Dez Bryant returns to Cowboys practice, should be ready for fantasy owners in Week 9

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant (hip) was back on the practice field on Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant returned to practice on Thursday, a day after sitting out to rest his sore hip. Bryant hurt his hip after landing hard in the end zone on the near-miss touchdown catch at the end of last weekend's loss to the New York Giants.

Bryant finished the game with a season-high 110 yards on five catches, a week after being held to 14 yards. The Cowboys face the Atlanta Falcons in Week 9.

Fantasy Impact: Bryant's absence on Wednesday was suspected to be a rest day, so fantasy owners can move forward with Bryant in their lineups this week. Fantasy owners are hoping that last weekend's game is the start of a consistent streak for Bryant, who has had a few duds tossed in with a mostly solid fantasy season.

Bryant should be considered a strong No. 2 fantasy receiver this week against the Falcons.
