Bryant snagged five of eight targets for 52 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 35-31 loss to Green Bay.
Bryant helped Dallas mount an early lead early in the second quarter after grabbing a 10-yard touchdown to put the Cowboys up 21-6. Bryant looks to finally be clicking with Dak Prescott after he and the young quarterback struggled to get on the same page last season. He's nabbed at least five passes and scored a touchdown in three of five games this season. He's not quite perfect, however, and starting him still has some risk. He has four catches 55 yards in the two other games combined. Of course, Bryant's schedule has been tough this year, and those two came in matchups against the Giants' Janoris Jenkins and the Cardinals' Patrick Peterson, two well-known shutdown cornerbacks.
Bryant corralled five of 13 passes for 98 yards during Sunday's 35-30 loss to the Rams.
The rapport between Bryant and Dak Prescott has been less than ideal through four games. In three of those cases, the pair failed to hook up on better than 50 percent of the passes directed Bryant's way, resulting in a catch rate of just 40 percent (16 of 40) for the season. On a positive note, he averaged nearly 20 yards per reception Sunday on the back of a 36-yard grab and four more between 12 and 18 yards. In Week 5, Bryant will take on a Packers defense that has given up 14.2 YPC but just one touchdown to wide receivers in 2017.
Bryant caught both of his targets for 12 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 28-17 win over the Cardinals.
Bryant didn't make many plays while lining up across from Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson, but his 15-yard touchdown midway through the third quarter was arguably the best effort of the game. After running an underneath route, Bryant eluded Peterson and company before muscling his way through defenders on his final couple yards to the end zone. In doing so, Bryant not only scored for the second straight game, but also gave the Cowboys their first lead of the night. Following three straight tough matchups to kick off the campaign, Bryant is slated to face Trumaine Johnson and the Rams in Week 4.
Bryant caught seven of 16 targets for 59 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 42-17 loss to the Broncos.
Bryant struggled to create much separation against the talented Broncos secondary, but he was able to brush off Aqib Talib in the end zone for a touchdown in the second quarter. He was targeted on both of Dak Prescott's interceptions on the day, including one that Talib returned 103 yards for a touchdown near the end of the game. Although Bryant had his hands full, he still improved upon his Week 1 production across the board and drew his highest number of targets since the 2013 season. He will face another tough matchup against the Cardinals next week, but his usage is healthy and he continues to thrive in the red zone.
Bryant caught two passes for 43 yards on nine targets in Sunday's win over the Giants.
The nine targets tied Bryant for a team-high total Sunday night with Jason Witten. Bryant was on the receiving end of three consecutive looks in the end zone from Dak Prescott on a sequence from the three-yard line, but Giants corner Janoris Jenkins was sharp in coverage. Bryant struggled in matchups against Jenkins and the Giants in 2016 as well, as he's now caught just four of 23 targets for 61 yards in his last three meetings against them.
