Dez appears to finally be past the off-the-field issues, but now comes with loads of injury concerns. If he can stay healthy, there may not be a better red zone receiver in football, although Gronk and OBJ could pose a strong argument. Another large factor is that Romo might not be able to stay healthy enough to boost Bryant's stats. There are too many question marks here to waste an early 2nd round pick on him.

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant told the media that he feels "unstoppable" on the field on Sunday just one week after experiencing concussion-like symptoms during practice. "I'm going to catch anything that's thrown to me," Bryant said via the Dallas Morning News. (Source: Dallas Morning News)

Fantasy Impact: Despite the fact that Tony Romo will reportedly be sidelined until mid-season, Bryant should remain a WR1 in the upcoming fantasy football campaign. Bryant had already showcased his rapport with Dak Prescott and caught a pair of touchdowns from the rookie in the preseason, which could translate into regular season play. The Cowboys open the 2016 regular season against a Giants defense that spent a lot of money in free agency to upgrade. However, it could take some time for the unit to gel together which bodes well for Bryant'sstatistical outlook for Week 1.

Fantasy Impact: Bryant's return to practice couldn't have come soon enough as the Cowboys just learned that Tony Romo will miss half of the year with a back injury and Dak Prescott will enter the 2016 season as the starter. Bryant appears to have a rapport with Prescott but will need all of the offseason work he can get with the rookie to prepare for the regular season that is roughy two weeks away. Bryant remains a WR1 in the upcoming fantasy football campaign despite the loss of Romo.

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (concussion) was inactive against the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact: Bryant suffered a concussion in practice earlier in the week and has been sidelined due to the ailment ever since. Although there are reports that Bryant will not play in the preseason finale against the Texans, the head injury is thought to be minor. Bryant should be considered a full-go for Week 1 of the regular season against the Giants.

The fantasy football community is a fickle bunch. I say that with love, but if you've ever read anything I've written before, you know I call it as I see it. We hate the unknown and love dwelling on the past. We dislike quarterbacks that aren't flashy or are conservative by nature and any and all injuries are red flags to us.

Let's not forget that he was a top 5 fantasy wideout for three straight seasons before QB Romo and Dez both were hit hard by the injury bug in '15 - only 27 years old, he should have at least a few more big seasons ahead

Health is the key. If Dez is Dez, he's going to play with a chip on his shoulder after an awful 2015 run.
