Austin v. VJax

I picked Miles Austin with Vincent Jackson still on the board. A bit of buyers remorse. Was this a mistake?

Time will tell. I like M Austin, particularly in the slot and he's been Romo's boy since Austin became a starter. Some concerns with Hammy injury and lack of practice/conditioning in preseason because of it....so, he will probably start slow.
I think V Jackson and C Johnson are poised to have monster years barring injuries to themselves or their respective QB's, etc.

I tend to think its close to even, but I would give VJax a higher rating. I have VJax at a #7, and Austin at #10 Austin will be competing for touches with Dez & Clark. VJax will be competing for touches with Gates and Floyd. And with Gates possibly missing games with his injury, the chance of VJax being the focal point is there. Austin faces Eagles 2X and the Jets. VJax plays in a weak AFC West facing Jets, Bears & GB as his toughest matchups. But its all speculation right now. Enjoy your team.

KUBIAK had Austin ahead of VJax. I think I got too influenced by that rating.

I missed that Austin had the hammy issue. That probably would have changed my mind.

Time will tell.
