Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers ranked 11th in rushing yards over the final five weeks of the season, but his 4.0 yards per carry in that stretch were the fewest among players ranked in the top 20 in rushing.
Huddle Up: Akers emerged as the lead back for the Rams down the stretch, logging at least 15 carries in each of the final four games of the regular season and recording 46 more carries in two playoff contests. If he maintains a similar role in 2021, he should at least be a volume-based RB2.

Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers is an every down running back in the NFL, according to head coach Sean McVay.
Huddle Up: Akers dealt with some injuries during the season but played well when in uniform and could be the main running back for the Rams next season. He can be a No. 2 fantasy back if he receives most of the work.

Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers practiced in full for a second consecutive day and was removed from the injury report Thursday, Jan. 7.
Huddle Up: Akers handled 25 touches in Week 17 despite reportedly dealing with a high-ankle sprain, which only caused him to miss one game. There's no way the rookie is anywhere close to 100 percent, as evidenced by his 21 carries for 34 yards last week. The Seattle Seahawks are not a great matchup for him, but the Rams might need him to handle another heavy workload with the questions they have at quarterback at the moment.
