Cowboys WR Miles Austin, Jets RB Chris Ivory ruled out due to hamstring injuries

This is what happens when a couple of players with a history of hamstring injuries suffer another hamstring injury. Quick recoveries certainly don't happen. It's no surprise that Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin @MilesAustinIII and Jets running back Chris Ivory @ivory_29 have been ruled out of their respective games this weekend due to their balky hamstrings. Neither player practiced at all this week.

Fantasy Analysis:

The lack of any practice this week or any reporting that they were even close to practicing doesn't bode well for the Week 5 status of either player.
Bilal Powell is basically the Jets' only running back right now. He touched the ball 29 times for 158 total yards last week versus Buffalo. Although this week's matchup against Tennessee is tougher, Powell is a solid RB2 because he is going to get a lot of carries once again. One thing to keep in mind is that running back Mike Goodson @GoodNplenty33 will come off of suspension after this game.
Rookie Terrance Williams @TerranceWill2 is expected to start in Austin's place, but he is only worth a thought in the deepest leagues. The Chargers have allowed the most fantasy points to quarterbacks and the second-most receiving yards to WRs, but it's probably going to be the Dez Bryant @DezBryant and Jason Witten @JasonWitten show on Sunday in San Diego, leaving scraps for everyone else.
