Rams see big jump coming for Tavon Austin


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher displayed no concern about receiver/returner Tavon Austin falling short of expectations as a rookie, reports ESPN.com. Fisher expressed confidence Austin will take a big step forward in 2014.

“We’re not disappointed in what his production was last year at all," Fisher said. "One of the things that was misleading was he had two or three returns called back -- one against Dallas --and then he got hurt. 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."

Tavon Austin looking at tough matchup Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Rams wide receiver Tavon Austin is facing a tough matchup Week 14 against the Cardinals.

Arizona has done a solid job against wide receivers, limiting them to 17.17 Fantasy points per game. Though the team has given up 22 passing touchdowns in 12 games, only eight have been thrown to wide receivers. Tight ends have been a much better bet against Arizona.

The Rams have attempted to put Austin in good spots lately, and he's been able to flash some big play ability. Though he's been successful, Austin hasn't been a major part of the passing game. Over the past three games, he's caught just eight balls. Despite the big plays, he can't be viewed as a dependable Fantasy asset. 


Tavon Austin held in check Week 13


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Rams wide receiver Tavon Austin endured a rough performance despite being heavily targeted during Sunday's loss to the 49ers in Week 13.

Austin was limited one catch for a gain of 4 yards and a 10-yard run in the first half. He was targeted seven times and finished the game with four catches for 25 yards. He also had one rush for 10 yards in a 23-13 defeat.

Austin has just six catches for 64 yards since his 138-yard, two-touchdown performance in Week 11. He'll look to bounce back in Week 14 at Arizona.


Tavon Austin could be hit-or-miss against 49ers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2013) Rams wide receiver Tavon Austin will look to keep rolling in a tough matchup at San Francisco in Week 13.

Austin has been hit-or-miss this season, but lately he's been making up for his slow start. He broke for a 65-yard rushing touchdown in Week 12, and a pair of receiving touchdowns in Week 11. Outside of that long touchdown run, he has four receptions for 177 yards and two touchdowns over his last two games.

Austin will be facing a San Francisco defense that has surrendered 10.8 yards per reception, which is the seventh fewest allowed in the league. Opposing wide receivers have scored 17.36 points per game in standard CBSSports.com Fantasy leagues.

Given his recent success, it's a bit surprising that Austin has had only four catches over his last two games. He's only valuable if he gets in the end zone, so consider him a decent flex option in most Fantasy formats for Week 13.

Tavon Austin comes through with another big play


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer

The big run was the fourth scoring play of 50 yards or more for Austin in the last two games. In Week 10, Austin ran a punt back 98 yards for a touchdown, while scoring on passing plays of 57 and 81 yards. 

The Rams face the 49ers in Week 13.
