Miles Austin might be sitting out with hamstring issue, Terrance Williams gaining fantasy value

Ronald Martinez

Miles Austin might have to sit out for a few weeks. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cowboys receiver Miles Austin could be shut down for "a while" to rest his lingering hamstring injury. He missed two games earlier in the season due to his perpetually strained hamstring.

For two weeks in a row, Austin has been held without a catch. On the season, he has just 15 catches for 125 yards, which is a far cry for what was expected following an 10-catch Week 1.

Meanwhile, Terrance Williams has a TD catch in three consecutive games. On Sunday, he totaled six catches for 71 yards and a score on seven targets. The third-round pick from the 2013 NFL Draft is off to a fast start and is getting plenty of reps in with the first team.

Fantasy impact: This is probably the straw that broke the camel's back on Austin. There just isn't enough upside now that Williams has shown what he could do. As for Williams, he already should have been owned in just about all leagues and he will have low-end WR2 value most weeks since he can stretch the field and is a nice red-zone threat.
