Coming out of Sunday night’s win over the Giants, Dez Bryant was diagnosed with a sprained left foot. This provided fantasy owners with even more panic than his measley line of 4/22/0. Granted, Bryant was the victim of double-teams for a majority of the night.
Bryant’s MRI revealed a mild foot sprain and nothing more, a sigh of relief for owners who most likely acquired his services between picks 10 and 18 in this year’s draft. Despite a matchup with one of the NFL’s best secondaries next week in Kansas City, owners should feel comfortable deploying Dez. No stranger to warding off various injuries when taking the field, Dez will almost certainly improve upon a forgettable opener.
