Austin nearly matched his receiving totals with his rushing yardage in 2014, putting up 242 yards through the air and 224 yards on the ground.

Austin did not have a solid fantasy season, as he failed to score a receiving touchdown or more than four receptions in a single game. While the Rams did use him a little more in the running game, he never combined for more than 60 yards in a game.

Austin caught 2-of-4 targets for 14 yards, adding one reception for eight yards, in Thursday's 12-6 loss to the Cardinals.

Austin started over Stedman Bailey and rarely left the field, yet the former first-round draft pick finished with between 10 and 20 receiving yards for an eighth consecutive week. Austin's actually done more damage on the ground than through the air over the last four weeks, but it's impossible to count on consistent running production from a wideout. While the increased snaps are indicative of a desire to get Austin more involved, that's yet to play out in terms of targets or receptions.

Austin was in for 66 percent of snaps at wideout, and collected two catches for 14 yards to go with 46 yards rushing and a punt return for touchdown on Sunday, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Austin has scored in three straight games and is being used more and more creatively by the Rams. If you badly need a receiver in a non-PPR league, Austin may still be available.

Austin (back) is active for Sunday's game against Washington.

Injury-wise, Austin should be fine for this one. He has topped 50 total yards just once all season, but if you're scraping the bottom of the barrel for options this week, consider that the Redskins have given up a whopping 26 passing scores and Austin has a touchdown in back-to-back games.

Austin (back) is probable for Sunday's game against Washington.

Austin was added to the injury report Friday as a limited participant, which would normally be a concern, but the probable tag is reassuring. With that said, Austin's hit-or-miss role and questionable efficiency as a receiver make him a risky fantasy investment in most cases.
