Watch Now:

Akers rushed 10 times for 31 yards and brought in two of three targets for 30 yards in the Vikings' 22-17 win over the 49ers on Monday night.

One game after logging just two touches over nine snaps, Akers' involvement shot up to the highest it's been since his arrival in Minnesota. Akers' receiving yardage total was also a season-best figure and allowed him to outgain Alexander Mattison by a 61-42 margin in total yards on the night. The productive performance seemingly sets Akers up for another solid allotment of touches in a favorable matchup on the road against the Packers in Week 8.
