Tavon Austin News
The Dallas Cowboys re-signed wide receiver Tavon Austin to an undisclosed one-year deal on Thursday. Austin played in just seven games due to injury last year and caught eight passes for 140 yards while splitting punt-return duties with Cole Beasley. Austin is a speedster that is most valuable on special teams. He's more of a gadget player on offense and won't have much fantasy appeal at all.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Tavon Austin (groin) practiced in full on Wednesday. Austin hasn't played since Oct. 14 and has a measly seven catches (10 targets) for 130 yards and two touchdowns on the season. However, he could be in play as a deep DFS sleeper if he returns against the Giants in Week 17. In a meaningless game for Dallas, they could rest their starters, which could give Austin plenty of run in an expanded role this weekend. It's a long shot that he'll return much value, however.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Tavon Austin (groin) will not play in Week 7 against the Redskins. Austin is dealing with a potential multi-week injury. He remains mostly a gadget player for the worst passing offense in the NFL, and he has seven catches on 10 targets for 130 yards and two touchdowns. The 28-year-old has also ran the ball six times for 55 yards. He should only be stashed in the deepest of leagues. In his absence, rookie Michael Gallup could have an expanded role, but he's had exactly one reception in five of his six games to begin his career. Avoiding Dallas' receivers is the best strategy.
Dallas Cowboys owners Jerry Jones said wide receiver Tavon Austin (groin) is unlikely to play in Week 7 against the Redskins. Jones said Austin's injury is similar to the one that cornerback Morris Claiborne dealt with in 2016. That injury caused Claiborne to miss nine games that season. While Austin may be back sooner than that, it's looking like his injury could at least cost him multiple games. Other than Cole Beasley's breakout two-touchdown performance on Sunday, none of Dallas' receivers have shown enough to be considered fantasy viable. Austin can be dropped in most leagues. Perhaps his absence allows rookie Michael Gallup to finally make some noise, but it's probably unlikely.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Tavon Austin (groin) suffered a groin injury in the second half of Week 6 against the Jaguars and has been ruled out for the rest of the game. Austin caught his lone target for just five yards before leaving the game. He remains mostly a gadget player in a bad passing offense, so he can continue being ignored in fantasy leagues. Deonte Thompson could see an increased role on offense behind Allen Hurns and rookie Michael Gallup if Austin's injury forces him to miss time beyond this week.
