Tavon Austin West Virginia WR
Mr. $12 Million Dollar Man himself, besides Todd Gurley last year, Austin was another key part of the Rams offense last year. . Last year, Austin had 52 receptions (Tied 61st in the NFL) and 473 receiving yards. (Tied 99th in the NFL). He also had combined for 434 yards on 52 carries, rushing last year. Yes rushing. Austin is a duel threat player, either it be as a RB or WR. Austin finished 3rd in receiving last year on the team, with finishing 2nd in rushing. Austin had more rushing yards than Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham combined.
Austin was targeted the most on the team last year with 86 targets, and caught 52 of them. However he only managed 473 yards. One of the lower averages of the team of 9.1 yards per catch. Depending how the Rams use Austin next year, it would be hard to see Austin receiving more than 1000 + yards. Austin is an all around player. Because of his size, he does not have the upper hand against the top secondary’s, but given open field he is deadly. Austin is one of the most talented players on the Rams offense, Top WR? Maybe.
