Draft note
by John Paulsen
Kamara finished as the No. 12 half-PPR running back last season. He missed two games, so his per game average was the ninth-highest at his position. He caught the third-most passes among all running backs and has the second-most catches at his position over the past three years. His per game production has dropped a bit in recent years, and the Saints continue to be careful to not overwork him, but he’s still likely to finish as an RB1 in half-PPR and PPR formats.

NO RB Alvin Kamara - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Alvin Kamara is still a stud fantasy running back as long as he is lining up in the Saints' backfield. Even with Latavius Murray around, Kamara still commands a good chunk of the workload in the backfield. Despite his lack of touchdowns in 2019, he was still a top-12 running back thanks to his ability to catch passes. New Orleans also kept almost their entire offensive line from 2019 with the exception of Larry Warford. But they drafted Cesar Ruiz in the first round. Kamara is going to have plenty of room to work with again in 2020.

Fantasy Downside

We likely saw the main downside of Kamara in 2019 when he found the end zone just twice in the first 15 weeks of the season before finishing with back-to-back two-score games in Weeks 16 and 17. He can't have that kind of drought again in 2020, can he?

2020 Bottom Line

Kamara is a safe bet again as a first-round pick in your drafts. Last year showed the Saints can work Murray into the offense while still strongly feeding Kamara. If he can land in the top 12 backs with just six total touchdowns in 2019, he certainly can build on that in 2020.
