Summary

Alvin Kamara, the Saints' third round pick last year excelled in Coach Sean Payton's offense and was named the 2017 Rookie of the Year by the Associated Press. Kamara had more carries (120) for more yards (728) and more receptions (82) for more yards (826) with the Saints than he had collegiately at Tennessee. He averaged 6.1 yards per carry and over 10.0 yards per reception. Kamara had better production for the Saints as a rookie than either Reggie Bush or Darren Sproles in any of their seasons. He began the season primarily as the receiving back and averaged under four rushes per game through the first four games. However, for the remainder of the season he averaged 8.8 rushes per game. Despite Ingram's potential suspension, he may not see many more touches than that, but he will be the first option as long as Ingram is out and possibly after he returns. Prior to Ingram's announced suspension, the two should have been considered both as the Saint's lead running backs. Kamara's potential probably increased slightly above Ingram's at this point.
