Saints | Alvin Kamara ready for more

Sun, 22 Jul 2018 20:14:31 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara said that having a year of experience under his belt will help him build on his rookie season.

Fantasy Tip: Kamara finished his rookie year as a RB1 while splitting time with Mark Ingram. With Ingram suspended to start the year, Kamara has a golden opportunity to establish himself as a top-five fantasy back, especially in PPR formats.

Saints | Alvin Kamara won't be overworked

Sat, 12 May 2018 19:42:26 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara won't be overworked during RB Mark Ingram's suspension, according to head coach Sean Payton. "By all means, we don't want to sit there and run the tread off the back with him early in the season because this thing it's a marathon, 16 games," Payton said.

Fantasy Tip: Considering Kamara has already shown he can be a RB1 while splitting carries with Ingram, it's probably better for his long-term value that the Saints don't run him into the ground. He's a PPR juggernaut and a RB1 in all formats.

Saints | Mark Ingram, Alvin Kamara make NFL history

Mon, 01 Jan 2018 21:18:47 -0800

New Orleans Saints RBs Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara became the first running back duo in NFL history to each have at least 1,500 yards from scrimmage in the same season.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram finished fifth in the NFL in rushing this season with 1,124 yards, while Kamara registered 728 yards on the ground, but on just 120 rush attempts, giving him the highest yards-per-carry mark (6.1) in the league out of all qualified running backs. He also led all players at his position with 826 receiving yards. They should remain upper echelon options in fantasy throughout the postseason.

Fantasy Tip: Kamara's heavy involvement in the passing game makes him no worse than a RB2 in PPR formats on routine basis. Against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 17, he should be a RB1.
