2021 PPR Draft Rankings

Alvin Kamara Note

You won't find a bigger Kamara fan than me, and that's going back to his college days. However, with the way Sean Payton rotates his running backs, it's going to be mighty hard for Kamara to live up to his draft cost now that Drew Brees is gone. Brees targeted his running backs at least 28 percent of the time in each of the last four years. Meanwhile, Jameis Winston hasn't targeted running backs more than 18 percent of the time in each of his last four seasons as a starter. The offense is also not nearly as likely to be scoring as many points without Brees. Upon finding out that Michael Thomas will miss time to start the season, it only makes Kamara more valuable, as he could be in line for eight-plus targets per game during that time.

Latavius Murray Note

Yes, Drew Brees is gone, which have some concerned about the handcuff value of Murray. This is where I remind you about something. Remember when Alvin Kamara missed time in 2019 and Murray was the No. 2 running back for that short stretch? Well, one of those games he played was with Teddy Bridgewater under center, where Murray rushed for 119 yards and two touchdowns against the tough Bears defense. He's getting up there in age, but should still present borderline RB1 potential behind a great offensive line should Kamara miss any time.
