Dez Bryant Fantasy: Value of WR After Signing With Saints

Report Wide receiver Dez Bryant to sign with the Saints

But several of them, including wide receiver Cole Beasley and linebacker Jaylon Smith, wished Bryant well on Twitter earlier in the day.

The 30-year-old Bryant and the Saints agreed to contract terms on Wednesday, and it remains unclear to what extent Bryant will play when New Orleans visits Cincinnati on Sunday.

On the day he was released, Bryant blamed the move on the fact that multiple players on the Cowboys roster didn't want him on the team anymore. The most impressive run of Bryant's career came from 2012 to 2014, as he topped 1,230 yards and 12 touchdowns in each season. Dallas selected Bryant with a first round pick (24th overall) in the 2010 NFL Draft out of Oklahoma State. Even beyond that, it may help fantasy football owners in need of a wideout for the playoff push. The signing has some far reaching dynasty implications, so let's take a look at the players involved.

Heading into Week 10, the Saints are second in the league in scoring at 34.9 points per game, eighth in third-down conversion percentage at 44.5% and sixth in red-zone scoring percentage (touchdowns) at 71.0%. Drew Brees threw the ball just 23 times in a Week 8 win over the Minnesota Vikings, and then turned around and threw for 346 yards in a shootout win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 9. The Saints also have free-agent signing Cameron Meredith, who's been unable to do much with the team, totaling just nine catches for 114 yards and one touchdown this season. Veteran Ted Ginn Jr. went on IR on October 18 with a knee injury. But his play fell off dramatically past year when he failed to register a single 100-yard game.

Bryant will nearly certainly take over the No. 2 job from rookie third-round pick Tre'Quan Smith, who's totaled 12 catches for 214 yards and three touchdowns this season.

New Orleans is hoping that Bryant can get up to speed quickly and form a lethal duo with Michael Thomas.

The 6-foot-2, 220-pounder was among the NFL's best in his prime. If he's on waivers in your fantasy league, he's a great option to add. Many teams across the league would love to have those numbers. Moving forward, Bryant will be a WR3/flex as he learns the Saints offense, but his value may increase.
