Fantasy Analysis
Week 12 Projections
Bryant is facing one of the few true shutdown corners left in the league in Josh Morgan. Bryant is still not 100% and his quarterback is still rounding into shape after missing the majority of the season. Look for Carolina to dial up the pressure on Romo, limiting pocket time, and for Norman to be Dez's shadow for 60 minutes. Dez is a tough bench call as you have to go with your top dogs no matter the competition but the outlook appears limited.
Receiving: 5 Receptions, 65 Yards, 1 TD.

Season Projections
Imagine the numbers Bryant could put up if he ever led the league in targets? Dallas' commitment to running the ball allows Bryant to face favorable coverage, which more times than not, he will exploit. DeMarco Murray may have left via free agency, but the formula will remain the same in 2015 as Dallas will continue to pound the ball on the ground while looking Dez's way near the goal line or when a big play is needed. We've yet to see the best that Bryant has to offer, so draft with confidence, as he has a great chance to repeat as the NFL's leader in touchdown receptions.

Receiving: 75 Receptions, 1050 Yards, 10 TD.

Dallas Cowboys Team Talk
Do the Cowboys deliberately draft the stupidest players?????
Really??? After having one teammate kill another while driving drunk you would think no one on this team would do ...
Can I punch Orlando Scandrick??
Seriously. I REALLY want to...in the face......
Cowboys website
Found this Cowboys website, many of you probably have already seen it, I like it, passing it on.  
Cowgirls deserve to lose
Ok, why on gods green earth would you take the ball out of your best players hands? Murray has been the focal point of your offfense getting at least 4 catches a game and running for about 100 yards, yet you put in fragile felix. WHY? HE ...

Draft Analysis
Round 4, Pick 6
What a step forward this kid took! He is ready for prime time, has a good QB, and should build on the 6 TDs in 12 games from his rookie year.
Romo at QB is both a blessing and a curse, as while he is the best option to be throwing him the ball, he also has great chemistry with Mile Austin.
Draft Strategy
If you take a QB early, you also need to target upside as opposed to consistency. I could have gone average RB, but if Bryant plays like a first rounder, whoever else I have at RB taken later will do just fine. Of course, if he slumps, that RB choice I did not make will look much better in hindsight! (Contributed by: Pat_Smith)

Round 4, Pick 5
Breakout-year potential, plays in a potent/pass-happy offense, showed flashes of WR1 performance
Not much chemistry built up with Romo, WR2 on the depth chart in Dallas with plenty of other options, Unproven over the course of a full season
Draft Strategy
It's a risky pick at 4.05. I like his upside more than I liked the upside of the WRs available (Boldin, S.Johnson, Colston). I'm not in love with this pick. (Contributed by: gregor7777)
