Dez Bryant has quiet day for Cowboys, fantasy owners

Wesley Hitt

The Cowboys wide receiver couldn't get much going Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Coming off consecutive big games (110 yards to weeks ago, two scores last week), Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant had a middling game Sunday. He couldn't break free for much yardage, but it didn't matter, as the Cowboys beat the Minnesota Vikings 27-23.

Bryant caught six passes for 64 yards Sunday, his third-lowest total of the season, and only his fourth game in 2013 without a touchdown. Meanwhile, his running mate, fellow wide receiver Terrance Williams, saw his streak of four straight games with a touchdown reception end, catching only two of his seven targets for 33 yards Sunday.

Fantasy impact: Not much should change for either pass-catcher coming out of Sunday's game -- Bryant is still a top-three or four wide receiver, and even those guys have the occasional less-productive game.

Williams, meanwhile, had been a very productive WR3 since inheriting the starting job. Anyone who thought his touchdown streak was going to be a permanent part of his value was being delusional, but regardless, Williams is a very good WR3/flex play.
