Emergency Pod: Ugh, Cam Akers is out for the season

Host Ian Hartitz gets himself together enough to break down the fantasy implications of Los Angeles Rams RB Cam Akers tearing his Achilles. The obvious beneficiary of this news: Darrell Henderson, although Ian isn't as convinced as others about his potential to immediately take over the full three-down role. This is mostly because we haven't seen Henderson afforded this opportunity during his two-year career. Still, the likelihood of Henderson working as at least the lead, if not undisputed, back in this offense is too much to rank him as anything other than a mid-tier RB2. The rest of the Rams' running backs are truly nobodies, meaning it's not a matter of if, but when, a veteran back is signed. Ian goes through some potential options and prays for Henderon's value that it's more of an early-down veteran as opposed to a scat back.
