Dez Bryant remains elite fantasy option after second preseason game

Ed Szczepanski-USA TODAY Sports

Aside from a costly fumble, Dez Bryant was his usual self on Saturday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant had another solid preseason performance on Saturday, recording four catches for 74 yards in a brief appearance against the Arizona Cardinals. Like most of the first team, Bryant played the whole first quarter and part of the second.

Perhaps the highlight of the day was a circus sideline catch with Patrick Peterson draped all over him. The only real blemish was a lost fumble in the second quarter, when he got stripped from behind by Jerraud Powers.

Fantasy impact: The fumble should be a non-issue. Bryant once again looked like the most dominant player on the field, showing real chemistry with Tony Romo and beating defenders with both incredible athleticism and sharp route-running.

Bryant's late season surge last year doesn't look like a fluke--his fantasy ceiling is huge. He currently sits at No.3 on SB Nation's WR rankings.
