What to do with Cam Akers, Darrell Henderson, Malcolm Brown in Week 15 of the fantasy football playoffs

We go over the fantasy football outlook of Cam Akers, Darrell Henderson, Malcolm Brown ahead of the Rams Week 15 matchup against the Jets.

It took awhile, but we finally have some clarity in the Los Angeles Rams’ backfield. Rookie running back Cam Akers has now led the way for two weeks in a row, producing numbers that should be impressive enough to keep him from having to cede too many carries to his fellow running backs.

Fantasy Football analysis: Rams RBs Cam Akers, Darrell Henderson, Malcolm Brown

Akers exploded for 171 yards on 29 carries last week against the Patriots, adding another 23 receiving yards on two catches for good measure. The week before, against the Cardinals, he had 72 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries.

With Akers rolling now, the Rams haven’t asked Brown or Henderson to do much. Brown didn’t have a single touch last week, and Henderson has just two carries for five yards. You can safely leave those two out of your fantasy lineups this week.

The Jets offer another great opportunity for Akers to pile up stats, so get him in your lineup as an RB1 this week.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Cam Akers. Sit Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown.
