Tavon Austin released by Buffalo Bills

According to Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News, the Buffalo Bills have released WR Tavon Austin as a result of a mixture of timing and injury issues.

Fantasy Impact

Since 2018, Austin has struggled to find a consistent landing spot, playing for four teams in the last five seasons. Most recently, Austin was with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2021 where he started three games for a depleted Jaguars receiving core. Even at age 32, Austin will likely find another job as a return specialist somewhere.

Tavon Austin signs with the Bills

Free agent WR Tavon Austin announced on social media Thursday that he has signed a contract with the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Impact

Austin, who was the eighth overall selection in the 2013 NFL Draft, has been unable to establish himself as a consistent fantasy option during his nine-year NFL career. In 2015, his third NFL season, Austin finished as the WR26 in PPR formats, but he has been unable to finish inside the top 50 WRs in any other season of his career. Given Austin’s age, lack of recent production, and uphill battle to earn playing time in the Bills’ offense, he isn’t expected to have any fantasy relevancy in 2022. Austin will join a WR room in Buffalo that has Stefon Diggs, Gabriel Davis, Jamison Crowder, Khalil Shakir, and Isaiah McKenzie.

Tavon Austin finds the end zone in Week 12

Tavon Austin caught both of his targets for 21 yards and a touchdown during the Jaguars 14-21 loss to the Falcons on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Austin saw a boost in usage with Jamal Agnew out and managed to find the end zone for the first time since 2019. Other than being happy for Austin, he operated behind Laquon Treadwell and it makes no sense to dig for value on this Jacksonville offense. Austin won't be a recommended fantasy play against the Rams in Week 13.

Tavon Austin lands on injured reserve

The Jaguars have placed wide receiver Tavon Austin on injured reserve due to a quadriceps injury.

Fantasy Impact

Austin initially made the Jaguars' 53-man roster out of camp but will now be forced out of action until at least Week 4. The veteran Swiss army knife is primarily a kick and punt returner, though he also logged 224 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns in 2019.
