Summary

Kamara had a down year in 2019, which can be chalked up to a dip in touchdown production, both when Drew Brees was in and when he was sidelined, and leg injuries that seemed to sap him of his explosiveness long after he returned to the field after a two-game absence. He should be healthier in 2020, although his ADP is still in the top five, reflecting almost no down year discount. Kamara should still be considered a safe cornerstone first-round pick, although the addition of Emmanuel Sanders could take the edge off of his receiving upside, as the team has lacked a reliable #2 receiver during the time that Kamara emerged as a key part of the passing game.
