Rams' Tavon Austin: Plays just nine snaps in Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin rushed twice for no yardage and didn't receive a target during Sunday's 27-17 win over Jacksonville.

After scoring his first touchdown of the season last week, the speedster was on the field for just nine of 59 offense snaps and uninvolved in the passing attack Sunday. Austin has garnered only 10 targets through six games, as he's been utilized mainly as a change-of-pace rusher under first-year head coach Sean McVay. Unless his role changes dramatically, and in short order, this has the makings of a lost season. Austin checks out as nothing more than a low-floor, low-ceiling flier at this stage of the game.

Rams' Tavon Austin: Scores rushing touchdown Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin caught three of five targets for 14 yards Sunday against the Seahawks. He also carried six times for 27 yards and a touchdown while losing a fumble.

Austin couldn't generate much efficiency on the ground or through the air, but he got the scoring started with an explosive 27-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. The nine touches were a season high for Austin, but the results illustrate that he is still fairly reliant on big plays for tangible fantasy value. He should remain in this utility role looking ahead to the Week 6 matchup with the Jaguars.

Rams' Tavon Austin: Active in rushing attack Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin rushed six times for 48 yards during Sunday's 35-30 win over Dallas. His lone reception went for minus-2 yards.

Dallas struggled to contain the Los Angeles running game all afternoon Sunday, and Austin had his best showing of the season, as a result. Still, the speedster isn't involved enough in the offensive game plan to be a reliable fantasy option. He's only caught two passes and rushed for just 81 yards all season. It's worth noting that Austin nursed concussion symptoms last week, but at this stage of the game, he's nothing more than a periphery piece of the Rams' offense. The schedule toughens up over the coming weeks, too.

Rams' Tavon Austin: Fine to face Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin (concussion) was a full participant at Friday's practice and doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Dallas.

With Sammy Watkins (concussion) also cleared, Austin likely will have to settle for a role as a gadget player and return specialist. The latter isn't even a guarantee, considering he's struggled with ball security on special teams.

Rams' Tavon Austin: Full practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin (concussion) was a full practice participant Thursday, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.

Like fellow wideout Sammy Watkins, Austin is progressing through the protocol for head injuries at a steady rate, with 10 days between games helping both players' causes. Austin has seen the field for only 31 offensive snaps through three games, though, making him a fringe consideration under the best of circumstances.
