Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin is officially listed as probable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks. We break down the fantasy implications.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin is officially listed as probable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks. Austin has been dealing with a hamstring injury since the preseason, but he did manage to play in the season-opener against the New York Giants. Austin practiced in full all week and should be ready to suit up when the Cowboys take the field in Seattle. The Seahawks' passing defense presents a tough matchup for Austin and the Cowboys, though.
Fantasy Impact: Long-term, Austin's probable status is excellent news for fantasy owners. He should settle back into his role as a reliable fantasy receiver as long as he is healthy. However, this week might be tough. Seattle's passing defense is among the league's best.
