This week Dez Bryant says he can do the things that Calvin Johnson can do. We find out as the Top 2 receivers in the league face off today.

This is the week that a lot of fantasy owners have been dreading as six teams are on bye this week and among those teams, there are a lot of fantasy studs.  Chicago, Tennessee, Baltimore, San Diego, Indianapolis, and Houston are all off this week.  You may need to go a little deeper on your roster to fill it, but by now you know whether or not you are a contender or a pretender.  Also, because of that there are fewer options so the rankings will not be as much either since there are some players not worth starting at all.
