In Week 17, Cam Akers handled 25 touches in his first game back from a high ankle sprain, but his 21 carries went for just 34 yards (he also had four catches for 52 yards).

Last week against the Seahawks, Akers' workload and production went up a notch, as he ran 28 times for 131 yards and a score, adding two receptions for 45 yards — a grand total of 176 yards on 30 touches for the 21-year-old.

On the latest episode of the Rotoworld Football Podcast, I'm joined by John Daigle, Pat Daugherty and Hayden Winks to preview every game in the Divisional Round, including Akers' big opportunity against the Packers, and what to expect from Green Bay and Kansas City as they take the field for the first time this postseason.
