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.

Rams | Tavon Austin bottled up in loss

Sun, 22 Nov 2015 15:58:27 -0800

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin was held to just one reception for five yards in the Week 11 game against the Baltimore Ravens. He was targeted five times, and he also had one run for 16 yards while losing a fumble on special teams.

Fantasy Tip: Austin has been a boom or bust player this season. When he is bad, he is really bad. With a murky quarterback situation in St. Louis, it's best to go another way for fantasy purposes if you can help it.

Rams | Tavon Austin disappears in loss

Sun, 15 Nov 2015 18:52:36 -0800

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin had two receptions for five yards in the Week 10 game against the Chicago Bears. He was targeted four times.

Fantasy Tip: Austin was bottled up, as the Bears took away the downfield plays. With the addition of Wes Welker to the offense, there will be even fewer targets to go around for the wide receiver corps in St. Louis.

Rams | Tavon Austin runs wild

Sun, 08 Nov 2015 16:54:13 -0800

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin had four catches for 15 yards, and he had eight carries for 66 yards in a 21-18 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: Austin ($6,700, 13.6% of cap) has been doing enough damage as a receiver and a runner to stay relevant, but there are certainly safer options available in the same price range at FantasyScore.

Rams | New career high for Tavon Austin

Sun, 01 Nov 2015 17:47:22 -0800

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin had four catches for 98 yards and a touchdown and three carries for 21 yards and a touchdown in a 27-6 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 8, and he now has a career-high seven touchdowns for the year.

Fantasy Tip: Austin ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) keeps finding ways to reach the end zone, but he is still a boom-or-bust option at FantasyScore because such a large portion of his value depends on him scoring a touchdown.

Rams | Tavon Austin ready to play

Sun, 25 Oct 2015 09:12:05 -0700

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin (hamstring) is officially active for the Week 7 game against the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Austin's ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) injury will affect his play, but owners can still consider him as a starting option since he should receive several targets.
