Rams' Tavon Austin: Plays two snaps in loss to Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin received just two offensive snaps and wasn't targeted during Saturday's 26-13 loss to the Falcons in the wild-card round.

After topping 50 receptions in consecutive seasons, Austin only received 22 targets in 2017. He was more involved in the rushing attack with a career-high 59 carries for 270 yards and a touchdown, but he only caught 13 passes for 47 yards. The additions of Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and Sammy Watkins pushed Austin down the receiver depth chart and almost entirely out of the offensive game plan. Austin is under contract through the 2021 season with a $42 million pact. However, there's now only $5 million of dead cap space tied to his deal. The Rams' brass are meeting to discuss Austin's future with the organization, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports, so considering his lack of playing time throughout the season, it wouldn't be surprising if the eighth overall selection from the 2013 draft isn't on the Week 1 roster next season.

Rams' Tavon Austin: More involved in Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin rushed four times for 24 yards and caught three of five targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 34-13 loss to San Francisco.

After seeing the field for just six offensive snaps last week, Austin was much more involved in Week 17. However, it's also because the Rams rested and limited a number of their starters. It's been a disastrous fantasy campaign for the speedster, as he never found a niche in first-year head coach Sean McVay's offense. There's a chance Austin can carve out a role in 2018, but it's probably best to take a wait-and-see approach in keeper/dynasty settings, and he's likely best viewed as a risky late-round target come draft season.

Rams' Tavon Austin: Rushes for 44 yards in road win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin rushed 10 times for 44 yards during Sunday's 42-7 win over Seattle.

The speedster's first carry came in the second quarter with the Rams ahead 13-0, and then he didn't touch the ball again until the game was entirely out of hand in the third quarter. Austin still only saw the field for 14 of 71 offensive plays, and he didn't receive a target for a second consecutive week. As a result, there aren't many fantasy settings where he should be relied on, and especially at this stage of the season.

Rams' Tavon Austin: Rushes for six yards Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin had one carry for six yards and had negative-nine receiving yards and a lost fumble in Sunday's loss to the Eagles.

Austin actually wasn't targeted by Jared Goff in the game, but the receiving yards and lost fumble came on the final play of the game as the Rams used laterals as a last ditch effort, and Austin was the unlucky man. The 26-year-old speedster continues to have a minimal impact despite the Rams' revamped offense, and has yet to reach 50 yards from scrimmage in a game this season.

Rams' Tavon Austin: Rushes for eight yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin rushed three times for eight yards and failed to haul in his lone reception during Sunday's 32-16 win over Arizona.

Austin's underwhelming season continues, and at this stage of the game, he's a low-end option in all fantasy settings. The 2013 first-round pick has been just targeted 17 times through 12 games, as Austin has been utilized more as a change-of-pace rusher with 44 totes for 196 yards on the campaign. The speedsters potential game-breaking ability in space hasn't materialized with head coach Sean McVay's calling the plays, and with Los Angeles 9-3 and eyeing the postseason, it's unlikely Austin becomes more involved in the offense over the finals weeks.
