Description: Browns wide receiver Miles Austin has been placed on injured reserve, ending his season.
Insight: He is dealing with a kidney injury. Austin was having a decent season, with 47 receptions, 568 yards, and two touchdowns. It will be interesting to see where he plays in 2015.
 
11/30/2014 6:21:00 PM
Description: Browns wide receiver Miles Austin had seven catches for 86 yards to lead the team in both categories.
Insight: Austin was tied with Josh Gordon with seven receptions, but outgained Gordon in receiving yards. Gordon is clearly the best fantasy option in the Browns receiving core, but Austin has proved he has value in deeper leagues.
 
11/7/2014 9:22:00 AM
Description: Browns wide receiver Miles Austin led the team in targets with six, catching five balls for 48 yards.
Insight: Brian Hoyer didn't thrown much, or need to throw much, so none of the Cleveland receivers put up fantasy-worthy numbers. His value will certainly take a dip when Josh Gordon returns.
 
10/13/2014 5:39:00 PM
Description: Browns wide receiver Miles Austin had two catches for 29 yards against the Steelers in Week 6.
Insight: Brian Hoyer completed just eight passes, so that isn't exactly surprising Austin had two catches. With so few completions and three of them going to Jordan Cameron, Austin and the rest of the receiving core did not do much.
 
9/16/2014 4:40:00 PM
Description: Cleveland wide receiver Miles Austin scored his first touchdown as a Brown, during Week 2 against the Saints.
Insight: He had six catches for 44 yards and the score. Austin is not a recommended play moving forward, as he is simply not the player he once was.
 
8/5/2014 5:38:00 PM
Description: Miles Austin is listed as one of the starting receivers on Cleveland's first depth chart, according to SB Nation.
Insight: Josh Gordon is the other, but he is facing a one-year suspension. Austin will remain atop the depth chart until he starts dealing with his typical injury problems. Nate Burleson and Andrew Hawkins are behind Austin and Gordon.
 
5/15/2014 6:56:00 PM
Description: Former Cowboys wideout Miles Austin has caught on with the Browns.
Insight: With Josh Gordon (suspension) likely lost for the season, Cleveland needed to address their wide receiver situation. Austin was useless in Dallas last season (24 catches, 244 yards, zero touchdowns) but maybe a change of scenery will be good for him.

Insight: The quest for cap space continues for Dallas. This move frees up about $5.5 million. Perhaps the Cowboys will use some of that money to bring back DeMarcus Ware on a more affordable deal. Austin's fantasy value is at an all-time low.
 
11/19/2013 9:31:00 PM
Description: According to Bryan Broaddus of dallascowboys.com, Miles Austin (hamstring) will take over as the No. 2 receiver immediately when he returns to action Sunday against the Giants.
Insight: The team has held Austin out since Oct. 20 to make sure his hamstring is 100 percent. He hasn't caught a pass since Week 3, but with Terrance Williams struggling the team will get the more polished Austin involved. He's worth an add as a potential WR3, and Williams is a hold given Austin's injury history.
 
11/19/2013 5:18:00 PM
Description: Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says receiver Miles Austin (hamstring) is ready to play and could have played two weeks ago, according to Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com.
Insight: The team has held Austin out since Oct. 20 to make sure he's 100 percent. He hasn't caught a pass since Week 3 and isn't a fantasy option, but his return will put a damper on the value of Terrance Williams.
 
11/10/2013 7:55:00 PM
Description: Cowboys receiver Miles Austin (hamstring) is not active for Sunday's game versus New Orleans.
Insight: Hamstring injuries have held Austin back all season and the team has shut him down to try to get him 100 percent healthy. There's no need to stash him, as he'll be behind Terrance Williams on the depth chart if he can ever return to action.
 
11/7/2013 4:59:00 PM
Description: Cowboys receiver Miles Austin (hamstring) is not expected to play Sunday, according to Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com.
Insight: Hamstring injuries have held Austin back all season and the team has shut him down to try to get him 100 percent healthy. There's no need to stash him, as he'll be behind Terrance Williams on the depth chart if he can ever return to action.
 
10/27/2013 11:53:00 AM
Description: Dallas receiver Miles Austin won't play Sunday against the Lions.
Insight: Hamstring injuries have held Austin back all season. Terrance Williams has done well as the Cowboys' No. 2 wideout and even if Austin can get healthy, he's not likely to get his job back from Williams. Austin has been off the fantasy radar for a while now.
 
10/25/2013 10:19:00 AM
Description: Cowboys receiver Miles Austin (hamstring) should not be counted on in Week 8.
Insight: Although still listed as questionable, he probably won't play. Austin has zero catches since Week 3 and wideout Terrance Williams has ably filled in with 19 receptions for 320 yards and 3 TDs in the last four games.
 
10/23/2013 6:16:00 PM
Description: Cowboys receiver Miles Austin (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice, two days after Jason Garrett said the team might "shut down" the receiver.
Insight: Austin suffered a hamstring injury in Week 3 and hasn't caught a pass since then despite playing the last two weeks. Terrance Williams has stepped up as Tony Romo's No. 2 receiver and Cole Beasley is even a better option than Austin in Week 8 after catching 10 passes on 13 targets the last two games.
 
10/21/2013 4:11:00 PM
Description: Cowboys receiver Miles Austin's play shows he's not over his hamstring injury.
Insight: Austin has been replaced by rookie Terrance Williams who has a touchdown catch in each of the last three games. The pecking order has changed in Big D with Dez Bryant followed by Williams and Austin.
 
10/18/2013 1:28:00 PM
Description: Cowboys receiver Miles Austin (hamstring) fully participated in Wednesday's practice and then was given Thursday and Friday off.
Insight: Austin played last week but had zero catches as the entire Cowboys offense didn't need to do much to beat Washington. He's no better than a bye week replacement these days and that's when he's healthy.
 
10/16/2013 6:42:00 PM
Description: Cowboys receiver Miles Austin (hamstring) fully participated in Wednesday's practice.
Insight: Austin played Sunday night but had zero catches as the entire Cowboys offense didn't need to do much to beat Washington. He was targeted four times. He has another good matchup in Week 7 against the Eagles but is a desperation WR3.

Description: Cowboys receiver Miles Austin expects to start Sunday versus Washington. SOURCE: Bryan Broaddus, Cowboys.com
Insight: He's missed the past couple of weeks with a hamstring injury. It's a dream matchup for Austin as Washington's defense has been among the most generous in the NFL this season. Don't be surprised if the two-time Pro Bowler sneaks in a touchdown on Sunday.
 
10/11/2013 11:55:00 AM
Description: Dallas wideout Miles Austin (hamstring) practiced on Friday (his third consecutive day on the practice field) and is likely to play Sunday night against the Redskins, according to Cowboys beat reporter Todd Archer.
Insight: Austin and hamstring injuries are a danger every time he plays. Terrance Williams performed well in Austin's absence, but if he's back it makes it tough to start either receiver who only get targets after Tony Romo has looked toward Dez Bryant and Jason Witten.
