Summary

Despite posturing to the contrary, the Cowboys signed Dez Bryant to a 5-year, $70mm contract with $43.5mm in guaranteed money. Now that his long-term financial future is secured, Bryant can focus on dominating opposing defenses in the way we've become accustomed. Bryant will deliver elite numbers regardless of game script, but it's worth noting if the running game falters without Demarco Murray, Bryant could get a higher volume of targets and challenge to be the #1 fantasy wide receiver. With his track record of production through nagging injuries, he is one of the safest picks at his position. (August 16)

Cowboys | Dez Bryant likely will sit out (Fri Aug 28, 03:55 PM) - Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (hamstring) likely will be held out of the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, according to owner/general manager Jerry Jones. Bryant probably will miss the final preseason game as well since the starters usually do not play.

Our View: Bryant doesn't need the work and he remains a solid WR1 in all formats. We'd rather see him get his hamstring right than throw him into a meaningless game and risk more injury.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant increasing reps (Thu Aug 27, 11:53 AM) - Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (hamstring) has continued to increase his repetitions in practice and had two touchdowns in one-on-one drills Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Our View: Bryant remains near the top of our elite WR1s and we expect big things from him this season. We're not sold on the ground game, so we actually expect more passing this season and Bryant will be the main beneficiary of that.
