Cam Akers Named Top Rookie

Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers is projected to run for 829 yards this season, according to Pro Football Focus. That total ranks him second among rookies, finishing only behind Jonathan Taylor, who is predicted to surpass Akers by 29 yards to finish the 2020 campaign. The 52nd overall pick in this year's draft will battle Malcolm Brown and Darrell Henderson Jr. for a bigger piece of the potential backfield timeshare, with Akers expected to receive the most significant portion, especially toward the end of the regular season. While his anticipated yards total isn't encouraging, he is worth a first-round draft pick in dynasty leagues and a mid-round dart throw in redraft formats.

Cooper Kupp Putting In Work

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp recently posted a photo on Twitter and appeared to look more muscular than ever. The 27-year-old could be in store for an even more dominant season after pulling in 94 of his 134 targets for 1,161 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2019. He also served as one of the league's most efficient threats inside the 20-yard line and could see all of his numbers increase with the departure of Brandin Cooks, who was traded to the Houston Texans in April.

Jared Goff Being Given More Ownership Of Offense

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff is going to be given more ownership of the offense in his fifth year in the league, though it's unclear what that will actually look like. Goff's performance has been more impacted by the quality of his offensive line than his responsibility level in the past. In 2017 and 2018, Goff excelled when he was stationed behind top-10 offensive lines, and he struggled to open the 2019 season when LA's offensive line was in flux. When it settled and improved in December of last year, so did Goff. If he can be given an above-average offensive line once again, Goff will likely see more success.

Darrell Henderson Jr. Has Recovered From Ankle Surgery

Los Angeles Rams running back Darrell Henderson Jr. (ankle) said on Wednesday that he has recovered from surgery to fix a high ankle sprain suffered last December. Yeah. Im good to go now. I feel like if we were able to practice today Id be out there with no limits, Henderson said. He'll be in the mix to help replace Todd Gurley II this year, along with rookie Cam Akers and Malcolm Brown. It's good news that Henderson will be full-go for training camp next month, but it's worrisome for his fantasy upside that the team took Akers with their first pick in the second round in April. The Rams backfield figures to be a timeshare and Akers appears to be a more complete back, which makes Henderson more of an RB3/flex, at best.

Cam Akers Should Have Immediate Opportunity

Los Angeles Rams rookie running back Cam Akers, drafted 52nd overall in the second round with the team's first pick, forced 74 missed tackles on rushes last year at Florida State, which tied him for ninth-most in college football, per Pro Football Focus. He should have immediate opportunity in a Rams backfield that is now without Todd Gurley II. Los Angeles' suspect offensive line didn't do their backs any favors last year, but Akers operated and produced behind a well below-average offensive line in college, so that shouldn't be a huge deterrent when considering his fantasy value. The 20-year-old has a better all-around game than Darrell Henderson, but a potential timeshare -- Malcolm Brown will be involved too -- has Akers projected as NFL Network's Cynthia Frelund's RB36 in PPR leagues.
