New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara caught 11 passes for 96 yards and added 15 rushing yards in the Saints heartbreaking 26-23 overtime loss to the Rams in the NFC Championship Game. The Saints offense leaned on Kamara and the fantasy stud delivered countless times throughout the game. He was targeted 13 times and accounted for 111 of the teams 290 total yards on offense. Kamara is one of the most dynamic, dual offensive threats in the game and will be considered as a top-3 pick in next year's fantasy draft boards.
New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara will go up against an Eagles defense this Sunday that allowed the 12th fewest fantasy points to running backs during the regular season. The Eagles run defense shut down the Bears running attack in the Wild Card game but they still have allowed five 100-yard rushing games to running back this season. Kamara has been the engine that makes the Saints offense go this season, scoring 18 total touchdowns and racking up 1,592 yards from scrimmage. Kamara will be a top play among running backs in DFS tournaments this weekend.
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and running back Alvin Kamara are both inactive for Week 17 against the Panthers. The Saints have already locked up home-field advantage and the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs, so it doesn't make sense for their studs to play in a meaningless game. Don't expect Michael Thomas or Mark Ingram to play much either, if at all. Wide receiver Ted Ginn is also inactive. Rookie wideouts Tre'Quan Smith and Keith Kirkwood should see plenty of playing time in the passing game, while Dwayne Washington could see a significant role in the backfield behind quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and Taysom Hill.
