    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (concussion) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 15, and he has been removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 15 game with the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: Kamara will be ready for the Jets, and fantasy owners should feel confident using him as a RB2 across the board in all formats. He has really emerged as a stud this season and will be flying up draft boards heading into 2018, too.

  • Posted: 12/14/2017 3:19pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (concussion) practiced in full for the second consecutive day Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: It looks like Kamara will be able to return one week after having to leave early against the Falcons last Thursday night, though the damage may have been done to owners in the fantasy playoffs by his exit after just a few touches. Nonetheless, he should return to his usual sizable workload this week, and with New Orleans expected to win decisively, Kamara should play a big role in that effort.

    Updating previous reports, New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (concussion) will play in Week 15, according to head coach Sean Payton.

    Huddle Up: The New York Jets are among the top five in defending the RB position the last five weeks, but Kamara is still useful as an RB2 in fantasy.

  • Posted: 12/13/2017 2:45pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (concussion) was able to take part in a full practice session Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Kamara was knocked out of last Thursday's game in Atlanta, but he vowed to be ready for Week 15 and he appears to be true to his word. He remains a must-start across the board in all fantasy leagues when active.

  • Posted: 12/8/2017 5:40am ET

    Updating previous reports, New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (concussion) is expected to return for Week 15.

    Huddle Up: It'll be a tough matchup against the New York Jets, but Kamara still has RB2 potential.

  • Posted: 12/7/2017 6:57pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (concussion) has been officially ruled out for the remainder of the game against the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Kamara was red hot coming in and was off to a fast start before being knocked out of the game. His fantasy owners can only help he clears concussion protocol in time for Week 15 when the fantasy playoffs begin in most leagues.

  • Posted: 12/7/2017 5:47pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (head) was taken to the locker room in the first quarter of the team's Week 14 game Thursday, Dec. 7, against the Atlanta Falcons, and he's being evaluated for a concussion.

    Huddle Up: Uh oh. The fantasy playoffs could not have gotten out to a worse start for Kamara owners, as the rookie sensation totaled only four touches before having to exit thanks to a helmet-to-helmet hit. Needless to say, Mark Ingram will benefit a big amount as long as he's out, but hopefully Kamara is able to return to the ballgame as soon as possible.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 8:37pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed nine times for 60 yards and two touchdowns and caught five passes for 66 yards in a 31-21 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Kamara continues to deliver explosive plays as both a runner and receiver, and the rookie has more than cemented his status as a RB1.

  • Posted: 11/29/2017 6:43pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara became the first player since retired RB Herschel Walker in 1986 to record 500 receiving yards and 500 rushing yards in his first 11 career games after his performance in Week 12 on Sunday, Nov. 26.

    Huddle Up: Kamara has truly been doing it all for fantasy owners in his rookie season, averaging a whopping 7.1 yards per carry, while also registering 10.1 yards per reception. In all, he's piled up 546 yards on the ground and 548 yards through the air, totaling nine touchdowns (five rushing, four receiving) in the process. Hopefully he can keep up this notable production to cap off what has been a special first year in the NFL.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 8:15pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara ran five times for 87 yards and a touchdown and caught six passes for 101 yards and a score in a 26-20 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Kamara continues to make big plays as both a runner and receiver, and he has become a must-start fantasy back since Adrian Peterson was shipped out of town.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 7:02pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed eight times for 42 yards and caught six passes for 74 yards and a score in a 34-31 win over the Washington Redskins in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Kamara has blossomed since Adrian Peterson was shipped out of town, and the rookie has played his way into the RB1 conversation in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 11/11/2017 8:34pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara is living up to the 'vision' the team had after watching him during workouts during the draft process, according to head coach Sean Payton, and Payton said Kamara has answered the questions he had about his ability to run the ball.

    Huddle Up: Kamara has blossomed since Adrian Peterson was traded, and he has become a must-start option in all formats with RB1 upside in PPR leagues.

  • Posted: 11/7/2017 1:49pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara is one of three players in the NFL this year with at least 300 rushing yards, 300 receiving yards and five total touchdowns.

    Huddle Up: The Saints' backfield as a whole, sans Adrian Peterson, has been fire this year. Surprisingly, Kamara has been more valuable than Mark Ingram in both PPR and standard leagues. The rookie has reached must-start status with extra value in those PPR formats.

  • Posted: 11/6/2017 8:31am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara leads the NFL (among qualified players) with 6.0 yards per rush.

