Miles Austin misses practice, seems likely to play for fantasy owners

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin missed practice on Friday. We break down the fantasy implication.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin did not practice with the team on Friday, according to Calvin Watkins of ESPN. He also missed Thursday's session, though both days have been described as a "rest day." Austin is dealing with a hamstring injury.

Austin missed two games with said injury, and it was cause for concern given that he has had significant severe hamstring issues in the past. However, Austin did return for the team's Week 6 win over the Washington Redskins. Austin was limited in the game, however, and did not catch any passes.

It sounds like there hasn't been a setback in regards to his hamstring injury, and that the Cowboys are just trying to ensure he enters the team's Week 7 matchup at full health.

Fantasy Impact: Austin has been disappointing this season, especially for fantasy owners. At one time, he was a solid No. 1 option, but he's had a couple down seasons to this point. He remains a solid WR3 option for fantasy owners, however, and seems good to go in regards to his injury. Start him if you have him, unless you have "for sure" better options.
