Dez Bryant and Miles Austin are full participants in Monday's practice. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys WRs Dez Bryant (knee) and Miles Austin (hamstring) are both full participants in practice Monday, reports the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Fantasy Impact: Bryant missed the final preseason game with patella tendinitis, but is expected to be 100% for Wednesday's opener against the New York Giants. With Jason Witten's status still up in the air, look for Bryant to be Tony Romo's No. 1 option and the Cowboys' best fantasy play this week.

Austin is less of a sure thing, having missed the entire preseason and most of training camp with a sprained hamstring. Monday is his third straight practice and he's still probable for Wednesday, but hammies are tricky and easily re-aggravated. Consider him day-to-day for now, don't count on him to carry your roster this week, and we'll continue to monitor the situation.
