Dez Bryant absorbed three-of-five targets for 73 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Cowboysâ€™ Week 14 win over the Giants.
Bryant got off to a poor start with a pair of first-half drops but redeemed himself by going for a 50-yard touchdown late in the second quarter. He won his matchup with Brandon Dixon and found nothing but green grass in front of him. Dez was only targeted once after halftime as the Cowboys leaned heavily on Rod Smith and Alfred Morris down the stretch. Bryant has had concerningly few blow-up games this year but still leads the team with six touchdown receptions and gets a favorable matchup with Oakland in Week 15.

Dez Bryant caught 5-of-7 targets for 61 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 13 win over the Redskins.
The touchdown was Dez's first since Week 7. With Bryant demanding the ball, Dak Prescott gave him a chance to win a 1-on-1 against Bashaud Breeland in the end zone. Bryant obliged, skying for his 72nd career touchdown, giving him the Cowboys' receiving record for scores. Bryant still wasn't gaining a ton of separation, though he's now averaged over 12 yards per catch in back-to-back weeks, getting his YPC back above 11.0 for the season. The Giants' Janoris Jenkins-less defense is a plus matchup for Week 14.

Dez Bryant caught 3-of-5 targets for 37 yards in the Cowboys' Week 12 loss to the Chargers.
Bryant was held without a catch in the first half and was trailed by CB Casey Hayward much of the afternoon. Bryant has posted a couple duds in the three games since Ezekiel Elliott's suspension went into effect. He had a 3-39 day Week 10 at Atlanta and followed it up with an 8-63 last week. Bryant has underperformed greatly in 2017 and is more of a WR3 at this point in time. He gets a matchup with Josh Norman next Thursday night in Washington.
