An MRI has revealed that Dez Bryant suffered a hairline fracture in his knee during Week 3’s Sunday Night matchup against the Chicago Bears. The good news is that Bryant returned in that game after sustaining the injury and caught a TD salvaging his night for fantasy owners with a 3/40/1 line. The bad news is that this was against a battered Chicago Bears defense missing key players on each level their defense including the secondary; furthermore Bryant’s performance in Week 3 accounted for a third of his statistical production thru three weeks. It’s unclear whether or not Bryant will miss any time but his effectiveness or lack thereof to this point is almost certain to continue.
Conventional wisdom suggests Terrance Williams can’t be trusted, more Cole Beasley and an even greater workload for Ezekiel Elliott who is currently on pace for 379 carries.
