Dez Bryant and Tony Romo "have incredible chemistry"

Calvin Watkins, ESPN Dallas - [Full Article]

Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is just, well, it's hard to describe. He beat cornerback Morris Claiborne on four plays in the one-on-one passing drill. In the team period, Bryant caught a back-shoulder fade from Tony Romo against Brandon Carr. The pass hit Bryant in the cuff of the arm. It seemed as if Bryant saw the ball at the last minute and it just stuck to his body. Bryant and QB Tony Romo have incredible chemistry right now.

Wide receiver Miles Austin continues to struggle. He allowed Sean Lee to knock a pass out of his hands, the second consecutive day that's happened. Austin is running hard but is struggling a little bit when it comes to contested catches. Allen knocked a pass out of Austin's hands in Monday's session.

Fantasy Impact:

The biggest concern with Bryant is what off-the-field trouble he might get into, but he seems to be maturing to a point where that's not much of an issue any longer. His production after the Cowboys' Week 5 bye (5.9-93-1.0) was better than Calvin Johnson's season averages. He averaged 6.3 catches for 110 yards and 1.13 TDs in his last eight games. That projects to 101-1760-18 (or 284 fantasy points) over the course of a 16-game season. Since 2001, only Randy Moss (2003, 2007) and Calvin Johnson (2011) scored more than 260 FP in a season, so Bryant finished on a torrid pace.

A lower-back injury forced Cowboys WR Dez Bryant to leave the season-ending loss to the Washington Redskins, has kept him from running routes this offseason and might prevent him from being ready to fully participate in organized team activities this offseason.

Bryant, who needed a wheelchair to leave FedEx Field that night, said it took him a week to emotionally get over the loss to the Redskins. He has used that feeling as fuel this offseason, when he's been able to lift weights, run straight ahead and catch passes since the cast was removed from his hand.

Dez Bryant continues to mature

Jerry Jones and Jason Garrett, the two biggest faces with the Dallas Cowboys, praised the work of wide receiver Dez Bryant in two separate conversations last week at the NFL owners meetings.

And not just his on-the-field work, but what he's done off the field.

"He's just a really, really good young man," Garrett said. "He's made great strides over the last three years. We feel good about the progress he's made, not only as a player but as a person. We all know from the background from where he came; he's really grown a lot. I think the consistency that he's shown in his personal life spills over and the consistency he's shown as a player and his production he's shown on Sundays. I feel great about his progress and try to stay in touch with him, with all our players."

On Saturday, Bryant made a surprise appearance at a rally against domestic violence in Dallas.

"Is it dreaming to think that we can have a more effective Dez Bryant?" Jones said. "In the sense, Dez just gets better and has a better understanding of what he's doing when he's not getting the ball: How he's helping Miles (Austin) out. How he's helping (Dwayne) Harris out. How he's helping (James) Hanna and how he's helping (Jason) Witten. But he has a better understanding there. I'm looking forward to a more effective Dez Bryant, and everything I'm saying about his work is showing us that."

Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is having surgery on his finger on Tuesday.

Test results revealed no structural damage to the back of Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant.

In the regular-season finale against Washington, Bryant suffered a back injury in the second half and left FedEx Field in a wheelchair. Bryant, diagnosed with back spasms, was using crutches to walk on Tuesday.

The Cowboys' leading receiver also has a fractured left index finger, suffered with three weeks to play in the regular season, and nothing has been determined as to when he'll undergo surgery.

49ers place Mario Manningham on IR
Friday, December 28, 2012, 2:44pm

San Francisco 49ers - [Full Article]

The San Francisco 49ers have placed WR Mario Manningham on the Injured Reserve List. Manningham tore his left ACL and PCL.

Fantasy Impact:

Randy Moss will start against the Cardinals on Sunday.

49ers expect to have Vernon Davis back
Tuesday, December 25, 2012, 9:32pm

CSN Bay Area - [Full Article]

TE Vernon Davis should be available for the 49ers' regular-season finale against the Cardinals after sustaining a mild concussion Sunday night against the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact:

With Mario Manningham and Kyle Williams lost for the year, Randy Moss is now the team's WR2. Getting production from Davis will be key to a long 49ers playoff run, so perhaps look for them to try to start to get him involved this week.

Randy Moss now 49ers WR2
Tuesday, December 25, 2012, 9:26pm

CSN Bay Area - [Full Article]

Randy Moss, 35, a 14-year veteran, is now the 49ers' No. 2 wide receiver. In 2010, when he played for three teams, Moss caught 28 passes for 393 yards and five touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact:

This year, Moss has just 26 receptions for 406 yards and three touchdowns, and hasn't caught more than three balls in one game. Michael Crabtree, who is just 67 yards shy of becoming the 49ers' first 1,000-yard receiver since Terrell Owens in 2003, leads the 49ers with 77 receptions and seven touchdowns.
