Dez Bryant Fantasy News
Terrance Williams expected to start in 2014
Tuesday, February 4, 2014, 6:46pm
Williams was a big-play threat for Romo last season with 12 catches of 20 or more yards. Overall, Williams had 44 catches for 736 yards and five touchdowns, with three of those scores going for at least 20 yards.
Williams has good speed, and improved his route running as the season progressed. Becoming reliable is the key for Williams in his development. Bryant dealt with similar questions after his rookie season, and as you saw in 2013 he produced his first Pro Bowl season.
With Austin basically sidelined from Week 4 to Week 10, Williams was the #12 WR in fantasy, racking up 24 catches for 438 yards and five TDs in that seven-game span. He faded upon Austin’s return to starter’s snaps, but showed enough in his rookie season to make him an interesting late-round sleeper in 2014. The Cowboys figure to throw a lot under new OC Scott Linehan, who was pass-happy while in Detroit.

Dez Bryant tweaks back, not considered serious
Thursday, December 26, 2013, 11:39am
Update: Bryant injured his back in Wednesday's practice but team officials don't believe it's anything serious.
It’s something to monitor as we get closer to kickoff.
Tony Romo (back) 'only slightly improved'

MNF Injury Report - Cutler OUT
Saturday, December 7, 2013, 6:03pm
CB Morris Claiborne (hamstring)
WR Dwayne Harris (hamstring)
LB Lance Briggs (shoulder), QB Jay Cutler (ankle)
S Anthony Walters (groin)
G Kyle Long (ankle), WR Brandon Marshall (quadricep), S Major Wright (hamstring)
Jay Cutler hoped to be back for this game, but Josh McCown will get another start and continues to play well - likely giving the Bears more flexibility with Culter's ankle. WR Brandon Marshall is probable, he didn't practice Thursday but was a full go Friday and Saturday.
For the Cowboys, Dez Bryant is probable and was a full participant Thursday through Saturday. On a defensive note, Dallas could be looking at a huge lift on defense as LB Sean Lee is listed as probable.

Bryant has been a decoy too many times this season, and while he leads the team with 52 catches for 749 yards on a team-high 90 targets, in four games he has caught four passes or fewer.
Bryant won't get into specifics, but did say the offense is developing ideas to get him the ball in coverage.
"You will see what happens," Bryant said after a short Monday practice following the bye week. "I've been seeing (double coverage) for a (while) now; we’ve been working on it."
No surprises here as teams with stud receivers often have to adapt to defenses. In an Oct. 27 game at Detroit, Bryant didn't get a pass thrown his way until late in the first half. In Bryant's last game, two weeks ago at New Orleans, he had just one catch for 44 yards.

Dez was targeted only twice and had just one catch for 44 yards. If you watched the broadcast, it showed several times how Bryant was doubled in the game. Now we see what kind of adjustments the Cowboys make to get Bryant the ball. He's still a WR1 play.
