  • Cam Akers, Darrell Henderson Jr. Splitting Reps Evenly

    Los Angeles Rams running backs Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson Jr., the team's two most veteran running backs, have been splitting first-team snaps pretty evenly so far in training camp. So far, both of them look explosive and healthy, and they're are also clearly going to be a factor in the passing game. "I look at it as we've got two starting backs," head coach Sean McVay said. "Those guys are great complements (to) one another, but I see them as both starting-caliber players." Henderson has suffered a variety of injuries the last few years, and Akers returned late last year from an Achilles tear. Akers looks to have bulked up in a positive way, which should make him a more dangerous runner. Akers should be the primary back, but at his current ADP as an RB2, he'll be a bit risky if Henderson stays healthy and steals valuable touches from him.

  • Latest On Cam Akers, Rams Offense

    Cam Akers was clearly limited when he returned from a full Achilles tear to join the Rams for their Super Bowl run. Following a rookie campaign where he collected 748 yards from scrimmage on 156 touches (4.8 yards per touch), Akers was limited to 248 yards from scrimmage on 75 postseason touches (3.3 yards per […]

  • Cam Akers Working Hard This Offseason

    Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers reported he's 100% after tearing his Achilles last season. While getting back on the field from such an injury is a feat in itself, the 23-year-old wasn't satisfied with his play upon returning. "I wasn't happy with my postseason performance. I just felt like I left a lot on the field. There was more out there to be had," Akers said before adding he's committed to working hard this offseason in hopes of becoming a top-three option at the position in 2022-23. Nevertheless, despite Akers' production during the playoffs being somewhat discouraging, he seems determined to turn things around. Managers shouldn't forget about him during fantasy drafts, especially after all of the elite options have come off the board. Still, nobody should be reaching too far for him, either.

  • Cam Akers Says He's 100 Percent

    Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers (Achilles) said at mandatory minicamp that he's 100% healthy, and The Athletic's Jourdan Rodrigue expects Akers to have a higher volume of pass-catching opportunities in the offense this year. Some fantasy managers may be worried that he had just 2.4 yards per carry and 2.31 yards after contact per attempt after returning in the postseason from a preseason torn Achilles. But Akers, from all accounts, will be fully healthy entering the 2022 regular season and should be the team's go-to backfield option in an explosive offense. Rodrigue has no reason to believe that Akers won't be productive as a top-20 fantasy back this year, for what it's worth.

  • Rams Dealing With RB Injuries

    The Rams are dealing with some injuries to their running backs corps. Head coach Sean McVay told reporters that running back Kyren Williams broke his foot and had surgery (via Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic on Twitter). Fortunately, it sounds like Williams will only miss the first few sessions of training camp, but it’s still […]

  • Cam Akers, Darrell Henderson Not Present At Workouts

    Los Angeles Rams running backs Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson were not present at organized team activities this week. Henderson is dealing with an undisclosed soft-tissue injury, and it's not specified whether Akers is rehabbing an injury, but the Rams are being careful with players who are returning from significant injuries last year. As a result, Jake Funk and fifth-rounder Kyren Williams took the bulk of the RB snaps at workouts. Both Akers and Henderson missed time due to injuries in 2021, so it shouldn't be a huge surprise that they weren't on the field this week. When both are healthy, Henderson should serve as a complement to Akers, who figures to be the lead back.
