Saints' Alvin Kamara: Totals 105 yards in divisional-round loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kamara rushed 11 times for 43 yards while catching four of seven targets for 62 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 29-24 NFC divisional-round loss to the Vikings.

Both Kamara -- who averaged 6.1 yards per carry during the regular season -- and backfield counterpart Mark Ingram were stifled by the Vikings' stout run defense. However, as we experienced on multiple occasions throughout his rookie campaign, Kamara salvaged his fantasy line with a strong showing in the passing game, where his 14-yard touchdown grab gave New Orleans its first lead of the game with just three minutes left in regulation. The Tennessee product and Rookie of the Year candidate will now enter his first full NFL offseason training program with his team out of postseason contention and, especially since the Saints are returning all key offensive cogs in 2018, should indisputably be in the first-round conversation in advance of 2018 fantasy drafts after averaging the most yards per touch in NFL history as a rookie.

Saints' Alvin Kamara: Scores touchdown in playoff win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kamara finished with 10 rushes for 23 yards and a touchdown, and caught one of three targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 31-26 NFC wild-card win over the Panthers.

Kamara was bottled up by Carolina's stout defense, accounting for the lowest yardage of any game he completed this season. Although the rookie's playoff debut didn't go according to script, he still managed to make a significant impact via a two-yard touchdown during the fourth quarter. That score ultimately proved to be the difference in Sunday's tilt, allowing the Saints to advance to the divisional round next weekend, when they'll travel to play the Vikings.

Saints' Alvin Kamara: Compiles 283 total yards in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kamara rushed nine times for 44 yards and a touchdown, brought in six of seven targets for 84 yards and netted 155 yards and a touchdown on four kickoff returns in Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Buccaneers.

The explosive rookie was at it again in the regular-season finale, displaying his eye-popping all-around skill set in all three phases. Kamara got his afternoon started with a 106-yard touchdown on the kickoff following the Buccaneers' opening-possession touchdown, a nifty return in which he feigned taking a knee near the front of the end zone before bursting upfield and outrunning everyone to pay dirt. He followed up with a seven-yard rushing score later in the period, his first touchdown on the ground since Week 13. Kamara also closed out the regular season by posting at least six receptions in each of the last three contests, and his diverse talents will undoubtedly be pivotal to the Saints enjoying a successful playoff run. He'll look to get the second season off to a strong start when New Orleans faces off with the Carolina Panthers -- a team that he racked up three touchdowns against in 2017 over two games -- next Sunday afternoon in an NFC wild-card home showdown.

Saints' Alvin Kamara: Totals 90 scrimmage yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kamara carried 12 times for 32 yards and caught seven of nine targets for an additional 58 yards during Sunday's 23-13 loss to the Falcons.

Kamara managed just 2.7 yards per carry on the ground, but he was the most targeted Saints player on the day and padded his yardage total with some nice gains through the air. The rookie has now gone for at least 76 scrimmage yards in each of the last 12 games he's finished, and his effectiveness as a receiver has made him a top-notch fantasy asset, despite operating in a timeshare with Mark Ingram. Kamara will look to put an exclamation mark on what has been a remarkable rookie season Week 17 against the Buccaneers.

Saints' Alvin Kamara: Finds end zone
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kamara ran for 44 yards on 12 carries and added 45 yards and a touchdown on six catches during Sunday's 31-19 win over the Jets.

Kamara gave the Saints back the lead in the second quarter when he circled out of the backfield and took a quick Drew Brees pass into the end zone for a 10-yard score. It was Kamara's seventh game with a touchdown in his last eight contests. The only game in which he has been held scoreless since Oct. 29 was Week 14's injury-shortened outing against Atlanta. He'll get another shot against the Falcons next week and seems likely to have an opportunity to extend the streak, considering the Saints had directed three passes to Kamara on their opening drive in that contest before the rookie was knocked out of the game with a concussion. Look for the Saints to revisit that matchup in Week 16.
