Dez Bryant: Is One Drive Enough to Make Him a Fantasy Starter?
For those of you who decided to bench Dez Bryant because he was going against arguably the best corner tandem in the league, I imagine you must be kicking yourself about now.
Bryant torched the Jets on the Cowboys' first drive, with two catches for a combined 45 yards. On the first catch Bryant showed off his speed and open field skills, and the second catch that resulted on the touchdown showed off his strength and great hands.
Bryant definitely has a lot of value in Dallas' offense, with Miles Austin usually taking the best corner and teams also having to respect Jason Witten.
Of course a lot of Bryant's future value will depend on the health of Tony Romo, and if he goes down with another injury Bryant's value will immediately diminish.
Also, as is happening in the Jets game now, if Bryant makes a few plays early teams may put their best corner on him. I wouldn't be too worried about this though, as Bryant has shown he can make catches on both Antonio Cromartie and Derrelle Revis.
The Cowboys are going to be passing the ball a lot this season, and Bryant is going to get plenty of looks. As he has shown early on in this Jets, he is capable of not only catching the ball, but running with it as well.
Bryant is only in his second year, so if you are playing in a keeper league his value is through the roof. Of course his value is peaking in the middle of the game, so if you are not sold on him as a serious fantasy player now is your chance to unload him for good value.
