Saints RB Alvin Kamara carried the ball 16 times for 74 yards in Sunday's win vs. the Eagles. The former Pro Bowler added another 7 yards on 1 catch in the receiving game. The touch opportunity was certainly there for Kamara in Week 17 at a minimum. Some could call his output a success considering the Eagles' defense entered Week 17 ranked 4th-best in Football Outsiders' run defense DVOA in the 3 weeks prior. Even so, a PPR performance under double-digits is less than ideal in the grand scheme of things. Kamara will have a chance to rebound in Week 18 vs. the Panthers.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (quadriceps/NIR-personal) was a full participant on Friday and is set to play in Week 17 vs. the Eagles. Much has been made of Kamara's Instagram account being completely wiped and the fact he didn't practice at all until Friday. But as far as we know, the former Pro Bowler is going to suit up. 2022 has been an up-and-down journey for Kamara managers. However, 20+ touches over the last 2 weeks should inspire some confidence for strong volume if nothing else in a neutral matchup against the Eagles. Consider Kamara a low-end RB1 in Week 17.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (quadriceps/NIR-personal) did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday. It's unknown how much of his absence is due to injury or the personal issue he's been excused from practice for. Hopefully, we'll have more information tomorrow. Kamara is considered an RB1 candidate if he is able to suit up in Week 17 vs. the Eagles. Keep tabs on RB David Johnson on your waiver wire if something prevents Kamara from playing.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara ran for 76 yards and a TD on 20 carries in Saturday's win over the Browns. That marked just 3.8 yards per rush, his 7th game among the past 8 with less than 4 yards per carry. But the TD was Kamara's 1st since Week 8, when he crossed the goal line 3 times against the Raiders. That had been Kamara's only game this season with a TD. Week 17 will bring a Philadelphia defense that has been friendlier to opponent rushing than passing. But it's not nearly as good a matchup for RB scoring as the one that allowed Kamara just 3.8 yards per rush this week.

The forecast for today's Saints-Browns game calls for temperatures in the single digits with sustained winds of 20-25 mph and gusts of 40+. The wind chill is well below zero. They're brutal conditions that will significantly limit the passing and kicking games. Check out our projections for all the Saints and Browns players.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara racked up 21 carries for 91 yards in Sunday's win over the Falcons. He drew 84% of New Orleans' RB attempts, ceding just 4 to David Johnson. Kamara added just 13 yards on 2 receptions. The Saints threw only 19 passes for the game, which didn't help. But Kamara got only 10.5% target share and was sharing passing-down snaps. He'll remain a decent fantasy option against the Browns and Eagles the next 2 weeks. But the ceiling is much lower than it has been.

Saints RBs Dwayne Washington and Eno Benjamin are inactive for today's game vs. the Falcons. That leaves just Alvin Kamara and David Johnson in New Orleans' backfield. Kamara should be in for plenty of touches today.

The Saints claimed RB Eno Benjamin off waivers. He's bounced from Arizona to Houston to New Orleans over the past month. Benjamin has a chance to climb to #2 on the Saints' RB depth chart (ahead of David Johnson and Dwayne Washington) by the end of the season, but he's only worth stashing in deep fantasy leagues.

The Saints signed RB David Johnson to the active roster. He'll help New Orleans replace RB Mark Ingram, who's likely to miss the rest of the season with an MCL injury. We wouldn't bother adding Johnson to fantasy rosters even as an Alvin Kamara handcuff. RB Dwayne Washington is also on the active roster.

Saints RB Mark Ingram suffered a "slight tear" of his MCL in Monday night's loss to the Bucs, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Ingram doesn't need surgery but is expected to be sidelined 4-6 weeks, which likely ends his season. Ingram hasn't been a fantasy option this season, but he's put a slight dent in RB Alvin Kamara's usage. So consider this news a moderate boost to Kamara's rest-of-season outlook.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 12 times for 26 yards in a Week 13 loss to Tampa Bay. He added 2 catches (on 3 targets) for 11 yards. In a frustrating reality, Kamara was nearly splitting snaps with Mark Ingram going into halftime (13-10). The edge wound up being 35-25 in Kamara’s favor, but the game plan (combined with the matchup) proved too much to overcome. The former RB1 has now been held under 13 PPR points 5 straight. Week 14 turns up a bye, followed by a more favorable draw vs. Atlanta.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara endured another rough outing on the ground in Sunday's loss to the 49ers. He managed only 13 yards on 7 carries, averaging a season-worst 1.9 yards per rush. It was his 4th straight game with 42 yards or less and 5th straight with less than 3.5 yards per carry. Kamara did, at least, add a team-high 6 receptions (on 7 targets) for 37 yards. A Week 13 matchup with the Buccaneers is at least friendlier than the 49ers. Kamara's best remaining spots, though, come after the Week 14 bye.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara endured another lackluster rushing day in Sunday's win over the Rams. His 42 yards on 12 carries came out to just 3.5 per rush. Kamara fared better as a receiver, though, catching 4 balls for 47 yards among 5 targets. His 89 total yards marked an improvement over the previous 2 games. Kamara still hasn't found the end zone, though, outside of his 3-TD game against the Saints in Week 8. A Week 12 matchup with San Francisco doesn't look especially promising for a rebound. David Johnson carried once for a 4-yard loss and caught his lone target for 11 yards in his New Orleans debut.

The Saints signed RB David Johnson to their practice squad, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports. Johnson turns 31 in a month and mustered just 3.4 yards per carry on 67 attempts with the Texans last year. New Orleans is expected to be without RB Mark Ingram for another week or 2, so Johnson might find his way onto the active roster. But he remains well off the fantasy radar.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara managed only 26 yards on 8 carries in Sunday's loss to the Steelers and added just 19 more yards on 3 receptions among 4 targets. His team got dominated in time of possession -- 38:56 to 21:04 -- total plays (79-45) and yards (379-186). A Week 11 matchup with a tough Rams defense doesn't look much friendlier. We'll see whether the Saints change anything on offense in the coming week, as well as where Kamara lands in our Week 11 rankings.

Saints RB Mark Ingram (knee) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Steelers. RB Alvin Kamara posted a season-high 88% snap rate with Ingram out last week.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara's next court date has been pushed back again to January 23. The judge in the case also set a trial date of March 1. It continues to look like any possible Kamara suspension would not come until 2023.

Saints RB Mark Ingram is expected to miss 3-4 weeks with an MCL sprain suffered in Sunday's win over the Raiders, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Ingram's absence leaves Dwayne Washington as New Orleans' #2 RB -- and should mean even more work for RB Alvin Kamara.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara racked up all 3 of his team's TDs in Sunday's shutout win over the Raiders. He scored once on the ground, amid 18 carries for 62 yards. Kamara did more damage as a receiver, though, delivering a 9-96-2 line on a team-high 10 targets. WR Chris Olave caught 5 balls for 52 yards on 7 targets, 2nd most on the team. No other Saint topped 4 looks. New Orleans hosts Baltimore on Monday night, a matchup that has been friendlier for rushing than passing.

Saints RB Mark Ingram is questionable to return to Sunday's game vs. the Raiders with a knee injury. Stay tuned for an update. RB Alvin Kamara should pick up more touches with Ingram out.
