Tavon Austin: Week 17 Fantasy Outlook

Bleacher Report AdministratorSenior Analyst IIJanuary 8, 2014

Austin has missed the last two games with an ankle injury, but according to a recent article in the St. Louis Dispatch, coach Jeff Fisher says that his prized rookie receiver stands a very good chance to return to the field this week. He'll likely be listed as questionable and could be a game-time decision, but all signs point to him taking part in practices later this week, even on a limited basis.
It would be a tough match-up for Austin, facing the Seahawks' No. 1 ranked pass defense. The Seahawks not only limit the opposition to just 174 passing yards per game with only 15 touchdowns through the air, but they also rank sixth in the league against opposing No. 1 receivers and limit them to just 51.6 yards per game.
