The Dallas Cowboys will be without two offensive players as they take on the Detroit Lions this afternoon. WR Miles Austin and RB DeMarco Murray have been ruled out. Murray did practice this week and some reports had suggested that he might be able to play this afternoon but he was spotted limping on Friday and it’s possible that he aggravated his sprained MCL.
In Murray’s place, Joseph Randle will get the start this afternoon and isn’t considered a horrible flex play this week if he’s still available on you waiver wire.
WR Miles Austin has been battling a hamstring injury and will not get to see the field this week. Austin has been a fantasy disappointment this season. Saavy fantasy owners were able to snag WR Terrance Williams off the waiver wire. With a score this afternoon, Williams will have scored a touchdown in four straight games. Williams is a solid WR 2 this afternoon while facing a Detroit Lions defense that has allowed six touchdowns to wideouts in the last four weeks.
