Fantasy Football Player Notes
2021 Rest of Season Rankings
This recommendation needs to be layered with nuance. By no means is Kamara a screaming "sell" candidate. Do not trade him just to trade him. However, if you can flip him for another RB1 plus something more, then it might make sense to do. His percentage of the RB carries on the Saints has fallen from 83.5% pre-Ingram to 65.1% post-Ingram. Additionally, his target share has fallen from 22.3% to 14%. Kamara is still a great player, of course, but the Ingram move has reduced his margin for error.
Mark Ingram II
Ingram received 87.5% of the Saints' RB share in Week 10 against the Titans. He also earned a 21.2% target share, operating as a legitimate bell-cow with Alvin Kamara (knee) sidelined. It's unclear if Kamara will return in Week 11, but Ingram should now be viewed as one of the top handcuff options in fantasy football. Furthermore, there will likely be weeks where he has standalone FLEX value in deeper formats.
