The end to the 2020 season is weighing heavily on Akers' draft position, as we saw Sean McVay trust him with a workhorse role to end the year. Akers wasn't overly efficient with the massive touch totals he received (Darrell Henderson was actually more productive on a per-touch basis), but we can't ignore a running back who is projected to get 18-plus touches in Sean McVay's offense, which is likely to be better than ever with Matthew Stafford under center. There's always the chance McVay keeps this as a timeshare with both Akers and Henderson healthy, but Akers is the one who was trusted down the stretch, including the playoffs. There's top-five upside with Akers, but there's also a bit of risk given his small sample size of a big workload and potential timeshare.

Cam Akers considered an ‘every-down back’ by head coach Sean McVay

Rams head coach Sean McVay recently told reporters that he views running back Cam Akers as an “every-down back” and a “very special player.”

Fantasy Impact

Akers took complete control over the Rams’ backfield starting in Week 13 vs. the Cardinals and never looked back. He averaged 21.5 carries and 2.8 targets per game while playing over 60% of the snaps in his last four regular season games. Even with Darrell Henderson in the picture, expect Akers to continue to be the focal point of the Rams’ rushing attack. He’s an intriguing option as a low-end RB1 in 2021, especially with an upgrade at the quarterback position with Matthew Stafford now in Los Angeles.
