Dez Bryant practices Friday, should play; is still a solid fantasy option

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant practiced on Friday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant practiced on Friday, and was reportedly "moving a lot better" than he was on Thursday, according to Clarence Hill of the Star Telegram. Bryant is dealing with a minor back injury suffered late in the team's Week 2 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Bryant did not practice on Wednesday, but he did participate in limited fashion on Thursday. His practice on Friday was somewhere beyond what you'd usually call "limited" but it wouldn't be surprising to see him listed as such on the official injury report.

It seems likely that Bryant has just been taking it slow with the back injury and that he'll be ready to go against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Bryant is a desirable fantasy option, and if he's expected to play, then he should be started. The Rams are struggling big time with their secondary, and Bryant should see a full workload provided there are no setbacks for his back injury. None are expected, so be sure he's starting, fantasy owners.
