Does Dez Bryant Have A Real Chance To Become The NFL’s First Wide Receiver To Reach 2,000 Yards?

I know I still have about five months or so until I have to do this for real. But, I’m ready to do it now. With my first pick in my 2013 NFL fantasy football draft, I select…Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant!

Now, I know what you’re thinking: Shouldn’t I wait until I see which pick I have to decide who I want to take? After all, it wouldn’t make much sense to draft Bryant first overall when there will be players like Houston Texans running back Arian Foster and Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson available. But, I don’t care. I’m taking Bryant. And, you know why? Because he’s already talking about how he’s going to rack up 2,000 receiving yards during the 2013-14 NFL season. Two thousand! No WR in NFL history has ever done that. Do you know how many fantasy points that will get me?!

“That’s still scratching the surface,” he said earlier this week, referring to the huge numbers he put up during the Cowboys’ last eight games last season. “It’s only going to get better, to be honest. I still have a lot to give. I feel like nobody’s seen anything. Nothing.”

Oh, I’m excited, Dez! Are you ready to be a part of my team and give me the benefits of those 2,000 yards?

“I feel like it can be a lot more than that,” he said. “That’s just being honest. I honestly feel like [2,000 yards and 20 touchdowns] can potentially happen.”

YES! That’s the spirit. But, wait: Can Bryant really put up numbers like that? The truth is that he probably could…but I doubt he will. I love his confidence. But, last season, Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson put up the most receiving yards ever put up by an NFL wide receiver when he amassed 1,964 yards, and the Lions basically threw to him on every other possession during the final few weeks to help him achieve that. So, how is Bryant going to do it?

The truth is that he probably won’t. The Cowboys have too many other weapons—and will likely have too many important games on their schedule—for them to key in on throwing to Bryant on every other possession in order to help him set a new NFL record. So, it’s likely not going to happen for him.

But, you know what? I’m drafting him anyway. Because, if he’s putting in the work it’ll take to catch enough balls to receive for more than 2,000 yards, something tells me he’s going to have a monster season even if he doesn’t set a new record. And, that’s good enough for me.
