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.
QB Drew Brees, RB Alvin Kamara and WR Ted Ginn are all healthy scratches for today's meaningless finale against the Panthers. RB Mark Ingram and WR Michael Thomas are active, but don't expect them to play. Dwayne Washington figures to serve as New Orleans' lead back, with Tre'Quan Smith, Keith Kirkwood, Austin Carr and TommyLee Lewis at WR.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Saints RB Alvin Kamara (concussion) is expected to play against the Jets this weekend. The rookie put in his 2nd straight full practice on Thursday. Kamara -- and Mark Ingram -- should be busy with New Orleans whopping 16-point favorites.
Saints RB Alvin Kamara (concussion) put in a full practice on Wednesday. If he hasn't completely cleared the concussion protocol yet, he's close. Kamara is on track to play against the Jets this weekend. He'll, of course, be an elite RB1 for that one.
Saints RB Alvin Kamara sustained a concussion on the 1st drive of Thursday night’s game in Atlanta. He carried once for 2 yards and caught 3 balls for 25 yards before exiting — but this is still a brutal turn of events for fantasy owners. Kamara will have 10 days to try to pass through the protocol ahead of Week 15’s meeting with the Jets.
