Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Despite underwhelming results from last year’s corps and the lack of new additions, Rams coach Jeff Fisher says he doesn’t consider it a gamble to go with his current group of receivers. One reason for that may be Tavon Austin’s feeling that the game is starting to slow down for him after a rocky transition to the professional ranks last year.

“It’s all about getting comfortable,” Austin said, via the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “It was a pretty big adjustment for me at first. The playbook was different. The speed of the game was different. I eventually caught on and the game settled down.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Austin had a disappointing year by most accounts, but it wasn’t necessarily his fault. He had trouble staying on the field, playing just 50% of his team’s snaps. His FP/T (0.95) was respectable for a rookie, though it seemed like OC Brian Shottenheimer wasn’t sure how to utilize Austin’s skill set. HC Jeff Fisher said that he expects that the team will do a better job of that in 2014. In the end, Austin did lead the Rams’ WRs in catches (40).
