Cowboys | Dez Bryant deal done soon?

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 14:28:48 -0700

Updating previous reports, Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant's long-term deal could be done as soon as the middle of the week, according to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com.

Fantasy Tip: There have been encouraging signs recently that seem to indicate Bryant's deal is a matter of when, not if. He's arguably the most dominant receiver in the NFL, but has not practiced with the team at all this offseason. It sounds like the deal should be completed before training camp, however. Bryant is a candidate for the No. 1 fantasy wide receiver this year.

Cowboys | Tony Romo talks Dez Bryant deal

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 12:37:31 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant's impending long-term deal is taking a while to get done, but QB Tony Romo believes it will work out. Romo said the NFL is a business, and that Bryant's absence during the offseason is part of that business aspect. However, Romo said he thinks a deal will work out.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant has until Wednesday, July 15 to get a long-term deal done, and there has supposedly been more positivity involved in the talks between both parties. It would be a shock to most if a deal didn't get done eventually and if Bryant actually held out. Assuming he does sign and is ready for Week 1, he should be drafted as a top-five fantasy wide receiver.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant bluffing?

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 19:05:13 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant has threatened to miss games if he does not receive a long-term deal, but the Cowboys are not budging on their original offers because they believe Bryant is bluffing.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant is one of several top receivers that are looking for long-term deals, and nobody wants to be the first to sign. When all is said and done, expect Bryant to be on the field for Week 1. He should be one of the first receivers off the board in fantasy drafts.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant deal coming soon?

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 11:39:09 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant impending long-term deal may be announced after the July 4 weekend, according to Mike Fisher of CBS Dallas-Fort Worth. The comfort level in the negotiation process has supposedly increased of late. Both sides have until Wednesday, July 15, to agree on a long-term deal.

Fantasy Tip: This is certainly encouraging news since the previous reports of there being no progress in the contract talks. A holdout now seems highly unlikely. All Bryant needs to do now is sign the contract and stay healthy. He should be drafted as a top-five fantasy wide receiver with added value in point-per-reception leagues.

Cowboys | No progress in Dez Bryant talks

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 09:43:50 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant has had no progress in contract talks with the team, according to sources. The Cowboys are not budging off their offer of a long-term deal with $20 million guaranteed initially and more guarantees later. The team believes Bryant is bluffing about missing a game or two in a holdout. The team also believes Bryant has financial issues and needs the money, according to the sources.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant is a first-round pick consideration universally. It still appears his holdout won't drag out into the regular season.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant's agent meets with 'Boys

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 13:25:22 -0700

The agent for Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant met face-to-face with the team for the first time in nearly four months, per sources. Bryant hasn't yet signed his $12.823 million franchise tender, and he has a deadline of July 15 to agree to a long-term deal. After that date Bryant will need to play out the season under the tender and the two sides could discuss an extension after the season.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant's side has threatened to miss games in 2015, but the Cowboys don't believe it, as it would cost Bryant $754,000 per week. Owner Jerry Jones fully expects Bryant to be in the lineup for Week 1 against the New York Giants, and fantasy owners should be drafting as though that will be the case.

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 11:41:36 -0700

Cowboys | Owner expects Dez Bryant to play Week 1

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 15:07:51 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is expected to play Week 1 with or without a long-term contract, according to owner Jerry Jones. Jones said he knows how competitive Bryant is and how much he wants to support his teammates. Jones even believes Bryant will be with the team for training camp in late July. Bryant has until July 15 to sign a long-term deal.

Fantasy Tip: Perhaps this is a subtle message from Jones to Bryant. Bryant won't be required to show up for training camp if he still hasn't signed his franchise tender once it starts. Stay tuned to this situation leading up to the deadline and beyond.

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is expected to play in the regular season opener, according to owner Jerry Jones.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant said he is considering sitting out Week 1 if he does not receive a long-term contract, so owners should monitor the situation over the next few weeks. Bryant should be one of the top receivers drafted in fantasy leagues this season even if he does miss one game.
