New Orleans Saints WR Dez Bryant is expected to sit out the Week 10 game against the Cincinnati Bengals, according to a report Friday, Nov. 9. The Saints would like to see Bryant lose some weight and become more comfortable with the offense.
Huddle Up: Not a real surprise as Bryant hasn't played in a NFL game since Dec. 31 and has had only two practices with his new team. In the meantime, the red-hot Saints will continue to roll with elite WR1 Michael Thomas and rookie flex consideration Tre'Quan Smith as their only usable fantasy wideouts.

New Orleans Saints WR Dez Bryant has begun work with his new team after signing Tuesday, Nov. 6, but head coach Sean Payton declined to commit to Bryant playing in Week 10. 'We'll see,' Payton said on a media conference call Thursday, Nov. 8. 'It would be hard for me to comment not having had a practice yet. But we'll take a peek and see how he does today and tomorrow, and then we'll fill you in Sunday.'
Huddle Up: If you took a flier on Dez after his signing this week with one of the league's most prolific offenses, you'll want to wait to to see him in a game or two before you insert him into your lineup.

the New Orleans Saints Wednesday, Nov. 7. Financial terms weren't

worth stashing for now.

Free-agent WR Dez Bryant (Cowboys) tweeted on Tuesday, Oct. 2, that he prefers to return to the Dallas Cowboys but would be open to playing elsewhere if that wasn't an option. According to Ed Werder, however, the team is not interested in re-signing Bryant.
Huddle Up: Four weeks in and Bryant remains on the open market even as injuries pop up and players underperform. It's unclear when Bryant will land another job, but if you've been stashing him on your reserve roster it's time to seriously consider dropping him and taking a flier on someone else.
