IMO, the mistake you are making is starting hightower over K. Smith.
I think K. Smith is a must start this week.
You make a good point about Austin, and the WAS issues stopping B. Marshall. But, I am a little skeptical of Austin at this point.
I would play Ward over Austin, K. Smith over Ward. Then, the decision is really between Hightower and Austin. If you can live with 20 yards, and need the upside, play Austin. If you need at least something positive on the board and don't need to risk the upside, then I would play Hightower.
Sorry, I know this is not exactly the question you asked. hope it helps.viewtopic.php?f=19&t=461760
