2017 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)

Last updated on Aug-14-2017 by Shawn Childs

In his fourth year in the league, Austin set a career high in catches (58), receiving yards (509), and targets (106). Overall, he failed to match his 2015 season (907 combined yards with 52 catches and nine TDs) due to less value in the run game (28/159/1) connected to the poor play by the offensive line and Gurley. The real problem here is that Jeff Fisher never figured out the proper way to reach Austin's upside potential. His yards per catch have been weak in each of the last three seasons (7.8, 9.1, and 8.8), which paints him as a RB type option in the passing game. His quickness will be an edge in the slot, but Kupp will create space with his route running in this area as well. Austin had surgery in May but he's expected to be ready for training camp. I expect a role change where he becomes more of a big play threat. There is a wide range of outcomes expected here with the first being a concern with less value in the run game. Possible 60+ catches for 800+ yards with mid-range TDs.
