  • Cam Akers Runs For 44 Yards

    Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers ran for 44 yards on nine carries in the Rams' 10-26 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Even with the Rams' top receivers Cooper Kupp and Allen Robinson II out with ankle injuries, Akers did not play any role in LA's passing game. Both rookie RB Kyren Williams and QB Bryce Perkins had more carries than Akers. Averaging 4.6 yards per carry, Akers was fairly efficient. But with as infrequently the Rams run the ball, Akers does not have much fantasy upside as long as he is part of a committee. In Week 13, he will try to get on track in a home tilt against the Seattle Seahawks.

  • 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.

  • Cam Akers Has Five Carries In Return

    Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers returned to the field in Week 10 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and only gained three yards on five carries in the Rams' 13-16 loss. Akers had previously been away from the team due to problems he had with the team's usage of him. The Rams considered trading Akers before the November 1 deadline but received little interest. According to Adam Schefter, coach Sean McVay met with Akers and the two had "a good clearing of the air." Nonetheless, Akers has been inefficient all season, and the Rams don't run the ball frequently and don't score many points. He is not a fantasy-relevant player.

  • Cam Akers Expected To Be Active In Week 9

    Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers is expected to suit up for the Week 9 matchup versus the Buccaneers. It's unknown how much work the 23-year-old will get on Sunday. However, considering he hasn't played since Week 5, it's doubtful he'll be involved enough to jeopardize Darrell Henderson's fantasy potential. Still, the Rams' running game has been a mess this season, so nobody in the team's backfield should be considered a must-start in any format.

  • Cam Akers Could Play Against Buccaneers

    Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay won't say yet if running back Cam Akers will play in Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but he did say "there is a possibility." Akers returned to practice this week and wasn't listed on the final injury report on Friday. The 23-year-old fell out of favor with the coaching staff and was put on the trade block, but the Rams were unable to move him and are now trying to reinsert him into their backfield. Akers hasn't played since Week 5, though, so even if he's active on Sunday, there's a good chance he'll be in some sort of timeshare with Darrell Henderson Jr. and Malcolm Brown. LA's backfield is currently one to avoid while in a state of uncertainty and disarray, but Akers is worth stashing after being dropped in most single-year leagues.

  • Cam Akers Practices In Full Thursday

    Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers was listed as a full practice participant on Thursday. Akers hasn't played since Week 5 after falling out of favor with the coaching staff, and it was widely expected that he'd be traded before Tuesday's deadline. But the Rams couldn't get what they wanted for him, so Akers will remain with the team and could once again become a big part of this backfield the rest of the season. It's a strange development, but fantasy managers in need of RB help might want to pick Akers up off the waiver wire immediately. It remains to be seen if the 23-year-old will be active in Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, however. If Akers is active, it's anyone's guess how the backfield touches will be split between him, Darrell Henderson Jr. and Malcolm Brown.

  • Cam Akers Could Return Against Tampa Bay

    Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers (personal) could return and play in Sunday's contest against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Sean McVay said Wednesday "he had a good talk with Cam Akers," who has been inactive the past two games and wasn't traded by Tuesday's deadline. The 23-year-old will return to practice on Thursday. He had 51 carries for 151 yards and a touchdown while catching two passes for 18 yards across five games in 2022. If active, Akers is not a strong fantasy option against Tampa Bay, as his role remains unclear. The Rams will most likely utilize a committee with Akers, Darrell Henderson Jr., Malcolm Brown, and Kyren Williams rest of the season.

The Rams could not find a trade partner for Akers by the NFL trade deadline, and he will return to the team for Thursday's practice. The 23-year-old had 51 carries for 151 yards and a touchdown while catching two passes for 18 yards across five games in 2022. Akers is a roster stash for now, but expect the Rams to utilize a committee with running backs Darrell Henderson Jr., Malcolm Brown, and Kyren Williams rest of the season.

  • Rams Hope Cam Akers Will Play For Them Again

    The Los Angeles Rams turned down multiple offers for running back Cam Akers before Tuesday's trade deadline and are now working with Akers' agent in hopes that he'll play for them again this season, according to sources. Akers has been inactive the last two games for what the team called personal reasons. Meanwhile, Ronnie Rivers out-carried Darrell Henderson Jr. in the Week 8 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. The coaching staff hasn't been pleased with Akers in 2022, but they may have no choice but to try to mend fences and reinstall him as their lead back in order to fix a broken offense. In five games in 2022, Akers has 51 carries for 151 yards and a touchdown while catching two passes for 18 yards. The 23-year-old might be worth a pickup in deeper leagues, but it might be foolish thinking to hope that he'll become the clear lead back for this team again.

