Who is Cam Akers

Cam Akers showed off his exceptional size-adjusted speed in the build-up to the 2020 NFL Draft. He clocked an 86th percentile 40 time of 4.47, contributing to a 90th percentile Speed Score of 108.7. The Rams selected Akers with the 52nd overall pick in the draft.

Akers wasn't exactly thrust into a workhorse role as a rookie. He played in 13 games but played only 32.5 percent of the offensive snaps. Akers rushed for 625 yards, showing a talent to make his yards beyond what was blocked for him. He finished No.39 with 315 Yards Created, with 2.1 broken tackles per game. Akers didn't exactly benefit from great run blocking, finishing No.28 with a grade of 52.6. He also drew a disappointing 14 targets, with a 3.1 percent target share, on 103 routes run.

Akers tore his Achilles in the 2021 preseason but incredibly was back on the active roster before the end of the campaign. He played just once in the regular season, carrying five times for three yards. He played a full part in the Rams' successful postseason but looked far from his best. Akers carried the ball 67 times for 172 scoreless yards and caught eight passes for 76 yards, giving him a woeful 3.3 yards per touch. But a full off-season resting up should do wonders for him heading into 2022, where he is expected to have an early ADP and factor high up in the fantasy ranking for running backs.
