  • Cam Akers A Possible Start In Deep Leagues

    Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers should see the bulk of the carries in the Rams' Week 12 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. Former Rams RB Darrell Henderson Jr., who had almost as many carries as Akers, was waived this week. Malcolm Brown and Kyren Williams, who have both had increasing roles in recent weeks, remain factors, but Akers is the veteran lead back. He faces a Chiefs defense that is allowing the fifth-fewest rushing yards per game and the 13th-fewest per attempt. Akers has never had more than 15 carries in a game, and he probably will not this week, given that the Rams are a pass-heavy team and will be trailing most of the game. He is a starting option at RB2 or flex in deep leagues.

  • Cam Akers Leads Rams In Rushing

    Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers led LA in rushing with 14 carries for 61 yards in the Rams' 20-27 loss to the New Orleans Saints. Akers' rushing volume has been gradually increasing each week since his return to the team following a disagreement. In Week 11, he had double-digit touches for the first time since Week 5 and his most carries since Week 2. It is not guaranteed that he maintains this volume. Rookie RB Kyren Williams also saw his carries increase this week. The Rams underwhelming offense also doesn't give the Rams running backs many scoring opportunities. Akers will look to maintain next week at Kansas City, and he should be a deep league flex option.

  • Cam Akers Inefficient Again In Loss

    The Los Angeles Rams ran a split backfield again in the Week 10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Running back Cam Akers failed to pull away from his counterparts, carrying the ball six times for 22 yards and failing to catch his only target. The Rams' backfield figures to get no cleaner with running back Kyren Williams logging his first game since Week 1. Akers is merely a bench stash for now in deeper fantasy leagues.

  • Kyren Williams To Make His Return Sunday

    Los Angeles Rams rookie running back Kyren Williams (ankle) is set to return in Week 10 against the Arizona Cardinals after suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 1. Williams is a rookie fifth-round pick out of Notre Dame and could see a role immediately. The Rams offense has been one of the worst units in the league, and with Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson continuing to struggle, Williams has a chance to find opportunities for head coach Sean McVay. Williams caught 78 passes over his last two seasons in college, so there's a chance he'll have PPR value down the stretch.
