Dez Bryant injury update: Foot issue shouldn't keep him out, remains must-start in fantasy

Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant (foot) is listed as probable to face the Chiefs on Sunday. He was a full participant in practice all week and will play.

He had an underwhelming start to his season, catching four of his eight targets for just 22 yards. Jason Witten exploded with eight catches and two TDs while Miles Austin shockingly brought in 10 balls. Dez was a monster down the stretch in the second half of the 2012 season, finishing with 1,382 yards and 12 scores.

Fantasy impact: He had a massive preseason and to put it simply, if you're already worried about Dez after just one week, then maybe fantasy football is not for you. Players go through bad games and the Giants doubled him for most of the game. The plan didn't really work for them since the Cowboys have two other terrific options, so don't expect teams to copy that blueprint. Expect Dez to have a field day against the Chiefs against cornerbacks Brandon Flowers and Dunta Robinson.
