Aug 24, 2013; Arlington, TX, USA; Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin (19) catches a touchdown pass while defended by Cincinnati Bengals strong safety Taylor Mays (26) in the second quarter at AT
Justin: Miles Austin, WR, Dallas Cowboys
Austin seems to be the forgotten man amongst fantasy circles. Few remember his top-ten production season from a few years back. Austin is still heavily involved in this Cowboys offense, and as long as he stays healthy, he will continue to pile up the receptions. Austin had 10 receptions on 12 targets last week. Dallas will continue to throw the football a lot, because their rushing attack and run-blocking is completely ineffective. With defenses continuing to focus on Dez Bryant, Austin will receive a lot of attention from his quarterback, Tony Romo.
David: Emmanuel Sanders, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers
Truth be told, I really don’t like the matchup for the Steelers this week. Their offensive line is already decimated (thanks in large part to our beastly Titans), and the Cincinnati Bengals defensive line is ripe with young, talented players. Hence, I have no faith in the Steelers ability to run the ball. Therefore, Big Ben will have to air it out early and often to keep them in the game. Sanders saw 12 targets last week, 5 more than teammate Antonio Brown. Look for him to be a pivotal cog if this Steeler’s offense is going to get anything going.
