2013 Outlook: Quality Backup

Last updated on Oct-05-2013 by Ben Standig

Update (10-4): Here we go again. Miles Austin did not practice again on Friday, his third consecutive missed practice. In his absence, the Cowboys are expected to start Terrance Williams out of Baylor. Last week, the rookie caught seven passes for 71 yards. In what should be a shootout against the Broncos, WIlliams has WR3 appeal. As for Austin, hang on for now and fight through the frustration.

Update (9-23): FFToolbox news on Austin, of the injury kind. - Stop me if you've heard this before: Miles Austin @MilesAustinIII has a hamstring injury. OK, I won't stop there, but yes, Austin injured his hamstring during yesterday's win against St. Louis. Head coach Jason Garrett said Monday that he doesn't think Austin has a "severe hamstring injury, but we'll take his injury day to day and see how he progresses as the week goes on." Austin has suffered three hamstring injuries in the past couple of years, and missed six games in 2011 due to separate hamstring injuries.

Anyone that hears the name Miles Austin and still thinks fantasy darling, it is time to change your outlook (though that doesn't mean the 29-year-old's days as a viable option are over). It has been four seasons since Austin's breakout campaign and three since he posted 1,000 yards in a season, though he almost made it there last year with 943 yards on 66 receptions. Of course, constant hamstring woes limited his availability, though he played in at least portions of all 16 games last season. Dallas used him frequently in the slot and that should continue, though his productivity from that spot was marginal at best. Don't let the name brand fool you, but at the same point, monitor Austin's health this summer. If he's running with ease, he could make for a nice value if selected in the 35-40 range.
