Cowboys | Dez Bryant finds end zone in Week 5

Mon, 09 Oct 2017 04:46:28 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant caught five passes for 52 yards and scored a touchdown in a 35-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Oct. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant's targets were down from a week ago, as he was targeted eight times as opposed to 13 in Week 4. That was likely a by-product of the Green Bay defense shadowing Bryant. Still, it was a good outing and Bryant remains a solid candidate to find the end zone.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant just misses century mark

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 17:22:51 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant hauled in five receptions for 98 yards in Week 4 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant would have had an even bigger day if he and his quarterback connected more. Dak Prescott targeted him 13 times in the loss. He remains a solid WR2 heading into Week 5 against the visiting Packers.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant salvages MNF outing with TD

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 22:41:44 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant managed only two catches for 12 yards in the team's Week 3 victory Monday, Sept. 25, against the Arizona Cardinals. He did, however, get into the end zone for the second time this season.

Fantasy Tip: This was a rare off night for the former first-round draft pick, as he was targeted just twice by Dak Prescott all game. In his defense, the Cowboys only dialed up 18 pass attempts, so don't expect another low-volume game from Bryant like this one any time soon. Despite the lackluster stat line, Bryant can still be viewed as a WR1 for all formats.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant not worried

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 20:43:45 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant has nine catches on 25 targets through two games, and he said while that level of efficiency is "not acceptable," he believes the connection between he and QB Dak Prescott will start clicking.

Fantasy Tip: To be fair, Bryant has faced some tough matchups to open the year, and he draws another one in Week 3 against Patrick Peterson and the Cardinals. He is a boom-or-bust WR2.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant gets into the end zone

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 20:46:53 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant racked up seven receptions for 59 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Broncos and he was targeted a game-high 16 times.

Fantasy Tip: Dak Prescott tried to find Bryant frequently, but Aqib Talib and the Denver secondary did a fairly decent job of keeping Bryant from making a difference when the game was still close. He'll look to find the end zone again in Week 3 at Arizona on Monday Night Football.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant held mostly in check

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 22:05:33 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant was targeted nine times in Week 1 against the Giants, but he managed just two grabs for 43 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant was blanketed all night by nemesis Janoris Jenkins, and the Giants cover man won most of the battles. The mercurial receiver will look to get on track in Week 2 on the road against the Broncos, but he might also be shadowed by Aqib Talib in that one.

Cowboys | Dak Prescott in sync with Dez Bryant

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 19:08:29 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott said having WR Dez Bryant healthy all offseason has allowed their "chemistry" to grow.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant has been boom or bust in recent years, but he should still be treated as a high-upside WR2 or low-end WR1. Prescott has QB1 potential after an impressive rookie season, but the small sample size is something to consider.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant impressive in short stint

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 17:22:05 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant finished with two catches for 55 yards and a touchdown while playing only a couple of series versus the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant was in midseason form on the opening drive, throwing down a defender on a 23-yard slant to begin the game before grabbing a deep back-shoulder throw and power his way into the end zone to cap off the drive. The 28-year-old receiver should be able to perform like a low-end WR1 for most of 2017, but his schedule to begin and end the season will do him no favors in that regard.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant, Jason Witten sitting Wednesday

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 12:43:35 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant and TE Jason Witten will not participate in practice Wednesday, July 26. Head coach Jason Garrett said he wants the veteran players to have a regular schedule during training camp that will not wear them out.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant and Witten probably will receive days off during the regular season as well because the team wants them to stay healthy. Both players will have big roles in the Cowboys passing game in 2017. Bryant should be considered a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues, while Witten probably should be a low-end No. 1 or No. 2 tight end.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant misses conditioning run

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 14:33:27 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (illness) was three hours late for his conditioning run Friday, July 21, and did not run. Bryant said he has been dealing with a sinus infection and headaches recently and apologized to the coaching staff for being late.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant could miss the start of training camp but likely will be back on the field early in camp. He finished the 2016 season with 796 yards and eight touchdowns and has a chance to improve on those stats this season. He should be considered a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.
