WR Dez Bryant has finally found a home, inking a 1-year deal with the Saints. The 30-year-old looked like a player in decline last season, averaging a career-low 12.1 yards per catch. He seems best-suited as a possession receiver at this point, which is the role he might be stepping into with the Saints. Bryant would look good as a big slot WR between Michael Thomas and Tre'Quan Smith. From a fantasy perspective, Bryant figures to duke it out for targets with Smith behind top dogs Thomas and Alvin Kamara. Dez is worth adding in most fantasy leagues, but we'd consider him just a WR4 for now. We'll see how quickly he can settle into the offense. Smith's value takes a considerable hit with Bryant's arrival.
An MRI confirmed that Saints WR Dez Bryant tore his Achilles in Friday's practice. He's done for the season just a day after signing with New Orleans. Bryant turned 30 a few days ago and was already in decline prior to this injury. He faces a tough road to re-emerge as a real-life and fantasy football asset. The Saints will move forward with WRs Michael Thomas, Tre'Quan Smith and Austin Carr.
Saints WR Dez Bryant suffered an injury in Friday's practice that the team believes is a torn Achilles, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. That'd end Bryant's 2018 campaign before it ever started -- and might put an end to his career. We'll update his status when we learn more.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says it'd be "incredibly ambitious" to expect Saints WR Dez Bryant to play against the Bengals this weekend. Bryant will officially sign on Thursday, giving him just 2 days to practice with his new team. So a Week 11 debut in a big game against the Eagles seems more likely. Michael Thomas, Tre'Quan Smith and Austin Carr figure to serve as New Orleans' top 3 WRs in Cincinnati on Sunday.
The Cowboys are expected to release WR Dez Bryant, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter and Todd Archer. We've heard whispers about this for a while now. Dallas reportedly wants Bryant to take a pay cut from the $12.5 million he's scheduled to earn this year and next -- and the mercurial WR evidently isn't willing to oblige. The 2 sides are meeting today, but a divorce is expected "barring an unexpected last-minute change of heart," Schefter tweets. Bryant's production has crated since 3-straight seasons of 1,200+ yards from 2012 to 2014. Over the past 3 years, he's totaled just 150 catches for 2,035 yards and 17 TDs across 38 appearances. He seemingly struggled to get on the same page as QB Dak Prescott, corralling just 52.2% of his targets over the last 2 seasons. Bryant is still just 29, so there's certainly a chance he bounces back in 2018. We'll see where he lands before assessing his fantasy value. The Cowboys, meanwhile, are left with Terrance Williams, Allen Hurns and Cole Beasley atop their WR depth chart. They figure to be in the market for a rookie WR or 2.
Update: They did.
Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) isn’t listed on the final Week 17 injury report. He was sidelined on Thursday but returned to a full practice on Friday. Bryant figures to play in Sunday’s meaningless finale against the Eagles, although Dallas could still limit his snaps. Bryant has been playing through knee tendonitis for the past couple of months.
