Dez Bryant says broken finger is 'fine,' expects to play for fantasy owners in Week 16

Dez Bryant said his broken index finger felt fine after Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant said his broken index finger felt fine after Sunday's victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Bryant had four catches for 59 yards and a touchdown for Dallas, which won its third straight.

Bryant played on Sunday while wearing a splint to protect his finger. After the game, Bryant said he would be ready to play in Week 16 against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Impact: Bryant has scored eight touchdowns since Week 10 and has been one of the top fantasy wide receivers over that stretch. If he played on Sunday, there's no reason for fantasy owners to take him out of the lineup in Week 16 against the Saints.

Bryant should be considered a No. 1 fantasy wide receiver against New Orleans.
