Buy/Sell/Hold Report #4

By Draft Sharks Staff 1:10pm EDT 10/30/19

BUY Alvin Kamara, RB, Saints

Three weeks ago, Kamara was sittin’ pretty. Even without scoring TDs for 2 weeks (or in any game outside of Seattle, for that matter), he tallied 6 receptions and 104 total yards in the easy win over Tampa. Kamara ranked top-8 among PPR backs.

Then came a rough 66 total yards in the win at Jacksonville, where Kamara entered on a questionable ankle and left with a knee issue as well. He has missed the past 2 contests, allowing Latavius Murray to rack up 150+ total yards and 2 TDs for 2 straight weeks. And that’s part of why it’s a good time to check in on Kamara’s price.

Each of Murray’s past 2 games delivered 33 more rushing yards than any outing Kamara’s had since Week 1. Does that mean New Orleans had been feeding the wrong back? Nah. Murray has made the most of 27 and 21 carries the past 2 weeks, as well as 6 and 12 targets. But Kamara’s the #1 when he’s healthy. That’s why Murray never topped 8 carries or 3 targets in any of Kamara’s 6 active games, and Murray’s high in opportunities came in that aforementioned Jacksonville game.

Kamara turned up initially questionable for Sunday’s win over the Cardinals and is expected back for Week 10. When he returns, he’s the backfield leader in New Orleans. And he’ll return to find an offense with Drew Brees at the helm.

The remaining schedule looks negative by our strength-of-schedule formula, but Kamara’s receiving role makes him basically matchup proof.
