Cowboys | Dez Bryant tag could be temporary

Sat, 28 Feb 2015 19:05:35 -0800

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is expected to receive the franchise tag by Monday, March 2, but during the NFL Scouting Combine, team owner Jerry Jones said that he hoped the tag would serve as a "placeholder" while the two sides worked out a long-term deal.

Fantasy Tip: The bottom line for fantasy owners is that Bryant is going to be back with the Cowboys in 2015, and he should continue to be one of the best receivers in the league. He is a definite WR1 and possibly the best fantasy option at the position.

Cowboys | Cowboys intend to tag Dez Bryant

Sat, 28 Feb 2015 17:40:06 -0800

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant will receive the franchise tag by the deadline Monday, March 2, executive vice president Stephen Jones confirmed Saturday, Feb. 28. The move will guarantee Bryant roughly $13 million in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant has been one of the best receivers in the NFL over the past three years, piling up 41 touchdowns and topping 1,200 receiving yards in each season. He should remain the focal point of the Dallas passing attack in 2015 and is a strong WR1 in all formats.

Cowboys | Dallas afraid to pay Dez Bryant

Thu, 26 Feb 2015 05:53:41 -0800

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is likely to receive the franchise tag because the team is hesitant to sign him long term due to a lack of trust off the field. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport discovered via an open-records request that Bryant was involved in an "unknown disturbance" in a Walmart parking lot July 11, 2011. Upon further investigation, "it was determined that there was no offense" and "all parties were advised they were free to go." The team has known about this incident for a while. However, Bryant has had the police called to his home six different times since 2011. None of the calls resulted in any arrests.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant is clearly one of the top five receivers in football. These reports are concerning, but it's important to remember no arrests were made. He's still worth a late first-round pick in traditional drafts.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant's career in jeopardy?

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 19:30:19 -0800

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant's NFL career could be in jeopardy if a video he allegedly appears is as bad as it sounds. A source said the "incriminating video of Dallas Cowboys superstar receiver Dez Bryant is being released today or tomorrow, and is so bad it's "five times worse than the Ray Rice video and that his football career is in jeopardy." The Cowboys have claimed no such video exists.

Fantasy Tip: This is huge news for fantasy owners everywhere, if it turns out to be true, but more importantly it is huge news for the NFL. They simply cannot have another one of its stars embroiled in a nasty controversy, whatever the exact details may be. It sounds like we'll soon find out. It sounds as if the rumored video is what has been holding up negotiations with the impending free agent and the Cowboys. Remember, this is all speculation at this point.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant receives offer from Cowboys

Sat, 21 Feb 2015 11:39:07 -0800

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant has reportedly received an offer from the team, but the Cowboys have not heard back from Bryant's agent. If Bryant does not sign a long-term deal, he could very well be franchise tagged.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant a candidate for tag

Fri, 20 Feb 2015 16:25:34 -0800

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Dez Bryant remains a candidate for the franchise tag if the team can't work out a long-term extension with him. The Cowboys still have concerns about Bryant's off-the-field issues.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant will be returning to Dallas next year, it's just unknown if it'll be on a one-year franchise tag or a long-term commitment. Regardless, he's proven to be one of the most dominant wideouts in the game, and he should be ranked as the top wideout in PPR leagues.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant would be unhappy with tag

Tue, 17 Feb 2015 18:07:24 -0800

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant would get $13 million instead of $30-40 million guaranteed money if he is slapped with the franchise tag. According to sources, he would likely not participate in the team's offseason program if he is franchised.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant might be unhappy for a bit, but he will get over it and will be one of the top fantasy receivers in the game in 2015. Plus, if he is tagged he will be playing for an even bigger payday after the season, so expect the best.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant to get franchise tag?

Tue, 17 Feb 2015 11:13:39 -0800

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Dez Bryant could be franchise tagged, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones. "Right now all things being equal, it's leaning more [towards] Dez with the franchise [tag] than it is not," Jones said. "But that doesn't mean it will stay that way." Jones was also uncertain about having a meeting with Bryant's agent during the NFL Scouting Combine, another indication that Bryant could be getting the franchise tag.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to believe Bryant won't be in a Cowboys uniform next season. He's a perennial top-tier wide receiver in fantasy football, averaging 91 catches, 1,311 yards and 13.6 touchdowns over the past three years, including a career-high 16 touchdowns in 2014.

Cowboys | Dallas decision coming on Dez Bryant

Sun, 08 Feb 2015 17:09:03 -0800

The Dallas Cowboys will either re-sign impending WR Dez Bryant to a long-term deal with a hefty guarantee by March 2 or protect his rights by slapping him with the franchise tag. If he is tagged, the projection would be a one-year, $12.8 guaranteed salary. He and the team could then negotiation a long-term deal for the next several months.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain which avenue the Cowboys will take, but one thing is clear - Dez isn't going anywhere in 2015. He will once again be a high-impact fantasy option in 2015, among the Top 5 at his position.
