Dez Bryant caught three passes for 68 yards and a touchdown as the Cowboys beat the Washington Redskins. It was the second week in a row that Bryant found the end zone, and the third week that he topped 50 receiving yards for Dallas.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant looks like he will be the man in the Dallas offense with Miles Austin on the shelf. Last week in a lopsided win over the Buffalo Bills, the second-year receiver caught six passes for 74 yards and a touchdown. The week before that, he had 76 receiving yards. Up to week 11, Bryant has 32 receptions for 517 yards and five touchdowns. He was averaging almost 65 yards per game coming into this week.
Fake Teams, SB Nation's fantasy sports site, ranked Bryant fifth on this week's receiver rankings, thanks to what looked like a very favorable matchup against the Washington Redskins. Bryant could be very helpful in fantasy league's down the stretch. After this week, Dallas plays Miami and Arizona ahead of a week 14 showdown with the Giants.
