Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is expected to play Week 8, barring a setback. This is according to Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones. Bryant has had a very strong week of practice and says “hell yeah” he’s playing. “Of course, hell yeah, I’m playing,” Bryant said. “If I play, I’m not thinking about nothing. I’m playing. Dez is Dez out there. So we’re going to just see.”
FANTASY ANALYSIS: It definitely sounds like Bryant is going to be out there. Fantasy owners are dying to get this guy back in their lineups. He was a first-round pick in the vast majority of leagues and will be a huge boost for his owners. As long as he’s active he’s a must-start. Don’t get nervous and worry about rust. If he plays, you play him. He is not expected to be on a snap count this week if he plays.
