Found August 31, 2013 on Fantasy Sports Locker Room:
PLAYERS: Miles Austin
TEAMS: Dallas Cowboys

Player B is working in an offense with a new play caller, but should expect to see only minor changes in scheme. That offense has tended to be pass heavy over the last few seasons, including last year where it finished 3rd in the league in passing yards and attempts per game. With that said, it was a middling offense in terms of total point production which cannot be overlooked when assessing fantasy value. Over the last four seasons player B has played in 16 games three of four years, missing six games in 2011, though he tends to be viewed – perhaps unfairly – as an injury risk. He has never produced fewer than six touchdowns in a season during that span and boasts a high of 11 – averaging one touchdown for every 8.35 receptions (as compared to Player A’s 1/11.4). He has finished outside of the WR top 30 just once since 2009 (43, in the season where he missed six games) with two top 12 finishes. This season, we seem to be forgetting Player B, drafting him as a low end-WR3 and as a community we’re not expecting much more. His QB is a polarizing figure and as such most people tend to downgrade the anticipated production of each player. Plus, he plays with a dominant WR1 across the field, and while this often opens up there is absolutely no doubt that Player B will finish behind Player A in terms of percentage of his team’s passing targets, assuming both play full seasons... Player B is Miles Austin, and deserves respect as one of the game's most consistent WRs. (Read more on the comparison at the jump).
