Dynasty Add Alert
This one in particular is for my dynasty freaks. Akers, the former Seminole, falls into one of my deepest running backs and is showing signs of hope.
The Rams backfield has turned into a sloppy mess and there seems to be a tryout each week for the “starting job”. Akers was hyped up to be among the best of the rookie class.
While the fellow Ram’s RB has been in and out with injuries and just has not seemed to get things going, he has 16 touches in the last two contests with the first touchdown of his rookie season.
On the other hand, companions Malcolm Brown (12) and Darrell Henderson Jr. (18) have gone backward in touches compared to what they have gotten early in the season.
Not to mention, the two combined for 11 carries for 25 yards against Tampa Bay in Week 11. Recent struggles from the two may very well open the door for the rookie, nonetheless.
So, Is this a sign that the Rams still believe in Akers? Will Akers emerge as the starter in the long term? Cam Akers possesses the ability to become a workhorse back and it could become something worth taking a chance on.
For dynasty leagues, the “buy” window could very well be soon be closed. Grab Akers while he’s available. The running back’s future is promising, just hold on.
