Fantasy Football Busts to Avoid: Alvin Kamara & Rachaad White (2023)

Fantasy Football Busts to Avoid: Alvin Kamara & Rachaad White (2023)

Several factors go into building a winning best-ball team. One of those factors is identifying which players will let your team down and bust. Another is knowing which players have league-winning upside, especially in the later rounds. To help you build an elite best ball roster, I will identify the most likely bust candidate and potential league winner for every NFL team.

Today I break down the NFC South teams: the Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The ADP used for this article comes from Underdog Fantasy.

Fantasy Football Busts: NFC South

Alvin Kamara (RB – NO): ADP 91.7 | RB29

Alvin Kamara has been suspended three games by the NFL. Unfortunately, that’s not the only reason I won’t draft Kamara this season. The veteran running back averaged 12.2 half-point PPR fantasy points per game and had only two rushing touchdowns last year, both career lows. Yet, the former Tennessee star was a touchdown machine, scoring 13 or more in three of his first four years in the NFL. Unfortunately, Kamara has 13 total touchdowns over the past two years. Meanwhile, New Orleans added Jamaal Williams and Kendre Miller this offseason. Fantasy players should draft James Cook and Antonio Gibson with a later ADP over the veteran running back.

Rachaad White (RB – TB): ADP 81.6 | RB25

Fantasy players were excited after the Buccaneers released Leonard Fournette earlier this offseason. With the veteran and his 262 touches from last season off the roster, White became the No. 1 running back on the team. However, fantasy players should avoid drafting the second-year running back. Last season he averaged only 3.7 yards per rushing attempt and 2.3 yards after contact per attempt. The former Arizona State star also lacked explosiveness. Only 6.2% of his rushing attempts went for 10 or more yards, and only 3.1% were for 15 or more yards as a rookie. James Conner and Isiah Pacheco have a later ADP than White. I would draft both over the former Arizona State star.
