Cowboys | Dez Bryant present at OTAs

Thu, 28 May 2015 20:26:44 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant showed up to OTAs Thursday, May 28, and participated in individual drills but didn't do any group work.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant is posturing for a new deal, but his status for the regular season isn't in doubt. Regardless of where his contract situation stands, he should be one of the first receivers off the board and a regular starter at FantasyScore in 2015.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant missed at OTAs

Thu, 28 May 2015 15:41:19 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant has not been present for the first two days of organized team activities as he continues to wait for a long-term deal. Bryant has yet to sign the franchise tag that was placed on him this offseason. Bryant has been to the Cowboys' facility this offseason, but has stayed away from the team as he waits for a new deal. He is expected to be absent until the start of training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant should still be ready for the start of the regular season, whether he receives a new long-term deal or not, which seems unlikely at this point. Bryant is arguably the best wide receiver in the NFL and in fantasy football when he's at his best. He should be taken in the first or second round of fantasy drafts this year.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant not at OTAs

Tue, 26 May 2015 12:05:21 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant was not present for the first day of organized team activities Tuesday, May 26. The workouts are voluntary.

Fantasy Tip: This could be Bryant's way of voicing his displeasure with the organization for not signing him to a long-term deal this offseason. If he were skipping mandatory workouts this would be bigger news, but at least they're voluntary. As long as Bryant shows up for the regular season and is healthy, he's a candidate for the No. 1 overall fantasy wide receiver.

NFL | Potential 2016 free-agent WR class stout

Wed, 20 May 2015 09:28:45 -0700

The upcoming group of potential free-agent wide receivers includes four of the positions most dominant players, including Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant, Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green and Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones, according to Spotrac.com. All four players are engaging in contract discussions on some level with their current teams.

Fantasy Tip: While it looks impressive on paper, the reality of any of these guys hitting the open market seems extremely low, let alone the idea of all four of them at the same time. Nevertheless, each one has something extra to play for in 2015, which only helps their fantasy value, all things being equal. Each player makes for a fine WR1 to build a fantasy team around.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant attends offseason program

Mon, 18 May 2015 10:11:37 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is participating in the strength and conditioning program, despite being at odds with the Cowboys regarding his current contract. "I wanted to be here for my teammates," Bryant said. "In the past two years that locker room has changed. There is something special in there." If Bryant isn't given a long-term deal, he may not practice with the team until late July when training camp begins.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant will play for the Cowboys this year; it's just a matter of how much money he'll be making and for how long. When healthy, Bryant is one of the few receivers who can be considered No. 1 overall at the position. He's worth a late first-round pick or an early second-round pick in fantasy drafts.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant's contract about risk

Wed, 13 May 2015 17:03:28 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant isn't appearing likely to receive the long-term deal he wants from the Cowboys this offseason. Even if the Cowboys are able to agree on the financial terms with Bryant, the wide receiver will need to agree to some type of off-the-field structure designed to limit his risk.

Fantasy Tip: If anything, playing under the franchise tag is a positive for Bryant's fantasy value. Bryant will continue to seek a long-term contract, possibly leading to superior play on the field. Bryant will enter the 2015 season as a top-five receiver, with top three-upside.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant to return punts?

Mon, 11 May 2015 11:27:58 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant may return punts in 2015, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones. With the loss of former WR Dwayne Harris, the Cowboys are in need of a new punt returner. Jones said that WR Cole Beasley will probably be the first option, but that Bryant could also be used since he returned punts in college and has done so in his professional career.

Fantasy Tip: It would be somewhat surprising to see Bryant play a lot on special teams with how valuable he is on offense. Whoever does the returning will have added value in leagues that score returns.

Cowboys | Other WRs affecting Dez Bryant contract

Sun, 10 May 2015 20:03:29 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant's contract talks have been slowed by more than just issues between Bryant and the Cowboys, executive vice president Stephen Jones said Wednesday, May 6. "I think a lot people want to naturally assume it's a Dez Bryant-Cowboy issue," Jones said. "I think it's a bigger issue than that right now. There's three or four young receivers in this league other than Dez that are going to be looking for long term contracts."

Fantasy Tip: Players like A.J. Green, Demaryius Thomas and Julio Jones all looking for new deals, as well, and it is understandable that Bryant would want the market for young receivers to be somewhat set before he agrees on a dollar amount for his new deal. Despite the off-field distractions, there is no reason Bryant shouldn't be one of the first receivers taken in fantasy drafts.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant skipping workouts

Sun, 10 May 2015 10:40:18 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant has not been participating in offseason workouts, but offensive coordinator Scott Linehan is not worried since he believes Bryant will be ready when he does practice. Linehan said he has met with Bryant on several occasions at the team's facility.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant has not signed his franchise tender yet, so he does not have to take part in any workouts. Bryant likely will report when training camp starts and should be one of the first receivers selected in fantasy drafts next season.

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 07:16:53 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is absent for the beginning of the team's voluntary workouts this week.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant remains one of the elite wide receivers in fantasy and is worth consideration late in the first round of traditional drafts.
