Dallas Receiving Core

Postby bazzy_51 » Sun Oct 11, 2009 3:45 pm

Ok so this is just about a mess, but with Roy Williams out today Miles Austin stepped up big (granted it was against KC). But still what are we looking at going forward? Williams missed today, Austin had a huge day (LOVE this start at my flex in my money league, 250 yards receiving 2 TDs for a nice 32+ pt day), but also add in Crayton's horrible day with 4 rec and 44 yards with the fumble lost that turned into point for KC. Any insight from a few of you "gurus" on what we can expect the next couple of weeks-the rest of the season.

I personally think that Austin put the exclamation point on his big play ability and solidifying himself in the lineup as a target for Romo. IMO Crayton is a decent receiver, but has never shown that he can consistently get it done week in week out and Roy is just junk when healthy anyways. Romo looked to be fully confident in Miles today targeting him 10 times and more then a handful of those were with Miles double covered.

Again what can we look to expect out of the Dallas receiving core the rest of the way?

I'm tempted to pick up Austin. I really don't know If I feel like riding the Cowboy roller coaster though. Seriously, I feel like Austin wont be able to replicate but who knows. Also, this is a "your best guess is as good as mine" situation.

it's a situation i dont want any part of...any of these guys are capable of having a huge game...but they also post a lot of duds. i guess if you need a bye week replacement they're worth a gamble, but i wouldnt have any confidence starting them and would look for a better option

I agree with this. Witten is the only guy guaranteed to get his targets in Dallas and plus you don't ever really know when Romo is going to have one of his really bad games.

The thing is, and this comes from an avid Roy Williams hater, if you have space to add Miles, you should. Roy doesn't care if he is second, third, or forth option, as long as he gets to signal the first downs.
What if he takes over as the primary in Dallas. Does that team look good enough that it won't have to pass a lot?
If you are worried about the rollercoaster, dump him if he sucks next game and trade him if he produces again. His value then would be very good. So if ya got room and he is availible...

After last night, Miles Austin will be the biggest pick-up this week and he'll be flying off WWs near you. He's not going to last a few more games to solidify himself for a fantasy owner's comfort. If you've got the room, I'd scoop him up immediately based on the play of Williams/Crayton thus far.

I still don't like any of them. Haha Austin could have went for 400 yards and 4 TD's and I'd just peg it as an outlier. Well, it is. The Romo roller coaster has only just begun.
