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.

Tavon Austin signing with Jaguars, per Garafolo

Per Mike Garafolo, the Jaguars are signing former Packers punt returner Tavon Austin.

Fantasy Impact

The former punt returner will be headed out to Jacksonville to return punts and kicks. Outside of some special teams plays, Austin offers no real fantasy value.

Tavon Austin working out for the Jets

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that FA WR Tavon Austin worked out for the Jets.

Fantasy Impact

Austin spent last season on the 49ers and the Packers. He only caught five passes for 20 yards. Even if he signs with the Jets, his fantasy value is pretty much nonexistent.

Tavon Austin hauls in two catches in Packers debut

Tavon Austin caught both of his targets for eight yards in the Packers’ 31-24 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Making his Packers’ debut, the gadget back nabbed a pair of receptions and returned a punt for Green Bay. He’s unlikely to see much volume as a receiver, and he’s most likely to make his mark on special teams.

Tavon Austin signs contract with the Packers

The Packers signed free agent WR Tavon Austin to a contract on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Austin participated in a tryout last Thursday and ultimately landed a deal in Green Bay. He signed with the 49ers earlier in the year, but was released on an injury settlement. He is fully recovered from a knee issue that bothered him in September. Austin will provide the Packers WR depth, but the former 2013 NFL First Round pick is not on the fantasy radar in 2020.
