After catching ten passes in week one, Miles Austin has hauled in just five passes over the next five weeks. Austin returned from a two game absence in week six, but did not make his way onto the box score - catching zero balls on just four targets. Terrance Williams played well in Austin's absence, and should continue to rotate with Austin when the Cowboys have only two wide receivers on the field. With Dez Bryant and Jason Witten dominating the targets for Dallas, it is unlikely that Austin will make a major impact over the remainder of the season. Fantasy owners should hold on to Miles Austin as no more than a backup wide receiver.

Charles Clay has been a pleasant surprise for fantasy owners this season, emerging as a borderline TE 1 in fantasy leagues. Clay has caught a touchdown in two consecutive games, but faces a Buffalo Bills defense that has allowed the second least amount of points to fantasy tight ends this season. It can be tough for fantasy owners who do not have a top flight tight end to make weekly decisions with borderline starting tight ends, so if you are in this position this week, I would leave Clay on your bench.
