Be ready to sweat Dez nuts

Dez Bryant came into the season with a shit ton of hype, but has amassed just 13 catches for 164 yards and no TDs through three games. There isn’t a lot of optimism surrounding his value thanks to Dallas’ depth of weapons and the balance they are showing with the run game, but don’t get it twisted, Dez is on the cusp of greatness. Savvy fantasy heads would be wise to send out offers for his services during this buy-low opportunity.
One of the most explosive big WRs in football, Bryant has stupidly been underused by the Cowboys up until this point. That shouldn’t continue. Bryant was shown on the sideline jawing at receivers coach Jimmy Robinson over a lack of chances to make plays. He then recorded 47 yards in the second half after that display (in the first half, he had just 15). Normally, people would consider this a total diva act by a crybaby WR whining about not getting the ball enough. Well, if those antics lead to more opportunities, then cry me a goddamn river.
Sure the Cowboys are 2-1, but they are in the tough NFC East and will need to play at a much higher level the rest of the season just to keep pace. DeMarco Murray needs to be involved, but in the passing game, Bryant will be the focus. Jason Witten ain’t what he used to be and Miles Austin is one tweaked hammy away from a set of crutches. Even if Austin stays healthy, Bryant is by far the best playmaker on this team and offensive guru Jason Garrett will find ways to get the ball in his hands.
This may be your last chance to get Bryant on a discount, so even if you have to backhand your own mother to get him, make it happen. Dez would be proud.
