Wide Receivers – After suffering from various injuries the prior two seasons, the Texans’ Andre Johnson returned to form last year. He recorded 112 receptions for 1,598 yards and four touchdowns. The Cowboys Dez Bryant also had a stellar statistical season in 2012. He recorded 92 catches for 1,382 yards and 12 touchdowns. Both players are high-level athletes, but Bryant has the slight edge over Johnson now due to his youth and upside. One is going into his 11th season, while the other is only in his fourth.

Regardless, Dallas outshines Houston in depth. The Texans’ roster currently includes seven rookie wideouts and no one opposite of Johnson of any real repute outside of their first round draft pick from this year, Clemson’s DeAndre Hopkins. The Cowboys have veteran Miles Austin, the emerging Dwayne Harris, Cole Beasley and rookie Terrance Williams out of Baylor. On depth alone: Advantage Dallas.
