Kendre Miller Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Klint Kubiak is expected to be named the Saints' new OC, according to multiple reports. Kubiak is currently the 49ers' passing-game coordinator, so the move can't become official until after the Super Bowl. The 36-year-old son of Gary Kubiak has 10 seasons of NFL coaching experience. That includes serving as Vikings OC back in 2021. That team ranked 12th in total yards and 14th in points, ranking near the middle of the pack in run/pass split.

Saints rookie RB Kendre Miller ran for 73 yards and a TD on 13 carries in Sunday's win over the Falcons. He trailed Jamaal Williams by a carry but beat the veteran by 47 yards (5.6 per carry vs. 1.9). Miller also trailed Williams in receiving, catching his only target for 6 yards. Williams caught all three of his targets but totaled only 8 yards. Williams closes out a season that saw him fall well short of his previous career lows in yards per carry, yards per catch, and rushing success rate -- among other categories. He has two more years on his contract, with 2024 likely locked in because of the potential dead money if New Orleans were to dump him. But Miller looks like the higher-upside player and could simply pass Williams on the depth chart this offseason. Miller endured a quiet rookie campaign thanks to a series of injuries. But that could make him a dynasty "buy" this offseason. Don't be afraid to price-check the 2023 third-round NFL Draft pick. And keep Miller in mind as a potential later-round value in early 2024 best ball drafting.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle) will not play vs. the Falcons today, according to insider Nick Underhill.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Falcons. He didn’t practice all week, but HC Dennis Allen said Friday that they’ll wait until game day before making a final decision on Kamara’s status. His absence would leave Jamaal Williams as New Orleans’ lead back. RB Kendre Miller (ankle, illness) is also listed as questionable for Week 18.

Saints RB Kendre Miller (ankle) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Rams. He got in two limited practices this week, so we'll see if he can make it back for Week 17. New Orleans will continue to roll with RBs Alvin Kamara and Jamaal Williams tonight.

Saints RB Kendre Miller (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Rams after getting in a pair of limited practices. The rookie has been out since Week 9 and will likely return to a minimal role if he plays tomorrow night.

Saints RB Kendre Miller suffered an ankle injury in the second half of Sunday's game vs. the Bears. He was operating as the No. 2 RB before exiting, taking one carry for no gain and catching his only target for 31 yards. We'll update Miller's status when we learn more.

Saints HC Dennis Allen said Monday that he wants to balance out the backfield work a bit more going forward. RB Alvin Kamara racked up 17 carries and 14 targets in the Thursday night loss to the Saints, while RB Jamaal Williams finished with five carries and RB Kendre Miller none. Allen said that Williams was on a snap count in his first game back from a hamstring injury and that Miller had shoulder irritation pre-game. Any work those guys take from Kamara figures to come on the ground. Kamara should continue to dominate passing-game work.

Saints RB Jamaal Williams (hamstring) is active for tonight's game against the Jaguars. He put in limited practices all week, coming off four games on IR. Try to avoid using Williams in fantasy lineups. His return figures to marginalize rookie Kendre Miller, at least early on. We're still easily playing Alvin Kamara in most cases, though.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says the Saints will activate RB Jamaal Williams from IR and play him tonight against the Jaguars. Williams missed the past four games with a hamstring injury. This will mark the first time this year that he and Alvin Kamara are active together. What that means for their work shares remains to be seen. We're still easily starting Kamara across formats, though, and trying to avoid Williams in fantasy football lineups. See where each player lands in our updated Week 7 RB rankings.

Saints RB Jamaal Williams (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Jaguars. He was limited in practice this week after going down with a hamstring injury back in Week 2. We'll see if Williams is able to play tomorrow, but he shouldn't be in fantasy lineups.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara shouldered a massive workload in Week 5, tallying 25 touches for 97 total yards vs. the Patriots. He didn’t see nearly as much receiving work in the game (3 catches), but that’s likely due to the fact that the Saints never trailed at any point in their 34-0 blowout win. Rookie Kendre Miller had a tremendous game, logging 37 rushing yards and contributing 4 catches for 54 receiving yards in the contest. With Jamaal Williams still sidelined with a hamstring injury, it’s conceivable that both Miller and Kamara will be solid options again next week vs. the Texans.
