Draft note
by John Paulsen
In his last 10 games, including the playoffs, Akers has averaged 20.5 touches per game, and cleared 18 touches in seven of those 10 games. It’s pretty clear that the Rams want Akers to be their bell cow. The question is whether he’s able to fully recover from the Achilles tear that cost him most of the 2021 season. He was woefully inefficient in his return, gaining a woeful 135 yards on 72 carries (1.88 yards per carry!) in five games. There is not much data that supports the notion that he will return to form, but the surgery to repair a torn Achilles has changed over the last several years, so most of the data pointing to return-from-surgery struggles is dated. Akers is young, which certainly helps his outlook, and he was solid as a rookie, so we know that he’s good. The offensive line is strong as well, so it really comes down to whether Akers’ explosiveness returns by training camp.

LAR RB Cam Akers - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs New York Jets

Cam. Akers. League. Winner.

What else is there to say about the rookie after his performance last week against the New England Patriots where he had 29 carries for 171 yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for 23 yards. Akers looked downright Gurley-esque in his performance as he ripped off huge chunks of yardage running hard through huge lanes. Now fully entrenched as this team’s workhorse back, it appears Akers will be given every opportunity to touch the football moving forward.

The New York Jets rank 11th in aFPA to RBs this season, however, they are fresh off of surrendering 142 rushing yards to the duo of Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde. As one of the top rushing teams in the league, expect the Rams to run the ball a lot more down the stretch to make their playbook full of play-action more effective. Akers is a low-end RB1 this week.
