Week 12 DraftKings Picks

RB

Cash Cornerstones

Alvin Kamara, Saints ($8,200)

It’s possible (although maybe not optimal) to play both Kamara and Christian McCaffrey. But if you’re picking between the 2, go Kamara and the $2,300 savings.

He’s carried just 17 times in 2 games back from knee and ankle injuries — but he’s racked up 18 targets and played 71% of New Orleans’ offensive snaps.

Kamara will continue to play a huge role in the passing game and should see more work on the ground against the Panthers this weekend. Carolina is much tougher against the pass than the run, so the Saints figure to deploy a run-heavy attack here. The Panthers sit dead last in Football Outsiders’ run defense rankings and have coughed up 4.8 yards per carry to RBs on the season.

The Saints are sporting a week-high 28.5-point implied total, making Kamara a strong TD bet.
