2014 Outlook: Quality Backup

Last updated on Jul-09-2014 by Brad Kruse

Tavon Austin had a disappointing rookie year. This is especially true for fantasy owners who thought his dynamic athleticism would translate into an immediate fantasy impact. He was talked up a lot during last year's preseason, but the Rams couldn't seem to figure out how to effectively use his talents. He actually averaged more yards per rush (16.8) than yards per catch (10.5). One of his five touchdowns also came from the ground game. Austin is a very talented weapon on offense and by no means should he be dismissed as a bust. That said, the Rams need to extend their creativity in how to get him the ball in space and Austin needs to better grasp the playbook and the way defenses cover him. Last year, Austin played less than half of the team's snaps, yet he had the second-highest target count on the team (69). He also missed the final three games of the season. Austin should see a bump in his performance due to more targets and a better understanding of how to carve up his opponents. If he can stay healthy and improve on his yards per catch, he will warrant consideration as a WR3 who can be drafted like a WR4 (99.1 ADP).
