Rams | Tavon Austin doubtful for Week 13

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 15:09:59 -0800

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin (chest) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 2, and is listed as doubtful for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Austin was not able to practice this week, so there is a good chance that he will miss Week 13. Owners should still check on his status closer to game time but should have other options available. Kenny Britt probably will receive most of the targets among receivers and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues. Todd Gurley and Brian Quick can also be more involved in the passing game. Gurley should be a starting option in all leagues, while Quick probably can only be a flex option in deeper leagues.

Rams | Tavon Austin still not practicing

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 17:24:05 -0800

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin (chest) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen if Austin will play, but given his lackluster production in recent weeks, you may want to leave him on your bench in Week 13 regardless of his status.

Rams | Tavon Austin sits out

Wed, 30 Nov 2016 17:26:37 -0800

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin (chest) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Austin is in any danger of missing the team's Week 13 game, so owners will need to check on his status later in the week. He has been limited to eight catches in his last four games and has not posted more than 45 yards in any of those games. He could be a flex option in very deep leagues but can be avoided in most leagues.

Rams | Tavon Austin remains a ghost

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 13:30:36 -0800

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin caught two passes for 19 yards and carried the ball twice for 10 yards in Week 10 against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Tip: Austin is not playable at this point ... he cannot create plays on his own accord and is transparently used by the coaching staff.

Rams | Tavon Austin talks dissappointing season

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 08:15:49 -0800

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin said there is only so much he can do and that defenses are scheming to take him out of the game plan. Austin has 37 catches for 316 yards with two touchdowns and 63 rushing yards on 14 carries in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: This is partly true. Austin is terrible at creating his own yardage. A player so explosive should not have a career average of 9.1 yards per reception. He is a week-to-week lineup decision based on the matchup. Gamers in Week 10 can flex him with a mild degree of confidence.

Rams | Tavon Austin reaches end zone

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 10:45:31 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin caught 10 passes for 57 yards and one touchdown against the New York Giants in Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: Austin has been targeted at least 10 times in two of the last three games but has been held to under 60 yards in six of the seven games this season. He will continue to be the No. 1 receiver for the Rams and can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option for owners.

Rams | Tavon Austin does little in loss

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 18:25:33 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin posted three receptions for 24 yards in the Week 6 game against the Detroit Lions, and he added three runs for just two yards.

Fantasy Tip: The team wants to get the ball into Austin's hands, but Austin just cannot get into open spaces to take advantage of his blazing speed. He is only worth a look as a WR4 in deeper fantasy leagues at this point.

Rams | Tavon Austin totals 10 touches

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 22:52:08 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin posted seven receptions for 59 yards on 10 targets in the Week 5 game against the Buffalo Bills and he added three runs for 26 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Austin has 85 or more total yards from scrimmage in two of his past three games, as the team is starting find more ways to get the ball into the dynamic and versatile receiver's hands. Still, he remains more of a low-end WR3 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 6 against the Detroit Lions.

Rams | Tavon Austin, Case Keenum not in sync

Sat, 08 Oct 2016 23:33:03 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin has been targeted 35 times this season, which ranks in the NFL's top 20, but he has just 16 receptions for 159 yards and a touchdown. QB Case Keenum has absorbed some of the blame for misfiring on throws but sounds determined to get Austin involved, saying, "Anytime we've got him in the open field, I've got to get him the ball."

Fantasy Tip: Los Angeles' passing attack has been anemic, and Austin's inability to make things happen down the field is part of that. Until he and Keenum get on the same page, Austin is no better than an inconsistent WR4.