    Huddle Up: Kamara is still second fiddle to Mark Ingram, but both should remain heavily utilized. Kamara has emerged as a low-end RB2 in PPR leagues.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 5:05pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 10 times for 68 yards and a touchdown in Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added six grabs for 84 yards and a score on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: The highlight of the day was a 33-yard reception that went for score, aided by poor tackling on the part of the Bucs. Despite the fact he outshined Mark Ingram, he is still the No. 2 back. As such, he remains more of a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy play going forward.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 2:47pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed for 28 yards and one touchdown on eight carries against the Chicago Bears in Week 8. He also caught three passes for 48 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Kamara has been productive in the running and passing game during his rookie season and will continue to have a similar role moving forward. He should be considered a No. 2 running back in point-per-reception leagues and a weekly flex option in standard leagues.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 2:38pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed for 57 yards on nine carries against the Green Bay Packers in Week 7. He also caught five passes for 50 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Kamara has been a valuable fantasy player for owners this season and will continue to have a similar role in the offense moving forward. He should be a No. 2 running back or flex option in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/15/2017 6:02pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 10 times for 75 yards in Week 6 against the Detroit Lions and he added four grabs for 12 yards on four targets.

    Huddle Up: Kamara looked energized in the win, as he now doesn't have a future Hall of Famer in Adrian Peterson breathing down his neck. He is a solid RB3 or flex play, especially in PPR formats, and the clear-cut handcuff to Mark Ingram going forward.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 9:46am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara had 10 receptions for 71 yards and a touchdown in Week 4's victory over the Miami Dolphins. He added 25 rushing yards on five carries.

    Huddle Up: Kamara possesses a great deal of upside and should be stashed in keeper and dynasty fantasy leagues. The 22-year-old rookie has 20 receptions through the first four games of his career, making him a viable flex option for PPR formats. New Orleans has a bye in Week 5, but Kamara possesses a somewhat favorable matchup versus the Detroit Lions for Week 6.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 1:40pm ET

    New Orleans Saints rookie RB Alvin Kamara rushed twice for 37 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 at Carolina and he added three receptions for five yards on five targets.

    Huddle Up: Kamara isn't getting as many chances as starter Mark Ingram or veteran Adrian Peterson, but when he does get the ball in his hands he has been electric. The rookie from the University of Tennessee has tremendous upside and is a nice long-term fantasy option for those in keeper leagues.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 7:00pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed once for three yards in Week 2 against the Patriots while adding three receptions for 51 yards on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: Kamara is behind starter Mark Ingram and veteran Adrian Peterson for touches in the New Orleans backfield, but he has all kinds of promise and is worth stashing away just in case of one of the veterans goes down in front of him.

  • Posted: 9/11/2017 8:08pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara led all running backs on the team with 31 snaps in their Week 1 game Monday, Sept. 11, against the Minnesota Vikings. He ended up with seven carries for 18 yards, while he also managed to reel in four of his six targets in the passing game for 20 yards.

    Huddle Up: The third-round draft pick's numbers on paper don't really stick out, but it does say something that he logged more snaps than both Mark Ingram (26) and Adrian Peterson (nine) in his first professional game. Kamara figures to be the primary back in on passing downs, while remaining involved with consistent work on the ground. He's definitely someone to at least stash in standard leagues, having the potential to make a bigger impact as the season rolls on.

  • Posted: 8/20/2017 7:54pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara had five carries for 61 yards, including a 50-yard touchdown, and one catch for 22 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers in the preseason Sunday, Aug. 20.

    Huddle Up: Kamara could find it tough to find many carries with Adrian Peterson and Mark Ingram around, but he should see a lot of the action on passing downs. He is a RB5 for now, but he is an injury away from being a potential flex play in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 6/23/2017 6:17pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara spent time working with the receivers during OTAs.

    Huddle Up: Kamara seems like a safe bet to see time as the third-down back, but if he also lines up as a receiver, it would boost his fantasy stock. For now, consider him a RB5 in PPR formats with plenty of upside in keeper leagues.

  • Posted: 4/30/2017 7:12pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara will be used to create mismatches in the passing game, according to general manager Mickey Loomis. 'To fill that role with a player of his caliber, we're pretty excited about it,' Loomis said 'Obviously, we were. That's why we traded up to get him.'

    Huddle Up: With Adrian Peterson and Mark Ingram also in the backfield, Kamara is likely to be relegated to passing downs in 2017. He is worth a late-round flier in PPR formats, but his real value is in keeper leagues.

  • Posted: 4/28/2017 6:54pm ET

    The New Orleans Saints selected Alvin Kamara with the 67th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Friday, April 28.

    Huddle Up: Kamara joins a prolific offense but a crowded backfield that also features Adrian Peterson and Mark Ingram. If Kamara proves his worth, he could become the lead back in a couple of years, but his value is mainly in keeper leagues for now.
