2012 Pros and Cons

(+) At 6’2”, 215-pounds, Austin has prototypical size and speed for a receiver


(+) Dallas has more than enough talent at the other skill-positions to keep him in single-coverage


(+) Hopefully Miles wasn't a fluke because Pyro thinks the whole offense is going to shine this year


(+) Miles should still have the drive to succeed after coming into the league undrafted


(+) Usually tough to bring down after ranking second among receivers in YAC (yards-after-catch) in both 2009 and 2010


(–) The situation he is in more than the player he has been the last two seasons is what him anywhere near our Top-25


(–) Missed six games in 2011 and ranked 42nd in WR fantasy points


(–) Ever since he dated Kim Kardashian, he hasn't been the same. Guess he must have really really wanted Bruce Jenner as his Step-Dad


(–) He might actually be the third option now behind both Dez Bryant (more talented) and Jason Witten (groomsman at Romo’s wedding)

2009 Review

miles austin montage - pyro


Miles Austin was at best considered a deep sleeper in larger leagues at this time last year… and by “deep sleeper”, we don’t mean third best fantasy wideout in the league type of sleeper.  Yet, that’s exactly what Austin was in 2009.  After catching just 13 passes over 12 games in 2008, Austin went on to start 9 games for the Cowboys in 2009 (the ‘Boys obviously didn’t know what they had either) and became the #1 receiver they were looking for after Terrell Owens was shown the door.  Of the many surprises that came out of the woodworks last year, Austin was far and away the biggest of them all.  No one could have predicted it, not even the Mayans, so don’t feel bad about not taking the chance on him late in your fantasy draft last year.


miles austin 2009 stats


~ Set career bests in receptions (81), receiving yards (1,320), receiving TDs (11), and yards from scrimmage (1,318)


~ Made his first Pro-Bowl team

2010 Fantasy Outlook







 


Is there any way, in the name of David Boston, that Austin can repeat his gaudy numbers from 2009?  Absolutely.  First of all, Miles started just 9 of a possible 16 games last year.  That in itself is reason enough to believe he has a shot at a repeat-year in 2010.  Secondly, Austin actually got better as the year rolled on, which means that not only does he have the stamina to turn in a full season of work, but it also means that opposing teams never caught up to him and his skills.  Third, Dallas isn’t about to change their game plan, which means Austin will enter the year as the undisputed #1 receiver and will receive #1 receiver type targets from the pass-happy Romo.  Make no mistake about it; Austin will be a #1 fantasy wide receiver in 2010 and it looks like he’s here to stay.


~ The Cowboys will likely work Austin and his skills into the game plan more in 2010 after seeing what he can do last year


~ For all the running back talent that they have, Dallas continues to be a pass-happy team


~ Defenses still might have to put single-coverage on him with the addition of rookie Dez Bryant to the roster

Contract

After being a restricted free agent this past offseason, Austin ended up signing the one-year tender offered by the Cowboys in June of $3.168 million.  The ‘Boys obviously want to keep Miles in the mix for awhile, so expect a long-term deal to come his way at some point during the 2010 season.

Hitting the Books

Coming out of Monmouth College, Miles didn’t do a whole lot his first three years in the league (2006-08).  Seriously, he really didn’t do anything.  He caught 18 passes for 354 yards and 3 touchdowns in that span while mainly being used as a kick returner.  Coming out of a small school, he was considered raw as he had never been coached at a high level before.  Obviously the Cowboys saw potential in the 6’3”, 215-pound receiver with a 4.47 40-yard dash... at least enough to take a flier on him as an undrafted free agent.


It pays to take a chance; fantasy or otherwise...

Injury Report

Green

No significant injury history.

Austin losing out in Dallas

Dallas Cowboys receiver Miles Austin wasn’t practicing Thursday at Valley Ranch after he fully participated in Wednesday’s padded practice.

After missing two weeks, Austin returned from his strained left hamstring injury to play in Sunday’s game against Washington but didn’t have a catch.


Pyro's take: I just want to hammer home the point that Miles Austin is not worth starting in fantasy football. He is always dinged up with injuries and he has a better receiver in Terrance Williams that he is competing with and losing targets to. Terrance Williams is the current #2 on the Cowboys, as well as the future compliment to Dez Bryant.

Austin might play, but a risky fantasy start

Miles Austin participated in his second consecutive full practice Thursday. The receiver hasn’t played since he strained his left hamstring in a Sept. 22 victory over St. Louis.

“He looks pretty good,” quarterback Tony Romo said. “We will be excited to see if he can go this week.”

