He missed two games with a hamstring strain earlier this year, which has been a major issue for him throughout his career.
Coach Jason Garrett said he wasn't impressed with Austin. There's plenty to be concerned with him for the rest of the season. Namely, Terrance Williams has provided much more energy, scoring in each of his last two games.
Fantasy impact: Obviously, fantasy owners aren't going to be starting Austin with confidence. The problem is he has a terrific matchup against the Eagles. Philly can't do anything on defense and teams have been putting up points in bunches. What's more, WR2s for teams have really lit it up all year against them. That said, he's still more of a WR3 with upside since there's some risk involved. Williams is arguably a better play, but he's still a little hands-off material. Dez Bryant should have a monster day.
