Miles Austin was a fantasy stud just two years ago and now falls to number four on my deep sleepers list. Most people forget that this guy caught at least 6 touchdowns in four straight seasons before getting shut out in 2013.

The problem with Austin has been his inability to stay healthy. He’s only played in 11 games over the past three seasons so it’s hard to count on him.

The reason he makes this list is because he does look healthy now and with Cleveland, he quickly becomes one of their best options at the position with the recent suspension of Josh Gordon.

Austin is the perfect spot starter if you need a quick pickup due to an injury or bye week. It won’t seem too crazy to take a flier out on this one time stud of a receiver.
