Cam Akers Surprise Inactive, On Trade Block
10 months ago

Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers was a surprise inactive Sunday, and is expected to be on the trade block, according to Jay Glazer and Ian Rapoport.

Cam Akers, the much-maligned RB for LA, is once again the subject of trade talks. Early Sunday morning, Jay Glazer reported that Akers would be inactive for the Week 2 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. This was a shock for fantasy owners after Akers, seemingly on the outs last year, started Week 1 with middling production (22 rushes for 29 yards), and was vultured at the goal line by Kyren Williams on two touchdowns.

This isn’t new for Akers, seemingly going through a Groundhog’s Day scenario with the Rams, being on the outs with head coach Sean McVay. The team is exploring all options such as a trade, or the more likely scenario that he gets cut.

What this resulted in on Sunday was Kyren Williams being the lead back against a stout 49ers defense, resulting in 14 carries for 52 yards, 6 catches for 48, and two scores once again. The team has found its lead back in Williams, leaving Akers on the outs.
