The Rams were going to draft a running back - we knew that after they interviewed a ton of them in the draft process. What we didn't know was that they'd take one with their first pick in the draft. While Darrell Henderson is a threat to Akers' overall workload, they clearly know what they have in Henderson, and drafted Akers early. It seems like Henderson is going to be the lesser part of the timeshare, while Akers is the early-down back and likely to receive goal-line work. There's a chance Henderson has a bigger role than anticipated, which prevents us from trusting Akers as anything more than a high-end RB3.The Browns are going to have a new offense in 2020, so we can't automatically assume that Hunt will be as big as he was in the gameplanning process in 2020. From the time he entered the lineup last year, he was the No. 26 running back in half-PPR formats while Nick Chubb was the No. 18 running back. The reason we have to assume he'll have a role is due to the Browns tendering him with a second rounder instead of moving on. Chubb is the superior play in this backfield, but it's important to note that Hunt has standalone value, while also offering league-winning handcuff value. If Chubb were to miss time, Hunt would be a top-five play.
Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
Both in reality and fantasy, Cam Akers is one of the most exciting rookies coming into the league. He enters an offense that desperately needs a new face at the RB position and I expect Akers to be that guy. Due to COVID, it may take a few weeks, but Akers should finish the season as the clear RB1 on the Rams and has top-24 fantasy potential as well.Even with Nick Chubb slated to be the starter in Cleveland, I still believe Hunt will carry stand-alone value in 2020. During his eight games in 2019, Hunt saw over five targets a game with just over five carries as well. Now that he's in his 2nd year with the Browns, both of those numbers should go up making him an intriguing option, especially in PPR leagues.
Brandon Funston

My bet for rookie RB to see most touches - skills to be a featured back (with a little pass game improvement), and team clearly lacks confidence in D. Henderson in that role 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Rams may have as many as four members in their RBBC, Akers is the early favorite to be the lead back in one of the most intriguing timeshare situations in the NFL.Hunt showed well in the second half of the season with 464 yards from scrimmage and 3 touchdowns as a receiving back and change of pace to RB Nick Chubb. He should be a flex option if he can maintain that production over an entire season.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 Hunt has absolute league winning potential if Chubb were to miss time, and is a trustworthy Flex and fringe RB2 with Chubb. Averaged 10 looks a game once he joined Cleveland in 2019 and averaged double digit points in ppr leagues. He is a tremendous option at his current ADP. Has the floor and sky hiigh ceiling.
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Akers was a 5-star HS recruit, played behind one of the worst O-Lines in the country at FSU and still put up 1,100 and 8 his freshman year. He can rush, pass, and block, is durable, and was a 2nd round pick by a team that had just spent a 3rd round pick on a RB the year prior. Plus, even in a down year last season, Gurley put up 14 TDs in that offense. Akers is a RB2 with high-end RB1 upside. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
This is one of the most puzzling selections to me in the entire draft. While I wasn't a huge Akers fan heading into the draft, I believed he could have value as a pass-catching back or a player that would thrive being moved out into space. Darrell Henderson is still there and could be the 1st/2nd down back, while Akers assumes the 3rd down work. However, this OL is still horrendous and is not going to help these RBs at all. This could be a David Montgomery type selection in year one, where the talent level is there, but the OL just simply can't hold up. Akers is a very risky pick in Dynasty leagues.Hunt should have some standalone value in 2020, but his true value comes if something were to happen to Nick Chubb. With where he's being drafted right now, Hunt would be an absolute league winner in that scenario.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Cam Akers has the easiest path to a featured role among these rookie RBs in terms of proven competition in their backfield. Akers also happens to be a baller. @Ihartitz 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Despite being 7th in total yards, the Rams somehow managed to give only 1500 of them to their RBs. While that's less than ideal, there is room for growth. There are rumblings that the Rams want to do more on the ground and with Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown proving underwhelming to this point, it's entirely possible that by halfway through the season, this is Cam Akers's backfield. Given the huge TD and fantasy point upside that role has previously held, a return to form for the Rams could make the young rookie a fantasy stud. Be very aware that he'll start the season slowly but he could rumble home with a head of steam if things fall his way.Kareem Hunt returns to the best backfield committee in the NFL likely to remain behind stud RB Nick Chubb. He will however remain the main passing back and that will be valuable as Chubb rarely sees the field when the Browns are chasing quick points. Given they've had three winning seasons in the last 30 years, that could continue to be a common site. Hunt also has enormous handcuff upside but he's very much a startable RB even with Chubb around. The Browns appear to be doubling down on the run and Hunt can expect to see 10-15 high value touches each week. That means borderline RB2 value if he can swing the committee towards 50-50 and flex upside if Chubb remains the main man. Draft the former Chief over every backup or low level starter in the league as his upside will win you your league.

 Was pacing for 74 receptions, that's James White level with a better YAC ability than White, and better chance at gaining rushing attempts.
