Cowboys receiver Miles Austin is probable for Wednesday's game against the New York Giants after dealing with a hamstring injury in preseason.Fantasy Spin:We are sure Austin will play in the opener, we're not as sure that he can get through a 16-game schedule without missing time. He played just 10 games last season because of hamstring injuries to both legs and has already missed time in training camp for the same problem. He's a high-risk, high-reward player.

For some, it is the first time they strap on a helmet and hit the battle field. This time everything counts. For others, it’s just another game and fresh start to an NFL [...]
The Dallas Cowboys revamped their offensive line during the offseason.
Veteran guards Mackenzy Bernadeau and Nate Livings were signed, while starting tackles Tyron Smith and Doug Free switched sides. The only carryover starter in the same spot on the line is center Phil Costa.
