Dez Bryant is still up in the air for Monday night. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is questionable for Monday night's preseason game against the Oakland Raiders with a hamstring ailment, ESPN Dallas reports.

Analysis: Dez Bryant is one of the most talented receivers in the league and being slowed down by a meddlesome injury like a hammy pull can hurt his fantasy value. Most owners certainly won't forget the drama Andre Johnson endured with his hamstring, so the Oklahoma State Cowboy could slip in fantasy drafts. However, the high-octane offense of the Cowboys favors Bryant and he has the upside to be one of fantasy's top options at receiver. Not to mention Miles Austin has dealt with injury problems of his own and Bryant could lead the team in targets. Dez is currently the 13th receiver off the board in mocks and that could be a huge bargain. It wouldn't be a bad thing to have him as your WR1.
