Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Half PPR Rest of Season Rankings

Alvin Kamara Note

Those preseason concerns over Kamara seem foolish now, as he's totaled four touchdowns and four receptions through the Saints' first two games. He's the key cog in the New Orleans offense right now, especially with Michael Thomas battling a high-ankle sprain, and he should continue to be a top-four back in fantasy so long as he remains healthy.

Latavius Murray Note

When you make a trade for someone like Murray, you're trading for someone his manager views as a bye-week filler or RB4 option. Now that most bye weeks are out of the way, your goal should be to collect as many league-winners on your bench as possible. If Alvin Kamara were to miss any time, Murray would be an every-week RB1, which is worth much more than Murray's bye week filler/RB4 pricetag. His schedule isn't going to allow you to start him right now, but we're not acquiring him to be a starter right now.

Drew Brees Note

Brees has multiple fractured ribs and a collapsed lung and will miss some time, though the exact length of his absence is unclear. In single-quarterback leagues, you can likely move on from the veteran, as the Saints will likely be careful with him since they've shown they can win despite playing a backup.

Wil Lutz Note

Lutz has everything you want in a kicker. He plays on a strong offense, with his home games inside a dome, and is extremely accurate. He's finished the last two seasons as the second-ranked kicker in fantasy and there's no reason to expect him to finish outside the top three. Kickers are almost always volatile but Lutz is the exception, so draft him with confidence.

Taysom Hill Note

Hill took over as the starter for the injured Drew Brees in Week 11 and performed extremely well, rushing for two touchdowns. The ceiling may not be there for Hill given that the pass attempts likely won't approach 30 most games, but he'll offer a high floor with his rushing ability. Brees is expected to be out until roughly Week 15, so Hill should be a borderline startable option for fantasy managers until then.
