DALLAS, Oct. 24 (UPI) -- If you selected Dez Bryant in the first or second round of your fantasy football draft, you have likely had a frustrating season so far.
But the Dallas Cowboys stud wide receiver is nearing a return from a knee injury. On Monday, Dallas Morning News' Jon Machota reported that Bryant was "doing everything" at practice.
"Tony Romo and Tyron Smith were not at practice. Dez Bryant was doing everything during portion open to media. Looked good catching passes," Machota tweeted.

As Dez Bryant walks off field he finds me and tells me "Don't have to ask me anymore, I'm good...playing against Philly"— Jane Slater (@SlaterNFL) October 16, 2016
Bryant told NFL Network's Jane Slater that he was "playing against Philly."
"As Dez Bryant walks off field he finds me and tells me "Don't have to ask me anymore, I'm good...playing against Philly," Slater tweeted.
Bryant, who has 11 receptions for 150 yards and one touchdown in three games, should remain a WR1 for the rest of the season. He should benefit from a balanced Cowboys attack, flourishing behind rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott.
