Dez Bryant suffered a concussion on August 22nd.

Summary

Bryant has answered all the questions this preseason, dominating in practice and preseason game action. Unfortunately Bryant suffered a concussion in late August and Tony Romo suffered a broken bone in his back. That's enough risk to knock Bryant down to the bottom of the WR1 tier. He showed instant chemistry with Dak Prescott so hope is not lost, but if choosing between Bryant and the likes of Allen Robinson, defer to the younger star. (August 27)

Cowboys | Dez Bryant will be limited (Sun Aug 28, 11:44 AM) - Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (concussion) will be limited to individual drills during practice Sunday, Aug. 28, because he has not been fully cleared by the medical staff.

Our View: Bryant's concussion and the loss of Tony Romo may make first-round drafters pause if he is their top selection when they are on the clock. Allen Robinson is one of the best alternatives if Bryant is moving down a spot or two on your board. Dak Prescott has still left the Cowboys in better shape at quarterback than we could have expected a month ago.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant doesn't travel with team (Wed Aug 24, 07:48 PM) - Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (concussion) didn't make the trip to Seattle for the team's next preseason game Thursday, August 25.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant out with concussion (Tue Aug 23, 09:47 AM) - Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (concussion) suffered a concussion in practice Monday, Aug. 22, and he has been ruled out for the third preseason game Thursday, Aug. 25.

Our View: No need to worry about this injury at this time. However, monitor Bryant closely as he goes through the concussion protocol. The team is going to run as much as possible, but when they go through the air it will be a ton of Bryant. He's a low-end WR1 for fantasy owners in 2016.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant having best camp yet (Thu Aug 18, 12:50 PM) - Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant responded to a question at practice Wednesday, Aug. 17, by saying this has been his best training camp of his seven-year career. Bryant pointed to being healthy and in great shape, as well as crediting the strong play of Cowboys CBs Morris Claiborne and Brandon Carr.

Our View: Given how atrocious the defense is (yes we had to pull out a Thesaurus to come up with new ways to say "bad" when referencing the Cowboys D again), he's going to have to be at his best as the Cowboys may play from behind often. He's an easy WR1 in fantasy and will see a ton of yards. Our only concern is the health of Tony Romo and the questionable QB depth behind him. We still say take Bryant early if your drafts though.
