The Athletic's Jeff Duncan reports that Alvin Kamara will carry the load in the Saints' backfield. (The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact:

In 2018, weeks 1-4 when Mark Ingram was suspended Kamara was RB1 on a point-per-game basis, averaging 34 points in PPR leagues. The rest of the season when Ingram returned Kamara's points-per-game nosedived to 19.8, while Ingram averaged 11.9 fantasy points. Ingram's depature vacates 138 rushing attempts and 27 targets. If Kamara, who was RB4 last season, takes over most of the opportunity he'll rival Saquon Barkley for RB1 this season.
