Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle) practiced all week and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll return for Sunday’s smash spot at home for the Falcons. Kamara might cede a bit more work to RB Latavius Murray than he was before the injury, but he remains a high-end RB1. Murray is in the RB3/Flex mix in this week's plus matchup.
Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle, knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Bears after missing practice all week. He tried to battle through the ankle injury last weekend and ended up tweaking his knee. We’ll see if Kamara can make it back for Week 8, but note that New Orleans has a Week 9 bye. RB Latavius Murray will step in as the lead back on Sunday. It’s not an ideal matchup, but he should be looking at 15-20 total touches, making him a RB2 for the week.
Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle, knee) didn't practice on Wednesday. He entered last weekend's game with an ankle injury and tweaked his knee during the win over the Jaguars. Kamara probably could play against the Bears on Sunday -- but New Orleans might opt to let him heal up. We'll get another update tomorrow. RB Latavius Murray should be owned in all leagues and would be a RB2 for Week 7 if Kamara doesn't play.
Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Jaguars. After being added to the injury report on Thursday, he didn’t practice on Friday. So it looks like Kamara is in real danger of missing Sunday’s game. We’ll get his official game status by noon ET on Sunday. If Kamara is out, Latavius Murray will be a solid fantasy play as New Orleans’ lead back.
Saints RB Alvin Kamara was added to the injury report on Thursday as limited with an ankle. That's all we know at this point. We'll get another update on Kamara tomorrow. Latavius Murray would step in as New Orleans' lead back if Kamara can't play agains the Jaguars on Sunday.
Saints RB Alvin Kamara (concussion) practiced all week and isn’t listed on the final injury report. HC Sean Payton confirmed on Friday that his rookie has cleared the concussion protocol and will play against the Jets this weekend. Kamara remains a high-end RB1.
The Saints added Alvin Kamara to the backfield with the 67th overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft. Kamara is a tough case to crack. He flashes elite burst and change-of-direction on tape and tested as an 83rd percentile athlete among RBs. But he totaled just 210 carries in 2 seasons at Tennessee after transferring from Alabama. His time at Tuscaloosa included a knee injury and a suspension for “behavioral reasons.” Kamara also suffered a sprained left LCL and meniscus this past year. He looks like a boom/bust prospect as a runner but should at least contribute in the passing game after totaling 74 catches for 683 yards (9.2 yards per catch) and 7 TDs over the last 2 years. That’ll be his only shot to make an impact in 2017 in a backfield with Mark Ingram and Adrian Peterson. Ingram is signed for just 2 more years, though, and Peterson is 32 years old. Kamara definitely has a shot to develop into the Saints’ lead back of the future, making him an intriguing dynasty pick.
