    Miles Austin

    Love this guy, even before the last two games. But, love him more now. Here's a bit from Peter King's MMQB article about the stats between Austin and Roy Williams.

    The Miles Austin revelation is shocking, particularly when seen in the light of wide receiver Roy Williams. Comparing the past two games of Austin with the Dallas career of the currently forgettable Williams:

    Player - G - Rec. - Yards - Ave. - TD
    Austin - 2 - 16 - 421 - 26.3 - 4
    Williams-17 - 31 - 428 - 13.8 - 2

    Draft picks used to acquire each: Austin 0 (undrafted college free agent out of Monmouth, 2006); Williams 3 (first-, third- and sixth-round picks in trade with Detroit, 2008).

    Salary: Austin, $1.5 million; Williams averages $9 million annually on a five-year, $45 million contract signed with Dallas last year.

    In sum, Austin makes 1/6th annually what Williams makes, and he's produced as many yards in two weeks as Williams has in a totally unproductive 12 months with the Cowboys.


    I still think Dallas isn't a great football team, but this guy (as well as having the running backs healthy) gives me some hope.

    Yeah, wish I would have picked him in fantasy football. I thought two weeks ago was a fluke. Guess not

    I wish I didn't drop him after he sucked the first 4 weeks.
