Cowboys' Tavon Austin: Flashes big-play ability against Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin caught both his targets for 79 yards and a touchdown while adding one carry for 15 yards in Sunday night's win over the Giants.

He blew past the defense for a 64-yard score on the third play of the game, but Austin didn't end up being much more involved in the Cowboys' offense than he was in Week 1, when he got one touch. He offers speed and big-play ability that the rest of the team's current receiving corps doesn't, but as yet offensive coordinator Scott Linehan doesn't seem committed to getting Austin consistent looks in a Zeke Elliott-focused attack. As such, Austin's fantasy usefulness is limited to deep leagues and best-ball formats for now.

Cowboys' Tavon Austin: Barely sees field in loss to Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin was on the field for only 10 offensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Panthers, failing to see a target and rushing the ball once for one yard.

Despite all the big preseason talk of Austin being the Cowboys' version of Tyreek Hill, his actual debut with the team was a complete dud. His role could increase as the season wears on and offensive coordinator Scott Linehan tries to find some big-play weapons for Dak Prescott, but given the lack of impact Austin had in five seasons with the Rams, it's unlikely he'll make much of a splash in Dallas.

Cowboys' Tavon Austin: Expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin (hamstring) is expected to play in Sunday's preseason game against the Cardinals, Clarence Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Austin, who recently missed about a week's worth of time due to a bum hamstring, is practicing Friday, per Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News. While the 2013 first-rounder remains a leading candidate to return punts and kickoffs for the Cowboys this season, Austin is buried on the depth chart offensively and isn't a good bet for consistent fantasy production from the outset of the upcoming campaign.

Cowboys' Tavon Austin: Practice likely this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin (hamstring) is expected to participate in practice this week, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Last Wednesday, Austin left drills with what was later termed a tight hamstring, which sidelined him Saturday versus the Bengals. With a return to practice imminent, he seems in line to make his presence felt in the Cowboys' third exhibition Sunday against the Cardinals. However, like teammate Cole Beasley (groin), Austin may have to practice in a full capacity before getting the all-clear for game action.

Cowboys' Tavon Austin: Leaves practice with hamstring tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin departed Wednesday's practice session due to hamstring tightness, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Cowboys owners Jerry Jones clarified after practice that Austin's injury "didn't seem serious" and suggested that the 27-year-old's early exit was precautionary. Austin is aiming to find a role within the first-team offense this season, with most of his reps likely to come at wideout after the Cowboys briefly pondered deploying him out of the backfield when he was initially acquired in late April. He'll have a couple of days to rest up before Saturday's preseason contest against the Bengals.
