Rams | Tavon Austin doing little with a lot

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 13:09:03 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin is seventh among wide receivers with 21 targets through two weeks, but he has caught only nine passes for 63 yards.

Fantasy Tip: The volume is there, but Austin just hasn't gotten things going yet. The Rams as a whole have been stagnant on offense, which is a large part of Austin's early struggles. He has more value in return yardage leagues, but don't give up on him just yet. He faces a Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense that has yielded five touchdowns to wide receivers this year.

Rams | Five touches for Tavon Austin

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 22:54:02 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin collected four receptions for 13 yards in Week 1 against the San Francisco 49ers and he added one run for two yards.

Fantasy Tip: It was an ugly night for the Rams offense, and Austin couldn't shake free in the mostly horizontal offensive attack. He has WR2 ability in fantasy leagues, but with shaky quarterback play he is more like a WR4 right now.

Rams | Tavon Austin lands huge extension

Sat, 27 Aug 2016 15:38:32 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin is close to signing a four-year extension worth $42 million, including $30 million guaranteed, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: For an offense bereft of playmakers in the passing game, the Rams had little choice but to lock up Austin. Still, it seems like a pretty good chunk of change for a receiver who had as many carries last year as receptions (52 apiece, both career highs). The size of this contract suggests Los Angeles will continue finding ways to feed him the ball into space in order to take some pressure off Todd Gurley. While he figures to be inconsistent in fantasy again this year, he's a serviceable WR3 in most leagues.

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 | Tavon Austin carted off

Sun, 31 Jul 2016 17:38:33 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin (leg) was carted off the practice field with an apparent leg injury Sunday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: If the injury turns out to be serious, fantasy owners will need to keep an eye on Brian Quick, Mike Thomas and Pharoh Cooper to see if one of them can emerge as a fantasy asset.

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.
