Rams OC: WR Tavon Austin has had a 'great offseason'

NFL.com - [Full Article]

"Tavon Austin's had a great offseason," new Rams OC Frank Cignetti said, via the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "It starts in the classroom. He's learning. He's paying attention. He's bringing it to the practice field.

"You just see it from his route running. What a difference. His effort, his attention to details. Every day out there, the guy's made plays."

Whether it's because paint-by-numbers former offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer couldn't maximize the receiver/running back hybrid's talents or because Austin lacks any semblance of tackle-breaking power, the development simply hasn't been there.

Fantasy Impact:

It's difficult to see Austin making much of a fantasy impact unless Cignetti's able to figure out a way to maximize his skill set.

Scouting Report

Week 17: Austin vs. Seahawks
Tavon Austin caught just one pass for 15 yards while also rushing three times for an addition 25 yards in the Rams' Week 16 loss to the Giants. Quarterback Shaun Hill missed a wide open Austin streaking down the sideline in the first half, instead deciding to break the pocket and find Kenny Britt for a modest gain. Hill then underthrew his receiver a few plays later, although Austin managed to draw a pass interference penalty when he tried to fight back towards the ball. Regardless, Austin's numbers have been underwhelming in his second season since being selected with the No. 8 overall pick in last year's draft. He continues to be a mere gadget in Brian Schottenheimer's offense. Leave him on your waiver wire for Week 17.
