  • Saints sign ex Cowboys WR Dez Bryant

Dez Bryant has found a new team, agreeing to contract teams with the New Orleans Saints.

NFL Media notes that Bryant will wear No. 88 in New Orleans and report to the team's facility on Thursday after spending Wednesday in Dallas with his son.

Seeking salary cap relief, the Cowboys released Bryant after last season with two years remaining on the receiver's five-year, $70 million contract. Since that banner year, Bryant has posted just 150 catches, 2,035 yards and 17 touchdowns over the past three seasons. Tre'Quan Smith, a third-round pick previous year, has the second-most receiving yards for a wideout this season for the Saints at just 214 yards.

But how does it affect fantasy football owners? Let's take a look at Bryant's fantasy outlook with his new team and how to approach the situation.

Women who wake up early have a lower risk of developing breast cancer , USA Today cited researchers in the United Kingdom as saying.

Led by record-setting quarterback Drew Brees, the Saints rank seventh on offense overall, averaging 402.2 yards per game, and seventh in passing, averaging 289.9 yards. When Bryant, a former star, worked out with Cleveland, he briefly negotiated with the team but never came to terms. Veteran Ted Ginn Jr.is on injured reserve with a knee injury. Meanwhile, Cameron Meredith has been a complete non-factor, failing to register even a target in the last three weeks.

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. The former Central Florida wideout has impressive speed and could be a great option alongside Thomas and Bryant.

The Saints (7-1) now sit atop the NFC South and visit the Cincinnati Bengals (5-3) on Sunday. He's done such a great job for this organization and been an impact player in this league over the course of his eight years playing. He makes sense in virtually all leagues, but specifically 12-team leagues and above.
