The Ravens have allowed the fewest fantasy points per game (8.3) to running backs, and Kamara now has to share the backfield with Mark Ingram. Following a torrid start, the second-year pro settled for nine touches and 39 yards in his teammate's return. He's still a must-start stud, but there's some downside in a tough road matchup. It ultimately makes Kamara a low-end RB1 rather than a candidate for the top slot.

Alvin Kamara quiet in Week 5 win

Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed for 24 yards on six carries and caught 3-of-4 targets for 15 yards in Monday night's Week 5 win over Washington.

Fantasy Impact

Kamara was quiet in Mark Ingram's return, which may have been expected despite his sensational start to the year. Moving forward, while I expect a similar split for the Saints rushers as they had in 2017, it wouldn't surprise me if Ingram saw extended work immediately, in an attempt to salvage Kamara for a deep playoff run. Still, Kamara is a top-flight fantasy running back and should be in your lineups expecting upside production. Saints have their bye in Week 6.
