Huddle Up: Kamara appears to be on track to play in the playoff game, but fantasy players should check the inactive list to make sure. He will be involved in the running and passing game if active and should be a starting option in all leagues.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (illness) reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 twice this week and has been ruled out for Week 17 against the Carolina Panthers. He will likely be placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Jan. 1, and may also be unable to play in the team's playoff game next week.
Huddle Up: This news will not have a huge impact on the Saints this weekend - they are going to secure either the No. 2 or No. 3 seed in the NFC regardless of the outcome of the Carolina game - but it is a crushing blow if he can't clear the COVID protocols in time for the team's first playoff game next weekend. Latavius Murray will be expected to handle a full workload versus the Panthers and could take on a bigger role than usual in the first round of the playoffs even if Kamara plays considering how little practice he will have had before the game.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed for a career-high 155 yards on 22 carries and tied an NFL record with six rushing touchdowns in a 52-33 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 16. He added three catches for 17 yards.
Huddle Up: The best performance of Kamara's career will likely decide many fantasy league titles, and the versatile back will enter Week 17 with a shot at 1,000 rushing yards and 2,000 yards from scrimmage.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 11 times for 54 yards in Week 15 against the Kansas City Chiefs and he added three receptions for 40 yards with a touchdown on six targets.
Huddle Up: Kamara was certainly glad to see Drew Brees back under center, as he just wasn't terribly productive in the four games with Taysom Hill as the starter. Fantasy owners loved seeing Kamara back in the end zone. He'll look to do it again in Week 16 on Friday night against the Minnesota Vikings.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara averaged 7.4 receptions and 72 receiving yards per game while working with QB Drew Brees in the Saints' first nine games of the season. He totaled just 10 receptions and 51 yards while working with QB Taysom Hill the last four weeks.
Huddle Up: Fantasy managers wouldn't be sitting Kamara, anyway, but his uptick will come just in time for the fantasy football semifinals and finals. His role should grow even more with WR Michael Thomas placed on IR Saturday. Make sure he's in your lineups.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 11 times for 50 yards and a touchdown Sunday, Dec. 13, at the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 14. He added seven catches for 44 yards on 10 targets.
Huddle Up: Looking ahead, Drew Brees (ribs) has a chance to play in Week 15 when the Kansas City Chiefs come to town. The matchup is so-so, and at least it is among the most favorable for PPR success.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed for 88 yards and one touchdown on 15 carries against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 13. He also caught two passes for nine yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Kamara has rushed for five touchdowns in the last five games but has not been a big factor in the passing game recently. He will continue to be a focal point for the Saints and should be a starting option in all leagues next week.
