Dez Bryant

Wide Receiver • Cowboys

2018 Projections

107 63 826 6


Bryant was one of the best receivers in the league from 2012 to 2014. He had no fewer than 88 catches, 1,233 yards and 12 TDs in any of those seasons and finished in the top six in WR fantasy scoring each of those years. Bryant wonít turn 30 until November, so a return to something close to his past levels of production isnít out of the question.


Last season may have been Bryantís worst since his rookie year. He averaged 52.4 yards per game and a career-low 12.1 yards per catch. Bryant has dealt with foot, ankle, back and knee injuries in recent years and might be an elevated injury risk now that heís about to enter his 30s. Bryant will have to fit into an unfamiliar offense and get used to working with a new quarterback.

Bottom Line

Once among the top receivers in the game, Bryantís career trajectory has been trending downward since 2015. Heís not too old to reverse the slide, but itís now best to approach him with caution in fantasy drafts.
