2014 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.

Comment: Bryant has earned a risk flag next to his name thanks to his off-field incidents. His knee tendinitis is noteworthy but doesn't change his value.

News From The Past 90 Days
Cowboys plan to play starters in Week 17     -- Mon Dec 22 4:30 pm --

Per HC Jason Garrett
Cowboys HC Jason Garrett says starters will play vs. Washington on Sunday. (Jon Machota on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: As is normal protocol for a team that cannot do much to improve its playoff seeding, Garrett's assertion doesn't mean his starters will play the entire game. Daily leaguers or owners playing in Week 17 championships shouldn't expect Tony Romo, DeMarco Murray, Dez Bryant or Jason Witten to play more than a half.
Injury Romo out, Brandon Weeden to start     -- Sun Nov 2 9:30 am --

Back injury will keep Cowboys' QB on the sideline
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will not play Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, a source confirmed to ESPN. Romo suffered two transverse process fractures in last week's loss to the Washington Redskins, according to sources. While there can be no further damage, Romo did not practice all week and remained in a good amount of pain later in the week. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: The Cowboys have a bye in Week 11 so there is a possibility that Romo will sit the next two games. With Brandon Weeden at quarterback expect the Cowboys to have a run-heavy approach meaning slight downgrades for Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams.
