What are your projections for Tavon Austin?
Rizzla: Coach Jeff Fisher admitted to not revealing how they plan to use Tavon during the regular season during preseason action so the opposition would not have film to gameplan on. Expect the Rams to employ Tavon as the moveable chess piece he was drafted to be lining him up in the slot, out wide and in the backfield. 1,500 all purpose yards seems like a cinch here as he carries considerable special teams value but from scrimmage I expect him to flirt with 1,000 yards with about 800 receiving yards and 150-200 rushing yards. Lost in the hoopla over who was going to start at running back for the Rams was the fact the Tavon is fully capable of pounding the rock 6-8 times a game out of the backfield if so needed.
Jhas: As I was writing this, Tavon Austin just fumbled his reception in the Rams’ fourth pre-season game (PVR’d), so I may have a bit of bias. Last year, Sam Bradford spread the ball around as indicated by four players having at le...

ST. LOUIS -- If the Rams stumble in September, they won't have to look far for an excuse.
They can point to their youth, of which they have plenty. The Rams, in fact, are the NFL's youngest team for the second season in a row. They're almost young enough for coach Jeff Fisher to need to collect parents' permission slips. The average age on the 53-man roster is a...

For the past decade the St. Louis Rams have been one of the laughing stocks in the NFL. Every year I walk into the office and yell out “St. Louis Rams to the Super Bowl” and get ridiculed. Deep down I know the odds of that happening are minimal, but as the years have...
We’re committed to our users here and endeavor to answer every question that comes in via email, twitter, or other formats. Today’s mailbag yields a particularly challenging question that I’d like to share broadly. Via twitter @nathanavery23 asks: D. Rich from STL or K. Thompkins? Flex PPR. I’m a bit of a traditionalist when assessing RB vs. WR flex questions. All things...
ST. LOUIS -- Daryl Richardson will tell you this was his vision all along.
"Of course," he says. "I know hard work pays off. You keep working hard, and you just keep praying. And believe."
The undersized, small-school running back was the longest of long shots when the St. Louis Rams selected him with their 252nd pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. That left him one...
ST. LOUIS -- As is routine during the regular season, Sam Bradford gathered in the middle of the Rams' locker room Wednesday afternoon and staged his weekly chat with local media. Upward of two dozen of us were gathered for his first such session of the season, an impressive turnout that was duly noted by the fourth-year quarterback.
"I hope you're all here in Week...
The St. Louis Rams decided that they could do without Jo-Lonn Dunbar for more than 4 games, releasing the suspended linebacker on Tuesday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Dunbar was suspended by the league for violating their on performance-enhancing drugs on August 14th, and was schedule to return for week 5 when the Rams took on the Jacksonville Jaguars.
St. Louis quarterback Sam Bradford's career has had its ups and downs, but 2013 looks bright for the signal caller and he seems very cool about it. Over the past two years GM Les Snead and coach Jeff Fisher enhanced the talent and put more playmakers in the Ram's offense and Bradford is having a hard time hiding his excitement.
ST. LOUIS -- Les Snead said it best.
The St. Louis Rams general manager, shortly after he saw his second pick in the 2013 NFL Draft get beat for a touchdownin his first NFL preseason game, issued a warning to linebacker Alec Ogletree.
"They're not scared of you," Snead said to a booth of TV broadcasters in Cleveland, but really to Ogletree. "You're not in...
The St. Louis Rams re-signed outside linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar, who was waived at the beginning of a four-game suspension to start the season.
Dunbar was the team's second-leading tackler last year and coach Jeff Fisher had said there might be a chance of re-signing him.
The Rams (1-3) began preparations Tuesday for Sunday's home game against the Jaguars after players had...

I have been saying this all along, if you want to win some football games, you need to take some risks. Well this week I am going to give you a player at each position who will help you win your week 1 game. Sam Bradford – St. Louis Rams – I have been talking […]
The St. Louis Rams will begin the 2013 campaign at home against a team that many believe is the worst in the NFC West division, the Arizona Cardinals.
Although prognosticators believe that Arizona stacks up at the bottom of the NFC West, it is my personal belief that the Cardinals are the best team of all of the worst teams in any division. I hope that makes sense.
My point is that...
When it was announced earlier in the preseason, St. Louis Rams let it be known that he was very disappointed with Jo-Lon Dunbar for putting himself in a position to be suspended four games by the NFL for violating the league’s substance abuse penalty for taking performance enhancing drugs.
On Tuesday afternoon, just five days before the team’s first game of the regular season...
Just three seasons ago, the NFC West was arguably the worst division in the NFL. Whichever teams drew the NFC West could virtually coast for four games. Not anymore. This division has become the toughest in the NFL. San Francisco and Seattle are in the top three teams in the league. St. Louis is poised for big things under the second year of head coach Jeff Fisher. While the Cardinals...
