The Los Angeles Rams reportedly won’t have Cam Akers on the team anymore, even if they can’t trade him. That sets up for a new dynamic in their backfield, with Darrell Henderson as the next man up to start. But, there appears to be room for any of the active backs to win work this week and moving forward.

One name that popped up today is Ronnie Rivers, who was promoted from the practice squad and will be in the mix with Henderson and Malcolm Brown.

Fantasy Football analysis: Rams RB Ronnie Rivers

Rivers is still a raw product, but is a good receiver, which could earn him work moving forward. This week, the team probably can get away with using Henderson in a game against the hapless Panthers, but might need Rivers’ pass catching chops as they face tougher teams.

Start or sit in Week 6?

Sit Rivers, but keep him on your radar.
