Dez Bryant questionable for Sunday, putting fantasy value in jeopardy

Jeff Gross

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is questionable for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers due to a groin strain. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is questionable for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers due to a groin strain, according to ESPN Dallas. Bryant was held out of Friday's practice after practicing all week. He is believed to have suffered the injury at some point on Friday.

If Bryant were to miss the game, Kevin Ogletree would start in his place opposite Miles Austin, who continues to be bothered by a nagging hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact: This injury could not come at a worse time for Dez Bryant, who may be playing the best football of his career recently. After a rare, 100-yard game before the bye week, Bryant came out and scored two touchdowns last week against the Baltimore Ravens.

Bryant has the upside to be a top ten fantasy wide receiver going forward, provided he can stay healthy. There is stil a shot he plays on Sunday, so don't pull him from your fantasy lineup just yet. If he manages to suit up, the Cowboys' passing attack has an excellent matchup against the Carolina Panthers.
