Cowboys | Dez Bryant meets with owner

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 10:47:00 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant met with owner/general manager Jerry Jones Tuesday, Aug. 26, to discuss his contract situation, according to sources. The two sides have talked about a contract extension for months but no deal has been reached at this point. The biggest obstacle in the talks appears to be the guaranteed money included in the deal.

Fantasy Tip: It would be nice if the two sides reached an agreement before the start of the season, but it should not be a distraction if no deal is reached. Bryant is entering the season as one of the top wide receivers in fantasy football.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant deal by Thursday?

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 17:18:42 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant could have a new contract before the team's preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28, sources in Dallas told NFL Media columnist Michael Silver.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like the Cowboys want their star receiver locked up before the season begins. Bryant is one of the best receivers in the NFL and in fantasy leagues, and an argument can be made that he should be the first receiver drafted. He has caught more touchdowns the past two years than any other player, and Dallas' suspect defense should ensure that the Cowboys will be throwing the ball a lot this year.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant talks heat up

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 16:08:52 -0700

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant's contract talks have reportedly intensified. Bryant is currently scheduled to make $1.78 million this year -- the final year of his rookie contract.

Fantasy Tip: It's becoming clearer the team is ready to commit to Bryant. When healthy, he is a top-tier talent and worthy of No. 1 consideration among receivers in fantasy drafts.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant willing to wait on contract

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 10:00:08 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is prepared to table contract discussions with the team if he doesn't have a new long-term deal by the beginning of the regular season. "I don't want to talk about it anymore," Bryant said. "Put it behind me. I love this game. Either way, I feel like I can't be distracted once I'm on the football field." He's due to be paid $1.78 million this year in the final year of his rookie deal. Bryant feels good progress has been made and that there is a "big chance" a deal is struck before Week 1.

Cowboys | Tony Romo impressive in debut

Sat, 16 Aug 2014 19:50:35 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) completed four of his five passes in his preseason debut Saturday, Aug. 16. His night included a 31-yard touchdown to WR Dez Bryant.

Fantasy Tip: Romo's back looked fine, albeit in limited action. Meanwhile, Dallas' defense looked atrocious, surrendering 37 points. High-scoring shootouts could become the norm for the Cowboys this year, and Romo has sneaky QB1 potential as a result. Don't forget about him when some of the bigger name quarterbacks are off the board.

He does it every day. He's really demonstrated some leadership qualities." Bryant is scheduled to make $1.78 million this year, and there is nothing imminent for a contract extension.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant probable

Fri, 27 Dec 2013 15:37:14 -0800

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (back) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 27, but is probable for Week 17 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Bryant expects to play and isn't likely to receive an epidural injection to relieve any pain like he did earlier this year. "I'm all natural, baby," Bryant said. "Feels 100 percent."

Fantasy Tip: You may want to downgrade Bryant a tad because of the injury and the fact that Kyle Orton will be under center. Still, it's a good matchup for Bryant, so as long as he can remain in the game, he should be a good fantasy option.

Typically, he's gotten many more than that, and I think his production speaks for itself that way. But he's one of those players you want to make sure you give him chances."

Cowboys | Owner wants Dez Bryant involved more

Tue, 12 Nov 2013 09:18:18 -0800

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wants to see the team utilize WR Dez Bryant more in the offense after the star receiver was targeted just twice against the New Orleans Saints in Week 10. Bryant has 52 catches for 749 yards and eight touchdowns this season. "We need to get him the ball more," Jones said. "I think that's the kind of thing that's a reasonable thing that you can adjust over a two-week period that we're going into with our bye week. How do we work to get him the ball more?"

Fantasy Tip: Bryant is often double-teamed by opposing defenses in order to make Tony Romo beat them elsewhere in the passing attack. Regardless, look for the Cowboys to go to him more than just twice when they return to action in Week 12. Bryant's back issues may have played a part in his lack of production against the Saints, too.

Fri, 08 Nov 2013 13:32:07 -0800

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (back) practiced again Friday, Nov. 8, and is probable for Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant's injury is no joke; he's dealt with back problems on and off since last year, and there is rumor that he may be dealing with a disc-related problem. It's nearly impossible to leave him off your starting lineup, but you may want to temper expectations if his back injury flares up.
