Rams HC Sean McVay called Cam Akers a "3-down back" and a "very special player" on Thursday. The Rams already proved willing to give Akers a big workload on the ground last year, handing it to him 18+ times in 5 of their last 6 games. He totaled just 14 targets over that span, but it sounds like he's in for an increased role in the passing game. Akers looks like a RB1 heading into 2021 fantasy drafts.

Rams RBs Cam Akers (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Cardinals. He got in just 1 limited practice this week after suffering a high-ankle sprain 14 days ago. Akers figures to be operating at far less than 100% today and is a risky fantasy play. His presence, though, also makes RB Malcolm Brown a shaky option.

Rams RB Cam Akers (ankle) remains a game-time decision for today's tilt with the Rams, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Akers probably isn't anywhere close to 100% after suffering a high-ankle sprain just 2 weeks ago, but he might push through it for this win-and-in game. The issue is that we won't find out whether he's active until 3 pm ET today. Akers will be a shaky fantasy play if active, but his presence would obviously put a major dent in RB Malcolm Brown's projection.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Akers is "likely to try to play."

Rams RBs Cam Akers (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Cardinals. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, but it sounds like he’ll be a game-time decision for this win-and-in game for the Rams. RB Darrell Henderson (ankle) is out, so it’ll be RB Malcolm Brown in a workhorse role if Akers can’t go.

Rams RB Cam Akers has a high-ankle sprain, HC Sean McVay said Monday. The rookie was surprisingly able to play through it in the loss to the Jets but will miss at least Week 16 vs. the Seahawks, McVay said. We wouldn't bet on him playing in Week 17, either, considering the injury. Akers' absence figures to put RB Darrell Henderson back in the lead ball-carrying role, with RB Malcolm Brown also taking on an expanded role.

Injury Predictor

Cam Akers is a complete and underrated running back coming out of Florida State. A good mixture of size and tremendous speed. He can run between-the-tackles and with great instincts. Akers won't push many piles but has good balance and will fight for yards after contact. Which he will receive a lot of with the bad Rams offensive line. Akers will battle in pass protection. Akers could outdistance himself from Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown. Still, Sean McVay has recently said he wants a running game by committee.

Dynasty Spin: Akers is among the three to five running backs going after Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Jonathan Taylor. It just depends on your fancy where he goes among D’Andre Swift and J.K. Dobbins. Akers is going as a late fourth round to early fifth-round selection in start-ups.
