Dez Bryant underwent another surgery on his troublesome foot in January. He is expected to participate in camp, but given Bryant's history with his foot, this is not a given.

Summary

Foot injuries are a concern for any player, but for a receiver they can be particularly concerning. The fact Dez Bryant had a second bone graft in January after an injury-riddled and disappointing season, likely means fantasy owners need to see him dominate in training camp before paying full value for the perennial Pro Bowler. Let's state the obvious -- when healthy Bryant is as good as anyone at the position. With Tony Romo back under center, Bryant can produce 1st round value provided his feet are okay. That's a big IF, but we'll get evidence later in the summer one way or another. (May 21)
