2023 Outlook
Depth Chart
Kamara recently pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor battery charge stemming from an incident in 2022 and will have to pay $100,000 to the victim. We are currently awaiting word from the league on any disciplinary action.

Last year was the first of his six-year career that Kamara didn't make the Pro Bowl. He was a top-10 fantasy running back every year during that span, but last season he finished 16th as he only scored 4 touchdowns despite 280 touches. Inconsistent quarterback play from Jameis Winston who suffered a season-ending back injury in Week 3 and Andy Dalton - 18 touchdowns and 9 interceptions in 14 games - didn't help matters.

Kamara excels in the receiving game and he'll need Carr to return to his 2021 form, in order to maximize his fantasy potential. He'll also need to battle Jamaal Williams and rookie Kendre Miller for touches all the while dodging Roger Goodell's discipline hammer. These factors are keeping Kamara's fantasy value in check during drafting season but he does have low-end RB1 upside in PPR leagues should he cleanly navigate these obstacles.

News From The Past 90 Days
No RBs expected to the get the franchise tag
Deep free agent RB class in 2024
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Feb 26, 2:53 pm

New York Giants
This offseason stands in contrast to 2023, when Josh Jacobs, Saquon Barkley, Tony Pollard received franchise tags. This offseason, it appears no RBs will be tagged, making this one of the finest and deepest RB classes in the history of free agency. (Adam Schefter on X)

FFToday's Take: The 2024 free agent RB class is stacked with Jacobs, Barkley, Pollard, Derrick Henry and Austin Ekeler. The question is, what kind of deals are these veterans going to get? We've seen the market slowly dry up for veteran RBs over the last few years with Jacobs and Barkley settling for one-year deals just last season. Alvin Kamara and Aaron Jones are also cut candidates given the money their going to count against the salary cap this season.


Injury Alvin Kamara not expected to play in Week 18
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Jan 7, 10:38 am

New Orleans
Alvin Kamara is not playing today, per source. Kendre Miller is active today, per source (Nick Underhill on X)

FFToday's Take: Kamara missed practice all week with an ankle injury. The running back room will now feature veteran Jamaal Williams and the rookie Miller. Expect them to split carries and each can be considered Flex options for Week 18.


Injury Chris Olave is Inactive for Week 15
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 17, 11:31 am

New Orleans
Saints WR Chris Olave and RT Ryan Ramczyk both officially inactive. RB Jamaal Williams active. Healthy inactives: QB Jake Haener, S Cam Dantzler, LB Monty Rice. Previously ruled out RB Kendre Miller (ankle) and DE Isaiah Foskey (quad). (Mike Triplett on X)

FFToday's Take: Olave was a gametime decision this week but will sit this one out against the Giants. With the Saints thin at receiver, A.T. Perry and Rashid Shaheed are likely to see the most WR snaps but expect a lot of Alvin Kamara and Taysom Hill in this game.


Injury Taysom Hill not expected to play in Week 14
Foot injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Dec 9, 11:48 pm

New Orleans
Saints’ TE Taysom Hill, listed as questionable for Sunday due to a foot and left-hand injury, is not expected to play vs. the Panthers, per source. Saints’ TE Juwan Johnson, listed as questionable due to a quad injury, is expected to play vs. the Panthers, per source. (Adam Schefter on X)

FFToday's Take: Hill will be a big loss for the Saints offense who is already down wide receivers Michael Thomas and Rashid Shaheed. Chris Olave is dealing with an illness but expected to play. Expect a lot of Alvin Kamara in this game with Derek Carr at quarterback. Johnson is moderately interesting as a TE2 if you're in a desperate situation at the position.
