Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers rushed 21 times for 104 yards in Week 18 against the Seattle Seahawks, his third consecutive 100-yard performance.
Huddle Up: There was a time where it appeared Akers might be on his way to another team, but the Rams kept him around, and it paid dividends. He is now likely to be the RB1 in Los Angeles heading into 2023, and he could be a decent RB2 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams.

Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers remains firmly in the team's 2023 plans, according to recent comments from head coach Sean McVay. "With what he's done continuing to build on that momentum, I think it'd be silly based on what a great job he's done to think of it anything differently than him being a big part of what you want to be able to do moving forward. ... There's totally a different trajectory in terms of what he's done and the way that he's handled himself and the way that he's playing like we know he's capable of, " McVay said.
Huddle Up: Akers put an exclamation point on his return to the good graces of McVay on Christmas Day, running all over the Denver Broncos' defense for 118 yards and three touchdowns in one of the most unlikely performances of the season. The third-year back has been a stud this month, rushing for 285 yards and six touchdowns on 64 carries after totaling 274 yards and one TD on 84 attempts in September, October and November. He should be considered a solid RB2 option in Week 17 versus the Los Angeles Chargers.

Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers rushed 17 time for 60 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-23 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 13.
Huddle Up: Akers dominated the rushing attack, and it looks like he will serve as lead back down the stretch of the season. Injuries have taken a toll on the Los Angeles offense, but Akers could still be a volume-based flex option in his current role.

Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers (illness) practiced in full on Friday, Dec. 2, and carries no designation into Week 13.
Huddle Up: It has been a lost season for Akers, who simply cannot be trusted in lineups right now -- and that's especially true after he was out-touched by Kyren Williams last week. Williams is on the flex radar but is a shaky option himself.

Los Angeles Rams DL Aaron Donald (ankle), LB Travin Howard (hip), LB Terrell Lewis (back), QB Matthew Stafford (concussion, neck) and WR Lance McCutcheon (shoulder) did not practice on Friday, Dec. 2, and were ruled out for Week 13. Also, TE Tyler Higbee (rest) did not practice but was removed from the injury report, CB Troy Hill (groin) did not practice but is questionable, C Brian Allen (thumb) and LB Ernest Jones (back) were limited and are questionable, and OG Oday Aboushi (illness), RB Cam Akers (illness) and OT Ty Nsekhe (ankle) practiced in full and were removed from the injury report.

Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers (illness) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation to see if Akers will be able to play in the Week 13 game. He will share playing time with Kyren Williams if he plays but can still be a possible flex option in leagues.
