    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
