NEWS: According to numerous reports, Cam Akers will miss at least Week 16 with his high-ankle sprain.
FANTASY TAKE: I know everyone wanted to ride the Akers hype into the playoff sunset, but that train has been derailed fast. I know many will say that you cannot predict injury, and that ankle injuries aren’t easily predictable, but I stand by that Akers is prone to injury and his rushing style invites it. It’s hard to trust him with that in mind coupled with how that Rams attack uses runners; that staff often times goes left when you expect them to go right. This means that in dynasty, I sell Akers high if possible. I don’t sell low, but I sell if it makes sense. I am not suggesting he cannot become a strong RB2 in fantasy for years to come; every player has odds that they thrive or fail… just because I put Akers’ odds of failing at a high percentage, that doesn’t mean that a certain percentage of him succeeding doesn’t still live inside my prediction. It does. See what you can get in a dynasty trade, and drop your ideas and offers below in the comments so we can all help with them. Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown will likely share the workload for the Rams in Week 16. Logic would suggest that Hendy will pickup where he left off when he was doing well for the Rams, but here again sits the dilemma of trusting that coaching staff.
