Miles Austin continued his role as the No. 2 receiver catching 3 passes for 53 yards on 8 targets.
Fantasy Impact: Austin is one of the more consistent plays on the Browns receiver corps. Unfortunately, he is consistently underwhelming for fantasy. If you absolutely need a fill in, he will have about 4 catches and the best you can hope for is one of them to be in the end zone.

Miles Austin has stayed fit and produced 169 yards and 2 touchdowns on 16 receptions during 4 games this season.
Fantasy Impact: Austin has had trouble with his hamstrings during his time with the Cowboys, and that is the main reason they parted ways. Miles has racked up 22 targets so far this season, and that’s the second most on the team. Hoyer is really good at spreading the ball around, so it will be hard to rely on Miles from week to week, but the stats indicate he is the number 2 wide receiver on the Browns.

Austin goes for 44 yards and a TD on 6 receptions.
Fantasy Impact: Austin had the only receiving touchdown for the Browns on a 3-yard catch. Hoyer did a great job spreading the ball around the entire game, and as long as Austin doesn’t get injured, he should be able to produce WR3 value.

Fantasy Impact: Depending on the suspension hearing for Josh Gordon, Miles Austin has a chance to be the Browns number one wide receiver by default. If this is the case, Austin could provide solid production and would come at a very low cost in fantasy drafts. Austin still appears to have the talent that got him to the Pro Bowl with Dallas, but he has had trouble staying healthy the past few seasons and carries with him a significant injury risk.
