Rams' Tavon Austin: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Austin was limited at Wednesday's practice due to a shoulder injury, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports.

Austin has been targeted a fair amount this season, and while his catch rate (14 of 29) falls short of 50 percent, he's sustained relevance due to his use as both a pass catcher and rusher. Wednesday's limited practice is a tad concerning, but the fourth-year pro has two sessions remaining to allay fears about his Week 4 availability.

Rams' Tavon Austin: Puts up 104 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin caught five of eight targets for 82 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 37-32 win at Tampa Bay. He also ran two times for 22 yards.

As usual, Austin was involved throughout, but he didn't make much of an impact until he scored from 43 yards out with just under five minutes to play. The touchdown was Austin's first of the season, as the Rams had struggled to generate much offense in their previous two games. The versatile wideout is always a threat to score, however, with his speed and play-making ability. He'll have a tough test in Week 4, facing the Cardinals at University of Phoenix Stadium.

Rams' Tavon Austin: Snags five catches for 50 yards Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Austin caught five passes (on nine targets) for 50 yards and added two rushes for six yards in Sunday's win over the Seahawks.

While Austin's stat line was not eye-popping, he did well to rebound from an awful Week 1 performance where he reeled in just one-third of his targets. The Rams' wide receiving corps is perhaps one of the least reliable in the league for fantasy production, and, even though Austin is Los Angeles' No. 2 wide receiver, his fantasy production will likely continue to be jeopardized as long as so many questions remain regarding Case Keenum and the Rams' quarterback situation. Start with caution.

Rams' Tavon Austin: Signs four-year extension with Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rams and Austin agreed to a four-year, $42 million contract extension Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

This is quite the investment for a player who hasn't surpassed 500 yards receiving in any of his three NFL seasons. On the one hand, he's a threat as a receiver, rusher, and returner, totaling 10 touchdowns in all regards last season. However, his career yards per target mark (5.7) isn't appealing in the slightest, meaning he must contribute in other realms in order to sustain relevance. In the end, his cause will be helped by a relative lack of talent in the receiving corps in Los Angeles.

Rams' Tavon Austin: Gets one carry in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin had one carry for three yards in Saturday's preseason opener against the Cowboys.

Austin also received one target but didn't haul it in. With the exception of one partially-missed practice due to cramping, the multi-dimensional weapon has enjoyed a healthy training camp as he prepares for his fourth NFL season. A repeat of last year's 10 touchdowns would be a lot to ask, but Austin should have a similar role in a St. Louis offense that only has room to improve.
