Miles Austin Week 16 Fantasy Projections

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin is another player that had a poor performance against the Philadelphia Eagles back in Week 8. Miles was held out of the end zone and had three catches for 27 yards. In Austin's last two games since he returned from a hamstring injury he has nine receptions for 116 yards and two touchdowns.

Since Austin's return he has reclaimed his status as Tony Romo's top receiver. Austin was targeted 15 times in the past two games with the next closest receiver being tight end Jason Witten who was targeted 10 times during that same stretch.

SB Nation's Fake Teams put Austin as the highest rated Cowboy side receiver this week at No. 10, and numberFire puts Austin one spot higher at No. 9.
