2012 #84 Miles Austin- WR Dallas Cowboys- Remember when Austin was the #1 target for Tony Romo and a real fantasy monster? Yep, that was 2009 Pre-Dez Bryant.  Austin now is the #2 guy in Big D and unless Bryant gets hurt Miles will only be a guy you want to start in deep leagues or flex position.  Austin stats last season were ok 66 catches 943 yards and 6 touchdowns.  His best game was Week #8 against the NY Giants when he had 9 catches for 133 yards.  Miles never scored  20 fantasy points in a week in 2012

Retro #84– 2002 Joey Galloway-WR Dallas Cowboys- Galloway had a very nice career but he was fantasy football fools gold.  He could have a huge game 7-122-2TD’s or go 1-9 yards.  He was frustrating to own because the weeks you needed him to produce he would always seem to find a way to disappoint.

Look Ahead 2013 #84

ESPN– DeSean Jackson- I’ve had Jackson in both my dynasty leagues since he entered the league and he’s a lot like Galloway.  Frustrating and seems to become less productive in fantasy football.  We will see if Kelly improves him or ends is fantasy value.

CBS Sports– Stevie Johnson- Johnson will have a new QB throwing the ball to him and probably a whole new offense so he is a truly a huge question mark going into 2013. Johnson though productive is always one of those character guys that I avoid. I know what you like and dislike can cost you in fantasy football but knuckle heads always seem to lose in the end.
