Dez Bryant injury: Limited practice but fantasy owners should be able to start him this week

US PRESSWIRE

The Cowboys leading receiver will play through a broken finger for as long as he has to. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant (finger) was limited in practice on Thursday. Bryant will likely play through his broken finger for as long as the Cowboys are in the playoff race in the NFC East and Wild Card spots.

Bryant is enjoying a career-year, catching 79 passes for 1,087 yards and 10 touchdowns in fourteen games. Bryant has caught a touchdown in six straight games. The Cowboys take on the New Orleans Saints in Week 16.

Fantasy Take: Bryant has played through a lot of injuries and ailments this season, it seems, so count on him to be there and show up big time against a bad New Orleans defense. He should rank in the top 10 fantasy plays at WR in championship week.
