Jake Funk
23-Year-Old Running BackRB
2021 Fantasy Outlook
The Rams drafted Funk in the seventh round of the 2021 NFL Draft, 233rd overall, a context that had the Maryland product poised to battle for depth slotting in the team's backfield. Alas, Funk's chances to both make the team's 53-man roster, as well as contribute as a rookie, were boosted by the unfortunate Achilles' injury that befell top back Cam Akers in July. Also in the mix for touches in the Rams' post-Akers backfield are Darrell Henderson, Sony Michel and Xavier Jones. Read Past Outlooks

No offensive snaps

September 14, 2021
Funk logged 11 snaps on special teams during Sunday's 34-14 win over the Bears.
ANALYSIS
Funk failed to see any snaps on offense, as fellow running backs Darrell Henderson and Sony Michel carried the load. Henderson totaled 16 carries while Michel logged just one carry. As the No. 3 running back on the team, Funk will likely have difficulty finding consistent opportunities on offense. It's hard to imagine a path to fantasy relevance for the 5-foot-10, 203-pound rookie if both Henderson and Michel can stay healthy. The Rams are set to take on the Colts in Week 2.
