    Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin may be able to double his reception totals in 2016 because opposing defenses will look to stop RB Todd Gurley, according to head coach Jeff Fisher. Austin finished the 2015 with 52 receptions for 473 yards and five touchdowns.

    Huddle Up: An uptick for Austin wouldn't surprise, though it's tough to see any receiver in a Jeff Fisher offense approaching triple-digit catches. Mark it down as typical offseason coach-speak and move along.

    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.

    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.

  • Posted: 5/20/2016 11:23am ET

    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.

  • Posted: 5/20/2016 11:23am ET

    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.

  • Posted: 5/20/2016 11:23am ET

    St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 12.

    Huddle Up: Friday suddenly looms as a key day for the big-play rookie wideout who has missed two straight days of practice but has not missed a game this season.

  • Posted: 5/20/2016 11:23am ET

    St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said Sunday, Dec. 15, that the team hopes to have WR Tavon Austin (ankle) back for the Week 16 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Monitor his status throughout the week, in case you are desperate for Week 16.

  • Posted: 5/20/2016 11:23am ET

    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.

  • Posted: 5/20/2016 11:23am ET

    St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 25.

    Huddle Up: Austin has missed the last two games and is uncertain for Sunday's finale against Seattle. He's off the fantasy radar until next season.

  • Posted: 5/20/2016 11:23am ET

    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.'

    Huddle Up: The 8th overall pick in the 2013 draft started strong with 18 catches for 118 yards and 2 TDs in his first 3 games, but tallied only 22-300-4 over the remainder of the season. He did however, rack up 151 rushing yards and a TD on 9 rushes and has the play-making skills to pay off big time as a late-round pickup in drafts this summer.

  • Posted: 5/20/2016 11:23am ET

    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.'

    Huddle Up: That's the role many envisioned for Austin out of the gate, but it never materialized during his rookie season. With a year of NFL experience under his belt, Austin may now be ready for the larger, Percy Harvin-like multipurpose workload--and with it, of course, the accompanying jump in fantasy value.

    St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin (knee) sustained a knee injury during the team's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Austin will undergo more tests Monday, Sept. 15.

    Huddle Up: More injury issues for the Rams, and another reason for the talented yet enigmatic Austin to fail to live up to his potential.

  • Posted: 5/20/2016 11:23am ET

    St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin (knee) is dealing with a mild knee sprain but has a chance to play Week 3, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.

    Huddle Up: The second-year wideout is off to a slow pass-catching start with only 4 targets, 3 catches and 34 yards through 2 games, and is going to have to get healthy and show something before he belongs on the fantasy radar.

  • Posted: 5/20/2016 11:23am ET

    St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin will be more involved in the offense next season, according to offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti.

    Huddle Up: Austin's total touches climbed from 49 to 67 in his second season while his receptions (40-31) and receiving yardage (418-242) took dips. In short, a lot more needs to be seen from 2013's eighth overall pick before he can be trusted in any sort of fantasy format.

  • Posted: 5/20/2016 11:23am ET

    St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin caught three passes for 41 yards and a TD and added 32 yards and a TD on the ground Thursday, Dec. 17 in a 31-23 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Austin had been quiet, tallying one TD over his previous six games after scoring six in his first seven outings, but he going on the first possession catching a 17-yard pass from Case Keenum and then scoring on a 21-yard reverse in the third quarter -- his fourth rushing score and ninth overall this season.

  • Posted: 5/20/2016 11:23am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: Austin has yet to live up to his eighth-overall pick status, but did have his most productive season yet a year ago with 104 touches, 907 yards from scrimmage and nine TDs.
