Cam Akers (personal) likely to remain out for Rams Week 8

Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers (personal) is unlikely to play against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday in Week 8, per head coach Sean McVay.

What It Means:

McVay said the Rams are discussing potential trades for Akers, but he expects the 2020 second-rounder to remain inactive for another game. Darrell Henderson will lead the backfield versus the 49ers in a tough matchup and Malcolm Brown is expected to be the primary backup.

Henderson is the RB27 in numberFire's Week 8 rankings and our models project him for 13.5 touches and 62.5 yards. Brown (RB50) is projected for 6.5 touches and 28.7 yards. The 49ers are allowing the fourth-fewest FanDuel points per game to the running back position this season, but their run defense is a less daunting No. 14 in our schedule-adjusted metrics.
