Cam Akers carried the rock 12 times for 65 yards and tacked on three receptions for an additional 35 yards in a Rams’ 24-12 loss to the Packers on Monday.

He has now scored three times over the past three games and has remained the 1A option in the Rams’ backfield ahead of rookie Kyren Williams. Akers will be tasked with a difficult matchup in Week 16 against Denver, but he has proven that he can return RB3 numbers with his recent efforts.
