Once we heard about Cam Akers' injury, we were wondering who the Rams would sign/go after, but they've said they're staying put for now and that they're happy with last year's undrafted free agent Xavier Jones behind Darrell Henderson. We still have plenty of time for them to sign another running back, but for the time being, Jones should be viewed as the primary handcuff to Henderson.

Xavier Jones ‘one of the Rams’ better assets,’ per beat writer

Jourdan Rodrigue of the Athletic said that Los Angeles Rams RB Xavier Jones “may quietly be one of the team’s better assets this fall.”

Fantasy Impact

The Rams recently lost running back Cam Akers to a torn Achilles, and that Jones could be the next RB up after current starter Darrell Henderson. “Jones may quietly be one of the Rams’ better assets this fall, depending on Henderson’s health and the Rams’ ultimate depth at the position,” said Rodrigue. Jones’ role as the No.2 running back could be short-lived if the Rams decided to bring in another free agent. Duke Johnson, Le’Veon Bell, Adrian Peterson, Devonta Freeman, Chris Thompson, Bo Scarbrough, Kenjon Barner, and Todd Gurley have been linked to Los Angeles. Jones flashed potential in college and had a pair of 1,000-yard rushing seasons at SMU. The 23-year-old will have the opportunity to compete for No. 2 spot on the RB depth chart. He is currently 113th among all RBs in the latest expert consensus draft rankings but expect that number to rise if Jones lands the role as the Rams backup running back.
