Austin was handed a first start of the season against Everton in Gameweek 13. He responded with a brace and a 13-point return.
His underlying statistics in these matches are impressive.
Despite being limited to a seven-minute cameo at the Etihad Stadium, Austin has produced eight shots in the opposition penalty area in the last three Gameweeks.
Indeed, over the season as a whole, Austin is averaging a shot every 21 minutes.
Austin will face Arsenal in Gameweek 16.
