If you own Kamara and you survived your first round playoff matchup, congratulations, as his early departure from a concussion meant he essentially provided no fantasy value. Kamara has said he's playing this week against the Jets and, although he does have the benefit of having 10 days in between games, he's obviously not yet through the concussion protocol. Assuming he does play, it's actually a bad matchup for the young back, as the Jets allow the sixth-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs. But you're obviously starting Kamara if he plays against any opponent, and you should get final word on his playing status well before gametime. Have a backup ready, but for now, plan on starting Kamara as a top option as always.

Alvin Kamara disappoints with 27 total yards; enters concussion protocol

Alvin Kamara rushed one time for two yards, and caught three-of-three targets for 25 yards, in the New Orleans Saints' Week 14 loss against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Kamara owners are simply not thrilled with this news. A screen play got sniffed out by the Falcon defense and the defender blasted Kamara while accidentally making helmet-to-helmet contact. Good news is that he has extra days to clear the concussion protocol. Bad news is that the sub-five fantasy point game puts owners in a jam to advance in the playoffs. Owners can only hope he clears the protocol in time for Week 15 against the New York Jets.
