Cam Akers Fantasy Outlook

Cam Akers is a smooth operator! As a second round pick, he is a bit underrated because his potential is sky high. I am not sure why he only had 200 plus carries once while at Florida State. Feed this young stud the rock! The Los Angeles Rams might just be the perfect fit for him.

Sean McVay will be in the driver’s seat for the LA Rams once again in 2020. He was probably so excited to see Cam Akers still there at pick 52 in the 2020 Draft.

The Rams are a heavy zone run team and Cam Akers will transition into the NFL nicely because of it. Akers strengths are running with good balance and bursting through the hole.

Time after time, Akers has shown he can find the right crease and break through arm tackles advancing him to the next level of the defense and he does it so effortlessly.

Pros & Cons

Pros
  • Will be lead back
  • Explosive runs will happen
Cons
  • Still a Timeshare Situation
  • Not a Great Receiving Back

All it will take is for Akers to side step a defender or the defense to flow too fast, and boom! Akers will spit right through before the defense knows what hit them.

Tood Gurley is gone, but the Rams still have Malcolm Brown and Darrell Henderson. Brown has been with the Rams since 2015. He has vultured some goaline touchdowns away from Gurley but he is clearly not what the Rams want in a full time starter.

Henderson was a rookie last season who played very sparingly finishing the season with 39 carries for 147 yards. Expect Akers to comfortably lead the backfield.

Los Angeles Rams Offensive Line 2020

Projected Starting Line: LT: Andrew Whitworth, LG: Austin Corbett, C: Brian Allen, RG: Austin Blythe, RT: Rob Havenstein

Whitworth is the most known guy on this line. A 4 time pro bowler and two time first team all pro, he gets the job done even though he is 38 years old.

Havenstein is a monstrous left tackle that provides some more power to the unit.

Corbett, Allen and Blythe are all very similar. The Rams usually do not run straight at defenses. These three are a bit more athletic which is useful because they have to get to a point and try to wall off defenders to create a hole to run through. None are anything to rave about.

The unit as a whole is middle of the road. They are not a powerful offensive line that knocks people off the line of scrimmage. 

Cam Akers Strength of Schedule

Tough sledding for Akers. The Rams have 8 games against defenses who ranked in the top 10 in 2019. 

5 Primetime games. Only 4 games at 1PM EST. Akers and the Rams schedule would make any fantasy owner happy.

A Week 9 bye is perfect.

Cam Akers Fantasy Playoff Schedule 

Week 14 & 15 is home against the Patriots and Jets who both had top 10 defenses in 2019. Week 16 at Seattle. Week 17 home vs Arizona.

Cam Akers Injury History

Cam Akers Skillset

Yes. RB3 late in the draft. Sign me up.
