2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
While Bryant improved upon his production as a rookie in 2010, his 63 receptions, 928 yards, and 9 touchdowns in 2011 still left the Cowboys and his fantasy owners wanting more. Watching the talented 6’2”, 217 pound Bryant when he is on his game makes that feeling completely justifiable. Basically, the sky is the limit for Bryant but the question is whether his work ethic and attitude will ever allow him to reach his potential. He figures to get plenty of opportunity to make that happen in 2012 with no proven third wide receiver on the roster. But that was the expectation last season and he finished the season with just 103 targets, the 4th lowest total amongst the league’s top 20 fantasy wide receivers. Presumably head coach has noticed that Bryant’s explosiveness warrants more touches. In essence, adding Bryant to your fantasy roster means drafting him for his potential rather than his past production and doing that too often can be a risky proposition. As evidenced by his latest off-field incident, which may or may not lead to discipline from the league, Bryant is a high-risk, high reward wideout. Consider him a WR2 with a huge upside in 2012.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Dez Bryant has hairline fracture in knee     -- Wed Sep 28 2:45 pm --

Could play in Week 4
Jason Garrett says Cowboys' Dez Bryant has a hairline fracture in the bone of one of his knees, hopeful the WR will play on Sunday. (Mike Barrows on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Bryant injured his knee in Week 3 and while the injury looked bad he was able to return. He missed practice today but Garrett believes there is a chance he could practice tomorrow. It's hard to imagine Bryant playing with this injury be we'll have to wait for more concrete info on the injury. Bryant owners should have a Plan B in place for Week 4.
Injury Dez Bryant to have MRI, expected to play Week 4     -- Tue Sep 27 11:05 am --

Cowboys WR will undergo test Tuesday
Dallas Star-Telegram writer Clarence Hill (@clarencehilljr) on Twitter: "Per another source, Dez Bryant is expected to have MRI today." (Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Bryant will undergo an MRI on his right knee today. He was injured on the second play from scrimmage Sunday but played through the injury, and is tentatively expected to play in Week 4.
Injury Tony Romo out 6-10 weeks, broken bone in back     -- Sat Aug 27 3:00 pm --

Injury bug hits Romo again
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Tony Romo is expected to miss 6-10 weeks with a broken bone in his back. The team will be announcing the injury; it’s unclear whether the team will put a duration on the absence. It means that those Cowboys fans who had been clamoring for the Dak Prescott era to begin sooner than later will be getting their wish. For better or worse. (ProFootballTalk)

FF Today's Take: Romo has a history with back problems but it doesn't appear that this recent injury is related. In any case, if Romo is unable to start the season Dak Prescott is expected to get the call. He's played well in the pre-season but doesn't have the experience or chemistry with the receivers. Dez Bryant will slide a little on this news. Romo should not be drafted.
Injury Dez Bryant sustains concussion in practice     -- Tue Aug 23 10:13 am --

Cowboys WR out for Thursday preseason game against Seattle
Mike Fisher (@fishsports) from 105.3 The Fan on Twitter: "BREAKING @DezBryant sustained a concussion in practice on Mon. (Joining T. Crawford). Both OUT for #Cowboys at #Seahawks @1053thefan" (Twitter)

FF Today's Take: It's never a good thing for a player to sustain a concussion, but Dez Bryant should have enough time to recover so that his Week 1 status isn't in doubt. Still, this is a situation worth monitoring, especially with Dez being drafted in the first round of many PPR leagues.
