Summary

Dez Bryant came into last season with questions about his health and whether the transition from Tony Romo to Dak Prescott would stifle the offense. The Cowboys finished 13-3 and the offense was a top 5 unit in points scored, and Bryant was a key part of the resurgence. Yet, he wasn't the dominant receiver we've come to know before the 2015 season. Bryant has few physical peers, which allows him to win contested battles more often than not. He's also got top-end speed and runs precise routes; which combine to make him a matchup nightmare for opposing defensive backs. Optimists will point to Bryant's eight touchdowns and 15.9 yards-per-catch average. Pessimists will note another subpar catch rate (52%), three missed games, and failure to reach 1,000 yards. The truth lies somewhere in between. We know Bryant can vie for top honors as a fantasy receiver if he's healthy, but we also know better than to draft him under that assumption. (July 15)

Cowboys | Dez Bryant misses conditioning run (Fri Jul 21, 05:33 PM) - Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (illness) was three hours late for his conditioning run Friday, July 21, and did not run. Bryant said he has been dealing with a sinus infection and headaches recently and apologized to the coaching staff for being late.

Our View: We aren't terribly worried about this and the Cowboys wont be either. With Ezekiel Elliott potentially suspended, Bryant could be in line for an early season bump. We will know more when we have more information about any punishment the league hands down. Regardless, we expect Bryant to be one of the top receivers in fantasy again this year.
