UPDATE: Dez Bryant has been scratched at the last minute due to a last-minute positive Covid-19 test.
The Baltimore Ravens host the Dallas Cowboys to close out Week 13, and we get a fun little reunion in this one. Ravens wide receiver Dez Bryant gets to face off against the team where he established himself. You’ve got to think he’ll have a little added motivation this week.
It’s all the more significant because Bryant could see a sizable boost in playing time this week. Fellow Ravens receiver Willie Snead was placed on the Covid-19 injured reserve list and has not been removed from the list in time to be eligible for this game.
Marquise Brown is the Ravens top receiver, and normally Snead is his running mate. With Snead and Mark Andrews both on the Covid-19 IR list, Bryant and Devin Duvernay look to get a boost in playing time and targets.
Fantasy Football analysis: Ravens WRs Dez Bryant, Devin Duvernay
Bryant caught four passes for 28 yards in Week 11, but then neither of his two targets in Week 12. Duvernay has not had any big games, but has had some modest performances. Last week, he had three receptions for 20 yards
Neither has done enough to justify any kind of regular use, but this week is an interesting one with Andrews and Snead sidelined. If you are stuck on a last second decision, Bryant and Duvernay both have some modest PPR value.
