St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer hinted the team will expand WR Tavon Austin's role this season. "Moving him around to a lot of different spots," Schottenheimer said. "You'll see us hand him the ball, do some different things. He's playing so much faster just because he knows what we're doing. He has the system down cold."
Fantasy Tip: Austin's big-play ability makes him a WR3 with WR2 potential. He may frustrate you with consistency on a week-to-week basis, but his home run ability is undeniable.

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin has a much better understanding of the offense heading into 2014 than he did a year ago. "I understand coverages better, I understand the plays, the depth of my routes, the splits and everything, so I'm way better off right now," Austin said. "I'm just glad to come out here and make some plays to keep on going."

The St. Louis Rams did not select a wide receiver with any of their 12 selections in this year's draft, and head coach Jeff Fisher said they are happy and confident with the group of young receivers they have on their roster. St. Louis ranked 29th in the league in receiving yards last year, 26th in yards per catch and were tied for 20th in receiving touchdowns. WR Tavon Austin came on strong late in his rookie year, and WRs Chris Givens and Brian Quick are expected to do more in their third seasons with QB Sam Bradford coming off an injury. WR Stedman Bailey will miss the first four games of the season due to a suspension, but the team also took a chance on WR Kenny Britt.
Fantasy Tip: Austin should be primed to take the next step in his sophomore season. One of the big reasons why the Rams' offense sputtered so much over the course of the season was because Bradford wasn't around. With a healthy Bradford, all of St. Louis' aerial weapons should benefit.

St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said he expects WR Tavon Austin to improve this upcoming season, because he will have a full offseason to learn the offense. "I think another year in the program, in the offense, OTAs, training camp, you'll see more production. I think we'll do a better job of using him now that we know what he's capable of doing. Kind of looking forward to see him improve from year one to year two," Fisher said.

Fantasy Tip: Austin is no sure thing to play in the regular season finale against the Seattle Seahawks, a team he played well against earlier this year. Plan to go without him again this weekend.
