Reflecting on Cam Akers' 2022 season is truly polarizing. He was a total zero from the get-go, essentially getting benched in Week 1. And then he looked like he was going to be outright cut by the Rams. Akers was shaping up to be one of the worst draft picks of the 2022 season.
But eventually - Week 13 to be exact - Akers did inherit the Rams RB1 role and he delivered as the fantasy RB4 during the last six weeks of the year. But it was a little too late for most fantasy managers who couldn't survive the dead 3rd/4th round pick that Akers was to start the first 12 weeks of the season. With LA potentially overhauling things, Akers will again be a truly polarizing player in 2023 fantasy drafts. Did he do enough in the final 6 weeks as the NFL's leading rusher (85 rushing yards per game) to retain bell-cow-type usage under a potential new coach? Only time will tell. The good news is that Sean McVay intends to return to Los Angeles, which bodes well for Akers to remain the go-to guy in the backfield. Recall, that Akers played 100% of the snaps in the Rams' season finale, an extremely rare number for any RB to reach injuries withstanding.

Fantasy Impact

Akers was the lone bright spot for the Rams on Sunday, once again flashing in the ground game. In what has been a whirlwind of a season, Akers is closing the year strong with several peak performances. The Rams take on the Seattle Seahawks next week.
