Cam Akers suffers torn Achilles, out for 2021 season

Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers has suffered a torn Achilles while training for the 2021 season (per Tom Pelissero)

Fantasy Impact: This is a HUGE blow for both the Rams and fantasy football. A torn Achilles will keep Akers out for the entire 2021 season. The expectations for Akers were high this year with fantasy managers drafting him as a top 12 option. With Akers out, Darrell Henderson looks to be the Rams No. 1 back, unless they make a free agent signing. Brutal way to start the season and hope for a speedy and full recovery for Akers.
