Expert Note
View More Notes

Bryant keeps marching on through his slate of tough cornerback matchups, as he'll draw the Cardinals and Patrick Peterson in Week 3. It's fair to say that Bryant has exceeded expectations in light of the matchups he's faced, as he found the end zone and had seven catches last week against Aqib Talib. Prescott is not shying away from Bryant's matchup, as he's targeted him a whopping 25 times in two games. Regardless of the opposing cornerback, that level of volume should provide a fairly safe floor for Bryant. While he again may fall outside of the WR1 range, he's no worse than a rock-solid WR2.
