Avoiding as it looks like a possible time share and there are better WRs in this range. 
Derek Brown
FantasyPros
Cam Akers wasn't expected to return last year in time for the playoffs, but he pulled it off. He saw snap shares from 39% to as high as 81%. While he racked up volume in the process with 18.7 touches per game, his efficiency numbers were middling at best. His 2.31 yards after contact per attempt was a far cry from the 2.96 he rattled off in his rookie season (per PFF). With a full offseason to hopefully recoup any lost juice and return to his first-year form, Akers has the upside to be a workhorse in one of the best offenses in the NFL. 
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
It's clear that the experts and sharps are convinced that Cam Akers sucks at football after he averaged an abysmal 2.4 yards per carry during the 2021 season after returning from his Achilles injury - the worst mark of any running back with at least 70 carries. But his inefficient production is partially related to the juggernaut of run defenses he faced down the stretch - San Francisco 49ers (twice) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers - when in fact no Rams RB ran efficiently. 95% of his rushing yards in 2021 came after contact - the highest mark in the NFL. Did I also mention he was never even supposed to come back at ALL last season due his Achilles injury? If Travis Etienne came back from his injury and failed to perform, would that be held against his draft stock? There's simply too much emphasis placed on Akers' production when touch volume is the key driver to fantasy success at running back. In the Rams' divisional playoff win versus the Buccaneers, Akers played 81% of the Los Angeles offensive snaps and out-touched Sony Michel (signed with Miami this offseason) 27 to three. I expect Akers to be dialed back in as the top RB next season in Sean McVay's consistent 1RB offense, where the team's lead back averages 20-plus touches per game. Darrell Henderson has proven he's nothing more than a replaceable running back that the Rams continue to try and replace. Not to mention, Akers has a cakewalk of soft-run defenses to open the season against the Bills, Falcons and Cardinals. Won't take long for Akers to pay off his early Round 4 ADP in a high-powered offense. 
Mark Ringo
Sleepers and Busts
Akers is coming off an Achilles tear. Those injuries are notoriously hard to recover from. Even though he's on the field, I doubt he will have the same burst as he did before the injury. In addition, the risk of a second Achilles tear increases substantially on the unaffected leg. The body tries to compensate. As if that weren't enough, Matthew Stafford is still experiencing pain in his elbow. If Stafford were to miss significant time, you can put a fork in the Rams' offense. They'll be done. Too many risks here for me. Avoid 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The good thing with Cam Akers being injured so early in the season was that he returned for the playoffs and he will be ready for a full offseason. There is some concern that Darrell Henderson Jr. could cause a split in the backfield, but Akers is the better fantasy option of the two and he should be a RB2 in 2022. 
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
8/2: McVay referred to Akers & Henderson as "both starters," suggesting more of a committee than you might expect. 6/14 - Henderson already hurt, Kyren Williams broke leg. Akers might be fed 20+ touches a week & if he returns to rookie form he'll win leagues at this price PLUS he is 100% healthy & rumored to be even more active in the passing game. LOVE his 4th round value right now 
Kevin Wheeler
The Draft Zone
Akers has the potential to be a top-5 RB, but it is just as likely that he doesn't fully get back to form from the Achilles injury. 
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Miraculously returned from blown Achilles after half-year of rehab, but lacked previous explosiveness - will the offseason help him finally regain it?
