Are we finally seeing the true workhorse RB, Alvin Kamara? While Kamara has been amazing for fantasy football in years past, he's been doing it on the back of tremendous receiving volume versus attempts on the ground. Kamara saw 20 carries against the Packers in week one, which is the second highest mark in his NFL career. While he only saw four targets, which isn't what fantasy managers are used to seeing, it's not concerning moving forward. The Saints simply didn't need Kamara to be involved through the receiving game and Winston only threw the ball 20 total times. Heading into week two, Kamara should be viewed as a steady and reliable high-end RB1 against the Panthers defense.