But if Austin is available, how much will he play? Rookie Terrance Williams has thrived in Austin’s absence, catching 11 passes for 222 yards and a touchdown in the last two games. Second-year player Cole Beasley has also emerged, making four receptions for 47 yards and scoring once against Denver last Sunday.

“Miles is a veteran player that we’d love to have back,” offensive coordinator Bill Callahan said. “We’re going to use him. To what degree, to what extent, we’ll have to wait and see.”

Pyro's take: Austin is not a recommended play this week. The situation in Dallas is not looking good for Miles, as he may have taken a backseat to Terrance Williams in the offense. If Williams has one more good game this week, it is likely that he will remain as the WR2 for the Cowboys. The fact that Bill Callahan has said they don't know how much they will use him should make Austin owners worried about playing him this week.

Miles Austin back at practice

Miles Austin returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since he strained his left hamstring in a Sept. 22 victory over St. Louis.

Austin had missed the last two games because of the injury.

Pyro's take: Austin is back at practice after missing two games, and with the way that Terrence Williams has stepped up I am sure he regrets that. It will be interesting to see where the Cowboys decide to play Austin when he returns, because it looks like Williams is a better option on the outside, so Miles may find himself working the slot. Regardless, you know what you are going to get with Austin, and that is not going to win you any weeks in fantasy, while the rookie from Baylor has much more upside the rest of the way.

Miles Austin to miss week 5

The Dallas Cowboys will likely be without starting wide receiver Miles Austin for a second consecutive week Sunday against Denver.

Austin, didn’t practice again Friday and is officially listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game. Austin has a strained left hamstring.

Pyro's take: This is what seems to happen every year to Austin, and once again this opens the door for rookie Terrence Williams, who had 7 catches for 71 yards last week.

Miles Austin's hammy keeps him out of practice...door open for Terrence Williams

Reports out of Dallas earlier this week said that the hamstring injury suffered by wide receiver Miles Austin last weekend was not as serious as the ones that plagued him over the last two seasons.

That doesn’t mean that he’ll be able to play in Week Four against the Chargers, however. Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that Austin did not participate in Cowboys practice on Thursday, making him 0-for-2 on practices this week. Austin’s history with hamstring injuries means that the Cowboys are going to be cautious with Austin in terms of practice, but it also means they’ll likely be wary of the possibility of recurrence after seeing it happen the last two years.

Austin isn’t the only ailing wideout. Dwayne Harris thought he would be able to practice on Thursday after missing Wednesday’s session with a hip injury, but he joined Austin on the sideline.

Pyro's take: Going up against the Chargers this week I can easily see the Cowboys resting Austin to make sure he is healthy. This will open the door for Terrence Williams, the rookie out of Baylor. Williams has yet to make an impact in fantasy, but this was the opportunity we thought he would have at some point this season, when Austin went down.

Having Dez on the other side will keep the rookie from seeing double coverages, and he has the benefit of a veteran quarterback in Tony Romo to get him the ball in good spots. Oh yeah, and San Diego is the worst pass defense in the league so far this season giving up an average of 340.7 yards through the air per game.

Miles Austin dealing with a bad hammy

The Cowboys won’t know until later this week if wide receiver Miles Austin (strained left hamstring) will be able to play against San Diego on Sunday, SportsDay’s David Moore reports.

Austin was injured on the Cowboys’ second drive of the third quarter. Austin limped off the field after he made a catch out of bounds along the right sideline on a deep pass by quarterback Tony Romo. Austin spent some time on a stationary bicycle on the sideline, but the Cowboys decided not to put him back into the game.

Pyro's take: Austin played in every game last season, so you had to know that he was going to get dinged up again before too long. The Monmouth product looked good in the season opener, but has only garnered 5 catches for 53 yards and 0 touchdowns over the past 2 weeks.

It is unclear at this time of Austin will play against the Chargers, regardless he is a risky play with the hamstring. The player who will benefit from this is the rookie Terrence Williams. The rookie failed to hit the stat sheet this week, but would move into the #2 receiver role if Austin misses time, and with Williams' size and ability, he is more suited to be an outside receiver.

Austin injures thumb, but should be fine

Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin had his thumb wrapped after the game against the Redskins last night but also stated it was more precautionary than anything else.

Pyro's take: Austin hurt his thumb on the final play of the first half, but still ended up with nine catches for 92 yards. He should be fine for next week's game against the Eagles.

Austin starting to see double-teams

For the first time since taking hold of the WR1 spot in Week 5 against the Chiefs, Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin saw himself double-teamed by the opponent. "They doubled him some, which we hadn’t seen, but a lot of the time he was open. It just wasn’t the read that Tony [Romo] had," coach Wade Phillips said.

