Dez Bryant notches only 72 yards, but manages 2 scores for fantasy owners

The Cowboys wide receiver only had six targets Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant managed a pair of touchdowns Sunday. He scored touchdowns in each half, but it wasn't enough as the Cowboys fell 31-30 to the Detroit Lions.

Bryant caught a five-yard touchdown pass with 46 seconds left in the first half to put the Cowboys ahead 10-7, then caught a 50-yard score in the fourth quarter that put Dallas ahead 27-17.

Meanwhile, rookie wide receiver Terrance Williams caught only two passes, but one was a 60-yard score in the fourth quarter, making this his fourth straight game with a touchdown since taking over as the team's No. 2 receiver for Miles Austin.

Fantasy impact: The game brings Bryant's total to eight touchdowns on the season through eight games, putting him on pace for 16 for the season. His 641 receiving yards set him up for almost 1,300 over the course of the season.

Bryant blew up at his teammates on the sidelines multiple times late in Sunday's game, but it's hard to imagine that affecting his fantasy value going forward. Bryant is still the second- or third-best wide receiver in fantasy. Williams, meanwhile, has pretty well established himself as a fine No. 2 or 3 fantasy option.
