2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
It would be hard to find a player who has been more disappointing to a team than the No. 8 overall pick from the 2013 NFL Draft, Tavon Austin. Austin, a small but ridiculously speedy young receiver who drew comparisons to Randall Cobb and DeSean Jackson coming out of college, has been less than spectacular during his NFL run. After making just 40 receptions for 418 yards and four touchdowns during his rookie season, it would have been hard for Austin to not make significant improvements to those numbers in his sophomore year. Despite the odds and two extra games played, however, Austin wasnít able to do it as he saw his numbers as a receiver drop across the board, down to 31 receptions for 242 yards and zero touchdowns. While quarterback play has something to do with that, itís now becoming increasingly obvious that Austin does not have the elite skills needed to succeed in this league.

With Austinís receiving abilities in question, the team opted to find unique ways to get the ball into his hands in 2014 as they gave him 36 carries, up from the nine carries he had as a rookie. He was quite productive with his rushing attempts averaging 6.2 yards per carry including two touchdowns. Unfortunately, reports out of St. Louis indicate the team is looking at Austin as exclusively at wide receiver heading into the 2015 season. Heíll still likely get some carries on end-around plays, but his carry totals will almost certainly be closer to the nine he had in 2013 than the 36 he had in 2014. At the moment, Austin is undraftable even in deeper leagues. It doesnít seem probable he will be given a starting role other than a punt returner and despite the possibility of the occasional big play in that department; he doesnít represent much fantasy value. Perhaps he and Nick Foles will develop a chemistry that didnít arise with the teamís previous quarterbacks, but that will be something that fantasy owners can wait and grab off the waiver wire.
