|If you had Alvin Kamara on your roster in 2017, congratulations on your number one seed in the playoffs. Unfortunately, his injury in Week 14 probably cost you in your run to the championship. But that's in the past and now there's even more reason to love Kamara in 2018.
How efficient was Alvin Kamara in 2017? Since 1970, there have only been 11 seasons where a player had at least 120 rush attempts with an average over 6 yards per carry and four of those seasons were by quarterbacks. When you add in his 13 touchdowns, it's clear to see why he became such a star during his rookie year.
It's unlikely that Kamara will maintain this level of efficiency, but he should see an increase in volume in 2018 to make up for any drop off. Because his ADP will hover around the top 6 picks of most drafts, he won't be the same level of league winner that he was in 2017, but instead, he'll be a cornerstone pick that drafters can rely on.
| Todd Gurley feeling no pain|
Rams RB practices on Wednesday

FFToday's Take: Gurley hasn't played or practiced since Week 15 but it would be a shock if he's not on the field Saturday against the Cowboys. He'll be the top fantasy running back on the board this week in a similar tier with Ezekiel Elliott and Alvin Kamara.
|Teddy Bridgewater to start for Saints|
Saints have clinced the No.1 seed

|The New Orleans Saints plan to start Teddy Bridgewater at quarterback in place of Drew Brees in Sunday’s season finale against the Carolina Panthers. “He’s had a good week, and he’ll play well," Payton said. The Saints have already clinched the No. 1 seed, so there are no playoff implications, which explains why the coaches want to rest Brees. (The Times-Picayune)|
FFToday's Take: Bridgewater hasn't started a game since 2015. He'll face a Panthers team with nothing to play for as well. This is a tricky spot for Bridgewater who will likely be playing with backup personnel on offense. It's likely Alvin Kamara, Mark Ingram and Michael Thomas will be limited in this game if they play at all.
