The Cowboys are concerned by Dez Bryant's hip injury going into Sunday night's game against the Falcons. We break down the fantasy implications.
The Dallas Cowboys reportedly have "major concerns" over Dez Bryant's hip injury as the team prepares for Sunday night's game against the Atlanta Falcons, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Bryant was listed as questionable after practicing in a limited fashion Friday. He was forced to sit Wednesday and Thursday.
Outside of a Week 7 dud, Bryant has been playing some of his best football of the season in recent weeks. He has had at least 95 yards receiving in three of his last four games. Bryant had a season-high 110 yards receiving last week against the New York Giants.
Fantasy Impact: Sunday's news puts fantasy owners in a major bind. Unfortunately, because the Cowboys play so late, any potential replacement options will have already played, rendering them unusable if Bryant is forced to sit at game time.
Ian Rapoport called Bryant a true game-time decision. With the first games kicking off at 1:00 p.m. ET, owners will have to decide quickly if they are going to roll with Bryant in their starting lineups this week. If you own him, that decision depends entirely on your confidence in your bench, and how desperate you are for a win.
