2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Dec-13-2015 by Shawn Childs


Week 14 DFS Update (12/13): Bryant has one 100-yard receiving game and two TDs in seven games played. He is averaging only 8.1 targets per game with a poor catch rate (45.6). Last season Dez had only three catches for 38 yards on four targets against the Packers. Green Bay is 10th in the league in WR Fantasy defense, with only one bad game defending WRs (SD - 22/270/1). Bryant should draw CB Sam Shields in coverage. The lack of success in the running game and poor QB play really hurts his ability to be more involved in the game plan. Has the talent to surprise with a favorable price point.

Week 13 DFS Update (12/5): In the baseball world, Bryant is batting .166. He only has one game of value (5/104/1) in his six games played. Over his last four games he has 37 targets (9.3 per game), while catching only 43.2 percent of his chances. Last year he had seven catches, 129 yards and three TDs on 13 targets in two games against the Redskins. Washington allows the 5th-most Fantasy points to WRs (17 TDs). Redskins CBs have played reasonably well, but Bryant still has the clear edge in talent. With Cassel starting, Dez is really tough to trust. Elite talent who will be an against the grain play in Week 13.

UPDATE (11/20): Bryant has pretty much been a disaster for Fantasy owners this season. However, most, if not all, of that is due to injury and a nightmarish quarterback situation. He's played four games this season and only once was he even worth having in your lineup. He has 17 receptions for 209 yards and a TD. His one good game consisted of five catches, 104 yards and a TD. Aside from that his yardage totals in the three other games were 12, 45 and 48. He should bounce back with Romo returning.

The Cowboys placed their bet on Bryant over Murray as the face of the franchise going forward, which is a wise more. Bryant led the league with 16 receiving touchdowns. He amassed 88 catches in 136 targets for 1,320 yards. Dez has a three-year average of 91 catches, 1,311.66 yards and 13.6 scores. Although he topped the 100-yard mark only four times last season, he scored in 11 games. His consistency led to him notching at least 10 Fantasy points in every game after Week 1 and finishing as Fantasy's No. 4 WR. Dez is a great player with impact upside, but his opportunity is limited by the Cowboys' run-centric offense. His ceiling is 100-plus catches for more than 1,500 yards and 15 scores. His floor is 90-1,350-10. He is a rock-solid start to any Fantasy team.
