Rams' McVay to increase running back Cam Akers' touches in Week 6

Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay intends to increase running back Cam Akers' workload in Week 6 because of the flashes he showed in Week 5.

What It Means:

"You see the athleticism, you see the dynamic run ability and I thought he created on his own a little bit,” McVay said in praise of Akers, who missed the team's past two games with a painful injury to his ribs. Akers led the team in rushing yards with 61, and broke off an impressive 46-yarder that showcased his top-notch balance.

The Rams backfield was (as advertised) a committee in Week 5, but it was a committee led by Darrell Henderson, who finished with 15 carries and 3 receptions for 68 total yards and 2 scores. Still, it was encouraging to see Akers tally more carries (9) than veteran Malcolm Brown (8) in his first game back from injury. Akers remains one of the more intriguing running back stashes in fantasy football.
