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.
Signed a 3-year, $11.3 million dollar contract with the Raiders. Jones, 30, set a career high in yards (817) last season with Green Bay, scoring just 3 touchdowns after leading the NFL in touchdown catches (14) the previous year. He gives the Raiders a physical presence with an ability to win contested catches and stretch the field. Unfortunately, Jones going to quarterback-less Oakland could be a death knell for his fantasy outlook.

Matt Schaub will find James Jones and Jones has potential to way outperform his average draft pick.

The talent is there and he should have a much better season in year two
Should still find WR3 value in Oakland whether Schaub or Carr
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Touches need to be manufactured still but should only get better in year two.
Solid possession guy who Schaub should look to a lot. Probably WR3 but could chase WR2 value.

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.

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.

Can Brian Schottenheimer find ways to use Austin's game-breaking speed?
Oakland WRs are tough to peg, but Jones has a starting role nailed down.
