Dez Byrant injury update: Fantasy value up in the air with 'questionable' status

Patrick Smith

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is officially listed as questionable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is expected to start despite being officially listed as questionable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers. Bryant has been dealing with groin soreness. He appeared on the injury report Friday after missing practice.

He is expected to start on Sunday barring a set back, according to Ed Werder.

If Bryant can't play, Kevin Ogletree would take his place in the starting lineup. Bryant has more than 200 yards receiving and a pair of touchdowns in his last two games.

Fantasy Impact: This injury comes at a terrible time for Bryant, who is hitting his stride this season. He has been on fire the last two weeks, so hopefully this injury doesn't derail his momentum.

The Carolina Panthers present a friendly matchup for Bryant and the rest of the Cowboys' passing attack. They allow nearly 250 yards per game through the air.
