Week 3 Fantasy Football: Should You Sit Or Start Dez Bryant?

Dallas Cowboys sophomore sensation Dez Bryant returned to practice on Friday after missing out earlier in the week due to a thigh injury. He is currently listed as questionable for the Cowboys' game against the Washington Redskins on Monday night, and therefore still remains a risky fantasy football option.

The last time these two teams met in Dallas, Bryant missed the game due to injury. But in an earlier meeting at FedEx Field, Bryant caught eight passes - one off his season high. As the only good healthy option for Tony Romo at the wide receiver position (since Miles Austin is out), Bryant will get lots of targets, and keep in mind that DeAngelo Hall has given up big plays to both No. 1 wide receivers that he's faced so far, including a 73-yard touchdown to Larry Fitzgerald last week.

Bryant is a risky fantasy play, especially since the Cowboys don't play until Monday so you won't have a chance to remove him from your lineup if his injury takes a turn for the worse. Keep your eyes peeled for reports later today and tomorrow, because if he's likely to play, he could still be worth the risk.
