Depth Chart
The Rams wide receiver group was among the worst, if not the very worst group in the league this past season. The unit combined for just 11 total touchdown receptions – fewest of any group in the league. One player did stand out and that was former top 10 NFL draft pick Tavon Austin.

Austin led the team with 52 receptions and five receiving touchdowns. While he finished third on the team in receiving yardage, the man who led the team in that department, tight end Jared Cook, is now in Green Bay. Kenny Britt (681 rec yds) also finished ahead of Austin in yardage, but his total usage was not anywhere near that of Austin, especially when you consider that the Rams found additional ways to get the ball into their explosive receiver’s hands.

In addition to his 52 receptions, Austin also carried the ball 52 times – something that is almost unprecedented from a wide receiver in today’s NFL. He was extremely efficient with those carries as well, sporting a ridiculous 8.3 yards per carry and adding four touchdowns. Those numbers might suggest that the Rams will look to get him more carries, but the reality is that Austin’s body is simply not built to carry the ball much more often than what he did in 2015.

Still, even if he doesn’t touch the ball much as much, this coaching staff has proven that they are enamored with Austin’s talent and will find ways to get him the ball even if he is having an “off” game as a receiver. That makes him an intriguing option with a relatively high floor in comparison to players who are being selected near him in the middle rounds of redraft leagues.
