For an NFL wide receiver, your hands are your money makers. No hands means no catches, which means no pay days. The mercurial Bryant definitely earned his Jerry Jones money at the end of the 2012 season. Against the Bengals, he broke his left index finger. Normally, that kind of injury would sideline a wide receiver for a few weeks, but Bryant isn't your normal wide-out. A week later, he caught a touchdown in a win against the Steelers, and the week after that, he burned the Saints for nine catches, 224 yards, and two scores. Fantasy owners everywhere rejoiced the Legend of Dez.
