Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is just, well, it's hard to describe. He beat cornerback Morris Claiborne on four plays in the one-on-one passing drill. In the team period, Bryant caught a back-shoulder fade from Tony Romo against Brandon Carr. The pass hit Bryant in the cuff of the arm. It seemed as if Bryant saw the ball at the last minute and it just stuck to his body. Bryant and QB Tony Romo have incredible chemistry right now.
Wide receiver Miles Austin continues to struggle. He allowed Sean Lee to knock a pass out of his hands, the second consecutive day that's happened. Austin is running hard but is struggling a little bit when it comes to contested catches. Allen knocked a pass out of Austin's hands in Monday's session.
The biggest concern with Bryant is what off-the-field trouble he might get into, but he seems to be maturing to a point where that's not much of an issue any longer. His production after the Cowboys' Week 5 bye (5.9-93-1.0) was better than Calvin Johnson's season averages. He averaged 6.3 catches for 110 yards and 1.13 TDs in his last eight games. That projects to 101-1760-18 (or 284 fantasy points) over the course of a 16-game season. Since 2001, only Randy Moss (2003, 2007) and Calvin Johnson (2011) scored more than 260 FP in a season, so Bryant finished on a torrid pace.
