It didn't take long for Dak Prescott and Dez Bryant to find a rhythm in Saturday night's 24-19 preseason win over the Indianapolis Colts.
Prescott targeted the Pro Bowl receiver on his first pass play. First and 10 from Dallas' own five, Prescott found Bryant for an eight-yard strike that was quickly turned into 23 yards after breaking a tackle.
"He has been healthy all offseason, so that chemistry has grown," Prescott said. "He's been a guy that his ears are wide open, wanting to know what I'm thinking, and I want to know what he's thinking. It's just been back and forth of just talking and doing it out there on the field and it's only growing."
Prescott added, "it's the best Dez has been." He also thought Bryant has been the most improved player so far this season. This obviously could be very key this season for both players and fantasy owners, especially with RB Ezekiel Elliott out because of a suspension.

Week 3 at Arizona Cardinals
Dez Bryant was targeted 16 times last week which usually is a reason to celebrate if you are his fantasy owner. But those targets were more of result of the fact Dallas was throwing the ball all over the field trying to erase a a big deficit. His numbers have been average through two games with only 9 catches for 102 yards.
Bryant won't see as many targets this week, but he could have some better numbers against an Arizona defense ranked 30th in aFPA to wide receivers. He still remains the Cowboys' No. 1 wide receiver in the offense, but not the No. 1 pass-catcher, as Jason Witten has had better results. Bryant is definitely a starter for Week 3 but he only rates a high-end WR2.
