    News

    Tavon Austin had zero receptions for zero yards Thursday in the Los Angeles Rams' 41-39 win over the San Francisco 49ers. He added three rushes for 14 yards.

    Impact

    Austin left late in the game and was evaluated for a possible concussion that threatens his availability for next week's matchup at Dallas. That still shouldn't affect his fantasy outlook, as the first-round bust has had a minimal role in the Rams' new-look offense thus far.

    News

    Austin was placed in concussion protocol according to head coach Sean McVay, NFL.com reports.

    Impact

    Austin left the game late in the fourth quarter with the head injury, short after Sammy Watkins (concussion) was taken back to the locker room. With both Austin and Watkins sidelined for the moment, the Rams will rely on Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp as the top two wideouts. The long weekend will give Austin a chance to rest, but he'll still need to pass protocol testing before he can take the field.

    News

    Austin is being evaluated for a concussion, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Impact

    Austin is not the only Rams' wideout to suffer a head injury, as Sammy Watkins was also taken to the locker room to be evaluated. Austin ends the night with three rushes for 14 yards and no receptions, but did fumble a kick return. Look for more updates on his status to come Friday.

    News

    Austin rushed twice for three yards and caught one of three targets for five yards during Sunday's 27-20 loss to Washington.

    Impact

    Austin only saw the field for nine of 50 offensive snaps, so his role in the offense has been predictable through two weeks. As a result, defenses have been able to account for him easily. He has the game-breaking ability to be a weapon for the Rams, but Austin isn't receiving the touches or targets to be a reliable fantasy asset right now. Additionally, quarterback Jared Goff has spread the ball around through the first two weeks of the season. It's difficult to trust Austin as a starting option in most fantasy settings heading into a Week 3 matchup against San Francisco.

    Tavon Austin had one reception for five yards Sunday in the Los Angeles Rams' 27-20 loss to the Washington Redskins. He added two rushes for three yards.

    Impact

    Now the Rams' No. 4 receiver and merely a gadget player, the 2013 first-round bust can be safely dropped from all fantasy leagues that don't count return yardage.
