New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 16 times for 71 yards and a touchdown and caught five of his eight targets for 51 yards and a score in a 33-22 win over the Washington Football Team in Week 5.
Huddle Up: A week after being held without a catch, Kamara had a season-high five grabs. His role in the passing game has dipped a bit this year, but he never been busier on the ground.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 26 times for 120 yards in a 27-21 overtime loss to the New York Giants in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Kamara had his best rushing performance of the season, but he also failed to catch pass, and Taysom Hill vultured a couple of touchdowns. Kamara will offer RB1 upside every week, but it looks like his receiving numbers are going to suffer with Jameis Winston at quarterback.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara ran 24 times for 89 yards in Week 3, at the New England Patriots, on Sunday, Sept. 26. He added three receptions for 29 yards and a TD.
Huddle Up: On to Week 4 we go when the Saints finally return to New Orleans and face the New York Giants. Kamara is a sound RB1 in all PPR formats next week, but it might look something like this game where he has to earn every yard.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed for five yards on eight carries against the Carolina Panthers in Week 2. He also caught four passes for 25 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: The Saints struggled on offense against Carolina which let to Kamara only receiving 12 touches. He should have a better performance next week and will still be a starting option in all leagues.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara faces the Carolina Panthers in Week 2, and he has scored multiple touchdowns in five straight meetings with Carolina, logging at least 20 touches in all five games.
Huddle Up: Kamara logged 23 touches and found the end zone in the opener against Green Bay, and a similar performance is probably his floor against Carolina. He is a good bet to finish as a RB1 in Week 2.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 20 times for 83 yards and caught three passes for eight yards and a touchdown in a 38-3 win over the Green Bay Packers in Week 1.
Huddle Up: His three catches did little to quiet concerns that his receiving numbers will suffer without Drew Brees under center, but the Saints didn't have to throw the ball much overall after jumping out to a big lead. He still saw a sizeable workload and should continue to be one of the busier backs in the league.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara led all running backs last season with nine drops, per Pro Football Reference.
Huddle Up: To put that number into some perspective, Kamara was charged with eight drops over the previous two seasons combined. It's not a huge deal insomuch that he still caught 77.6 percent of his targets, but it does illustrate that the quality - not to mention the quantity - of his targets dropped while Taysom Hill kept the seat warm for an injured Drew Brees. Kamara is a riskier bet now than at any point since his rookie season, but he still deserves to go in the middle to later part of the first round in fantasy drafts.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara scored a league-high 16 rushing touchdowns inside the red zone in 2020, according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: Kamara is more than just a great receiving option out of the backfield and this is more proof of that. The 25-year-old has yet to log 200 carries in any of his four seasons but has somehow managed to post at least 14 rushing scores in two of those years. If we forgive Kamara for his injury-plagued 2019 campaign, he has produced at least 13 total TDs in every other season.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara has tallied 58 catches of at least 15 yards since entering the league in 2017 - the most by any running back over that span - according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: Kamara is the proud owner of 326 catches since becoming a Saint, so he's had a lot of opportunities to create big plays. With that said, the four-time Pro Bowler deserves plenty of credit for this stat as he has forced a league-high 79 missed tackles on those receptions. The likely retirement of Drew Brees figures to drop Kamara from the elite group of fantasy running backs, but it shouldn't keep him from serving as a solid RB1 option.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara recorded 734 yards after the catch this season, which led the NFL.
Huddle Up: Kamara is an outstanding player with the ball in his hands and should continue to be a focal point on offense for the Saints. He likely will be a first-round pick in fantasy drafts and will be a weekly starting option.
