Cam Akers' summer Achilles injury eroded any chance for the breakout candidate to fulfill his 2021 expectations. Akers returned late in the season to log regular season touches and a surprising 75 touches in the Rams' playoff run, but did not look his typical athletic self over the span. Akers' return to even see the field from an Achilles injury was essentially unheard of for the running back position. Now with a full offseason of additional recovery time, expect to see a closer-to-full-strength Akers as the assumptive starter. On one of the best offenses in the NFL, Akers' lone limitation is as a receiver with Darrell Henderson's strength in that facet plus the Rams being over the lowest ranking teams in high-leverage opportunities for running backs (targets plus goal line carries) in the NFL each of the past two seasons.
