After an up-and-down first half of his rookie season, Cam Akers surged late in the year as the clear lead back in December and January. Akers posted two 100-yard games of the span and six straight active games of 15 or more carries to close the Rams' season. Akers had an elite metric profile entering the NFL Draft and slipped to the late second round in a historically strong running back class. While Akers has a sturdy receiving profile exiting Florida State, his lack of passing game usage last season was the biggest potential roadblock to a high-level breakout season. Akers had only 20% of the running back targets and the Rams were No.30 in the NFL with 50 running back receptions. Akers 2021 outlook bottomed out when he suffered a torn achilles before camp. He'll be a test of the previous truism that running backs never get back to previous form when they tear an achilles.