  • Cam Akers Likely Won't Be Released

    Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers (personal) is not expected to be released, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Therefore, if the team fails to trade him, they expect him to play later in the regular season. Akers was inactive in Week 6 and is not expected to play in Week 8, either. Through five games this season, he registered an uninspiring total of 151 rushing yards, 18 receiving yards, and one touchdown. Not only should he be benched in all leagues, but he's borderline droppable in some redraft formats.

    Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers (personal) will be inactive for Week 8 after the team has expressed interest in trading him. It was reported that Akers has likely taken his last snap for the defending Super Bowl champions, so this comes as no surprise. Darrell Henderson is expected to be the lead back for the Rams, while Malcolm Brown and rookie Kyren Williams, who is set to make his NFL debut soon, will also be factors in the backfield. Brown and Williams are solid deep league pickups as late-season flyers.

    The Los Angeles Rams designated rookie running back Kyren Williams (ankle) to return from Injured Reserve on Wednesday. The Rams now have 21 days to officially activate Williams from IR after he suffered a high-ankle sprain in the season opener on his first NFL snap. Fantasy managers should stash the 22-year-old fifth-rounder right now if they have the roster space, as Williams could take on a significant role in LA's backfield alongside Darrell Henderson Jr. once he's healthy enough to return. The Rams also still have Cam Akers, but he has fallen out of favor with the coaching staff and is a trade chip ahead of next Tuesday's deadline.

  • Cam Akers Won't Practice This Week

    Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers will not practice with the team this week, according to head coach Sean McVay. Akers has fallen out of favor with the Rams' coaching staff, and the team continues to try and trade him before the Nov. 1 deadline next Tuesday. The 23-year-old will most likely be a healthy scratch yet again in Week 8 against the San Francisco 49ers if he's still with the team by then. Darrell Henderson Jr. should continue to work as LA's lead back. Akers can probably be dropped in 12-team leagues at this point, and you're only stashing in him in deeper leagues if you're hoping he'll be traded to another team and see a good amount of playing time. But if the Rams can't find any takers, he'll continue to languish in fantasy purgatory in Los Angeles.

  • Rams Still Trying To Trade Cam Akers

    Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said the team has talked to different teams and is still looking to move running back Cam Akers before the Nov. 1 trade deadline, but nothing is decided yet. Akers has fallen out of favor with the Rams coaching staff and was told to stay home from practice last week. McVay said there's a possibility that Akers remains with the team, although it's unlikely that he'll play in Week 8 against the division-rival San Francisco 49ers. The 23-year-old former second-round pick has averaged just 3.0 yards per carry on 51 totes for 151 yards and one touchdown on the ground for the Rams in 2022 in five games played. With Akers out of the picture for now in LA, Darrell Henderson Jr. has become the team's lead back.

  • Kyren Williams Could Have A Big Role Once Healthy

    Los Angeles Rams rookie running back Kyren Williams (ankle) has been a popular waiver-wire target the past few days. The rookie running back suffered a high-ankle sprain in the Week 1 loss to the Buffalo Bills. He was placed on Injured Reserve after the game and was expected to miss up to six weeks with the injury. While Williams hasn't been designated to return from IR yet, it's only a matter of time. With Cam Akers likely getting traded or released soon, the rookie running back has a chance to carve out a role in the backfield behind Darrell Henderson. His abilities in the passing game could earn the rookie a consistent role once he's ready to play. However, given Henderson's injury history, Williams could have more value than just a handcuff/third-down running back.

    Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers (personal) won't be available for the Week 6 matchup against the Carolina Panthers. The Rams have been actively trying to find a trade partner for the 23-year-old back. The belief is that Akers has played his final snap for the Rams organization. The potential is there with Akers, but he has struggled on the field even when healthy. It's unlikely any organization gives up more than a Day 3 draft pick for the young back. This news is good for the fantasy value of Darrell Henderson who appears to be the unquestioned lead back in Los Angeles.

