MIles Austin Week 15 Fantasy Projections

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin is back in his second straight game after missing four with a hamstring injury. Last week was Austin's first game back and he had 63 yards on four receptions with a touchdown, and showed no ill effects. Prior to Austin's injury he was Tony Romo's favorite target and if that picks up again Saturday night Austin could have another good game.

Austin is looking to build upon that performance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he will have the opportunity as the Bucs pass defense is 27th in the NFL. Wide receiver Laurent Robinson who has filled in quite well when Austin was out is questionable for Saturday's game with a shoulder injury. If Robinson is not able to play tonight then look for Austin to pick up a few extra targets. 

SB Nation's fantasy site Fake Teams ranks Austin as the No. 13 receiver, and numberFire has Austin one spot lower at No. 14.
