3. Bold Prediction: Tavon Austin will have 1,000+ total yards (Receiving + Rushing) 

Tavon Austin is entering his 3rd season with the Rams and has yet to produce solid numbers. The Rams are trying to get creative in the ways they use the speedy receiver, and this year they will finally reap the rewards of their labor. In two years Austin has totaled 660 receiving yards, and 375 Rushing yards, not great. However, Austin in open space is always dangerous for opposing defenses as he averages 9.3 yards a catch and 8.3 yards a carry. Give Austin the ball and he will produce. That is excatly what the Rams will do this upcoming season. Austin will have a monster year as he totals 1,000+ total yards for the Rams. Expect about 800 yards receiving and another 200 yards rushing.
