2016 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Aug-04-2016 by Shawn Childs


Update (7/22): The latest report has Dez Bryant ready for full action at the start of training camp.

Dez crushed Fantasy owners in 2015 due to a broken bone in his right foot that required surgery plus his subpar play over eight games when he returns to the starting lineup. Over nine games, Bryant caught 31 passes for 401 yards and three TDs on 72 targets. He had his lowest catch rate (43.1) of his career thanks to weak QB play after Romo went down with an injury and lack of explosion as a result of his foot issue. Dez only had one game with over 100 yards receiving while never catching over five passes in any game. His season ended in Week 16 with a recurring foot injury. Bryant had a second surgery on his right foot in early January, which was a bone graft, plus a cleanup issue with his ankle to remove a bone spur. In early June, Dez was given clearance to step up his offseason work. This puts him on track to be ready for the start of training camp. In his career, Bryant has three years with over 1200 yards receiving while averaging 91 catches in those three seasons with 41 TDs in 46 games. Dez is a special player, but his opportunity is a step below the elite WRs in the game due to Dallas' offensive structure. He'll offer an edge in TDs with an outside chance at 100 catches for 1300+ yards. His targets will fall 30 to 50 below the top WRs in the game.

2016 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
1.08 Brad Kruse - Picking from the 8 spot provided a difficult choice, but I feel Bryant will be past his injury issue and should return to being a player who averaged over 300 points per season in the three years prior.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
1.07 Scout Fantasy - Matt De Lima - This is probably the earliest I would take Dez, but it's easy to forget how great he can be with a healthy Tony Romo. Dez has No. 1 player in all of Fantasy Football potential.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
1.07 Scout Fantasy - Armando Marsal - Romo and Bryant are both expected to be fully healthy to start the season. I like the chances for a bounce back year out of Bryant.
