Cam Akers Could Lead Committee Backfield For Rams

Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said that all options are on the table in 2020 as the team moves forward without Todd Gurley in the backfield after the last five seasons. The current running back corps includes Malcolm Brown, Darrell Henderson Jr. and rookie Cam Akers. "We feel we've got three really good backs," said McVay. "What does that mean in terms of the distribution of carries? I think that's to be determined based on how things play themselves out and when we get a chance to actually compete in practice and in those live opportunities." It sounds as though the Rams plan to distribute the workload among all three backs while potentially playing the hot hand on a game-by-game basis. It seems likely that the Rams will focus on developing Akers and Henderson -- second- and third-round picks, respectively, the last two years) -- first and foremost. That means Akers, who can run between the tackles but also serve in the passing game, has the best chance to lead this backfield in touches by season's end. A committee approach will lower the ceiling of each involved, but on pure upside, Akers is the most attractive in fantasy over a full season. He ran for 2,875 yards, 27 touchdowns and averaged 4.9 yards per carry in three seasons at Florida State. Akers also caught 69 passes for 486 yards and seven touchdowns, making him the most complete back of this group.

Cam Akers Has Chance To Be Leading Man In LA

Los Angeles Rams rookie running back Cam Akers, a second-round pick at 52nd overall, has a good shot at becoming the team's leading running back in his first season. Akers has the build and makeup to be an every-down player in the NFL and should be a great fit in head coach Sean McVay's zone-heavy running scheme. Malcolm Brown and Darrell Henderson may be hurdles to Akers' touches right off the bat, as well as the Rams poor offensive line from a year ago, but Akers has some intriguing initial upside as a rookie heading into the 2020 season. With Todd Gurley now playing for the Falcons, the Rams have plenty of backfield touches to divvy up.

Rams Fill Running Back Hole With Cam Akers

The Los Angeles Rams selected running back Cam Akers out of Florida State with the 52nd overall pick. With long-time RB Todd Gurley being released in the offseason, the Rams filled a large hole on the offense. In Akers, Los Angeles gets a swift, powerful RB who has the potential for big plays, which should help out quarterback Jared Goff. Akers could see sleeper fantasy value in 2020, as he will likely split touches alongside unproven RB Malcolm Brown. Nevertheless, the Florida State product could ascend to the starting role as the season progresses if he makes a difference for the team, but he'll also be competing with Darrell Henderson. This becomes a crowded backfield now, and the addition of Akers is bad news for Brown's fantasy ceiling.
