Fantasy Impact:

McFadden is active for this week but it's expected that Morris gets the start and a bulk of the work with Smith getting third-down action. The RBs workload will be worth monitoring this week. Meanwhile Bryant is a go after injuring his ankle last week.

Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee, ankle, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 10. Bryant was “moving well” at Friday’s practice and said earlier in the week that he will play. If he’s out, Terrance Williams, Brice Butler and Cole Beasley would all get a bump. The Cowboys play in the late round of games, so owners should have a Plan B handy just in case.

Source: WR Dez Bryant's (knee, ankle) injuries not serious

Cowboys WR Dez Bryant’s ankle, which caused him to leave Sunday’s win over the Chiefs, is described as “not serious,” source said.

Fantasy Impact:

Bryant is considered day-to-day. A knee injury was also mentioned by HC Jason Garrett. This update still seems to fall right in line with what we all saw during the broadcast of the game: Bryant was seen jogging and trying to work the ankle/knee on the sidelines, but he didn't appear all that limited to the naked eye. With the game pretty much in hand at that point, perhaps there wasn't any urgency to get Bryant back on the field, so that could have played into the team's decision to keep him out.

Dez Bryant left the game in the fourth quarter after taking a hit, and was later ruled questionable to return due to an ankle injury.

Fantasy Impact:

Bryant never did return, but really didn't have to as the Cowboys had pretty much put the game away. He was seen jogging on the sideline, which could at least be a good sign for his status heading into next week, but it will have to be monitored. The Cowboys play a late afternoon game at Atlanta in Week 10.

Prescott: 'Chemistry has grown' with WR Dez Bryant

Sunday, August 20, 2017, 11:52am

Dallas News - [Full Article]

It didn't take long for Dak Prescott and Dez Bryant to find a rhythm in Saturday night's 24-19 preseason win over the Indianapolis Colts.

Prescott targeted the Pro Bowl receiver on his first pass play. First and 10 from Dallas' own five, Prescott found Bryant for an eight-yard strike that was quickly turned into 23 yards after breaking a tackle.

"He has been healthy all offseason, so that chemistry has grown," Prescott said. "He's been a guy that his ears are wide open, wanting to know what I'm thinking, and I want to know what he's thinking. It's just been back and forth of just talking and doing it out there on the field and it's only growing."

Fantasy Impact:

Prescott added, "it's the best Dez has been." He also thought Bryant has been the most improved player so far this season. This obviously could be very key this season for both players and fantasy owners, especially with RB Ezekiel Elliott out because of a suspension.

Cowboys WR Dez Bryant believes offseason work will lead to big year

Tuesday, July 25, 2017, 12:51pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Dez Bryant's belief is that the work he did this offseason will help him get to the form he had in 2014 when he caught 88 passes for 1,320 yards and led the NFL in touchdown catches with 16.

Leading into the 2015 season, he missed the entire offseason in a contract dispute after the Cowboys placed the franchise tag on him. Leading into 2016, he was limited in his offseason work because of a second foot surgery.

Fantasy Impact:

As the story said, he had 31 catches for 401 yards and three touchdowns in 2015. He had 50 catches for 796 yards and eight touchdowns last season. Now there are questions as to whether he remains one of the league's elite receivers. Many will mention Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham Jr., Julio Jones and others before they get to Bryant, and those are similar names usually ahead of Bryant in the fantasy world too.

Fantasy Impact:

This was fully expected all day despite the Cowboys clinching the top seed and a first round bye leaving this a meaningless game in Week 16. Dallas HC Jason Garrett said players would get a normal workload tonight against the Lions. That could perhaps change should the game get out of hand, but for now Bryant, Prescott and Elliott are solid starts.
