I don't think you can use autofs with n-w unless you set the
network-manager connection to be available for all users, so n-w
connects before the user logs in. 
If n-w gets network connection after autofs has tried it, you won't have
the NFS shared mounted.
Unless you need wireless access, I don't see a reason to use n-w in the
workstations. It's much better using the traditional networking
configuration. If you're using wireless, then consider editing the
connection and mark the available for all users option in the n-w
editing connections options.
