Alvin Kamara Fantasy Football Impact

Chris Nalls / March 13, 2019

The New Orleans Saints have one of the brightest young running backs in the NFL. Former Tennessee standout will have the majority of the workload for the Saints now after reports came out that former teammate Mark Ingram has signed a contract with the Baltimore Ravens.

The fantasy impact that Kamara will have for any current fantasy football owners team will be huge again. In Kamara’s rookie year the former third-rounder rushed for 728 yards and scored eight touchdowns. On the receiving side, Kamara had 826 receiving yards and crossed the goal line five times. That’s a combination of 1,554 all-purpose yards and 13 total touchdowns. Now, remember this happened when Kamara was sharing the load with Mark Ingram.

In 2018 Kamara had another superb year. This time rushing for 883 yards and scoring 14 touchdowns on the ground. Through the air, Kamara had 709 receiving yards with four touchdowns. A total combination of 1,592 all-purpose yards and a whopping 18 touchdowns. Just to give you an idea how insane Kamara’s numbers are Tennessee Titans Quarterback Marcus Mariota has not through for 18 touchdowns since 2016 crazy right?

Now with Ingram gone for good Kamara will be the feature back as he was intended to be. If you own him in dynasty leagues consider yourself lucky,  if you only play in redraft leagues, you have to consider taking Kamra number one overall. Kamara is already a top 5 fantasy running back, and after the 2019 season, Kamara could most likely be the number one overall running back in all of fantasy football for 2020.
