Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers 'does everything well,' according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com, and Rosenthal compared Akers to retired RB Matt Forte.
Huddle Up: Despite his versatility, Akers isn't likely to be an every-down back as a rookie. However, there is a good chance he ends up leading the backfield in touches. He's a first-round option in rookie drafts and a potential flex play in standard leagues.

Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers is a player that offensive coordinator Kevin O'Connell is excited about working with this upcoming season.
Huddle Up: Akers likely will be part of a committee at running back in 2020 but could receive the majority of the work as the season goes on. He has a chance to be at least a flex option for fantasy players this season and could be a middle round pick in drafts.

Los Angeles Rams second-round pick RB Cam Akers tallied 904 yards of his 1,144 rushing yards (79 percent) after contact at Florida State last season.
Huddle Up: The Rams used a first-round pick on Darrell Henderson last year and had a productive year from Malcolm Brown. They still drafted Akers with their first pick in the draft. One would think he'd really have to have issues securing the football in camp to not have a leg up on the others. He'll be in the RB4 mix and could graduate to an RB3.
