WR Dez Bryant Will Help The Dallas Cowboys Offense
I was very curious to see exactly where ultra talented receiver Dez Bryant would end up at this years’ draft. Because of his questionable issues, Bryant did fall out of the top twenty selection at this years’ draft.
The Cowboys finally stepped up and ended Bryant’s free fall in the later part of the first round as owner Jerry Jones was willing to gamble on Bryant’s talent.
While I heard some say Bryant would be a bust with the Cowboys I don’t believe he will be. Sure, he may not start right away but most rookie receivers don’t start. At the same time, I wouldn’t be surprised if he does unseat Roy Williams as the No.2 receiver, because Williams isn’t a very good player.
Williams does have talent but over the past two or three years it seems to me that he doesn’t think he needs to work hard in order to justify his contract.
As for Bryant, he has a chance to come onto a winning team with a very good quarterback. So many times a player like Bryant ends up on a very bad team and is asked to carry the franchise until they can find better players around him.
This is the same environment Randy Moss came to when he fell in the first round and the Minnesota Vikings selected him. Don’t expect Bryant to play like Moss, as few players are as gifted as Moss and no one has ever had the deep threat he’s had in his career.
2010 Fantasy Projection For Dez Bryant
Bryant won’t be worth having on your fantasy team until he proves he can at least start pushing Williams for the starting job. Fortunately, we will know how close he is to accomplishing that before the season begins.
If Bryant can win a starting job at some point this season, he is worth a look into starting as a third receiver in twelve team leagues.
Beyond 2010, the sky is the limit and Bryant should be a clear starter next year as the team will dump Williams in the offseason.
