Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
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 
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?Volume is a big driver of his value, but with new coaching regime and expected run scheme changes, don't be surprised if backup Khalil Herbert is more involved
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. 
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.David Montgomery finished as the RB12 and RB6 in fantasy points per game in each of the last two seasons, surpassing expectations. The Bears' receiving weapons are depleted outside of Darnell Mooney and Cole Kmet, so there's an easy pathway for plenty of check downs weekly. With Fields under center, he saw 4.75 targets per game, which would be a new career-high if that repeats this upcoming season. Montgomery needs the added fantasy points through the air because outside of raw volume on the ground, the big plays likely won't be there to lead to ceiling weeks. Montgomery is a volume RB2 with an upside for more.
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.Considering that Montgomery missed four games with injury and played on one of the worst offenses in the league, it was amazing that he finished the year with 1,071 yards from scrimmage and 7 TDs. He should be a great fantasy player in 2022, if Justin Fields progresses and gives the offense some balance.
