2014 Outlook: Bye Week Fill-in

Last updated on Jul-08-2014 by Rob Warner

Austin signed a one-year, $2 million contract after a difficult season in Dallas. Austin battled hamstring injuries that cost him 11 games over the past three seasons. In 2013, he collected 24 catches for 244 yards. In 2012, the Monmouth alum had 66 catches for 943 yards and six touchdowns. He remains a potential PPR option since he will be a likely starter in Cleveland with Josh Gordon facing suspension. Austin is a better option in the slot with his diminishing speed and 65 catches in three of the past five seasons. Austin would be a solid addition to your fantasy bench, although he has a very low ceiling given the Browns' unreliable QB situation.

Editor's note: It's difficult to know what to expect from Austin. Even when he has played over the last few seasons, the former Monmouth alum was always dinged up or recovering from some past injury. What he can do as a No. 1 receiver again is a total mystery. What we do know is he is likely the best receiver on the roster and considering his ADP (192.67), taking a chance on him isn't that risky.
