Speaking Thursday, Rams coach Sean McVay called Cam Akers an every-down back.
"I think he's an every-down back, I think he's a very special player," was McVay's exact quote. Just 11 of Akers' 156 regular season touches were receptions, while he drew only three targets during the Rams' two-game postseason run. Akers' early-down workload will be voluminous enough on its own to make him an RB1 in 2021, but increased passing-game usage could vault him into the top 3-5. Akers caught 30 balls his final year at Florida State, so it is not an alien concept to him. The 21-year-old's fantasy arrow is screaming upward. Feb 25 3:38 pm (EST)
