Miles Austin expected to play Sunday night: Fantasy implications

Ronald Martinez

Miles Austin is expected to play for the Cowboys on Sunday night against the Eagles despite a hip injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Miles Austin is expected to play Sunday night when the Dallas Cowboys take on the Philadelphia Eagles, according to Bryan Broaddus of the Cowboys' official site. Austin was listed as questionable on Friday's injury report after being limited in practice throughout the week with a hip injury.

Austin played just 10 snaps last week, and failed to record a reception before leaving the Cowboys' Week 12 loss to the Washington Redskins. On the year, he has 49 receptions for 727 yards and four touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact: Austin owners should tentatively keep him in their starting lineups. Obviously, we won't know anything for sure until game time, but the fact that he wasn't held out at all during the week should make fantasy owners optimistic. The Eagles defense is in shambles after getting lit up by Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers. Austin should be strong fantasy play this week.
