Cam Akers News

  • Cam Akers makes debut · Oct 1, 2023

    Cam Akers had 40 rushing yards, two catches and 11 receiving yards in his Vikings debut.

    Akers had some positive gains but his seven touches were far behind the 18 of Alexander Mattison. Time will tell if the tide turns in his favor but Mattison has been much more effective the past two weeks for Minnesota after a dreadful first two weeks of the season. Akers is clearly a "hold" candidate at the moment as his value continues to be in flux.

  • Cam Akers traded to Minnesota · Sep 21, 2023

    The Rams have traded running back Cam Akers to the Minnesota Vikings in exchange for a swap of late round draft picks.

    In other words, Akers was given to Minnesota for next to nothing. It's a welcome (and necessary) move for him as the Rams were clearly moving in a different direction. Akers will now compete with Alexander Mattison in the Vikings backfield and at least has a chance to regain some value. He has tumbled all the way down to RB29 and he'll now at least have a shot at regaining some of his lost value.

  • Cam Akers future uncertain · Sep 18, 2023

    Cam Akers' future with the Rams remains uncertain as trade talks heat up following his week-two inactive status

    It's an unfolding situation and the issues likely date back to 2022 when Akers stepped away from the team for multiple weeks before returning and ultimately reclaiming his top-back role. In fact, Akers finished the season well, notching three straight 100-yard performances and three touchdowns to end the season. Over his final four games of 2022, he averaged well over five ypc. At this juncture, a total separation would be best for all involved. Recently turned 24, Akers appears fully recovered from his 2021 Achilles injury and should receive interest with multiple teams experiencing issues at the position. Listed as DLF's RB26, the young back's dynasty value will be determined by his next situation.

  • Cam Akers on the trade block · Sep 17, 2023

    The Rams are making Cam Akers inactive for today's game against San Francisco and reportedly looking to deal him.

    It looks as if Akers has lost his job to Kyren Williams and the Rams are reportedly looking to unload him. Things just went south for Akers when he was injured and he just hasn't been able to be the same running back ever since that torn Achilles. It's hard to see the Rams getting much of anything in return considering his recent ineffectiveness but time will tell. Williams should be cruising up your rankings sheets now.

  • Cam Akers struggles · Sep 11, 2023

    Cam Akers produced 29 yards on 22 carries, but did score a touchdown in the team's week one victory over the Seahawks

    "You've been McVayed" should be a popular exclamation after Kyren Williams was more heavily involved early in the game, Akers seeing most of his action on the team's final drives. Once again, head coach Sean McVay has proved he can't be trusted with his running back usage and there's little way to predict who will be featured in any given game. Still only 24, Akers is an RFA in 2024 and should still have upside games in 2023 though predicting those will remain difficult at best. He's best to avoid in starting lineups until greater clarity is found. Cam Akers is listed as DLF's RB26 and could be a value-on hold for future potential, most likely into a new situation.

  • Cam Akers looks poised · Jun 21, 2023

    In The Athletic's "Injury Mailbag" Cam Akers was mentioned as a player "poised to have a solid 2023 season."

    Coming off the Achilles injury suffered in 2021, Akers lacked his trademark agility when he did return but seemed to regain it in 2022. While reported to still be an elevated risk, the author suggested the risk level will fall to "low" as long as he escapes the preseason without reinjury. Head coach Sean McVay has already said Akers will be a focal point of the rushing attack and, as long as the mercurial coach holds to that declaration, 2023 possesses the promise we've been waiting for. Listed as DLF's RB26 and still only 23, there's intrigue here as a pre-training camp value-on acquisition but risk flags will continue to wave.

  • Cam Akers a central figure · Jun 16, 2023

    Cam Akers will be a "central figure" in the Rams offense according to Sean McVay

    The dynasty community wants to believe but anything out of Sean McVay's mouth has proven to be far less than reliable. On the surface it makes sense as Akers was a glowing performer over his last three games of 2022, rushing for 345 yards and three touchdowns while adding six receptions. After regaining his starting job in the second half of the season, he scored six rushing touchdowns. To anyone on the outside looking in, Akers has proven himself as a capable starter and it finally, hopefully, appears that Akers will be the focal point as a runner to begin 2023. Turning only 24 in late June, Cam Akers is an intriguing risk-on buy-low option as DLF's RB27.
