Three Fantasy Football Takeaways From The Buffalo Bills vs Los Angeles Rams

Cam Akers Is Not The Guy In Los Angeles

Many fantasy football managers expected Cam Akers to be the primary running back during Thursday night’s game. At worst, it was assumed that Akers would have to split half of the duties with Darrell Henderson. What occurred was something no one saw coming.

Henderson got the first few carries of the game and had a total of 13 compared to Akers’ three. Furthermore, Henderson had five receptions for 26 yards. Going into next week it seems obvious that Henderson is the lead back in Los Angeles, and while Akers may see a few carries, it’s clear that Henderson is the guy to own in this backfield.

Gabriel Davis Is A True 1B On The Buffalo Bills 

There were questions coming into this season if Gabriel Davis is really a true compliment to Stefon Diggs in Buffalo. Davis put the doubters to rest this game by posting a stat line of four receptions for 88 yards and one touchdown.

This game was a great example of what Davis can do in an offense that likes to spread the ball around. He may not have as many targets as some other wide receivers, but he makes the most of his opportunities. In this game alone, he averaged 22 yards per reception – showing just how much potential he has in this offense.

Allen Robinson May Have A Repeat Of Last Season

Many fantasy analysts, including myself, thought Robinson would be a key player in fantasy football this season. With a new quarterback in Matthew Stafford and Sean McVay as the head coach, many people believed that Robinson could channel his previous success and return to being top wide receiver material.

So far, it looks like those predictions were too hopeful of a Robinson rebound. In Thursday night’s game, Robinson had only one reception for 12 yards. This is not the production that those who drafted him in the early rounds were hoping for.

While Robinson’s lackluster game may not be entirely his own doing, quarterback Matthew Stafford shoulders a good portion of the blame. More often than not, Stafford had plenty of chances to connect with an open Robinson but would instead try to hold on to the ball longer in hopes of finding Cooper Kupp or opted to throw it to the check-down instead.

I am not ready to give up on Robinson yet, but if he continues to struggle as he did in this game, it may be time to start looking for other options.
