Cowboys | Dez Bryant officially questionable

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 16:42:50 -0700

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant likely will miss at least one week because of the injury, but owners will need to check the inactive list just in case. Cole Beasley, Terrance Williams and Jason Witten should receive more targets, but none of the players is more than a flex option.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant ruled out vs. 49ers

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 11:50:56 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) will not play in Week 4 versus the San Francisco 49ers. "Luckily, (the MRI results were) way better than I thought. Everything's good. Ready to get back on the field whenever that time is," Bryant said.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant also vowed to be smart about handling this injury. Considering how bad the news could have been, there is a strong possibility he only misses one game. Cole Beasley should be upgraded to a high-end WR3 for this matchup and should expect roughly 10 targets, while Jason Witten should also be heavily involved as well and may be the best bet for a receiving touchdown.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant comes down to pain threshold

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 08:55:49 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) is iffy for Week 4, but owner Jerry Jones said it would come down to Bryant's pain threshold.

Fantasy Tip: If that's all that dictates whether Bryant plays, it's fair to assume he'll try to play. He has struggled out of the gates, and the injury doesn't make his forecast any brighter. He's a risky flex option.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant a long shot this week?

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 06:36:37 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) seems like a long shot to play in Week 4, in the opinion of NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The team is hoping there is minimal risk for him to play, but they're aware the hairline fracture in his knee has the potential to be a three-week injury.

Fantasy Tip: Cole Beasley has been a bargain bin gem the first three weeks with 20 catches for 213 yards. If Bryant is out, expect him to remain a solid WR3 option against the San Francisco 49ers.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant fined by team

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 19:54:42 -0700

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) missed team meetings Tuesday, Sept. 27, and he was fined by the team for missing a scheduled MRI, multiple sources said Wednesday, Sept. 28. The amount of the fine is undisclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant has a hairline fracture in his knee, and is a question mark heading into Week 4. However, it's unlikely he'll face further discipline from the team regarding his absence Tuesday. Fantasy owners will still want to see him practice in full before pulling the trigger on him for the active lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant is dealing with a hairline fracture in his knee and is considered questionable for Week 4. Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation during the week.

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.
