Dez Bryant breaks 100 yards in Week 8: Fantasy Implications

Tom Pennington

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant breaks 100 yards in NFC East match-up. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys wide out Dez Bryant had an up-and-down showing in Week 8 versus the New York Giants. The Cowboys receiver was competitive and made some nice grabs, but could have turned in a better day than he did. While it looked good statistically, his performance left something to be desired.

Bryant finished with 5 receptions for 110 yards. However, he was held out of the end zone, like much of the Cowboys pass-catchers on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis: Bryant's fantasy stock has been shaky, and back and forth, but at the end of the day, he has monster potential. it's no secret that fantasy owners wanted to get their hands on Bryant this season because of his ceiling. However, as the Cowboys struggle, as does Dez Bryant.

He has not been the most consistent player, but he remains a must-start in fantasy leagues. If the Cowboys are going to find themselves in these shootouts, behind late in games, then Bryant is likely to prosper. Keep him in your starting lineup going forward.
