2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Jun-21-2015 by Shawn Childs

The Cowboys placed their bet on Bryant over Murray as the face of the franchise going forward, which is a wise more. Bryant led the league with 16 receiving touchdowns. He amassed 88 catches in 136 targets for 1,320 yards. Dez has a three-year average of 91 catches, 1,311.66 yards and 13.6 scores. Although he topped the 100-yard mark only four times last season, he scored in 11 games. His consistency led to him notching at least 10 Fantasy points in every game after Week 1 and finishing as Fantasy's No. 4 WR. Dez is a great player with impact upside, but his opportunity is limited by the Cowboys' run-centric offense. His ceiling is 100-plus catches for more than 1,500 yards and 15 scores. His floor is 90-1,350-10. He is a rock-solid start to any Fantasy team.

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant

Latest Update

Jul-03-15 The Cowboys believe WR Dez Bryant is bluffing about holdout

When Dez Bryant's agent met with the Cowboys last week, no progress was made. The Cowboys are not willing to budge from the long-term off they had already offered. Dallas believes that Bryant is bluffing and will not sit out any regular season games despite his threats. There are two main reasons the Cowboys believe Bryant will be playing Week 1. The first reason is because the team is reportedly aware of financial issues the star wideout is having and believes he can't afford to miss game checks. Also, the Cowboys plan to use his loyalty to his teammates against him. They think that he will not be willing to let his teammates down.

Fantasy Analysis:

This is why you should never fault a professional athlete for getting as much money as possible when they have the leverage. This is a business and the teams are no more loyal than the players. This is just another reminder of that. Sadly, the Cowboys are probably right, it's very unlikely Bryant sits out any regular season games and he'll probably be forced to play on the franchise tag. One way or the other he's going to get his money eventually. He's one of the best receivers in the league and is a monster in the red zone. He's currently being drafted as the WR3, it's hard to argue with that. I believe Antonio Bryant is the clear top wideout and the next five guys are pretty much interchangeable.

1.07 Bluefish Blitz - At this point in July, I feel like there's a top 6, then a tier drop. Dez has a tough SOS, but thanks to a lousy defense should be in a lot of shootouts
