Dez Bryant to get every chance to play for Cowboys, fantasy owners in Week 15

Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant (hand) will be given every chance to play in Week 15. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant attended practice on Thursday but will is not expected to attempt catching passes with his fractured left index finger until later in the week because of swelling. Coach Jason Garrett said (via The Fort Worth Star-Telegram) that no decision had been made on Bryant for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Bryant has visited this week with doctors and has decided to put off having surgery. Garrett said Thursday that the Cowboys would give Bryant every chance to play in Week 15. Garrett suggested that Bryant might be able to play because he caught a touchdown pass last weekend against the Cincinnati Bengals after breaking the finger.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners will have to remain patient with Bryant, who appears to be headed for a game-time decision in Week 15.

Bryant should be considered a fringe No. 1/2 fantasy receiver until his status for Sunday is determined.
