Dez Bryant finds the end zone for fantasy owners in 4th straight game

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Cowboys' No. 1 receiver was blanketed for much of the game by the Redskins, but found a way to cash in. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant did not pull in several targets, but produced versus the Washington Redskins despite that.

Bryant was guarded tightly by DeAngelo Hall for most of the game, but capitalized on screens and racked up yards after the catch. Bryant also reeled in a 14-yard touchdown on a play that was extended by Tony Romo escaping from the pocket, for his only score of the game. The Cowboys' No. 1 wide receiver finished with four catches for 73 yards and the score on 11 targets.

Fantasy Spin: In a game where the Cowboys only ran 52 plays on offense and remained committed to running the football, Bryant's fantasy owners are fortunate that their stud receiver logged a double-digit game. His 14-yard score marked the fourth time in as many games that Bryant found the end zone, moving his impressive season total to 12. With 85 catches for over 1,100 yards and a dozen scores, it won't be surprising if Bryant's owners are in late-season contention.
