Has led RBs in Half-PPR FAN PTS per Touch in each of his first 2 NFL campaigns (min. 200 touches per season)Has back-to-back top 2 finishes in FAN PTS at WR - Has most receptions (528) by a player through the first six seasons in NFL - in layman's terms, he's an aerial acrobat with hands like an octopus
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Kamara has seen more than 100 targets in each of his first two seasons, and is a dynamic pass-catcher for a running back. As he did the previous two seasons with Mark Ingram, Kamara is going to cede plenty of work to Latavius Murray, who signed a fairly hefty contract. But Kamara doesn't need 20-plus touches per game to be an elite fantasy option. The offense runs through him, Drew Brees, and Michael Thomas, and it should be more of the same this year. He's one of the truly elite and safe players in the game today.

With Mark Ingram's departure, many are likely wondering what it means for Kamara, though the acquisition of Latavius Murray tells us a lot. He's likely going to walk into the old Ingram role, though it's important to note that it's no guarantee he's able to fit in this offense. You remember Adrian Peterson with the Saints, right? He was able to go to the Redskins and get it done, so maybe Sean Payton's offense just isn't right for everyone. Because of that, Kamara gets a slight bump in upside, which was already high to begin with, as he has finished as the RB3 and RB4 in his first two seasons with Ingram on the roster.The best hands in football. Hopkins continually makes highlight-worthy grabs on passes that 95 percent of the league couldn't make on their best day. He'll continually see the oppositions best cornerback, but having Will Fuller back will help draw double-coverage away from him. He's now finished as a top-six fantasy receiver in three of the last four seasons, including his first No. 1 finish in 2018
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Kamara has managed to finish as a top five fantasy running back in each season despite only being a workhorse for four games in that stretch. Now that Mark Ingram is gone, there is a chance he runs away with the league lead in fantasy points like Gurley did the last two seasons. With that said, Latavius Murray may jump right into Ingram's role and perhaps even vulture extra touchdowns.As of now, Hopkins is the consensus #1 receiver off the board. You certainly can't argue with his talent nor his recent production but there is reason to be concerned that he is currently on the PUP. Perhaps more concerning is the fact that both Will Fuller and Keke Coutee will both be healthy so his league-high target share may take a hit. He is still elite, but shouldn't exactly be a slam dunk at pick 6.
Kyle Yates
The Fantasy Footballers
Mark Ingram is now out of town and this leaves Kamara the likely leader of the Saints' backfield. While I'm not projecting anything over 215 carries for Kamara, he's going to see as many targets in the receiving game as he can handle. In any form of PPR, Kamara's a top-tier RB1 for your fantasy team in 2019.A pure target monster, Hopkins is one of the safest picks in fantasy football for 2019. If Hopkins and Deshaun Watson can both stay healthy for all 16 games, there's no reason to doubt Hopkins' ability to be a Top 5 WR when it's all said and done.
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
I shouldn't really need to sell you on Kamara, but I'll do so anyways. Kamara has turned in back to back top 4 RB seasons, scoring a jaw dropping 31 TD's over his first two seasons. The crazy part is, he's done so on less than 320 total carries, and still hasn't been over 900 rushing yards. Kamara could finish as the #1 fantasy running back, even if he sees less than 200 carries. There isn't a single other RB you can say that about. He's got the most secure TD floor or any back in football, and he's game script proof thanks to his receiving ability (81 receptions in back to back seasons). I have no problem if you want to draft Kamara first overall. He's that safe and that good.I always try to target running backs in the first round of drafts, but Hopkins is one of the few wide receivers I will make an exception for. He's been over 1,200 yards in 4 of the past 5 seasons, and has AVERAGED 170 targets over the last 4. Since 2014 he's been the WR 14/4/29/1/2 in half PPR scoring. He's an absolute target monster, and I have no problem if you want to take him as the top WR off the board. His TD upside is also massive, as he lead all players with 15 targets inside the 10 yard line last season.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Kamara is one of the most explosive running backs in the NFL and he has 32 total touchdowns in 31 games. He should continue being an elite fantasy football option.Hopkins had 115 receptions for 1,572 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2018 and he should be among the most dangerous receivers in the NFL in 2019 with 3rd year QB Deshaun Watson throwing him the ball.
