Los Angeles Rams Fantasy Football Projections
Here are our projections for the Los Angeles Rams running backs for the 2020 NFL season:
|With Todd Gurley gone (and now in Atlanta), Akers appears to be the Rams back to own even though Sean McVay has talked up the hot-hand committee approach that the 49ers used last season. Despite running behind a terrible offensive line at Florida State, the former five-star recruit became just the third back in school history to reach the 1,000-yard mark in back-to-back seasons and 3.9 yards of his 4.9 YPC came after contact, per PFF.|
|As a rookie, Henderson had 43 touches -- 39 carries and four receptions -- in 13 games and 25 (58.1%) of those touches came in back-to-back games in October. Even though Todd Gurley is now in Atlanta, the Rams used a second-round pick on a (more) talented back (Cam Akers), which implies the coaching staff may not give Henderson the significant boost in workload that some may have hoped and/or expected when Gurley was released.|
|Last year, most assumed that Henderson (43 touches) would out-touch Brown (71), but that wasn't the case. Is the fantasy community underestimating Brown's role in the backfield once again?|
