St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 20, and is questionable for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Your best move is to avoid the game-time-decision hassle go with another option as Austin missed the Week 15 win over the Saints and has a combined 7 receptions for 73 yards since Week 10.

Updating a previous report, St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said Monday, Dec. 9, that WR Tavon Austin (ankle) is considered day to day this week.
Huddle Up: Austin continues to rip off big plays -- his 56-yard run Sunday being the latest -- but his limited touches and targets still don't justify a starting assignment in most standard-size fantasy leagues.

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin posted six receptions in his regular season debut in Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals, finishing with 41 yards.
Huddle Up: The Rams are certainly trying to get the ball into their talented rookie's hands, which is comforting news for those fantasy owners who spent an early pick on Austin's potential.

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford said Thursday, June 6, that he has been impressed by the team's young group of wide receivers, and he has already noticed tremendous improvement. 'It's definitely come a long way since two, three weeks ago when we first started with those rookies,' Bradford said. 'I've been really impressed by some of the young guys that we've had -- (WR Tavon Austin) and (WR Stedman Bailey) -- I though they've done a great job. We're asking them to play a lot of different positions right now. Of course there's still mistakes, but for the most part they've been extremely sharp.'
Huddle Up: St. Louis is now West Virginia West with Bradford and the Rams banking on the 2 Mountaineer rookies who combined to catch an eye-popping 228 passes for 2,911 yards and 37 TDs from QB Geno Smith last season.

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin has been taking some handoffs during organized team activities . Austin rushed for 643 yards and three touchdowns on 72 carries last season at West Virginia.
Huddle Up: Austin finished his 4 years at WVU with 109 rushes for 1,031 yards, including 72 for 643 (8.9 average last season). The 5-foot-8, 174- pound cat-quick receiver will find defenses to be a little faster and formidable at this level, but the rookie is a bona fide dual threat in the mode of the Seahawks' Percy Harvin.
