Fantasy owners who were scared about Dez Bryant's injury concerns entering Sunday had to have enjoyed the Dallas Cowboys' wide receiver's first quarter. Bryant caught five receptions for 100 yards and a touchdown in the quarter. The Cowboys lead the Kansas City Chiefs 10-7 at halftime.
Bryant was hobbled coming out of the team's season-opening win against the New York Giants with a foot injury, but caught quarterback Tony Romo's first five completions in the game, including a 53-yard reception on the team's opening drive to set up a field goal, and a later catch for 53 yards that set up his two-yard touchdown.
Fantasy impact: The concerns over Bryant's foot evaporated quickly Sunday, as he caught a 53-yard pass on the team's second offensive play.
There was some question whether Miles Austin and Jason Witten would see higher value as a result of Bryant's injury. Both guys still have their normal value, but it looks like Bryant's injury isn't much of a concern going forward.
