Rams | Pharoh Cooper locked into starting role?

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 20:24:08 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Pharoh Cooper, WR Kenny Britt and WR Tavon Austin are currently the top three receivers, head coach Jeff Fisher said.

Fantasy Tip: The Rams' run-first offense won't do him any favors, but with Cooper set to be on the field in three-receiver sets, he could be worth a late-round gamble in PPR formats.

Rams | Tavon Austin cramping up

Sun, 31 Jul 2016 18:13:36 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin (leg) was dehydrated a suffered a leg cramp during practice Sunday, July 31, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.

Fantasy Tip: If you are an Austin owner, you can breathe a sigh of relief. He came into his own as a versatile offensive weapon last year, and you should feel confident drafting him as a WR3 in 2016.

Rams | Coach has high hopes for Tavon Austin

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 10:08:05 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin may be able to double his reception totals in 2016 because opposing defenses will look to stop RB Todd Gurley, according to head coach Jeff Fisher. Austin finished the 2015 season with 52 receptions for 473 yards and five touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Austin will have a solid role in the passing game this upcoming season, but Fisher may be too optimistic with his projection. Austin should be an attractive No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for owners because he also produces in the running game, which helps his fantasy value.

Rams | Tavon Austin's option exercised

Mon, 02 May 2016 11:28:30 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin's fifth-year option was picked up Monday, May 2, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Austin has had a relatively disappointing career so far for being a top-10 draft pick. He has elite speed and play-making ability, though, and is still worth low-end WR3 or high-end WR4 consideration even with rookie QB Jared Goff.

Rams | Tavon Austin may have option picked up

Sun, 01 May 2016 14:06:26 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin is expected to have his fifth-year option exercised, but the team hopes to sign him to a long-term extension.

Fantasy Tip: Austin finished the 2015 season with 473 receiving yards, 434 rushing yards and nine touchdowns. Austin should be a popular target for Jared Goff in 2016 and could be a middle-round option in most fantasy leagues.

Rams | Tavon Austin struggles in Week 16

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 19:35:49 -0800

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin had three catches for 16 yards and three carries for 12 yards in a 23-17 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Austin has used his versatility to score in a variety of ways this season, but when he doesn't find the end zone, he typically doesn't have the yardage to fall back on. He is a high-risk, high-reward play at FantasyScore.

Rams | Tavon Austin does it all

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 21:18:54 -0800

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin finished with three catches for 31 yards and a touchdown and four rushes for 32 yards and a score in a 31-23 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: It was the second time this season that Austin ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has run for a score and caught a touchdown pass in the same game, and he is up to 10 total touchdowns. He doesn't pile up a ton of yards, which can leave him prone to some duds, but his speed and touchdown potential give him some intriguing upside at FantasyScore.

Rams | Tavon Austin gets seven touches

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 18:34:28 -0800

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin had just three receptions for 19 yards in the Week 14 game against the Detroit Lions, but he was effective in the rushing game with four runs for 40 yards.

Fantasy Tip: The Rams try to get the ball into the hands of Austin, but the quarterback play is so shaky that he simply isn't worth the risk anymore.

Rams | Tavon Austin leads STL offense

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 15:39:09 -0800

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin had four carries for 63 yards and caught six passes for 33 yards in a 31-7 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: Austin ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) had 60 of those rushing yards on one carry, so these numbers are a little misleading. The impoverished state of the St. Louis offense showed through in this game. Austin's price is still a little too high for most FantasyScore players.
