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.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant locked in

Sun, 02 Jul 2017 17:28:55 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant was the best offensive player during OTAs and minicamp, according to ESPN.com's Todd Archer, and Archer said Bryant "caught everything that came his way."

Fantasy Tip: Bryant was a boom-or-bust play last year as he battled injuries, but he still managed to haul in eight touchdowns. Bryant has WR1 upside when healthy, so don't hesitate to scoop him off if he slips a bit in your draft.

Cowboys | Ryan Switzer working with Dez Bryant

Thu, 08 Jun 2017 19:13:27 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Ryan Switzer said WR Dez Bryant is his go-to guy for advice, and he is trying to emulate Bryant's ability to pull down contested catches.

Fantasy Tip: Switzer's biggest contributions in 2017 could come on special teams, but he has the potential to be a dangerous weapon from the slot. You can probably leave him on the waiver wire in redraft leagues, but Switzer should be stashed in all dynasty formats.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant feeling healthy

Thu, 01 Jun 2017 09:13:24 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant said the way that he's feeling right now has led him to believe that he's "not dealing with really anything." He added: "I feel damn good. I know once I'm 100 (percent), I'm hard to deal with. That confidence is just steady expanding. I'll tell you this, I've never been (more) ready for training camp."

Fantasy Tip: Bryant has missed 10 games over the last two seasons due to various injuries, but it looks like he'll be entering the new campaign with a clean bill of health for the first time in awhile. If Bryant can avoid landing on the shelf, he has a very good chance of returning to the form that allowed him to notch 85-plus catches, 1,200-plus receiving yards and double-digit touchdowns in three consecutive seasons. In other words, he'll have as high a ceiling as anyone at his position.

Cowboys | Noah Brown the next Dez Bryant?

Sun, 07 May 2017 19:14:15 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Noah Brown is the same type of player as WR Dez Bryant, according to Bryan Broaddus of DallasCowboys.com, and Broaddus said Brown is a "nasty blocker" with a big catch radius.
