Cowboys | Dez Bryant has hairline fracture

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 11:50:23 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) has a hairline fracture in his knee, but head coach Jason Garrett hopes Bryant will be able to play against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 4. Bryant is considered day-to-day at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation this week to see if Bryant will be able to play in Week 4. He probably would receive limited snaps if he is active for the game, which would make him a risky option. Owners will need a backup plan ready in case Bryant is ruled out. Dak Prescott's fantasy value would take a hit if Bryant is not able to play, but it would help the value of Cole Beasley, Terrance Williams and Jason Witten. Ezekiel Elliott could also be a more attractive option since the team could run the ball more.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant out of practice

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 09:09:49 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) is out of practice Wednesday, Sept. 28, and head coach Jason Garrett said Bryant's knee was still under evaluation.

Fantasy Tip: No. 88 has been a disappointment through three weeks, and his knee was torqued in an ugly way. He was supposed to have an MRI Monday, but two days later there is still no word on his status. His health makes him a risky WR3 in fantasy this week.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant awaiting MRI

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 06:40:43 -0700

Updating previous reports, Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) has yet to have the MRI on his knee, but the team is anticipating he'll play in Week 4, according to owner Jerry Jones.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant has been an afterthought the first three weeks, but he'll have a ripe matchup against the San Francisco 49ers this week. He's a low-end WR2 if the knee checks out.

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 05:26:41 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) will undergo an MRI on his knee Monday, Sept. 26, after initial X-rays revealed a sprained knee.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant was hurt early in the Week 3 game, but he returned soon after. He has just an 11-140-1 line in three games, but he has a solid matchup against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 4. He's a low-end WR2 right now.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant playing more in the slot

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 21:50:58 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant was given more snaps in the slot in Week 2, which was part of a conscious effort from head coach Jason Garrett and offensive coordinator Scott Linehan to get Bryant more involved in the offense.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners don't really want to know how the sausage is made, but Bryant's seven catches for 102 yards in Week 2 sure looked a lot more appealing than his one-catch, eight-yard opener. Look for the team to continue finding ways to keep Bryant involved, and keep him in your lineup as a WR1.

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.
