Austin has been a letdown to owners with just 49 catches for 727 yards and four TDs this season.
Fantasy Impact: Austin has been probable for essentially the entire season with his perpetually injured hamstring, but this week there's a chance he might sit. It would appear the hip injury is a bigger concern since that's what was being worked on in the Cowboy's last game on Thanksgiving.
Austin getting a few extra days should help his cause and he's very likely to suit up. The problem is that he plays on a late game, so if for some reason he gets the inactive tag, his owners might be in a serious bind.
If for some reason you want to start Austin, we'd suggest handcuffing him to Dwayne Harris just in case.
