St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 17.

Rams | Tavon Austin may play in Week 3

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 15:08:28 -0700

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin (knee) is dealing with a mild knee sprain but has a chance to play in Week 3, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will get a better idea about Austin's status as the practice week goes on. Austin could be limited by the injury if he is active for the game, so owners could look to use another wide receiver in their lineups.

Rams | Tavon Austin to miss time

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 10:40:51 -0700

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin (knee) has been diagnosed with a sprained medial collateral ligament and is expected to miss around two weeks, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Brian Quick and Chris Givens could get some added fantasy value because of the injury. Both could be options on FantasyScore this week depending on their price, but they could also be hard to count on because of the quarterback situation with the Rams.

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin (knee) sustained a knee injury during the team's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Austin will undergo more tests Monday, Sept. 15.

Rams | Sam Bradford out for season

Sun, 24 Aug 2014 13:10:07 -0700

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) is out for the season after an MRI revealed a torn left anterior cruciate ligament.

Fantasy Tip: Zac Stacy will be relied upon even heavier with Shaun Hill as the quarterback. Stacy is a low-end RB2. Tavon Austin's stock could take a slight hit, but he remains a solid WR4. Kenny Britt is still worth a late-round flier as a WR5.

Rams | Chris Givens falls down depth chart

Sun, 17 Aug 2014 23:31:25 -0700

St. Louis Rams WR Chris Givens has been surpassed on the depth chart by WRs Kenny Britt, Tavon Austin, Stedman Bailey and Brian Quick, and Givens may be a bubble in terms of final roster cuts.

Fantasy Tip: Givens has promise, but there is a logjam at the position. Bailey is suspended the first four games, and Givens has a chance to prove himself again. Givens is a final-round flier as a WR5 or WR6.

Rams | Tavon Austin discusses learning the game

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 20:48:21 -0700

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin admitted that he was lost as a rookie in 2013, struggling to pick up the playbook. The No. 8 overall pick said it was like a foreign language to him but added that now he has a much better grasp of the system. "I understand the plays, the depth, the routes, the splits and everything," Austin said. "I just feel good that I can make some plays. Definitely, the game's slowed down for me."

Fantasy Tip: The coaching staff is working in creative ways to get Austin the ball in space, but they also know he is not an every-down player and won't use him that way. He is a high-risk, high-reward WR3 in PPR leagues.

Rams | Expanding Tavon Austin's role

Tue, 24 Jun 2014 05:40:46 -0700

St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer hinted the team will expand WR Tavon Austin's role this season. "Moving him around to a lot of different spots," Schottenheimer said. "You'll see us hand him the ball, do some different things. He's playing so much faster just because he knows what we're doing. He has the system down cold."

Fantasy Tip: Austin's big-play ability makes him a WR3 with WR2 potential. He may frustrate you with consistency on a week-to-week basis, but his home run ability is undeniable.

Rams | Tavon Austin has a better understanding of the offense

Thu, 19 Jun 2014 10:27:24 -0700

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin has a much better understanding of the offense heading into 2014 than he did a year ago. "I understand coverages better, I understand the plays, the depth of my routes, the splits and everything, so I'm way better off right now," Austin said. "I'm just glad to come out here and make some plays to keep on going."

Rams | Happy with current WRs

Wed, 11 Jun 2014 09:53:56 -0700

The St. Louis Rams did not select a wide receiver with any of their 12 selections in this year's draft, and head coach Jeff Fisher said they are happy and confident with the group of young receivers they have on their roster. St. Louis ranked 29th in the league in receiving yards last year, 26th in yards per catch and were tied for 20th in receiving touchdowns. WR Tavon Austin came on strong late in his rookie year, and WRs Chris Givens and Brian Quick are expected to do more in their third seasons with QB Sam Bradford coming off an injury. WR Stedman Bailey will miss the first four games of the season due to a suspension, but the team also took a chance on WR Kenny Britt.

Fantasy Tip: Austin should be primed to take the next step in his sophomore season. One of the big reasons why the Rams' offense sputtered so much over the course of the season was because Bradford wasn't around. With a healthy Bradford, all of St. Louis' aerial weapons should benefit.
