Alvin Kamara dealing with 'high-ankle issue'

Alvin Kamara is dealing with an ankle issue that will limit him in practice this week.

Fantasy Impact

The ankle issue Kamara is dealing with is a "high ankle issue," which is more serious than a normal ankle injury. He battled through the ankle injury as well as a knee issue during Sunday's win over Jacksonville. Kamara believes he has a shot to play in Sunday's Week 7 matchup against the Bears, but his status is unclear at the moment. Latavius Murray would lead the Saints backfield if Kamara were to to sit out.

Alvin Kamara logs 66 total yards in Week 6 win

Saints RB Alvin Kamara carried the ball 11 times for 31 yards and caught 7-of-8 targets for 35 yards in Sunday's Week 6 win over the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact

Kamara's 66 total yards was his second-worst showing of the season. Without Drew Brees running the offense, Kamara can't seem to play up to par. But since his receiving ability raises his floor -- he's had at least six catches in 4-of-6 games this season -- plus, the fact that he can take the ball to the house on any touch, Kamara is a weekly must-start even in a tough Week 7 encounter at the Bears.

Alvin Kamara will play Week 6

Saints beat writer Melanie Collins is reporting RB Alvin Kamara (ankle) will play Week 6.

Fantasy Impact

Saints HC Sean Payton told Collins that Kamara will be active for Sunday's matchup at the Jaguars. With no indication of limitations, it is safe to fire Kamara up in his usual RB1 slot for Week 6. He will get a Jacksonville defense surrendering the sixth-most fantasy points to enemy backs at a 23.1 FPPG pace.

Alvin Kamara expected to play Week 6

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle) is expected to play in Week 6.

Fantasy Impact

While Kamara was a late addition to the injury report with an ankle injury and was missing at Friday's practice, he managed to participate in Saturday's walk-through and is on track to play in Sunday's matchup at the Jaguars, barring a setback. Even with his injury, Kamara is a strong fantasy play getting a tough but exploitable matchup with a Jaguars defense yielding the sixth-most fantasy points to enemy running backs this season at 23.1 FPPG.

Alvin Kamara (ankle) not seen at Friday's practice

Alvin Kamara (ankle) wasn't seen at the portion of Friday's practice that was open to the media.

Fantasy Impact

Coach Sean Payton declined to comment on Kamara's absence. Kamara popped up on the injury report yesterday with an ankle issue and should be considered questionable for Sunday until we know more. It's also possible he is able to play against the Jaguars on limited snaps. Latavius Murray would be a plug-and-play RB2 in the event that Kamara sits.
