Rams' Cam Akers (ankle) officially active for Week 17 showdown with Cardinals

Los Angeles Rams running back Cam Akers (ankle) is active for Week 17's game against the Arizona Cardinals.

What It Means:

Akers is dealing with an ankle injury but will play through it in a crucial game against the Cardinals. Malcolm Brown is expected to handle some work in the Rams' backfield as well, and could see additional carries if Akers is less than 100%. Our models project Akers to see 14.1 carries and 0.9 receptions in Week 17.

Akers' Week 17 projection includes 64.7 rushing yards, 7.3 receiving yards, 0.47 touchdowns, and 10.5 FanDuel points. His salary is $6,300.
