Is Akers a very talented and dynamic RB? Yes. Is he going to see 29 carries in a game like he did at one point last year? Almost certainly not. With the expansion to a 17-game season, I believe we're going to see more and more NFL coaches look to involve multiple RBs in their game plan to avoid players wearing down. From Sean McVay's perspective, he's going to be thinking about how he needs Akers to be fresh for their deep playoff run and loading him up with touches like he did towards the end of last season isn't going to be sustainable for an entire season. Darrell Henderson is going to be involved in this offense enough to take some pressure off of Akers, which negatively impacts his fantasy value. I love Akers as a mid-range RB2 this year with incredible upside, but it's tough to logically get to the place that I feel comfortable putting him inside my top-10. If he ends up being drafted around that range, I'm not going to have many shares of Akers in 2021. My Very Early Projection: 271-1057-10 rushing & 29-297-2 receiving.

Cam Akers suffers torn Achilles while training for upcoming season

Per sources, Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers suffered a torn Achilles while training and he will be out for the entire 2021 season.

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.
