of the game. He will be much more involved when the Cowboys open their playoffs in the Divisional Round.
Jan 1 - 3:37 PM

Dez Bryant caught 4-of-5 targets for 70 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 16 win over the Lions on Monday night.

He also threw a 10-yard touchdown to Jason Witten, the first touchdown pass of Bryant's career. On the play, Dak Prescott flipped it to Bryant, who looked like he was going to run it on a reverse, but the lefty threw it to a wide-open Witten in the end zone. Bryant's two touchdown catches were also beauties. The first was a one-handed, 25-yard grab with CB Johnson Bademosi draped all over him. The second was a 19-yard hookup on a back-shoulder bullet in the fourth quarter. After the second touchdown, Bryant was done for the night with the Cowboys up by 21. Bryant may not play much more than a series or two in the meaningless Week 17 finale at the Eagles.

Dez Bryant (back) is active for Week 16 against the Lions.

He was listed questionable but was never in danger of sitting out. With Lions top CB Darius Slay (hamstring) out, Bryant is in a wonderful spot. Inactive for the Cowboys are QB Mark Sanchez, RB Alfred Morris, CB Morris Claiborne, LB Justin Durant, DE DeMarcus Lawrence, DT Cedric Thornton, and DT Tyrone Crawford. DE Randy Gregory is active for the first time this year.

Dez Bryant caught 8-of-10 passes for 82 yards in Week 15 against the Bucs.

The Cowboys made a point to get Bryant involved early, with five of his catches coming in the first half. He dropped his only end-zone target, but it was a nice rebound after he was held to one catch last week. Bryant didn't look limited despite coming into the game questionable with a back injury. He'll be a WR1 for Week 16 against Detroit.
