Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is your player at the half after a five reception, 145 yard, two touchdown first half performance against the New Orleans Saints, and incredibly both of his scores came on 58-yard catches. Here’s to hoping you started him for the most important fantasy day of the year. (UPDATE: Bryant finished with 224 yards…umm, wow).
Bryant is playing with a finger injury for a second consecutive week, after many feared he would be out for the season. Last week against the Bengals, Bryant caught four balls for 59 yards and a touchdown.
By the way, Tony Romo on the day is 9-12 for 176 yards and the two touchdowns against a Saints defense that allows 287.0 passing yards per game.
Honourable first half mentions go to:
Bills RB C.J. Spiller: 11 carries, 100 yards
Saints QB Drew Brees: 20-27, 254 yards, TD and
Steelers WR Antonio Brown: 4 receptions, 83 yards, TD
