Miles Austin set to have MRI: Fantasy implications

Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin was scheduled to have an MRI on Friday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin was scheduled to have an MRI on Friday, a day after straining his hip flexor in the first quarter of Thursday's loss to the Washington Redskins. Austin took two big hits early in the game and never returned, finishing without a catch.

Dwayne Harris and Cole Beasley combined for 11 catches and 139 yards on Sunday, while Dez Bryant had eight catches, 145 yards and two touchdowns. Dallas will host the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 13.

Fantasy Impact: Austin hasn't put up huge fantasy in recent weeks but fantasy owners won't want to be without him with the fantasy playoffs looming. Fantasy owners will have to monitor this situation into next week.

If healthy, Austin remains a No. 2 fantasy wide receiver, while Beasley and Harris could be worth some consideration in deeper leagues if Austin is ruled out for Week 13.
