Yum (in the default incarnation) requires that you press a "Y" for yes 
to proceed with the transaction.

It will do all the dependency calcs and present a list of things needed, 
but not install if you select NO.

Also, you can just use some of the yum switches to get a deplist ... like:

yum deplist <pkg_name>

or lastly, you can use reqoquery that is part of yum-utils (after 
installing the yum-utils package, do man repoquery).

SO .. there is no dry run for yum specifically, but depending on what 
you really want, there are several alternatives.
