Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside

A change of scenery might motivate Tavon Austin, who was traded from the Rams to the Cowboys in the offseason. Austin has been especially active in the passing game, twice eclipsing the 50 reception mark in his career. Dallas brought him in for a reasonhasso you have to think he will receive an opportunity.

Fantasy Downside

Austin did have a career-high in carries last season but he only ran the ball 59 times. For a former first-round pick, Austin's numbers have been disappointing unless you had him in PPR leagues back in 2015 and 2016. It's still a mystery as to how the Cowboys will use him in the offense.

2018 Bottom Line

Austin most likely will be the third running back on the depth chart in Dallas. He has gone late in some drafts but the numbers don't really justify it. His role in Dallas in undecided, but Rod Smith would be a better Cowboy running back to have as depth on your roster.
