Dez Bryant misses practice, fantasy value solid for Week 9

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant (hip) missed practice on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was held out of practice on Wednesday because of his sore hip. Bryant is coming off a five-catch, 110-yard effort against the New York Giants and was fingertips away from scoring a go-ahead touchdown in the closing seconds.

Bryant came down hard in the end zone on his right hip on that play, but the Cowboys have said they didn't think the injury was too severe. Dallas plays the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: This is likely just a rest day for Bryant, who has turned in several strong fantasy games this season. Sunday's was just inches away from being even better but 110 yards was a season-high for Bryant and nothing for fantasy owners to be too upset about.

Monitor injury reports as the week goes along but Bryant should be ready for Sunday. He is a strong No. 2 fantasy receiver in most formats.
