Dez Bryant WR DAL 5 Days
Bryant had five catches for 73 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 42-7 win over the Colts.
The Cowboys jumped all over the Colts in the first half and needed to pass the ball just 21 times. Had the game been closer, Bryant probably would have been even more effective, but this is still a pretty good line against a Colts secondary that was playing quite well before getting torn apart Sunday. Dallas could still technically earn a first-round bye if a few games break their way, so the Cowboys might be all hands on deck against Washington, which would be good news for Bryant owners who are still playing in Week 17.

Bryant caught 6-of-7 targets for 114 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 38-27 win over the Eagles.
Jason Witten actually had a team-high nine targets, but it was unsurprisingly Bryant who did most of the Cowboys' damage through the air. Bryant repeatedly burnt Eagles cornerback Bradley Fletcher, and Tony Romo delivered accurate throws. The touchdowns came from four, 26 and 25 yards out, with Bryant catching each ball in the right side of the end zone. While he'll probably see a lot of Colts cornerback Vontae Davis in Week 16, Bryant is a strong candidate to explode in nearly any matchup. He has at least 73 receiving yards in each of his last five games, with seven touchdowns over that stretch.

Bryant caught 6-of-8 targets for 82 yards in Thursday's 41-28 win over the Bears.
Tony Romo only attempted 26 passes, with 10 of those thrown in DeMarco Murray's direction. Bryant dominated the wideout targets, but Cole Beasley managed three catches for 42 yards and two touchdowns on just three targets of his own. Bryant did draw one target inside the 10-yard line, and there was another play on which Romo was clearly looking in Bryant's direction, but then threw a touchdown to his second or third read, Gavin Escobar. The Cowboys' Week 15 matchup is with a Philadelphia team that has been friendly to opposing wideouts this season, but Bryant posted a modest 4-73-0 receiving line on seven targets against the Eagles on Thanksgiving.

Bryant caught four passes for 73 yards in Thursday's loss to the Eagles.
The Eagles allowed Bryant to catch a few passes, but they did a good job containing him, holding him out of the end zone after he found paydirt six times in his previous four games. Bryant will look to get back on track in Week 14 against a beatable Bears pass defense.

Bryant caught 7-of-9 targets for 86 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 31-28 win over the Giants
Bryant made up for a slow first half by scoring a pair of go-ahead touchdowns in the second half, with the last one holding up as the game-winner. He was the only Cowboy to record more than six targets, as the team ran just 53 offensive plays, of which 24 were DeMarco Murray carries. While the excellent Dallas running game has contributed to a few mediocre days from Bryant, the star wideout is still on pace for numbers that would closely match what he did last season. He's found the end zone in eight of 11 games, with sis of his 10 touchdowns coming over the last four contests.

Bryant had six catches on eight targets for a season-high 158 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Jaguars in London.
Amazingly, all of Bryant's production came in the second quarter, including touchdowns of 35 and 68-yards. He did need an IV in the third quarter due to dehydration, but he didn't appear overly worried about it after the game. Bryant, despite time with Brandon Weeden under center in Tony Romo's (back) absence, has now scored four touchdowns in his last three games. Unfortunately, fantasy owners are going to have to wait to see if he can extend his streak, as the Cowboys are off in Week 11 before facing the Giants in Week 12.

Bryant had two catches on 10 targets for 15 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Cardinals.
With starting quarterback Tony Romo out with a back injury, backup Brandon Weeden got the start and really struggled to connect with the star wideout, who was seen yelling at the quarterback on the sideline at one point during the game. Thankfully for fantasy owners, Bryant picked up a garbage-time three-yard touchdown with 1:08 left in the game to bring the Cowboys to within 11. There is a small possibility that Romo returns in Week 10 against the Jaguars in London, which would clearly be a boost to Bryant's fantasy value.

Bryant caught 3-of-7 targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 20-17 overtime loss to the Redskins.
Bryant had a surprisingly quiet game outside of the five-yard touchdown, which was one of the more impressive short scoring plays you'll see. He broke through two potential tacklers after catching a screen pass in the second quarter, fighting his way to the goal line with an outstretched arm to salvage an otherwise unimpressive night. The Cowboys attempted a modest 34 passes, with Jason Witten getting eight targets and Terrance Williams adding seven. The team's run-heavy approach is unlikely to change, but with 77 targets through eight games, Bryant is still getting plenty of opportunities, unlike Witten and Williams.

Bryant (shoulder) is listed as active for Monday's game against Washington.
Feel free to roll with Bryant as you normally would, on the heels of his nine-catch, 151-yard effort against the Giants in Week 7.

Bryant (shoulder) is probable for Monday's game against Washington.
Although Bryant remains on the injury report, the shoulder issue hasn't limited him in practice at all since Week 4, so there's no reason to think he'll be inhibited in any significant way Monday. The 25-year-old currently ranks ninth in the NFL in receiving yards with 590, following a nine-catch, 151-yard effort against the Cowboys last Sunday.