  • Cam Akers Could Be Traded By Rams

    Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers, who will be inactive in Week 6 due to personal reasons, is expected to generate trade interest in the near future. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport notes that the Rams are "open to a deal for the right value." The entire situation has played out in a unique fashion, with head coach Sean McVay explaining that Akers' personal matter is related to internal issues. "I would say it's more like we're dealing with things internally," he explained. "This is kind of unchartered territory and I think the biggest thing is, out of respect for the situation, we want to keep it internally." Evidently, it looks like the two sides aren't seeing eye to eye, and it could lead to a divorce. For the time being, Darrell Henderson will operate as the lead back, ranking as a fringe top-24 option in fantasy football. The Rams have also been linked to trade candidate Christian McCaffrey, though this is pure rumor and a deal would be difficult to complete.

  • Cam Akers' Situation With Rams Is "Football Related"

    Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers (personal) was shockingly ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Carolina Panthers after missing back-to-back practices with what the team deemed a "personal issue". According to Josina Anderson, Akers is not dealing with any personal matters and his status is in fact related to football. Head coach Sean McVay stated that the Rams would be handling the situation with Akers internally and declined to provide any additional details. It's fair to wonder at this point if Los Angeles is shopping the 23-year-old ahead of the NFL trade deadline. Assuming Akers remains uninvolved going forward, Darrell Henderson Jr. will be a solid fantasy starter with Malcolm Brown, Ronnie Rivers, and eventually, Kyren Williams (ankle) mixing in.

Head coach Sean McVay said the team is "working through" some things with Akers, so his absence seems to be for personal reasons. It's too early to speculate on what's going on and what this means moving forward, but Darrell Henderson should move up running back rankings to a must-start option. He'll likely command a workhorse role like he did last year at times and be featured in the passing game and in short-yardage situations.

  • Cam Akers Could Benefit From Increased Workload Week 6

    Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers has a home game against the flailing Carolina Panthers in Week 6, which could result in a more favorable game script for his fantasy production. The Panthers defense ranks No. 27 in rushing yards allowed per game and No. 12 in yards per attempt. Akers was shutdown last week by the Cowboys defense, which ranks No. 21 in yards per carry, but the Panthers defense is considerably worse against the pass, so the Rams passing game could open up running lanes this week. If the Rams get out to a lead against the 1-4 Panthers, they could run the ball more later in the game. Akers is a possible flex play for teams dealing with injuries and byes.

  • Cam Akers Unlikely To Finish As RB1 In Week 5

    Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers lacks both the volume and efficiency to be trusted as an RB1 or RB2 as he faces a quality Dallas Cowboys defense in Week 5. Akers has averaged 9.5 carries for 29.5 yards per game rushing and has only added two receptions all season. The Cowboys defense has allowed the third-fewest points per game. Dallas does excel defending the pass but has actually allowed the sixth-most rushing yards per game and ninth-most rushing yards per attempt. But Akers struggled, too, against Atlanta, which allows similar results on the ground as Dallas. Even if Akers produces with his carries, the Rams offense, which relies heavily on the pass, likely won't move the ball much, and Akers will have a low chance of scoring a touchdown. Something like 30-60 yards and no touchdown is a likely result.

Akers led fellow RB Darrell Henderson Jr. in carries by just one. But a running back in a pass-heavy offense with carries split almost 50-50 isn't a valuable fantasy football commodity, and Akers isn't helping with his lack of efficiency when he does get carries. He is averaging 3.1 yards per attempt on the season. In Week 5, Akers and the Rams face the tough Cowboys defense.

The Niners rank fourth in the league, giving up just 78.7 rushing yards per game. They held the Bears and Seahawks both to under 100 team rushing yards, and they are allowing the eighth least fantasy points to RBs per game. Akers has gotten more touches since Week 1, but the Rams backfield is still split close to 50-50, with Akers being the 1a back. Given the tough matchup and the insufficient volume Akers has seen all season, he is a suboptimal start Week 4 against the 49ers.

  • Cam Akers, Darrell Henderson Jr. Could Split Carries 50/50

    The Los Angeles Rams backfield of running backs Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson Jr. has been tough to predict through the first three weeks. Akers spent most of the first half of the Week 3 win over the Arizona Cardinals on the sidelines, but then head coach Sean McVay leaned on him in the second half after an impressive series. Akers and Henderson ended the game with a 50/50 split in carries. ESPN's Sarah Barshop expects something close to that moving forward, with the expectation there will be some games where McVay just rides the hot hand. It's about as frustrating as it gets for fantasy managers that have either Akers or Henderson. After just three carries in the season opener, Akers has been more involved the last two weeks and is the better upside back of the two in fantasy.

    Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers carried the ball 15 times for 44 yards Week 2 in the Rams' 31-27 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. He was also targeted three times as a receiver and caught two of those for 18 yards. The 62-yard, no touchdown performance wouldn't have won the week for anyone who had the courage to start him after he laid an egg Week 1, but it was encouraging to see him involved and doing something. He out-carried Darrell Henderson by a margin of five, although he ended up with three fewer rushing yards, and he was the leading pass catcher out of the backfield. He might not end up being the lead back in LA, but he does have a role in a Rams RB committee that might end up splitting carries close to 50-50.

He said, "I want him to be able to be a guy that we're heavily able to lean on, both him and Darrell." His matchup against the weak Falcons defense could be temptingif he gets enough carries. The Falcons allowed opposing RBs to run all over them for the ninth most fantasy points last season. But it is risky to start Akers until you can be assured that he has a role in the Rams offense.

  • Cam Akers Didn't Anticipate Limited Week 1 Role

    Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers was apparently surprised by his limited workload in Week 1. The third-year pro had his share of doubters in the offseason, but nobody could've expected his usage to be limited to just 12 snaps, three carries, and zero yards. It appears that the 26-year-old may not only be trying to return to pre-injury form, but he's also in the doghouse. When speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Rams coach Sean McVay said that he had a conversation with the former Florida State back about playing with more urgency back in training camp. Judging by his Week 1 role and McVay's sentiments, Akers may have ways to earn back that sense of trust. For the time being, Akers is a bench stash until there's some visible improvement in his opportunity share.

  • Cam Akers Needs To Maximize Opportunities

    Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers needs to maximize opportunities when he checks into future games, head coach Sean McVay told members of the media. Akers struggled in the first game of the NFL season on Thursday, producing just three carries for zero yards on an 18 percent snap share. On the other hand, Darrell Henderson saw the field for 82 percent of snaps, adding 47 rushing yards and 26 receiving yards. We don't know what the splits will look like in Week 2, but evidently, McVay wants to see much more quality football out of Akers. For now, he projects as a high-end RB4 and can be left on the bench in most fantasy leagues (at least until he returns to fantasy-relevant form).

    Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers saw just three touches on 18% of snaps in Thursday's Week 1 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Head coach Sean McVay acknowledged that there were things Akers can improve on and said he hopes to see "an increased level of urgency and accountability snap in and snap out from him". He also provided some more encouraging words, though, expressing his confidence in Akers to "be that guy that we've all seen" as we get deeper into the season. In the meantime, it seems that Darrell Henderson Jr. will continue to lead the way in the Rams' backfield. Fantasy managers need to monitor Akers' workload going forward, but he should probably remain out of starting lineups until he proves to have a meaningful role in the offense.

  • Cam Akers Runs The Ball Three Times For Zero Yards

    Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers carried the ball three times for no yards in LA's 31-10 opening game loss to the Buffalo Bills. He added no production as a receiver, either. Teammate Darrell Henderson Jr. carried the ball 13 times and was targeted five times. It looks like Rams coach Sean McVay wasn't joking when he said the team might have two starting running backs. Akers and Henderson were both recovering from what McVay vaguely referred to as "soft-tissue" injuries throughout the preseason. Akers' performance was inefficient in last year's playoffs after he returned from an Achilles tear. The reason for his lack of involvement Thursday night is unclear. After the game, McVay said, "Overall, it was a tough night for us and it was a poor night in terms of the overall decision-making for my standpoint." Fantasy managers will have to see if Akers gets more opportunities next Sunday against the Falcons, in what should be a more run-friendly matchup.

    Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers was not listed on the injury report for Thursday night's matchup against the Buffalo Bills. Akers missed some time in August with an undisclosed injury but he will be on the field for the Week 1 season opener. The veteran running back's absence on the injury report is a good sign that his undisclosed injury was never very severe. Akers is expected to split work with Darrell Henderson this season, which leaves him as an RB2 in fantasy.

    Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said that running backs Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson Jr. are "good to go." Both running backs practiced on Friday after missing time during training camp with soft-tissue injuries. Akers and Henderson returned to full practice to start the week on Monday and should be fine for the Week 1 regular season opener next Thursday night against the Buffalo Bills. The Rams backfield might begin as more of a committee between Akers and Henderson early on, but most expect Akers to eventually separate himself as the lead back in LA. The 23-year-old only played in one regular season game in 2021 due to an Achilles injury, but he saw more of a role in the run to the Super Bowl in the postseason. Akers is an RB2 target in fantasy, and Henderson is an ideal handcuff in the later rounds of drafts.
