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for a player of Kamara’s efficiency, but one has to wonder how much Kamara’s workload will increase now that Ingram has been replaced by Latavius Murray (if at all).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 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 at Seahawks

With Drew Brees out, there may be more work and more pressure on Alvin Kamara to help keep the Saints afloat over the next six weeks. And this may be a week where Kamara makes more damage in the passing game than in the rushing game. Seattle held down Joe Mixon and James Conner, despite injury concerns to both, in the first two weeks of the season. But Kamara is too talented to stay quiet and should be more involved in the passing game, after catching just one pass against the Rams on just three targets. Bridgewater should trust Kamara to make plays. We know Sean Payton will.
