Cam Akers 2021 Fantasy Football Profile

Leading up to the start of the 2021 NFL season, we will post 2021 Fantasy Football Profiles for several fantasy-relevant players.

Despite a modest start, Los Angeles Rams rookie running back Cam Akers emerged as a workhorse down the stretch in 2020.

Making his NFL debut against the Dallas Cowboys with 15 touches, Akers exited early -- after three touches -- with a rib injury sustained against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 2. That rib injury kept him out of Week 3 and 4 as well. From Weeks 5 to 12, he never exceeded 10 touches.

In that Week 12 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers, however, Akers was clearly the team's most productive back as he carried the ball nine times for 84 yards and a touchdown. After that point, he became the clear lead back.

"Probably about midseason, that's when I started to get a good grasp on the run concepts, what the coaches wanted," Akers said after the season (per ESPN). "I just kind of settled in, played football and it showed."

Even though he missed Week 16, only four running backs had more touches than Akers (94) from Weeks 13 to 17.

2021 NFL Power Rankings: Los Angeles Rams

Throughout the 2021 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Los Angeles Rams rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a post-draft roundup for the Rams in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 4

Players who benefited most from draft: OL Brian Allen, Coleman Shelton and Austin Corbett

The Rams lost center Austin Blythe to the Chiefs in free agency and did not draft a replacement. That means Allen, Shelton and Corbett will compete for the starting job in 2021 and possibly earn the opportunity snap to quarterback Matthew Stafford for several seasons beyond. Allen has the most experience after starting nine games as a second-year pro in 2019, but he has not appeared in a game since suffering a season-ending knee injury that year. Shelton has no NFL experience at the position, and Corbett, who started the past two seasons at guard, has played the position in only the preseason. -- Lindsey Thiry

NFL.com -- Rank: 7

As you undoubtedly know, the Rams are obsessed with trading top draft assets for established veterans, and no amount of oceanfront square footage at a Malibu Airbnb will make them a buzzy team this time of year. Still, we found some intrigue in their first pick at 57 overall: Tutu Atwell, the 155-pound Louisville receiver who became the lightest draft pick to enter the league since at least 2006, per ESPN. Atwell's diminutive build feels like it could be a problem at the next level, but he also adds another element to a solid receiver room that already includes Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, Van Jefferson and DeSean Jackson.
