New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara was removed from the Reserve/Suspended list Monday, Sept. 25.
Huddle Up: Kamara should be available for the Week 4 game and probably will receive a big role right away in the offense. He should be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara was placed on the reserve/suspended list on Tuesday, Aug. 29. Kamara will miss the first three games of the 2023 season.
Huddle Up: With Kamara out the first three games, Jamaal Williams is expected to lead the way in the Saints' backfield and get most of the touches, especially near the goal line, making him a viable flex option. However, rookie Kendre Miller should also be involved, but how much remains to be seen. Miller is someone to target late in drafts and stash on the bench until his role is defined.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara was suspended for the first three games of the 2023 season, Friday, Aug. 4, for his role in a Las Vegas nightclub fight in 2022.
Huddle Up: The expectation was that Kamara would be suspended four to six games, so this is a slight win for him and his fantasy managers. The bigger issue now may be the decline in his play last season, which could have been impacted somewhat by his legal situation at the time. Fantasy managers should view him as a decent RB2 option, especially considering the suspension and the likelihood he will lose significant touches during the season to Jamaal Williams and Kendre Miller.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara is expected to be suspended for the night club incident he was involved in last year that led to his pleading no contest to misdemeanor chargers. But how long that suspension is may be determined by his upcoming meeting with commissioner Roger Goodell, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported on Wednesday, Aug. 2.
Huddle Up: Kamara, who missed two games in 2022, finished as RB18 in what was a disappointing year for him. Now he faces a suspension from the league, although it remains to be seen how long that will be for. If he indeed misses time, Jamaal Williams will get the bulk of the work, especially at the goal line, making him a solid flex option, at worst. However, rookie Kendre Miller is a wild card and should be involved to some extent, making him a player to consider late in fantasy drafts as a stash. Kamara will resume his lead-back duties upon his return but should be considered more of an RB2 after what we saw last year, and with Williams lurking to take his goal-line opportunities.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara is meeting with commissioner Roger Goodell Wednesday, Aug. 2.
Huddle Up: Kamara is an interesting RB2 because he should be better than 16th among PPR RBs with more talent around him. However, there is the possibility of a suspension looming.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara is hoping to meet with commissioner Roger Goodell ahead of a potential suspension to share his side of the story of an incident in a nightclub.
Huddle Up: Kamara was 16th among RBs in PPR leagues last year, and he'll present an interesting option as an RB2 again this year. Does he have more to give? Sure. A better team around him would help, but he could be missing multiple games as well.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara agreed to plead no contest to a misdemeanor charge of breach of peace stemming from the Las Vegas nightclub fight in 2022 on Tuesday, July 11. Kamara will perform community service and pay $100,000 to the victim to help with his medical bills, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Strictly from a fantasy perspective, there is no question that a misdemeanor charge - as opposed to a felony - helps his cause to avoid a lengthy suspension from the league. However, there is still a strong possibility he serves some kind of suspension. Set to turn 28 years old in two weeks, Kamara has trended downward in recent years as the Saints have cut back on his heavy involvement as a receiver at the expense of running him more often. With that said, a case can be made for him as a RB2 even if he is handed a four-game suspension in the coming weeks.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara plead not guilty on all charges during his court hearing Thursday, March 2. Kamara was indicted on charges of conspiracy to commit battery and battery resulting in substantial bodily harm in a related incident during the 2022 Pro Bowl in Las Vegas. The trial is set for July 31.
Huddle Up: This will be a situation to monitor as Kamara could face a suspension from the league. Given the trial is during training camp, managers will need to keep a keen eye out for possible disciplinary actions during fantasy draft season.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara was indicted by a Las Vegas grand jury on Wednesday, Feb. 15, on charges related to an incident during last year's Pro Bowl when Kamara and three others were accused of hitting and kicking a man after he and Kamara got into a dispute outside of a hotel elevator. Kamara was indicted on charges of conspiracy to commit battery and battery resulting in substantial bodily harm. A court date is set for March 2.
Huddle Up: This case was hanging over Kamara's head all season long, but hearings in the case were continued several times, delaying the process through the previous season. Now, it looks like there might have be a conclusion to this situation by the time the 2023 season rolls around, and it's possible Kamara could face a suspension depending upon the outcome, which is something fantasy owners should keep in mind when drafting him.
