Dez Bryant said in a post-practice interview, "Truthfully, to be honest, I feel like, man, I'm still rising." The fifth year wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys is entering a contract year and will be working as hard as ever to keep on improving himself.

In an offense that could very rarely produce at a consistent level in 2013, Bryant was the lone star. FANTASY ANALYSIS: The Cowboys struggled to get Bryant the ball in...

When asked whether he was concerned by the lack of a new deal, Bryant replied "I'm just going to keep on working." FANTASY ANALYSIS: To take a contrarian stance here: this is good news for Dez Bryant's fantasy value. Yes, typically when a...

Jimmy Graham deal Dez Bryant's baseline?

IRVING, Texas -- Jimmy Graham was unable to declare himself a wide receiver in an arbitration case, but the New Orleans Saints tight end did fairly well with his reported four-year, $40 million deal that includes $21 million guaranteed. As the Dallas Cowboys and Dez Bryant look for ways to come to an agreement on a long-term deal so they can avoid any franchise-tag hassle next offseason, can Graham’s deal be something of a barometer for Bryant?

Could The Cowboys Help Josh Gordon?

The NFL's leading receiver from 2013 is having a great deal off field troubles, could the Cowboys help? When the Cowboys placed a third-round bid in the 2012 supplemental draft on a talented, but troubled wide receiver out of Baylor, which was overridden by the Browns second-round claim, they surely had a vision for the player. Putting to use the Player Development Department at Valley Ranch, directed by Dave Wansley, with the help of consultant Calvin Hill, and mental health consultant, Dr. Jacqueline Stephens, the Cowboys probably saw a similar path taken by players like Dez Bryant, who...
