Fantasy football players who took a chance on Cam Akers are not happy.
The Los Angeles Rams running back had three carries for zero yards during Thursday's 31-10 loss to the Buffalo Bills. He was clearly behind Darrell Henderson Jr. (13 carries) in the running back rotation, and even Brandon Powell got a carry for the Rams.
Akers' lack of production and opportunity drew plenty of reactions:
There was always a risk involved with drafting Akers. Not only is he splitting time in the backfield with Henderson, but he also tore his Achilles before last season and played just a single game in the regular season before appearing in four playoff games.
It is still incredibly early in the season, and Akers figures to have some type of role in the loaded Rams offense.
But it was a concerning role for fantasy football players in the opener Thursday.
