    Why Dez Bryant is About to Have His Best Season Ever

    Recently, has been falling down or even out of the “Top NFL ” discussions among many football heads. I’m here to tell you to expect a monster season from 88. It took some time to get on the same page with Dez last season, but towards the end of the year you could tell they had improved their chemistry.

    Why Dez Bryant is About to Have His Best Season Ever 1

    Now, they have a full to work together as starters.

    You’ve heard people say that Dak could have a worse season because Dallas will be opening up their playbook and expecting more of him. Some say that Dak Prescott will have more interceptions because he will take more chances. Well, “chances” with Dez Bryant are more like sure things (unless the referees get involved).

    Fifty-fifty balls thrown to Dez are more like 80-20 balls; Dez has shown he can corral almost anything. If Dak is going to take more chances and has better rapport with Dez, we can expect an uptick in targets.

    This Dallas looks to have more weapons than it has in years.

    We aren’t sure yet if or will have much of an impact, but if one or both can bring an added dimension to an already potent offense, look out NFL. Toss in Ezekiel Elliott looking to improve on his rookie season and be more involved in the passing game and this offense could be downright unstoppable.

    Good luck focusing on Dez Bryant, defenses.

    Of course, you can’t reflect on Dallas’ great offense without crediting the .

    With La’el Collins getting work at right tackle, this line has a chance to be even more athletic and dominant. It’ll be hard to match what they have done previously, but the talent is certainly present. The hope is that Frank Pollack & Co. minimize the loss of .

    One thing that could derail all of this is Dez Bryant’s health. He’s missed a few games the past two season, but he looks to be healthy heading into this one. Let’s cross our fingers and hope he stays that way.

    Lastly, the has a chance to be better.

    Dallas obviously targeted defense in this draft and ended up with a few players who have a chance to be play-makers. It may take them time to come along, but if this unit can increase takeaways and force more punts, that only increases Dez Bryant’s opportunities.

    But why is this season going to be his best? How can Bryant top 2014?

    Let’s look at his 2014 stats, compared to his last seven games of 2016 spread out across a full season:

    As you see those are very similar. Assuming things go well in Dallas, this wouldn’t surprise me in the least; personally I think he could top both of those stat lines if everything falls right.

    Still, you may be asking yourself why 2017 will definitely be the better year.

    The answer? Because if things break right, this will be the deepest post-season run of Bryant’s career. Dallas has aspirations and if they get close this will be Dez’s best year ever.

    Truth lol I’m expecting Dez to have 90+ catches, 1200-1400 yards and 12-20 td’s

    Willie Rogers

    Me too.

    Christopher Watjen

    20 TDs might be little much to expect giving that 16 TDs is the franchise record, buy hey, here’s hoping he gets there!

    TreFKennedy88

    You’re right but 20 are within reason, I wouldn’t be shocked if Dez got 20 td’s but that’s the beauty of the season we’ll find out in 4 months

    Travis Diggs

    Maybe but……. Didn’t cole Beasley lead last year in receptions?? He’s dak’s favorite target. I hope dez gets back to old dez numbers but this offense has alot of weapons already with some new toys still in the box.

    Christopher Watjen

    Yes, Cole was the leader in receptions. Dez missed a few games and it took Dak & Dez a little while to get on the same page. But now they have a chance to be on the same page all year, could be a big season. Go Cowboys!
