  Saints | Eight catches for Alvin Kamara    Sun Nov 10, 05:02 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara caught eight passes for 50 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 10. He was targeted 10 times during the game. He also rushed for 24 yards on four carries.

Footballguys view: The offense didn't look as good with Kamara as it did the last two weeks before the bye with Latavius Murray featured. Kamara is still a good enough PPR play, but this is trending towards a committee.

  Saints | Latavius Murray to remain involved    Fri Nov 8, 09:16 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray will continue to have a big role in the offense against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 10 despite the return of RB Alvin Kamara (ankle, knee), according to head coach Sean Payton. 'Week 1 of Alvin coming back,' Payton said. 'We'll be smart.'

Footballguys view: Murray worked well in Kamara's absence. The Saints should use Murray the way they used Mark Ingram in tandem with Kamara for a couple of seasons. That makes Murray a RB3 or flex option with upside for Fantasy GMs on a weekly basis.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara willing to share    Fri Nov 8, 12:54 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle, knee) is ready to return in Week 10 after a two-game, three-week absence and said he would be happy to share the workload with fellow RB Latavius Murray who shined in Kamara's absence. 'It's not like I'm selfish. I don't need the ball every play,' Kamara said. 'He's fully capable, too. So I think we'll get a good balance going, and it will be hard to stop.'

Footballguys view: It should be a return to the Kamara/Ingram split with Latavius Murray playing so well in recent weeks while Kamara was out. Kamara's ceiling comes down a little bit, but his likelihood of re-injury does too, while Murray is a solid flex and bye RB2 play this week in a great matchup

  Saints | Alvin Kamara expected to play    Thu Nov 7, 10:50 AM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle) is fully expected to play this week, according to head coach Sean Payton.

Footballguys view: Great news for Fantasy GMs here. Kamara has missed a couple of games due to this injury, but he's back as a RB1 against the Falcons on Sunday. Expect to see Latavius Murray maintain a RB3/flex value even though Kamara is back in action.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle, knee) is unlikely to play in Week 8's game against the Arizona Cardinals, according to multiple sources. He should be able to return to action in Week 10 following the team's bye.

Footballguys view: Latavius Murray is a must start and Dwayne Washington will get work behind him. Look for Kamara to return to the lineup after the bye when the Saints face Atlanta.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara questionable    Fri Oct 25, 06:13 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle, knee) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 25, and is listed as questionable for Week 8.

Footballguys view: Kamara is on track to play and the Saints have acted as if he will from a personnel management standpoint. Latavius Murray could still have more work than usual and deserves a look as a flex play.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara could return    Fri Oct 25, 08:20 AM

Updating previous reports, New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle, knee) could return to play in Week 8 after he missed last week with a high ankle sprain and a minor knee ailment.

Footballguys view: The team has been proceeding as if Kamara will play and he should be in your lineup, although there's a good argument for Latavius Murray to stay in after his strong performances the last two games. There should be enough opportunity vs. a porous Arizona defense for Murray to be relevant even with Kamara in the lineup.

  Saints | Dwayne Washington poised for role?    Fri Oct 18, 09:19 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Dwayne Washington will be 'invited into the offensive mix' against the Chicago Bears in Week 7 with RB Alvin Kamara (ankle) ruled out, according to Larry Holder of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: Latavius Murray is the starter and could produce like a RB2 for Fantasy GMs while Kamara is out. Washington is a big back who can grind between the tackles. We're monitoring his pro career but only in super deep dynasty formats.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara involved in run, pass game    Sun Oct 13, 04:15 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed for 31 yards on 11 carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 6. He also caught seven passes for 35 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Kamara was contained by a high effort Jaguars defense, but his PPR result was still acceptable, albeit a floor game. Next week against the Bears should also be a long afternoon and Latavius Murray looked good. Kamara came in questionable with an ankle injury, so perhaps the team should go to a more even split over the next two weeks before the bye.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara travels with team    Sat Oct 12, 06:33 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle) traveled with the team for their Week 6 game and is still listed as questionable for the game.

Footballguys view: Kamara might see a slight reduction in work this week if he plays against the Jaguars. They're not calling him a game-time decision but make sure to check on Sunday morning just to be sure the superstar back is playing. Latavius Murray might get more work with Kamara a little banged up.

Footballguys view: It's not looking good for Kamara but we'll wait for comment from the team. No matter what they say we'll have to check back in Sunday morning to make sure we can use Kamara. Latavius Murray becomes a strong RB2 if Kamara is out.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara to catch 100 balls?    Fri Sep 6, 11:36 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara will 'feast on catches' and reach 100 receptions this season now that RB Mark Ingram is with the Baltimore Ravens, according to Mike Triplett of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: We could see that. Projecting him for 80-plus catches is fair and Kamara should get as much work as a runner and receiver out of the backfield that he can possibly handle. He's a no-brainer starter every week.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara to remain on 'pitch count'    Sat Aug 10, 07:27 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara is expected to approach the 61 percent of snaps he played over the final 12 games of last season after Mark Ingram returned from suspension as opposed to the 82 percent of snaps he saw in the first four games, according to comments made by head coach Sean Payton.'It will be similar to what we've been seeing. We've been pleased with the balance we've had with him. We think it's been a good count. ... Look, is one player taking exactly Mark Ingram's reps? I can't tell you that right now. And yet I think there's that presumption that Alvin's going to get more. And I think our pitch count and how we've played and utilized him has been really good,' Payton said.

Footballguys view: Kamara had a huge workload when Mark Ingram was out last year, so it was possible that he would get more work than he did with Ingram if the team didn't trust Murray to the extent they liked Ingram. Kamara is still worth a top five pick in drafts, but this throws cold water on the case to take him #1.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara has more to prove    Sun Jun 16, 02:15 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara will be tasked with an expanded role in 2019 with the departure of backfield mate Mark Ingram. 'I'm so anxious to see like, 'What else?'' Kamara said recently. 'You know what I'm saying? What else could I do? Where else could I line up? How else could I be successful? That's the best part of this profession for me. What's the next step you're going to take? 'Ok, he was good last year. How are you going to prove that you are what you are?''

Footballguys view: Kamara has a shot to be the #1 overall fantasy running back with a larger role this year. He is in a very stable offense and probably has the least risk any of the top four backs.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara utilized in slot    Sun May 5, 12:42 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara was lined up in the slot on 18.9 percent of his receiving snaps in the 2018 season -- the fourth most among running backs with at least 25 slot snaps.

Footballguys view: We should see those numbers continue for Kamara. The Saints are looking for weapons behind WR Michael Thomas in the passing game, and Kamara can be very dangerous as a receiver...from the slot or out of the backfield. He's RB5 (1.06) in ADP right now in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara makes history    Mon Jan 21, 04:09 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara became just the second running back ever to catch at least 11 passes in a conference championship game. San Francisco 49ers RB Jerick McKinnon caught 11 passes in the NFC Championship game last year with the Minnesota Vikings.

Footballguys view: Kamara and McKinnon's teams both lost in these championship games where they caught 11 passes. The Saints are in a Super Bowl window and they'll try to get back to the NFC Championship Game (and to the Super Bowl) with Kamara leading the way in the backfield. Mark Ingram is set to be a free agent in 2019 and may not stick with the Saints.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 12 times for 51 yards in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added five grabs for 36 yards on six targets.

Footballguys view: Kamara failed to get any chunk plays against a defense that had trouble containing talented backs in recent weeks. He wasn't a bust, but didn't help teams advance this week either. He'll still be a RB1 in PPR leagues against Carolina next week.
