Summary

At 6'6" and 310 pounds Desmond Bryant is a powerful and athletic big man who is a great fit as a 3-4 end. As a pass rusher he is in par with the better players the league at the position. It is a shortcoming in the tackle columns that has held his fantasy value in check since joining the Browns. In 2014 Bryant was 25-23-5 in fifteen games. Last season he was injured early in week two and missed the following two games. Bryant still managed 6 sacks but totaled just 24 solo tackles. His career best of 30 tackles came in 2011 when he was an interior lineman for the Raiders, so his upside in that area seems rather limited. If Bryant can stay healthy and get some help from his supporting cast it would not be a surprise to see him come away with 7 or 8 sacks this season. Unfortunately it would be a surprise if he were to finish with much more than 30 solo tackles. He has value in leagues with deeper rosters but is little more than a bye week flier in most twelve team leagues starting two linemen. (May 27)
