Can Brian Schottenheimer find ways to use Austin's game-breaking speed?
I still believe in his talent, but his act seems to be wearing thin in Oakland.

The talent is there and he should have a much better season in year two
Talented but inconsistent receiver has WR2 upside
  
Tom Schriner

Rams coach Jeff Fisher said this off-season that he didn’t use receiver Tavon Austin enough as a rookie in 2013. He plans to correct that problem this year and we hope he follows through. Austin has plenty of potential with his speed and play-making and the Rams have a need for a dynamic receiver. But he was inconsistent as a rookie with just 40 catches for 418 yards and four touchdowns and nine carries for 151 yards and a touchdown. He had three games with 15-plus standard Fantasy points last year but also had 10 games with 5 points or less. We’d take a cautious but optimistic approach with Austin this year as a No. 4 Fantasy receiver with upside.
Denarius has the potential to be a quality Fantasy option, but he has to be more consistent with his production. He played well in 2012 with 51 catches for 741 yards and 7 touchdowns, but he saw his production decline last year with 46 catches for 695 yards and just 5 touchdowns. The Raiders upgraded at quarterback with the addition of Matt Schaub, and Moore also moves from the No. 1 receiver spot to No. 2 with the addition of James Jones. Rod Streater is also in the mix, so Moore is going to have to step up his play for Fantasy owners to notice. We don’t recommend drafting Moore in the majority of leagues, but if he starts off the season playing well then add him off the waiver wire.

Austin lost some of his fantasy appeal when Bradford was lost for the season, but I still think he can have an impact this year if the Rams will involve him more in the offense.

Touches need to be manufactured still but should only get better in year two.
Burner who is woefully inconsistent. Perhaps Schaub can help him realize his potential.

Rams OC Brian Schottenheimer says Tavon Austin is “playing so much faster just because he knows what we’re doing. He has the system down cold.” Austin elaborated that “everything looked like Spanish and sounded like Spanish to me [in 2013]” Austin is coming off a rough rookie campaign totaling just 418 yards with 4 TDs. Austin’s value will be adjusted during Pre-Season games based on his usage and understanding of the game.
