The Rams front office was busy today as it announced the signing of six of their rookies from the 2013 NFL Draft. The players were WR Tavon Austin, RB Zac Stacy, DB T.J. McDonald, DB Brandon McGee, WR Stedman Bailey and LB Alec Ogletree.
Of the these players Tavon Austin is the name you need to remember in all fantasy drafts. He will probably lead all Rams in targets as a rookie and will be lining up all over the field to take advantage of mis-matches on defense. He has the potential to be a decent WR2/3 in his first year which is hard to do for rookie receivers.
Next up to the potential fantasy batter’s box is running back Zac Stacy. In a backfield that is by “committee” for now, he has a chance to take the reigns during training camp if he outplays second-year backs Daryl Richardson and Isaiah Pead. While we give Stacy an outside chance at the moment, things can change very quickly when even preseason games get underway.
