Cowboys | Dez Bryant posts triple digits

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 22:47:49 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant racked up seven receptions for 102 yards in the Week 2 game against the Washington Redskins. He was targeted 12 times.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant is developing quite the rapport with rookie Dak Prescott, and perhaps there is fantasy life after Tony Romo after all. Bryant struggled last year with the turnstile at quarterback, but he remains a WR1 despite the rookie's presence under center this year.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant won't have it forced to him

Thu, 15 Sep 2016 08:02:20 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant won't have the ball forced into him, according to QB Dak Prescott. "That's our guy," Prescott said. "He needs catches. He needs balls. He had some balls thrown at him. He wants to bring them down and he'd say it himself he wants to bring that touchdown, make that play. I think if he has that, regardless of two catches or not, if he has a touchdown I don't know if we're still talking about this. I'm going to continue to run our offense. If Dez is the read, Dez is the read."

Fantasy Tip: Bryant had just one catch for eight yards in Week 1, and he was targeted just five times. He should see a lot of Josh Norman in Week 2 against the Washington Redskins. So it might be a week to shy away from 88 in DFS. In traditional leagues, he's still a high-end WR2.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant quiet in opener

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 06:41:24 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant had one catch for eight yards in the season opener Sunday, Sept. 11.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't be a norm, but growing pains should be expected with a rookie under center. No. 88 has a decent matchup with the Washington Redskins next week.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant will be limited

Sun, 28 Aug 2016 08:44:37 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (concussion) will be limited to individual drills during practice Sunday, Aug. 28, because he has not been fully cleared by the medical staff.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant has a few weeks to recover from the concussion, so he should have a decent chance to be ready for Week 1. Bryant's value will take a hit because of Tony Romo's injury but should still be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues as a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant doesn't travel with team

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 16:48:45 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (concussion) didn't make the trip to Seattle for the team's next preseason game Thursday, August 25.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant has already been ruled out for the game, but fortunately, this concussion doesn't figure to threaten his status for the season opener in just a few weeks. As long as he's able to stay healthy, unlike a year ago, Bryant has the potential to pace all wide receivers in fantasy. He's still worth being drafted in the earliest rounds.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant out with concussion

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 06:47:24 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (concussion) suffered a concussion in practice Monday, Aug. 22, and he has been ruled out for the third preseason game Thursday, Aug. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant has two weeks to recover before the start of the season, and that might be questionable with all of the phases of the protocol he has to clear. This could cause him to slip to a low-end WR1.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant having best camp yet

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 09:50:27 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant responded to a question at practice Wednesday, Aug. 17, by saying this has been his best training camp of his seven-year career. Bryant pointed to being healthy and in great shape, as well as crediting the strong play of Cowboys CBs Morris Claiborne and Brandon Carr.

Fantasy Tip: The healthy status is what everyone should be focused on with Bryant. He's a physical beast when he is on his game and warrants WR1 placement near the turn of the first and second rounds of fantasy drafts.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant is surprise active

Sat, 13 Aug 2016 20:31:40 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant wasn't expected to play in the preseason opener against the Los Angeles Rams Saturday, Aug. 13, but he played most of the first quarter and posted two grabs for 28 yards, including an 18-yard touchdown from rookie QB Dak Prescott.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant helped the rookie with a nice grab in the front left corner of the end zone in the first quarter and appears to be in mid-season form. He returns as a bona fide WR1 who will be off the board by the early part of Round 2 in all fantasy formats.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant sloppy in first practice

Sun, 31 Jul 2016 17:14:27 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant dropped multiple passes in individual drills during his first practice Saturday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant should shake off the rust by the time Week 1 rolls around. His value is heavily tied to the fragile collarbone of Tony Romo, but Bryant should still be drafted in the first couple of rounds as a WR1.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant's struggles more mental

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 16:50:45 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) said his hardships last season were more mental than physical. Bryant said he was off his game from a mental standpoint, and the waiting while he was injured was also difficult.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant should be good to go for training camp, physically and mentally. As long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks, he's worth a late first-round or early second-round pick in any fantasy format, especially with Tony Romo on the mend.
