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.

Cam Akers signs rookie deal with the Rams

Second-round draft choice RB Cam Akers has agreed to terms with the Rams.

Fantasy Impact

Akers was selected 52nd overall by the Rams in the 2020 NFL Draft. He will compete with Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown for the lion share of carries in the Rams backfield. All three running backs will be used in some type of committee. Rams GM Les Snead said "Brown will be used as a goal-line and short yardage back, Henderson as a home run hitter and Akers as the "go to guy." The 21-year-old logged 231 carries for 1,144 yards and 14 touchdowns in his junior year at Florida State. Akers is a target in dynasty leagues and is currently 27th among all running backs in the latest re-draft expert consensus rankings.
