Dak Prescott said his "chemistry" with Dez Bryant "has grown" this offseason.
"He's been a guy that his ears are wide open, wanting to know what I'm thinking," Prescott said. "It's just been back and forth of just talking and doing it out there on the field and it's only growing." The connection was on display in the second preseason game, with Dez hauling in two passes for 55 yards and an impressive touchdown. A yearly threat for double-digit scores, Dez is a back-end WR1.

Dez Bryant caught both of his targets for 55 yards and a touchdown in Saturday’s preseason game.

Bryant caught a 23-yard pass on the first play of the game in which he threw down a defender after the reception. He then caught a 32-yard touchdown reception over Vontae Davis on a deep back shoulder target that was vintage Bryant. Bryant caught 10 touchdowns over his final 11 full games a year ago including the postseason. Even with a tough opening schedule over the opening three weeks of the regular season, Bryant remains a low-end WR1 for the season since he carries so much touchdown upside.

Dez Bryant missed the Cowboys' conditioning test on Friday.

Bryant showed up to training camp three hours late. He's reportedly dealing with a sinus infection and headaches, but is otherwise healthy. This should be a non-issue moving forward.
Jul 21 - 5:30 PM

Dez Bryant feels 100 percent healthy at OTAs after battling foot, ankle, back, and knee injuries the past two seasons.

Bryant is enjoying a drama-free offseason after missing all of the 2015 spring due to a franchise-tag holdout, then undergoing multiple lower-leg surgeries early in 2016. "There have been times where I [am] seriously injured but I still go," Bryant explained. "The way that I feel now, I'm not dealing with really anything. I feel damn good. I know once I'm 100 percent, I'm hard to deal with." Bryant averaged 80.7 yards and one touchdown per game over the final eight weeks last year.
May 31 - 9:35 PM

Dez Bryant nabbed nine-of-12 targets for a season-high 132 yards and two touchdowns Sunday in the Cowboys' Divisional Round loss to the Packers.

The Cowboys couldn’t fend off Green Bay in the most dramatic game we’ve seen in ages, but Bryant did everything that was asked of him and then some on Sunday. Dallas looked lethargic out of the gate but Bryant changed the momentum quickly by dusting Ladarius Gunter for a 40-yard touchdown late in the first half. Bryant wasn’t done victimizing Gunter, beating him again for a seven-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Dez got off to a relatively slow start this year while battling injuries but finished strong with seven touchdowns over his last eight games. The 28-year-old has re-established himself as an elite WR1 in fantasy.
Jan 15 - 8:54 PM

Dez Bryant was held without a catch on one target Week 17 against the Eagles.

Bryant played more than Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott, but he did not see much if any action in the second half. Bryant was able to draw a long defensive pass interference to set up Tony Romo's touchdown, but that was his only contribution of the game. He will be much more involved when the Cowboys open their playoffs in the Divisional Round.
Jan 1 - 3:37 PM

Dez Bryant caught 4-of-5 targets for 70 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 16 win over the Lions on Monday night.

He also threw a 10-yard touchdown to Jason Witten, the first touchdown pass of Bryant's career. On the play, Dak Prescott flipped it to Bryant, who looked like he was going to run it on a reverse, but the lefty threw it to a wide-open Witten in the end zone. Bryant's two touchdown catches were also beauties. The first was a one-handed, 25-yard grab with CB Johnson Bademosi draped all over him. The second was a 19-yard hookup on a back-shoulder bullet in the fourth quarter. After the second touchdown, Bryant was done for the night with the Cowboys up by 21. Bryant may not play much more than a series or two in the meaningless Week 17 finale at the Eagles.

Dez Bryant (back) is active for Week 16 against the Lions.

He was listed questionable but was never in danger of sitting out. With Lions top CB Darius Slay (hamstring) out, Bryant is in a wonderful spot. Inactive for the Cowboys are QB Mark Sanchez, RB Alfred Morris, CB Morris Claiborne, LB Justin Durant, DE DeMarcus Lawrence, DT Cedric Thornton, and DT Tyrone Crawford. DE Randy Gregory is active for the first time this year.
Mon, Dec 26, 2016 07:15:00 PM

Dez Bryant caught 8-of-10 passes for 82 yards in Week 15 against the Bucs.

The Cowboys made a point to get Bryant involved early, with five of his catches coming in the first half. He dropped his only end-zone target, but it was a nice rebound after he was held to one catch last week. Bryant didn't look limited despite coming into the game questionable with a back injury. He'll be a WR1 for Week 16 against Detroit.
Mon, Dec 19, 2016 12:07:00 AM

Dez Bryant (back) is active for Week 15 against the Bucs.

Bryant was a late addition to the injury report but there was never much concern over his status. With Darren McFadden back, Alfred Morris is a healthy scratch as expected. Also inactive for the Cowboys are SS J.J. Wilcox, QB Mark Sanchez, CB Morris Claiborne, LB Mark Nzeocha, DE DeMarcus Lawrence, and DL Cedric Thornton

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Dez Bryant (back) will play Sunday night against the Bucs.

Rapoport says the back injury "won't affect him." There was never much concern about his status, but it is still good to get confirmation. Bryant is a solid WR1.

Dez Bryant (back) is questionable for Week 15 against the Buccaneers.

Bryant was added to the injury report on Thursday but there's little concern about his status for Sunday. He's coming off arguably his worst game of the season but fantasy owners shouldn't hold that against him in a prime bounce-back spot at home. Dez is No. 5 in RotoPat's Week 15 wide receiver rankings.
Fri, Dec 16, 2016 03:44:00 PM

Dez Bryant was added to the Cowboys' injury report on Thursday, getting in a limited session with a back issue.

Bryant's back has acted up a few times in recent weeks, but it hasn't affected him on Sundays. He should be good to go in a bounce-back spot against the Bucs.
Thu, Dec 15, 2016 04:08:00 PM

Dez Bryant caught 1-of-9 targets for 10 yards in Week 14 against the Giants.

Bryant was targeted on both of Dak Prescott’s interceptions. He had a game-ending fumble on his only catch of the night. Bryant had at least 70 yards or a touchdown in his last four games. He’s a good bet to rebound in Week 15 against the Bucs.
Sun, Dec 11, 2016 11:48:00 PM

Dez Bryant caught 4-of-6 targets for 84 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 13 win over the Vikings.

Bryant almost scored a 57-yard touchdown in the second quarter, but couldn't quite get to the goal line. He fell corralling a just-south-of-perfect pass from Dak Prescott. Bryant was wide open after burning S Harrison Smith. Bryant's score was an eight-yarder where the Vikings confusingly gave him a massive cushion. Looking more on the same page with Dak Prescott each week, Bryant is averaging 88 yards over his past four games. He'll be a WR1 against Janoris Jenkins and the Giants next Sunday.
