Rams WR spots up for grabs

Tuesday, August 30, 2016, 5:52pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Competition for the Rams final wide receiver spots appear wide open heading into the final preseason game, against the Vikings.

The shoulder injury sustained by No. 3 receiver Pharoh Cooper, who is expected to miss at least the first regular-season game, has created some uncertainty beyond Kenny Britt, Tavon Austin and Cooper.

Fantasy Impact:

Four undrafted rookies -- Paul McRoberts, Nelson Spruce, Mike Thomas and Duke Williams -- remain in a battle. So do Austin Hill and Bradley Marquez, who has fully recovered from his ankle injury. And veteran Brian Quick could be on the bubble due to prior drops, the story said.

Scouting Report

Week 3 at Tampa Bay
Tavon Austin caught 5-of-9 targets for 50 yards in the Rams’ Week 2 win over the Seahawks. It was a more productive day for the receiver than the 4-13-0 stat line that he posted against the 49ers in Week 1, but 27 of those 50 yards also came on one catch. Rob Boras continues to target Austin in the passing game, but the results from those targets are pitiful. Ranked as our WR55 for Week 3, avoid Austin in Tampa.
