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.He's not going to win the rushing title or anything and it's very unlikely that he finishes as a top-three fantasy running back, but he's about as safe as they come considering he's been a top-eight running back in each of the last three seasons. There were just four running backs who delivered RB2 or better performances in at least 90 percent of their games: Christian McCaffrey, Saquon Barkley, Ezekiel Elliott, and Gordon.

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.Gordon was 6th among fantasy running backs, despite playing in only 12 games in 2018. He should continue being a bell cow running back on a great offense.
