2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Between his own foot injury, from which he likely came back too early, and Romo’s twice broken collarbone, Dez Bryant had by far his worst season in 2015. In nine games he only caught 31 balls for 401 yards and 3 touchdowns. The Cowboys did nothing to upgrade their backup quarterback position so Romo missing time again is a risk for Bryant, but as long as his foot is completely healed there’s little reason to doubt a complete bounce back season for the veteran. Bryant had 56 touchdown receptions in his first five seasons and has been an unstoppable force in the redzone given his hulking size and strength at 6’2” and 220 pounds.

Bryant has been cleared for the start of training camp and should quickly get over the mental hurdles associated with trusting his surgically repaired foot. Fantasy owners shouldn’t dismiss his 2015 season in their evaluation but should give considerable weight to his three-year averages from 2012-2014 (91-1311-13.7) when making their 2016 projections. Bryant is an emotional player who should come out with a chip on his shoulder and dominate, as he is clearly the best player on offensive side of the ball for Dallas. Those that draft him will need to cross their fingers and hope that Romo’s collarbone, and the rest of him as well, holds up for the entire season.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Dez Bryant expected to return in Week 8
Sidelined since Week 3 with knee bruise
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 24, 6:30 pm

Dallas Cowboys
Cowboys expect WR Dez Bryant, who missed past three games due to knee injury, to play Sunday night vs Eagles, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Cowboys' brass has seemingly pinpointed this Eagles' game as his most likely return date, so it will be a surprise if he doesn't play. Philly has been playing very good defense for most of the year, but cornerback may be its weakest link. Although rust could come into play, owners should treat Dez as a WR2 next week with WR1 upside.


Injury Dez says he's playing against Philly
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Oct 17, 8:00 am

Dallas Cowboys
As Dez Bryant walks off field he finds me and tells me "Don't have to ask me anymore, I'm good...playing against Philly" (Jane Slater)

FFToday's Take: The Cowboys have a bye in Week 7, which means Bryant should return in Week 8 against the Eagles. Bryant hasn't played since Week 3 but will be on the WR2 radar when he returns.


Dez Bryant likely out at least one more week
Missed Week 4 with knee injury
By: Doug Orth | Thu Oct 6, 7:35 pm

Dallas Cowboys
WR Dez Bryant is described as unlikely to play Sunday, source said, though he'll try to test his knee tomorrow in practice. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Outside of a hiccup against the Broncos in Week 3, the Bengals' defense is usually very tough on receivers, so Bryant owners shouldn't have trouble replacing the production they may have otherwise gotten from him at less than 100 percent. Cole Beasley should push for 10 targets, while Brice Butler and Terrance Williams are serviceable - if low-end WR3 - options.


Injury Dez Bryant not expected to play
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 2, 8:30 am

Dallas Cowboys
Nothing has changed for Cowboys WR Dez Bryant. He’ll warmup, but not expected to play. CB Orlando Scandrick (hamstrings) not expected to go (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Cowboys will wait for the inactive list to make it official but Bryant owners need to have plan B in place. The good news is, Bryant's injury may just be a bone bruise and could return to action in Week 5.


Injury Dez Bryant has hairline fracture in knee
Could play in Week 4
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Sep 28, 2:45 pm

Dallas Cowboys
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)

FFToday'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
Cowboys WR will undergo test Tuesday
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Sep 27, 11:05 am

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

FFToday'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.
