Dez Bryant injury: Cowboys WR probable, likely to play for fantasy owners

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is probable for Week 10. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is listed as probable for the team's Week 10 matchup against the New Orleans Saints. Bryant is dealing with a back injury of unknown severity, but told reporters on Friday that he feels good and would be playing on Sunday.

There has been talk of Bryant's injury potentially being as serious as a bulging or herniated disc, but those are rumors at this point. Even against a team as tough as the Saints, the Cowboys likely wouldn't risk playing Bryant if there was such a serious risk of further injury.

Bryant has been one of the top fantasy receivers this season. He's caught 51 passes for 705 yards with eight touchdowns. He's a No. 1 receiver and will be crucial in helping Tony Romo and the Cowboys keep up with Drew Brees and the Saints.

Fantasy Impact: Bryant, as noted, is incredibly effective as a fantasy receiver this season. He is a must-start any time he plays, and it sounds an awful lot like he's going to play, unless the Cowboys are trying to deceive the Saints. That might actually be something that occurs, so still keep an eye on the inactives list, but for now, he's a must-start.
