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 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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.During the scouting process, I felt like Vaughn was just a guy, not a difference maker. That's not to say he wouldn't be able to produce if given the opportunity, but I don't think opportunity will simply be given to him. Don't forget that David Johnson saw just 161 touches his rookie season under Bruce Arians, and that was while he was extremely efficient. Interestingly enough, he was also a third-round pick. This is a situation to monitor throughout the offseason.
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.Ke'Shawn Vaughn is just a younger Peyton Barber (and at 23, not that much younger). There, I've said it, I just don't rate him. He's a poor pass protector, has average hands and doesn't do anything special with the ball. He'll get what's blocked for him and that's about it. I can see him joining RoJo, LeSean McCoy and Dare Ogunbowale in an ugly split and I imagine his production will struggle to even match Barber's RB40 finish last year. It's even possible he's hardly used at all. Don't buy into the hype, he's a strong pass for me.
Derek Lofland

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. 
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. 
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. @IhartitzThere's a lot of hype around Vaughn (ADP: 75). Since 2000, only two 23-year-old rookie RBs, drafted in the 3rd round or later, have rushed for over 700 yards. @BraudeM
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.Ke'Shawn Vaughn in Tampa Bay is a dream fit. He's a Bruce Arians RB through and through and he's going to see the field immediately. Ronald Jones will still see some work, but Vaughn excels in both pass protection and pass catching and could walk in and assume the David Johnson role in this offense. He might not be able to put up the production that DJ did, but he's going to be a fantasy football star right out of the gates. He's a home-run pick at the back end of your first round/early 2nd round.
