Week 2 PPR Rankings
Alvin Kamara Note

Kamara might not see an uptick in carries, but he could see even more work as a receiver out of the backfield with Michael Thomas most likely out. With his nose for the end zone, Kamara's a solid bet to finish in the top-5 at the RB position in week two.

With Michael Thomas gone, these two are going to be relied upon heavily. Not that they weren't in Week 1, as the duo combined for 36 total opportunities. Last year, this duo averaged 29.8 opportunities per game. Their Week 1 usage was more in line with the way the team was trending the last five years. The Raiders allowed a mediocre 3.82 yards per carry last year but did rebuild their entire linebacker unit this offseason. Still, they held Christian McCaffrey and the Panthers to just 3.88 yards per carry in Week 1, so the scheme appears to be working. There was no running back who totaled more than 110 yards on the ground against them last year, but there were two running backs who scored multiple rushing touchdowns (Derrick Henry, Melvin Gordon). The area to watch Kamara is the passing game. He saw eight targets last week, something that would be highly beneficial to him in this matchup, as the Raiders allowed the fourth-most fantasy points through the air to running backs last year, including 6.93 yards per target. With the volume that they'll have, I consider both of these running backs startable. Kamara is an RB1 who could see double-digit targets, while Murray is a decent RB3 play, as he should total at least 12 carries and a few targets against his former team.
