Alvin Kamara suspension more likely to occur in 2023

Fantasy Impact:

After the scheduled hearing had been delayed at least two months in early-August is was a safe assumption that Kamara would be available for the Saints Week 1 matchup, against Atlanta, and that any potential suspension would likely be invoked at a later point in the season. Kamara started 13 games last season, missing four due to injury, but still finished as the RB8 in fantasy football. This ongoing legal situation, along with the unknown of his suspension has dropped his 2022 ADP to RB12. If the suspension were to take place in 2023, as reports suggest, Kamara could be a league winner.

Jalen Hurts flawless in preseason debut

Jalen Hurts completed all six of his pass attempts during his lone drive of the night, totaling 80 yards to go along with a TD.

Fantasy Impact: Hurts’ stock continues to rise after his preseason debut. The breakout fantasy star from a year ago will look to take another step forward in 2022. With the addition of A.J. Brown this offseason, Hurts will have a great repertoire of offensive skill players to pass to this season. Managers should confidently draft, and play, Hurts as a QB1 this season.

Trey Lance throws for 92 yards and a touchdown on Friday night

49ers QB Trey Lance completed 4-of-5 passes for 92 yards and one touchdown in San Francisco’s preseason opener versus Green Bay. He additionally rushed once for seven yards.

Fantasy Impact: Lance produced a rock-solid performance in the 49ers’ first preseason game, but his highlight of the contest occurred on his final play before being taken out, where he launched a 76-yard touchdown pass to rookie WR Danny Gray. That sealed a perfect QB rating of 158.3. Lance is set to take over QB duties for the 49ers this season, and has plenty of potential to serve as a QB1 for fantasy purposes.
