Cowboys | Dez Bryant's agent meets with 'Boys

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 13:25:22 -0700

The agent for Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant met face-to-face with the team for the first time in nearly four months, per sources. Bryant hasn't yet signed his $12.823 million franchise tender, and he has a deadline of July 15 to agree to a long-term deal. After that date Bryant will need to play out the season under the tender and the two sides could discuss an extension after the season.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant's side has threatened to miss games in 2015, but the Cowboys don't believe it, as it would cost Bryant $754,000 per week. Owner Jerry Jones fully expects Bryant to be in the lineup for Week 1 against the New York Giants, and fantasy owners should be drafting as though that will be the case.

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 11:41:36 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant was present for a Sunday Night Football photo shoot for Week 1 Tuesday, June 23.

Fantasy Tip: There is buzz that Bryant could extend his holdout into Week 1, and this is a good sign that he'll be ready to go for the year. Bryant will likely slot in somewhere in the back half of the first round of fantasy drafts.

Cowboys | Owner expects Dez Bryant to play Week 1

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 15:07:51 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is expected to play Week 1 with or without a long-term contract, according to owner Jerry Jones. Jones said he knows how competitive Bryant is and how much he wants to support his teammates. Jones even believes Bryant will be with the team for training camp in late July. Bryant has until July 15 to sign a long-term deal.

Fantasy Tip: Perhaps this is a subtle message from Jones to Bryant. Bryant won't be required to show up for training camp if he still hasn't signed his franchise tender once it starts. Stay tuned to this situation leading up to the deadline and beyond.

Cowboys | HC not worried about Dez Bryant

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 16:04:30 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant's threat to sit out of regular season games if he doesn't receive a long-term extension doesn't have head coach Jason Garrett worried. "It doesn't concern me one bit," Garrett said. "Dez loves football. He has a great passion for the game. He wants to be a great player. He wants our team to be great. He's been working every day to do that and we'll take care of the business as we go."

Fantasy Tip: Again, there have been no talks ongoing between Bryant and the team on a new extension. Bryant is not attending mandatory minicamp, but will not be fined for doing so as he has not signed his franchise tender. As long as Bryant doesn't hold out or get injured, he's a perennial WR1 in fantasy football.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant not in talks with Dallas

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 12:13:58 -0700

Updating previous reports, Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is willing to miss more than just the regular season opener if he does not receive a long-term contract extension. There are no talks between the two sides at this juncture.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant sounds serious about missing games that count if the Cowboys don't give him an extension. This situation still has a lot of time to play out either way. If Bryant plays the full season, he could finish as fantasy football's top wide receiver.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant will skip minicamp

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 13:36:13 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant will not show up for mandatory minicamp Tuesday, June 16, as he awaits a long-term deal.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't be a huge surprise, as Bryant has even threatened to skip the start of the regular season if he doesn't receive a new deal. While there is still plenty of time for a new deal to get done and for Bryant to end his holdout, it's not promising that he's willing to miss minicamp and has considered skipping Week 1. At this point, we'll assume he laces up, in which case he should be drafted as a high-end WR1.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant to skip Week 1?

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 12:21:01 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is considering skipping the regular season opener if he does not receive a long-term deal by July 15, according to sources. Bryant has not signed his franchise tender at this point and has until July 15 to sign a multi-year deal with the Cowboys. It is believed the team has not offered Bryant a new deal since before the 2014 season.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation since Bryant could continue his holdout for a while. The two sides likely will spend the next few weeks working on a new deal. Bryant should be one of the first receivers selected in drafts this season, and his value probably will not take a big hit if he misses one week.

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 09:14:25 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant has not participated in organized team activities lately, according to head coach Jason Garrett. Garrett said he is not sure if Bryant will report next week.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant does not need to participate in offseason workouts since he has a good understanding of the offense but is looking for a new contract. Bryant should report when training camp begins and is one of the top wide receivers in fantasy drafts this season.
