Austin played only 11 of 66 offensive snaps and rushed twice for just five yards during Sunday's 33-7 win over Houston.
Austin wasn't targeted in the passing game for a second consecutive week, and he has just seven receptions for 43 yards through nine games for the campaign. That's not exactly the usage fantasy owners are coveting from a wide receiver. At this stage of the season, it's pretty clear that Austin is primarily locked in as a change-of-pace option out of the backfield. While his speed and vision in space still enable him to be a big-play threat, he checks out as a low-floor, low-ceiling asset in the majority of settings because of his limited role.
Tavon Austin had zero receptions for zero yards Sunday in the Los Angeles Rams' 33-7 win over the Houston Texans. He added five rushes for two yards.
Austin rushed six times for 34 yards and finished with nine receiving yards during Sunday's 51-17 win over the Giants.
Austin wasn't credited with a target or reception in the contest and now has just seven catches for 43 yards this season. The speedster has done most of his damage on the ground with 31 carries for 169 rushing yards and a score. It's unlikely his involvement in the offense increases moving forward -- especially with the Rams averaging the most points per game in the league. As a result of his limited role, Austin is extremely difficult to rely on in the majority of fantasy settings.
