Fantasy Impact:

Brutal blow for both Akers and the Rams, who figured to lean heavily on the second-year running back out of Florida State. With Akers now done for the season, this looks to be Darrell Henderson’s job, and he should be viewed as a high-end RB2 with the expected workload. With Malcolm Brown also gone, look for Los Angeles to bring in a veteran running back to take some of the workload off Henderson this season.
