  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.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara returns to game    Thu Nov 29, 11:15 PM

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (concussion) returned against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 13 after being evaluated for a concussion. He finished with 11 carries for 36 yards and eight receptions for 36 yards in a 13-10 loss.

Footballguys view: Kamara and the whole Saints offense was a Week 13 dud. He should have a great chance to bounce back next week and shake off the effects of the loss against the Bucs next week.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 14 times for 89 yards and caught one pass for nine yards in a 31-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12.

Footballguys view: Kamara was one broken tackle away from a long score more than once. Don't mistake his disappointing fantasy performance for a lapse in level of play. He's still a strong RB1 heading to Dallas next Thursday.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara not taking a back seat    Mon Oct 15, 12:07 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara's nine offensive touches in Week 5 against the Washington Redskins were a byproduct of the team's several explosive plays in that game and not a reduced role, according to head coach Sean Payton, who expects more balance between Kamara and Mark Ingram going forward.

Footballguys view: Fantasy GMs are not going to shy away from Kamara. He didn't get much of a chance to perform against Washington with Drew Brees setting records and filling the air with footballs in Week 5. We'll see Kamara back at his normal RB1 production in Week 7.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara ready for Monday's game    Sat Oct 6, 04:11 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Saturday, Oct. 6, but he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 5 game against the Washington Redskins on Monday, Oct. 8.

Footballguys view: Kamara will have a different distribution of touches this week with the return of Mark Ingram from his four-game suspension. He's still an every week starter and RB1 for Fantasy GMs as we think Ingram won't get quite as many touches per game (18) as he did last year...especially his first week back.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara huge in the pass game    Sun Sep 23, 07:09 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 16 times for 66 yards in Week 3 against the Atlanta Falcons and he added 15 grabs for 124 yards on 20 targets. No running back had more than 18 targets in a game since the NFL started tracking the stat.

Footballguys view: Kamara continues to be used at a LeVeon Bell level of volume, which has made him the #1 fantasy running back through three weeks. His value will take a small hit when Mark Ingram returns in Week 5, but he is still one of the two or three most valuable players in fantasy football by any measure.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed for 46 yards on 13 carries against the Cleveland Browns in Week 2. He also caught six passes for 53 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Kamara kept out of the end zone and didn't break any huge gains in the squeaker over the Browns. This was disappointing, but Kamara should have a field-day against the injury-weakened Atlanta defense next week.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed for 29 yards and two touchdowns on eight carries against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 1. He also caught nine passes for 112 yards and one touchdown during the game.

Footballguys view: Kamara was mediocre as a runner, except around the goal line, and magnificent as a receiver and after the catch. He is as valuable as any back in fantasy football right now.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara ready for more    Sun Jul 22, 11:14 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara said that having a year of experience under his belt will help him build on his rookie season.

Footballguys view: We could see Kamara approach 1,000 yards rushing with 75 or 80 receptions in 2018. He could do more because his role should be larger...especially with Mark Ingram suspended the first four games of the year. Kamara is a RB1 for Fantasy GMs and has a current ADP of RB5 (1.06) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara won't be overworked    Sat May 12, 10:42 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara won't be overworked during RB Mark Ingram's suspension, according to head coach Sean Payton. 'By all means, we don't want to sit there and run the tread off the back with him early in the season because this thing it's a marathon, 16 games,' Payton said.

Footballguys view: Kamara is going to have a larger role in 2018, especially with Mark Ingram suspended the first four games of the year. We'll see him maintain a large role even when Ingram comes back in Week 5. The Saints will continue to use a rotation of backs behind Kamara, likely led by Jonathan Williams while Ingram is out.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara was named the 2017 Associated Press Offensive Rookie of the Year Saturday, Feb. 3.
