Rams | OC impressed with Tavon Austin

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 07:59:08 -0700

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin was impressive during the offseason workouts, according to offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti. "Tavon Austin's had a great offseason," Cignetti said. "It starts in the classroom. He's learning. He's paying attention. He's bringing it to the practice field. You just see it from his route running. What a difference. His effort, his attention to details. Every day out there, the guy's made plays."

Fantasy Tip: Austin is expected to become more involved in the offense this season. He had 31 catches for only 242 yards and zero touchdowns in 15 games in 2014. Austin could be an option in the late-rounds of drafts this season but will not be a weekly starting option.

Rams | Tavon Austin ready to step up?

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 19:26:32 -0700

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin said that he isn't worried about his struggles in his first two NFL seasons and is ready to step up in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Austin has elite speed, but the Rams haven't figured out the best way to involve him in the offense just yet. Still, he has big-play potential, and he is worth gambling on when you fill out your bench during the later rounds of drafts.

Rams | Tavon Austin to be more involved

Fri, 13 Feb 2015 14:44:59 -0800

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin will be more involved in the offense next season, according to offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti.

Fantasy Tip: Austin did not have a big impact in the passing game this past season with 34 yards as his season-high in receiving yards. He did rush for two touchdowns and averaged 6.2 yards per carry. Owners probably should consider Austin as a No. 4 wide receiver with upside in drafts next season.

Rams | Rams to decide on Chris Givens' future

Sun, 08 Feb 2015 17:19:14 -0800

St. Louis Rams WR Chris Givens is scheduled to have a base salary of $1.574 million with a cap count of $1.698 million. The team might deem it too much if Givens is the fifth receiver in a group with WRs Kenny Britt, Brian Quick, Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey. Releasing Givens would save the team $1.574 million.

Fantasy Tip: Whether he stays or goes Givens is unlikely to be much of an impact player for fantasy owners in 2015.

Rams | Tavon Austin quiet in loss

Sun, 05 Oct 2014 18:33:13 -0700

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin (knee) was active in Week 5 game against the Philadelphia Eagles, and he had two receptions for 33 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Austin entered the season as the team's primary target, but Brian Quick now appears to sit atop the depth chart at this point. Austin can be a downfield threat, but he has a ways to go before fantasy owners can trust him on a regular basis.

Rams | Tavon Austin questionable

Fri, 03 Oct 2014 13:50:30 -0700

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin (knee) was a limited participant in practice Friday, Oct. 3, and he is listed as questionable for Week 5 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Austin ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has high-risk, high-reward potential as a flex play in FantasyScore contests in Week 5 against the shaky Eagles' defense. You'll want to make sure he is active before finalizing your rosters, though.

Rams | Tavon Austin limited in practice

Thu, 02 Oct 2014 18:53:43 -0700

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin (knee) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 2.

Fantasy Tip: If Austin does suit up, he is still a risky play at FantasyScore in Week 5. He will take up just 6.2% of the cap ($3,100), but even at his small price tag, Austin could struggle to make an impact in a St. Louis offense that is still trying to figure out its identity with Austin Davis under center.

Rams | Tavon Austin limited

Wed, 01 Oct 2014 14:24:16 -0700

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Austin getting some work in early in the week has to be a good sign for his availability in Week 5. Check back later in the week before you commit to him in FantasyScore.
