    Saints' Alvin Kamara: Feeling healthy again

    Alvin Kamara posted Tuesday on his personal Twitter account that he's back at full strength after playing "on one leg... at 75 percent" in 2019.Kamara dealt with ankle and knee injuries in October, missing two games before a conveniently timed Week 9 bye. He then churned out 4.9 yards per carry but just 5.2 per catch over the final seven games of the regular season, scoring four of his six touchdowns in Weeks 16 and 17. The 2017 third-round pick should bounce back from the least impressive season of his pro career, now entering the final year of his rookie contract. Of course, a holdout could be around the corner if the New Orleans Saints don't sign Kamara to an extension soon.

    Saints' Alvin Kamara: Compiles 55 yards in overtime loss

    Alvin Kamara carried seven times for 21 yards and a touchdown and brought in eight of nine targets for 34 yards in the New Orleans Saints' 26-20 overtime wild-card loss to the Vikings on Sunday.Kamara concluded the season with his third straight game with a touchdown, though his season-long numbers were a bit of a letdown. The third-year back managed 1,330 total yards and six total touchdowns -- career lows -- but it's encouraging for fantasy owners that this is his floor. The Tennessee product hauled in 81 receptions for the third straight season and has established himself as a premier dual-threat back. He has one year left on his rookie deal, and with Michael Thomas' massive payday last off-season, Kamara may be eyeing a new contract sooner than later.

    Saints' Alvin Kamara: Scores twice in blowout victory

    Alvin Kamara rushed eight times for 39 yards and two touchdowns, adding two receptions for 18 yards on three targets in the New Orleans Saints' 42-10 win over the Panthers on Sunday.After failing to score for nine straight weeks, Kamara has now produced back-to-back two-touchdown efforts on the ground in Weeks 16-17. He closes the regular season on a high note, though most of his scoring output has come in the final two weeks of the campaign. The talented third-year back ends the 2019 regular season with a career-low six total touchdowns after producing 22 in his first two seasons. Regardless, he'll head into the playoffs on a hot streak.

    Saints' Alvin Kamara: Ends touchdown drought

    Alvin Kamara rushed 11 times for 80 yards and two touchdowns, grabbing six of seven targets for an additional 30 yards in the New Orleans Saints' 38-28 win over the Titans on Sunday.Kamara broke out of his scoring slump in fine fashion Sunday, delivering a pair of touchdown runs while racking up over 100 yards from scrimmage in the process. Watching the Tennessee product explode against the Titans had to be a relief for fantasy owners, as Kamara hadn't scored since Week 3 and broke 100 yards from scrimmage for the first time since Week 12. He'll look to keep the momentum going in Week 17 against a pedestrian Panthers run defense.

    Saints' Alvin Kamara: Totals 89 yards in blowout victory

    Alvin Kamara rushed 14 times for 66 yards and caught all five of his targets for 23 yards in the New Orleans Saints' 34-7 win over the Colts on Monday.It was another disappointing performance for Kamara, as he failed to cross the goal-line for the ninth consecutive game. His 73 receptions have boosted his value in PPR formats, though he still entered Week 15 as the overall RB17 in 2019. The usage has been there, as Kamara has seen nearly 19 total touches per game across his last five contests, but the production has been highly underwhelming for fantasy owners who spent a first-round pick on him. He'll try to rebound in a Week 16 showdown with the Titans.

    Saints' Alvin Kamara: Season-low output in shootout

    Alvin Kamara rushed 13 times for 25 yards, adding four receptions for 18 yards in the New Orleans Saints' 48-46 loss to the 49ers on Sunday.Kamara couldn't get much going in Sunday's close loss, accounting for his lowest output from scrimmage all season. The third-year back added to his eight-game streak of scoreless performances dating to Week 3, and his stats during that span have been concerning. Over his last eight contests, Kamara has averaged just 85.5 yards from scrimmage per game, though his 6.4 receptions per contest have buoyed some otherwise lackluster efforts in PPR formats. He can't be benched given his immense upside, though he'll be a volatile fantasy playoff option when New Orleans takes on Indianapolis in Week 15.

    Saints' Alvin Kamara: Totals 84 yards in win

    Alvin Kamara rushed 11 times for 61 yards and brought in four of eight targets for 23 yards in the New Orleans Saints' 26-18 win over the Falcons on Thursday.Though Kamara's scrimmage yards were respectable, it was a disappointing performance for the third-year back. He snagged just four passes after averaging nine receptions across his last three contests, though his lack of involvement in the passing game was likely due to Drew Brees' struggles. Kamara continues to provide fantasy owners with useful stat lines, though it's concerning that he hasn't scored since Week 3. He'll try to buck that trend in a crucial Week 14 home matchup with the surging 49ers.

    Saints' Alvin Kamara: Delivers in passing game

    Alvin Kamara ran for 54 yards on 11 carries and caught all nine of his targets for 48 yards during Sunday's 34-31 win against the Panthers.Those who selected Kamara over Christian McCaffrey in fantasy drafts this past summer are still kicking themselves. Though the third-year back hasn't been quite as dominant as his NFC South counterpart through 12 weeks of the 2019 campaign, Kamara continues to churn out excellent fantasy performances by virtue of his pass-catching acumen. Kamara has not exceeded 75 rushing yards in any game since accounting for 97 yards in the season opener against Houston, but he's averaged an amazing eight receptions per game over his past five appearances, after compiling just five catches per game Weeks 1 through 4. He projects to be a top-flight running back option for Week 13, with the New Orleans Saints taking on a Falcons defense that has conceded 27-plus points in five of its past seven outings.

    Saints' Alvin Kamara: Compiles 122 total yards in win

    Alvin Kamara rushed 13 times for 75 yards, secured all 10 targets for 47 yards and returned three kickoffs for 32 yards in the New Orleans Saints' 34-17 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday. He also fumbled once, but it was recovered by the offense.Kamara paced the Saints in receptions while checking in second to Michael Thomas in both receiving yardage and targets. The versatile back also out-carried backup Latavius Murray by a 13-10 margin, and game script likely led to the latter seeing as many totes as he did. Sunday marked Kamara's first game with double-digit rushing touches since Week 6, with the third-year back's two-game absence due to knee and ankle injuries factored in. Kamara will look to continue building his numbers in a Week 12 battle versus the Panthers.

    Saints' Alvin Kamara: Receiving output salvages day

    Alvin Kamara ran for 24 yards on four carries and corralled eight of 10 targets for 50 receiving yards during Sunday's 26-9 loss to Atlanta.The ground attack was practically nonexistent for New Orleans in Week 10, as Kamara and Latavius Murray combined for just 36 yards on nine attempts against a Falcons defense that had conceded more than 150 team rushing yards to Seattle during its last game Oct. 27. Kamara was able to compile double-digit targets for the second time this season, but the continued lack of rushing production is perplexing, as he has not exceeded 70 rushing yards since Week 1 and possesses just one score on the ground all year. Coming into his second game back from knee and ankle injuries that forced him to sit out Weeks 7 and 8, Kamara may once again find trouble getting much going as a rusher with the New Orleans Saints facing off against a Tampa Bay defense that allowed just 37 combined rushing yards to Cardinals running backs Kenyan Drake and David Johnson on Sunday.
