|Draft: 2010 Round 1 (24)
College: Oklahoma State
Ht: 6’2” Wt: 218 DOB: 1988-11-04 Age: 27
|While Bryant improved upon his production as a rookie in 2010, his 63 receptions, 928 yards, and 9 touchdowns in 2011 still left the Cowboys and his fantasy owners wanting more. Watching the talented 6’2”, 217 pound Bryant when he is on his game makes that feeling completely justifiable. Basically, the sky is the limit for Bryant but the question is whether his work ethic and attitude will ever allow him to reach his potential. He figures to get plenty of opportunity to make that happen in 2012 with no proven third wide receiver on the roster. But that was the expectation last season and he finished the season with just 103 targets, the 4th lowest total amongst the league’s top 20 fantasy wide receivers. Presumably head coach has noticed that Bryant’s explosiveness warrants more touches. In essence, adding Bryant to your fantasy roster means drafting him for his potential rather than his past production and doing that too often can be a risky proposition. As evidenced by his latest off-field incident, which may or may not lead to discipline from the league, Bryant is a high-risk, high reward wideout. Consider him a WR2 with a huge upside in 2012.

Should be ready for off-season program

FF Today's Take: We knew this was coming. It was a lost season for Bryant in 2015 after injuring his foot in Week 1. He finished as the WR3 (2012), WR5 (2013) and WR3 (2014). He'll be a top ten WR target in 2016.
| Dez Bryant to have surgery, out for Week 17 -- Wed Dec 30 12:30 pm --|
More surgery on right foot
|The Dallas Cowboys have, in fact, shut down Dez Bryant.
Bryant will be placed on injured reserve Wednesday, ending his season with one game to play because of foot and ankle injuries.
Coach Jason Garrett said Bryant is expected to have another surgery on his right foot as well as ankle in the near future. He said the Cowboys don't believe Bryant came back too soon from the initial surgery in September. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: It was a lost season for the Cowboys star receiver who injured his foot Week 1 causing him to miss the next five weeks. Bryant never had more than 5 receptions in any game and only topped 100 receiving yards once. He should be ready for training camp in July.
| Dez Bryant misses practice again -- Thu Dec 24 10:59 am --|
Foot and ankle injuries
|Garrett said Dez Bryant is dealing with foot and ankle injuries. He is not expected to practice again today. (Clarence Hill on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Bryant missed practice Wednesday as well and although the team has stated that they will not shut down Bryant for the remainder of the season, his status for Week 16 remains a question mark. Bryant hasn't topped 62 receiving yards since Week 9 and is struggling to produce with the Cowboys backup QBs. If he plays, he's no better than a flex option with Kellen Moore at quarterback.
| Tony Romo out for the season -- Fri Nov 27 4:00 pm --|
After re-fracturing collarbone
|Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Friday that quarterback Tony Romo’s season is done after he fractured his left collarbone for the second time this season. During a radio interview on KRLD-FM radio in Dallas, Jones said that Romo suffered a hairline fracture that will not require surgery. The injury, suffered late in the third quarter of Thursday’s 33-14 loss to the Carolina Panthers, will sideline the 35-year-old Romo for the remaining five games of the regular season. Romo, who played in just two complete games this season, threw five touchdowns and seven interceptions in four games. After returning from the original broken collarbone — which occurred at Philadelphia in Week 2 — Romo threw a combined five interceptions against the Miami Dolphins and Panthers. (USA Today)|
FF Today's Take: With Matt Cassel likely under center for the rest of the season, it's hard to get too excited about the fantasy outlook for players like Terrance Williams and Jason Witten. Darren McFadden and Dez Bryant are currently the only Cowboys' players worth owning for fantasy purposes.
