Fantasy Advice

This Rams team still doesn't look very good overall because the depth is terrible. That's what you get when you mortgage your top drafts picks for years. Akers could do well, he's got a nice volume opportunity, and the system works. Every RB from here on down has some warts of some sort.

  • Cam Akers Becomes A Free Agent

    Headshot for Cam Akers

    The Minnesota Vikings declined to offer a restricted free-agent tender to running back Cam Akers (Achilles), meaning he is a free agent and can negotiate freely with any team. The former second-round pick was an exciting prospect out of Florida State in 2020 but after two Achilles tears in four years in the NFL, his career has struggled to get off the ground. Akers was traded to the Vikings from the Los Angeles Rams early in the 2023 campaign and rushed 38 times for 138 yards and one touchdown before suffering a major Achilles injury. The 24-year-old might get a chance to play elsewhere, but it'll likely be on a cheap, one-year deal. For now, he remains far from the fantasy radar. The majority of skill players do not recover well from an Achilles tear, never mind two.
