Saints HC Sean Payton revealed after Sunday's win over the Jaguars that RB Alvin Kamara "tweaked his knee" in addition to the "swollen ankle" that made him questionable for the game. Saints Wire reports that Payton "doesn't appear worried" about Kamara's status for Week 7, but the RB did play a season-low 59% of the snaps against Jacksonville. We'll watch his status leading up to Sunday's game at Chicago.
Saints RB Alvin Kamara has been indicted on battery charges stemming from his role in the assault that took place last February in Las Vegas. So the case is officially heading to court, with the 1st court date set for March 2, according to Pro Football Talk. "He intends to vigorously fight the allegations at trial as he was defending himself and others at the time of the incident," Kamara's lawyers said in a statement. We'll see how this case unfolds -- and how the NFL responds. Remember that the league does not need a legal conviction to suspend Kamara. And, considering there's video of the incident, it seems more likely than not that Kamara is suspended for part of the upcoming 2023 season. Draft accordingly.
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.
