Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) didn’t practice all week but is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Bengals. It’s the same boat he was in last week when he ended up inactive. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport called Bryant “unlikely” to play. Dallas-Cincinnati doesn’t kick off until 4:25 pm ET, but Bryant should be on fantasy benches. His absence would leave Brice Butler, Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley as the Cowboys’ top 3 WRs.

Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the 49ers. The team has seemingly been over-optimistic about Bryant's status. There's a good chance he misses multiple games with the hairline fracture in his knee. Terrance Williams and Brice Butler will serve as Dallas' outside WRs this weekend, with Cole Beasley in the slot. Beasley and TE Jason Witten are the best target bets.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) is not expected to play against the 49ers on Sunday. He's likely looking at a multi-week absence. We've removed Bryant from the Week 4 Rankings, lowered QB Dak Prescott and given bumps up to Cole Beasley, Terrance Williams and Jason Witten.

Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot, ankle) didn't practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bills.  Dallas might be ready to shut its star down for the year.  WR Cole Beasley (knee, illness) is questionable for Week 16.  That leaves Terrance Williams as Dallas' likely top WR, but he'd be a desperation fantasy play.

Cowboys HC Jason Garrett has named QB Kellen Moore the starter for Sunday's game against the Bills.  Stepping in for QB Matt Cassel on Saturday night, Moore completed 15 of 25 passes for 158 yards, 1 TD and 3 INTs.  He's obviously not a fantasy option.  More relevant: Moore targeted WR Dez Bryant 7 times (4 catches, 1 TD), Jason Witten 4 times (4 catches) and Cole Beasley 7 times (3 catches).

Cowboys WR Dez Bryant will undergo foot surgery on Tuesday, according to ESPN's Todd Archer.  He'll have a screw inserted to repair a break in his 5th metatarsal.  That's the long bone of the pinkie toe.  Dallas is pegging Bryant's rehab timeline at 4-6 weeks, but that might be optimistic.  Dr. David Chao, a former NFL head team physician, believes that a "more realistic estimate might be 6-8 weeks."  Bryant owners shouldn't be counting on Bryant before the Cowboys come out of their Week 6 bye.  Terrance Williams will step in as Dallas' #1 WR while Bryant is out, making him a weekly WR3 with upside.  Cole Beasley, Jason Witten and Lance Dunbar should also see targets boosts.

The Cowboys re-signed WR Cole Beasley to a 4-year deal worth $13.6 million.  It's a fair deal for a guy who has emerged as a reliable short-range, slot receiver.  Beasley has totaled 76 catches on 104 targets (73% catch rate) over the past 2 seasons.  He's averaged just 10.4 yards per catch, though, and scored only 6 TDs.  Beasley is much more valuable to the Cowboys than he is to fantasy teams.

Cowboys WRs coach Derek Dooley says Cole Beasley will play an expanded role this season.  “We’re moving him around a little bit. He’s going to have to play some outside,” Dooley said. “But he’s really expanded his route inventory, so because of that, he’s going to be a much better player than he was last year. And he was really valuable to us last year.”  Beasley hauled in an impressive 75% of his targets in 2013 and committed just 1 drop, according to Pro Football Focus.  But he averaged just 9.4 yards per catch with 2 TDs.  And he ran 92.5% of his routes from the slot.  We're skeptical that the 5'8, 177-pounder can make an impact on the outside.  And as the 4th or 5th option in the passing game, Beasley will struggle for consistent production.  He's just a late-round option in PPR fantasy leagues.
