The Los Angeles Rams used a second-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft to draft former FSU standout Cam Akers. The marriage hasn’t worked out. 

Akers has yet to establish himself as the clear RB1 the Rams were hoping for, and part of the issues have been off-field. What that means is only clear to coach Sean McVay and management, but the relationship has hit the point that McVay announced the team is actively looking for a trade partner. 

Bookies.com veteran oddsmaker Adam Thompson has used his resources of NFL contacts developed over 20 years covering the league to create his hypothetical NFL futures odds on Akers’ next stop after the Rams.

After a decent rookie season with 625 rush yards, two TDs in 13 games, five starts) Akers tore his Achilles in the summer of 2021. He worked his way back onto the team in time for the playoffs to be part of the Rams’ Super Bowl run. 

Akers also missed time in 2022, leaving the team due to “philosophical issues.” He returned this season and got 22 carries in Week 1. He managed just 29 yards in those carries, and was left inactive for Week 2. So here we are. Akers is just 24, and his 4.0 career per rush average could offer an extra weapon to a team desperate, or willing to take a chance.

Cam Akers' Top Potential Landing Spots

The Las Vegas Raiders had a contentious negotiation with Josh Jacobs this offseason, resulting in a franchise tender but no long-term deal. Jacobs had nine carries for minus-2 yards in Week 2, the lowest total by a reigning NFL rushing champ ever. Week 1 didn’t go much better. At worst, Akers offers competition and a spark under Jacobs

Alexander Mattison is the guy for the Minnesota Vikings with Dalvin Cook now with the Jets. Through two weeks, however, Mattison has 62 yards and the team ranks dead-last in the NFL in rushing and 30th in yards per attempt. For a team with playoff aspirations, a move appears warranted. 

The Baltimore Ravens lost J.K. Dobbins for the year to an Achilles injury. They have two men who can shoulder the load in Gus Edwards and Justice Hill, but the run-heavy team typically prefers three RBs who can get things done. 

Depth is a concern for other contenders. The Dallas Cowboys, Green Bay Packers, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers each have competent starters but unproductive or untested depth behind them. 

Tragically, the Cleveland Browns appear to be a team in dire need of an RB. Superstar Nick Chubb suffered a catastrophic knee injury against the Steelers that, at best, ends his season. 

Jerome Ford performed in Chubb’s absence, rushing 16 times for 106 yards including a 69-yard scamper. They've also signed their former RB, Kareem Hunt, who was a free agent. Hunt reportedly lost 20 pounds and the Browns saw enough in a team tryout to bring him back into the mix. 

The Field includes teams not necessarily chasing a playoff berth, but in need of an upgrade at RB, now or for the future. That includes the Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts. The Rams are also included in the Field.
