Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 2 PPR Rankings

Alvin Kamara Note

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.

Tony Jones Jr. Note

Tony Jones Jr. was heavily involved in his first NFL regular season action and he didn't hurt fantasy lineups where he was started. While he'll take a clear backseat to Kamara every single week, this role that he's filling is still very valuable for fantasy football. He should see 10+ touches every week and he can be started as a low-end FLEX option, if necessary. However, he needs to be rostered in 100% of leagues because of his upside if something were to happen to Kamara.
