Rams | Mike Thomas eyeing big role

Fri, 09 Jun 2017 21:18:38 -0700

Rams | Tavon Austin to sit out OTAs

Fri, 05 May 2017 12:34:36 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin (wrist) will miss OTAs after undergoing surgery on his left wrist but is expected to be ready for training camp, according to ESPN's Alden Gonzalez.

Fantasy Tip: It's a setback for Austin - a player new head coach Sean McVay wants to use in the same way he did DeSean Jackson in Washington. Austin's absence should open up more reps for rookie Josh Reynolds, who is perhaps the team's best downfield threat anyway.

Rams | Tavon Austin to become more of a deep threat?

Fri, 05 May 2017 10:14:09 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin is expected to establish himself as more of a downfield threat, similar to what DeSean Jackson for new head coach Sean McVay when he was the offensive coordinator for the Washington Redskins, according to ESPN's Alden Gonzalez.

Fantasy Tip: Austin has carried the ball 116 times (nearly three times more than any other receiver) and caught 75 passes behind the line of scrimmage (tied for second among receivers) over the last three years. Now, it appears McVay wants to see what the former first-round pick, who ran a 4.34 prior to getting drafted No. 8 overall in 2013, can do down the field. Expecting Austin to emulate Jackson may be too high of a standard to reach, but it does suggest McVay will use him more logically than Jeff Fisher ever did.

Rams | Tavon Austin could move outside

Sat, 29 Apr 2017 21:15:38 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin could move to the outside or be utilized more in the run game if WR Cooper Kupp is a better option as a slot receiver, according to beat writer Rich Hammond.

Fantasy Tip: The Rams have always struggled to find the best way to take advantage of Austin's game-changing speed, and the result has been an unreliable fantasy option dependent on breaking a long score. Austin is a WR4 who can be used as a Hail Mary flex play during bye weeks.

Rams | Tavon Austin gets into end zone

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 18:44:22 -0800

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin posted two grabs for 14 yards on seven targets in the Week 16 game against the San Francisco 49ers, and he added a 30-yard rushing score.

Fantasy Tip: Austin is a dynamic playmaker with speed to burn, but the Rams haven't been able to get him out into the open very much. If they can get better offensive line play and more stability at the quarterback position, Austin and Gurley would be the biggest beneficiaries going forward.

Rams | Tavon Austin fully practices

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 15:51:59 -0800

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin (chest) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 9, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Austin was not able to play in the last game but should see his normal playing time in Week 14. He has been held to under 50 yards in each of the last four games and probably should be avoided in a majority of the leagues.

Rams | Tavon Austin practicing Thursday

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 19:28:03 -0800

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin (chest) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Austin is on track to return after missing Week 13. He has underwhelmed all year, but he could be worth a roll of the dice in DFS games against an Atlanta defense that has allowed the most passing yards and second-most passing scores.

Rams | Tavon Austin ruled out for Week 13

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 08:11:48 -0800

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin (chest) will not play in Week 13's game against the New England Patriots, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Austin was listed as doubtful on the injury report and did not practice at all during the week. Kenny Britt should see most of the targets for Los Angeles and should be viewed as a WR3 or flex option in most fantasy leagues, while Todd Gurley and Brian Quick should also see more involvement in the passing game. Gurley is a viable starting option in all formats, while Quick is worthy of consideration as a flex player in deeper seasonal leagues.