Pyro's take: Expect this to be the norm with Roy Williams and Patrick Crayton able to be covered man-to-man. Austin likely won't have another of those huge weeks like he had against KC and Atlanta, but he'll still be able to be used as a WR1/2 on your fantasy football team, depending on who the 'Boys are playing.

Austin tweaks groin, but should be fine

Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin tweaked his groin in the game against the Seahawks on Sunday but is not expected to be limited in practice this upcoming week.

Pyro's take: Every little bit matters at this point in the season, so hopefully the newly anointed WR1 plays it smart this week. He's a must-start on your fantasy football team going forward, so check back on his practice status this week.

Austin second in NFL in YAC despite limited play

Through six weeks of the 2009 NFL season, Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin is second in the league in yards after the catch (YAC) with 193 yards despite catching just 15 passes on the year.

Pyro's take: Austin went absolutely berserk in Week 5 against the Chiefs racking up 10 receptions for 250 yards, most of which came after the catch. We'd be shocked if Miles stayed among the top WRs in YAC for the rest of the year, but that doesn't take away from what he's done thus far.

Austin officially takes starting job in Dallas

Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin has officially taken over the starting WR job from Patrick Crayton. The team updated it's website over the bye week to show Austin in the starting lineup next to Roy Williams.

Pyro's take: Austin's skill-set is far more extensive than Crayton's, so it's no surprise that this announcement was made. Miles can be used as a WR3 on your fantasy football team, especially during these weeks with teams going on their byes.

Miles Austin could be a starter in Week 7

Cowboys wide receiver Patrick Crayton could come out of the bye week having lost both his starting job to WR Miles Austin and punt return job to whoever wins the contest the Cowboys will hold this week.

Pyro's take: Austin is better suited as a receiver who can stretch the defense, something the Cowboys desperately need. Crayton is too tentative a player for either job, so if you have him on your fantasy football squad, you might want to think about dropping him and picking up Miles Austin.

Miles Austin will start if Roy Williams can't go

Dallas Cowboys coach Wade Phillips said on Thursday that if wide receiver Roy Williams (ribs) can't play on Sunday, Miles Austin would get the start in his place.

Pyro's take: We still think that Roy will man-up and get out there on the field Sunday, but if he doesn't, Austin could be a decent flex play for your fantasy football squad against a weak Kansas City pass D.

Miles Austin ready to go

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin took part in every aspect of practice on Wednesday and looks to be good to go for the Week 1 game against the Buccaneers.

Pyro's take: He didn't win the WR2 job as expected during the preseason, so he'll work as the third receiver. For all his talents, if he can't beat out a Patrick Crayton, then there must be something wrong with the kid. Late-round flier? Nah, wait for the waiver wire... then still ignore him.

Miles Austin sits out Monday, should be okay for Week 1

Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin sat out practice on Monday, but should be back before the first game of the year. "It looks like he'll be practicing full speed Wednesday, but we'll see," said coach Wade Phillips. "The trainers said they wanted one more day with him to make sure he could do everything. I think he did that today."

Pyro's take: Austin's career thus far has been running on potential and not much else. The Cowboys are hoping he can step it up this year as their depth chart at the receiver position is looking a little thin. He could be worth a last round flier, but that's about it.

Crayton has hold on WR2 as Austin unimpressive thus far

Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin has been decent so far this preseason, but hasn't shown enough to overtake Patrick Crayton's WR2 slot in the Cowboys first-team offense.

Pyro's take: The Cowboys have been looking for some speed out of the position, but Austin seems to be coming up short in that area. Crayton has a firm hold on the WR2 position for now, but one guy to watch for is young WR Sam Hurd, who seems to be making plays all over the field this preseason.

Stock falling for Cowboys' Austin

According to beat writer Tim MacMahon, Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin is struggling to hold on to the No. 3 receiver spot. "The gap between Nos. 3 and 4 appears closer than the one between Nos. 2 and 3."

Pyro's take: The No. 4 receiver would be Sam Hurd, who turned in a terrific performance in the Cowboys first preseason game (5 catches for 79 yards) while Austin missed both passes thrown to him, including one that hit him in the numbers. Austin's had a decent training camp, but it looks like Patrick Crayton's spot at the No. 2 position is safe for now.

Miles Austin ready to go

After sitting out the last couple weeks of OTAs with a hamstring injury, Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin has been practicing in full as training camp has gotten underway.

Pyro's take: Austin is battling Patrick Crayton for the No. 2 spot behind Roy Williams, and whoever gets this spot will put up some respectable numbers as teams double-team Williams.
