One of the most frustrating aspects of the preseason for any fantasy owner is trying to keep up with and properly value each player who gets injured, suspended, or is coming back from an injury.

In 2015, Dez Bryant suffered from injury to himself and to his QB, posted 9.9 fantasy points per game (FP/G) in point-per-reception (PPR) formats, and was the #52 WR overall in that fantasy system.
