2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
Bryant finished with a somewhat disappointing 9.8 fantasy points per game in 2016, well off his career-best 14.3 in 2014 when he posted 1,320 yards and 16 touchdowns on 136 targets. After playing 16-game slates in his previous three seasons, various injuries have limited the former first round pick to just 22 games dating back to the start of 2015.

On a positive note, Bryant enters the season healthy and showed a positive rapport with Prescott in the 13 games the two played together in 2016. Despite a low catch total (50 catches on 96 targets), Bryant posted a career-best 15.9 yards per catch while on pace for double digit touchdowns.

One of the biggest knocks against Bryant and the main reason why he is not ranked higher is the demanding schedule he faces to start the season, with tough matchups against elite cornerbacks like Patrick Peterson, Aquib Talib, and Trumaine Johnson. Also, Bryant will be shadowed for four divisional games by Josh Norman and Janoris Jenkins - two cornerbacks that have limited his production in the past.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Dez Bryant expected to play
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Nov 12, 7:20 am

Dallas Cowboys
Cowboys WR Dez Bryant, listed as questionable for today with knee and ankle injury, has said he will play vs. Falcons. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Bryant stated earlier in the week that he would be out there and it appears he will. Even with some questions about his health he will be on the WR1 radar in a matchup with the Falcons that has the highest total of the week (48.5).


Injury Dez Bryant misses practice Wednesday
WR Terrance Williams limited in practice
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 8, 12:00 pm

Dallas Cowboys
The Cowboys will kick off their practice week without wide receiver Dez Bryant or left tackle Tyron Smith on the field. Both players emerged from Sunday’s victory over the Chiefs with injuries and coach Jason Garrett said that they will not be practicing on Wednesday. Garrett said, via Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, that they hope Smith will be able to practice at some point this week after hurting his groin against Kansas City. Bryant hurt his ankle and knee during the game and Garrett described the latter injury as a bruise on Wednesday. Wide receiver Terrance Williams also hurt his ankle and Garrett said he will be limited in practice. (ProFootball Talk)

FFToday's Take: Dez Bryant's injury appears more likely to keep him limited or completely out of action for Week 10 so be sure to monitor his status throughout the week. Williams is coming off his best game of the year after catching all nine of his targets for 141 receiving yards.


Injury Dez Bryant dealing with multiple injuries
"Day-to-day" with knee and ankle injuries
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 6, 5:25 pm

Dallas Cowboys
Jason Garrett said Dez Bryant is dealing with knee and ankle injuries from Sunday's game and said the receiver is "day by day." Garrett said he did not believe the knee injury was too troublesome. (ESPN - Todd Archer)

FFToday's Take: Bryant injured his ankle in the second half of the Cowboys' Week 9 win over the Chiefs and did not return. The 29-year-old hasn't exceeded the 73 yards receiving he posted Sunday and isn't seeing as many "high-point" balls in the end zone as he used to. With that said, he's seeing enough volume to be trusted as a WR2 on a weekly basis.
