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a player of Kamara’s efficiency, but one has to wonder how much Kamara’s workload will increase now that Ingram has been replaced by Latavius Murray (if at all).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