Miles Austin expected to play in Week 13, fantasy value holds steady

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin (hip) is expected to play in Week 13. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin is expected to play in Week 13, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Ausin injured his hip in the first quarter of the Thanksgiving Day loss to the Washington Redskins and did not return to the game.

Austin, who is second on the team in receiving yards and touchdowns, had just two catches for 32 yards in Week 10 against the Philadelphia Eagles. The two teams meet again on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Austin may miss some time this week but it sounds like he should be ready to play on Sunday against the Eagles. Austin has been frustrating of late for fantasy owners as Dez Bryant has started to get most of the targets at wide receiver and Austin hasn't scored since Week 7.

Assuming he's active, Austin should be considered a low-end No. 2/3 wide receiver for Week 13.
