New Saints wide receiver Dez Bryant is not expected to play in Sunday's game against the Bengals, according to a report from Tom Pelissero. The team wants him to drop weight, form chemistry with Drew Brees, and have more time to learn the offense. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Pelissero adds that a more realistic debut for Bryant could be the following week against the Philadelphia Eagles. While he will likely be eased into the offense, which could give fantasy owners with a tough decision to make, a debut against a banged up Philadelphia secondary at home is an attractive proposition.
