Dez Bryant aiming for mid-October return to NFL

Dez Bryant says he is aiming for a mid-October return to the NFL.

Fantasy Impact

Bryant signed with the Saints mid-way through last season but tore his Achilles in his first practice. 10 months later he claims to feel "way better" than he did before. A return to the Saints is possible. It'll be interesting to see how many teams are interested in the former All-Pro.

Dez Bryant tears Achilles, done for year

Albert Breer of the MMQB confirms that Dez Bryant tore his Achilles at Friday’s practice.

Fantasy Impact

It’s what the Saints feared when Bryant went down with the injury. It’s a brutal blow for the veteran receiver who was practicing for just the second time since signing. New Orleans will likely be in the market for another receiver moving forward. Dez can be safely dropped in leagues where he was picked up. He has to be considered questionable for the start of 2019, and that’s if anyone even signs him.

Dez Bryant helped off practice field Friday, team fears torn achilles

New Saints wide receiver Dez Bryant was helped off the field at practice today after suffering what the team fears may be a torn Achilles, according to a report from Tom Pelissero. He is heading for an MRI now.

Fantasy Impact

This would be devastating news for a wide receiver who sat out the first half of the season while looking for the right team. He was not expected to play against the Bengals on Sunday, but the hope was that he could become a dangerous WR2 opposite Michael Thomas for the Saints. Now, if the initial fears of the Saints are correct, he will be done for the season and will head to free agency coming off of a serious injury at 30 years old.

Dez Bryant not expected to play Sunday vs. Bengals

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.

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.

Dez Bryant signs one-year deal with Saints

Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Saints are signing free agent wide receiver Dez Bryant to a one-year deal.

Fantasy Impact

He's back. It had gotten to the point where we didn't know if he'd ever play again and though the Saints are a high-scoring offense, it's not a situation to invest in. Outside of Michael Thomas, the remaining wide receivers on the team have totaled just 65 targets through eight games, or 8.1 targets per game. This does, however, likely knock Tre'Quan Smith down the totem pole. By signing a veteran like Bryant, it's them essentially saying they're not happy with where Smith is, though he'll still have a role with the team. The odd man out here is Cameron Meredith, who has seen just 10 targets all season. If you've been stashing Bryant and waiting for this moment, you should use it as your opportunity to sell. Keep in mind that Drew Brees hasn't thrown the ball more than 36 times since Mark Ingram came back. Bryant is just a WR4 at best.
