Tavon Austin Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

The Bills have signed WR Tavon Austin. We'd bet on this being a "camp body" situation. Buffalo already has Jamison Crowder to likely lead slot-WR duties, with Isaiah McKenzie, Marquez Stevenson and 5th-round rookie Khalil Shakir all fitting a similar mold. Stevenson has reportedly had some struggles at OTAs, so there could be competition between him and Austin. Even in that case, though, the winner would be far from fantasy relevance.

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark has been placed on IR and will miss the rest of the season with his fractured ankle. Tavon Austin somewhat unbelievably stepped in as Jacksonville's #3 WR after Chark exited Thursday night's game in Cincinnati, but we wouldn't bother adding him to fantasy rosters. WRs Marvin Jones and Laviska Shenault should pick up extra volume with Chark out of the picture

Former Rams WR Torry Holt says WR Tavon Austin has failed to stand out in training camp.  “Tavon Austin has been very quiet this camp, and I thought he was quiet the other night [in the preseason opener],” Holt said. “And for a guy who was picked 8th overall, it’s bothering me he’s been so quiet up to this point.”  Holt went on to say that he believes Austin's biggest contribution this season will come on special teams.  It's just one man's opinion but obviously not what we want to hear about a guy looking to make a 2nd-year leap.  Between Austin's disappointing rookie campaign and St. Louis' run-first offense, we're not expecting him to emerge as a weekly fantasy starter in 2014.
