We're still up against it."

Wed, 20 Nov 2013 13:00:57 -0800

Sun, 17 Nov 2013 19:52:00 -0800
Dallas Cowboys WR Terrance Williams is expected to see a dent in playing time and targets with WR Miles Austin (hamstring) expected back in Week 12. Still, the team has been happy with Williams' maturation. "He's got a real high level of maturity from a work ethic standpoint," receivers coach Derek Dooley said Sunday, Nov. 17. "From an off the field standpoint. From a team standpoint. I think that's one of the things that's contributed to his ability to really have so much success early. He's really made the adjustment from being a college guy to a pro as well as anybody."
Fantasy Tip: It's hard to imagine the team taking targets away from Williams, who has really blossomed during Austin's absence. Plus, Austin isn't exactly the picture of health, and it might just be a matter of time before he is sidelined again. Williams should be treated as a WR4 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 12.

Tue, 12 Nov 2013 19:56:36 -0800
The Dallas Cowboys are hopeful WR Miles Austin (hamstring) can return soon. He has resumed running and doing some cardio work in rehab, but his return date remains uncertain. The team is hoping time off will allow him to get healthy enough to return to game action.
Fantasy Tip: If Austin is available off the waiver wire in your fantasy league, he might be worth stashing away if you have the roster flexibility. Still, there is no immediate return in sight, so be patient. When he returns, it's possible he might be the No. 3 wideout on the team following the emergence of Terrance Williams.
Tue, 12 Nov 2013 09:58:38 -0800

Thu, 07 Nov 2013 13:41:16 -0800
Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin (hamstring) did not practice for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 7.

Wed, 06 Nov 2013 10:14:17 -0800
Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin (hamstring) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Nov. 6.

Tue, 05 Nov 2013 06:45:44 -0800
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said WR Miles Austin (hamstring) and CB Morris Claiborne (hamstring) are improving but are doubtful for Week 10.
Fantasy Tip: At this point, Austin is causing your team more pain than anything. Especially in shallow leagues, it's probably that time to get rid of him and avoid him clogging your roster any longer. Terrance Williams has risen to the forefront alongside Dez Bryant.
Sun, 03 Nov 2013 08:42:23 -0800

Fri, 01 Nov 2013 10:40:45 -0700
Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin (hamstring) will likely miss his second straight game in Week 9 against the Minnesota Vikings. He hasn't practiced at all this week after being limited the previous two weeks. "He can play without getting a whole lot of reps but he has certainly been dialed back this week," head coach Jason Garrett said. "We'll see how he does today."
Fantasy Tip: Leave Austin on your bench. If you are struggling to find room on your roster for an addition, it's getting to the point where cutting him should be a real option. Terrance Williams has emerged as a trustworthy receiver opposite of Dez Bryant.
Thu, 31 Oct 2013 15:11:13 -0700
Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 31.
Fantasy Tip: It does not appear like Austin will play Week 9 because of his hamstring injury. Austin likely will sit out until his hamstring is fully healed because the team does not want him to have any setbacks.

Wed, 30 Oct 2013 10:14:28 -0700
Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin (hamstring) and DE DeMarcus Ware (thigh) are not participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 30.
Fantasy Tip: Both Austin and Ware did some work on the side in practice. it looks like it'll be a battle for both players to get back into game action this week, so they are very risky options to consider for your starting lineups. Terrance Williams continues to be a very strong flex play as long as Austin is banged up.
Sun, 27 Oct 2013 19:20:04 -0700
Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin (hamstring) was inactive again in Week 8, and his return date is uncertain. The team has discussed shutting him down until he is 100 percent.
Fantasy Tip: The strong play of Dez Bryant, the maturation of Terrance Williams, and the emergence of secondary receiver Cole Beasley have made the loss of Austin less painful. If you're a fantasy owner of Austin, this type of thing isn't new. He is a tremendous talent, but he just cannot stay healthy. Do not cut bait yet, but if he isn't back in two weeks, and you need the roster spot, it might be time then.
Sun, 27 Oct 2013 08:47:24 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin (hamstring) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 25, and is listed as questionable for Week 8 against the Detroit Lions. Head coach Jason Garrett mentioned possibly resting Austin so that he could be healthy for the second half of the season.
Fantasy Tip: Relying on Austin is a very risky proposition. To be safe, it would be wise to avoid him like the plague. Even if he plays, there is a good chance he'll have his snaps limited. Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley will pick up the slack and are nice sleeper options.
Fri, 25 Oct 2013 12:17:13 -0700
The Dallas Cowboys may consider releasing WR Miles Austin after June 1 because they would save $5 million in salary cap space. Austin has been dealing with hamstring injuries since he joined the team in 2006.

Wed, 23 Oct 2013 14:48:03 -0700
Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 23.
Fantasy Tip: Austin played only 37 of 77 offensive snaps in Week 7 and went without a catch for the second straight week - he's clearly hampered by his left hamstring ailment, and the team could decide to hold him out this weekend. He's an extremely risky option in Week 8. If you can, go elsewhere.

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (undisclosed) and WR Miles Austin (hamstring) were dressed for practice Wednesday, Oct. 23, but did not participate in individual drills.
Mon, 21 Oct 2013 13:53:24 -0700
Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett indicated the team could hold WR Miles Austin (hamstring) out until he is fully recovered from his hamstring injury. "He really had a good start to the season, had some good explosiveness and quickness to him and was productive for us. Then he tweaked his hamstring a couple of weeks ago and hasn't been the same. We've got to make sure we get him healthy and hopefully we can do that and have some other guys play for him until he's ready to really roll," Garrett said.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to watch his practice participation as well as the inactive list to see if Austin is healthy enough to play in the next few weeks.
Fri, 18 Oct 2013 15:33:41 -0700
Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin (hamstring) is listed as probable for Week 7.
Fri, 18 Oct 2013 12:11:41 -0700

Fantasy Tip: It appears the Cowboys are just being cautious with Austin at this point, but still check back as the weekend goes on, just to be sure there are no setbacks.
Thu, 17 Oct 2013 10:00:52 -0700
Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin (rest) got the day off from practice Thursday, Oct. 17, in part to help make sure he is a full-go for the team's Week 7 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Fantasy Tip: There is no reason to think Austin won’t play, as this appears to be precautionary more than anything else.
Wed, 16 Oct 2013 16:17:49 -0700
Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin (hamstring) practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 16.
Fantasy Tip: Austin looks to finally be getting closer to full health with his hamstring. He didn't do much in his first game back in Week 6, although he nearly missed hauling in a touchdown pass. The matchup is juicy against the Philadelphia Eagles, but it'll be in the back of your mind how healthy he really is.
Tue, 15 Oct 2013 11:41:18 -0700
Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said WR Miles Austin (hamstring) was just "OK" in his return to action in Week 6 against the Washington Redskins. "He's clearly working his way back into it. I don't think he looked as explosive as he did early on in the year. He's clearly trying to get his hamstring healthy. He came through the game, looked like he was able to function, everything we asked him to do. But he's a work in progress coming back," Garrett said. Austin was targeted four times in the game and went without a catch, but he barely missed a touchdown on a pass that was deflected by a defender.
Fantasy Tip: The Philadelphia Eagles in Week 7 present another decent opportunity for Austin to get back on track after missing two games with the hamstring ailment. However, you have to wonder how healthy he is, and with Terrance Williams able to provide Tony Romo with another outlet, Austin shouldn't inspire much confidence in his owners just yet.
Mon, 14 Oct 2013 05:18:13 -0700
