Draft note
by John Paulsen
In the four games during Mark Ingram’s suspension last season, Kamara averaged 22.8 touches for 153 total yards and 1.5 touchdowns. It was incredible production, but when Ingram returned, Kamara’s workload dropped considerably to 16.7 touches per game. That’s still RB1 usage for a player of Kamara’s efficiency, but one has to wonder how much Kamara’s workload will increase now that Ingram has been replaced by Latavius Murray (if at all). The Saints gave Murray the second-most guaranteed money in free agency--$7.2 million, more than what Ingram got from the Ravens--and that indicates that they plan to use him in a two-back committee. Kamara is a solid fantasy RB1, but don’t expect early-2018 usage in 2019, as long as Murray is in the picture.

NO RB Alvin Kamara - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at Bears

Kamara is coming off one of his worst performances of the season against the Jaguars, as he totaled just 66 yards and seeing a season-low 11 carries. He did have seven catches, salvaging his day in PPR scoring. As it turns out, Kamara was dealing with a "high ankle-type issue" as reported by NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Kamara is not expected to practice this week and is questionable at best for Sunday against the Bears, so keep a close eye on the Saints' injury report. Despite the low yards, Kamara is constantly a threat in the passing game, recording seven or more catches in four of his six games this season. That alone makes him still worthy as a top option in fantasy.
