Week 12: Sit 'Em
Tavon Austin made his biggest fantasy impact of his young career in week ten, catching two touchdown passes for 138 yards, while also finding the endzone on a long punt return. The electric rookie was picked up in many fantasy leagues after this game, but I would not recommend starting him until he starts seeing the field more on offense. Despite his big fantasy numbers in week ten, Austin played just 15 snaps on offense, a number that will not lead to fantasy success in the future. Fantasy owners should not take the gamble on Austin this week.
Coming off his biggest game of the season, I would recommend sitting Michael Floyd on fantasy benches. The second year wide receiver caught six passes for 193 yards and a touchdown in week 11, giving owners hope that he will finally turn the corner and become a reliable fantasy starter. I would not depend on Floyd this week as he had only amassed 61 total receiving yards in the previous two games combined, and is a high risk, high reward play as a WR 3 this week. Unless you have a wide receiver injured or on a bye week, I would keep Floyd on your bench.
