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