Marcas Grant’s Week 15 sleepers

- Advertisement -

Fantasy managers have been trying to get away from Akers for much of the season. In fairness, it feels like the Rams have been trying to do the same. The reason it hasn’t happened is because we’ve all acknowledged that Akers is L.A.’s best option in the backfield, no matter how much Fantasy Twitter tries to make Kyren Williams a thing. 

Akers’ floor remains frighteningly low simply because coach Sean McVay could change his mind at any time. But the past two weeks, Akers has led the Rams in snaps and touches. The specter of Malcolm Brown (30 percent snap share in Week 14) is disturbing but with just three opportunities, he feels like little more than window dressing. If Baker Mayfield can pick up where he left off in Week 14, it will give the Packers’ defense something else to defend this week. Even if Mayfield reverts to the form that put him on the outs in Carolina, the Rams can try to exploit Green Bay’s Swiss-cheese run defense. Either way, Akers should see a decent amount of work this week.
