Alvin Kamara retained his every-down role last year despite the team drafting Kendre Miller. Miller spent most of his rookie season on the injury report, so we'll see if Kamara can hold him off in 2024, but at least expect Kamara to be a workhorse (maybe not a bellcow). Last year, Kamara was tenth in opportunity share, eighth in weighed opportunities, and ninth in red zone touches. While Karmara's rushing prowess took another massive hit (40th out of 49 qualifying backs in missed tackles forced per attempt per Fantasy Points Data), his receiving chops remained strong. Last year, out of 60 qualifying backs, he ranked first in target share (18.1%) and sixth in yards per route run. Kamara might not have the same bounce in his step as he did during the Drew Brees era, but his pass game and high-leverage usage in 2024 should keep him firmly planted in the RB1 ranks.

Alvin Kamara (contract) exits practice during minicamp

As confirmed by his agent, New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara's holdout on the final day of the team's minicamp practices was a contract-related move.

Fantasy Impact

Kamara is subject to a fine as a result of his holdout; the veteran RB showed up for the start of practice but left after the walkthrough portion. Kamara has not missed any of the team's mandatory offseason activities, but this move was intentional as he seeks long-term stability. After the 2024 season, Kamara will effectively be a free agent, with his contract treating 2025 as "essentially a dummy year," per Kevin Patra of NFL.com. The Saints and Kamara have been in discussion on an extension but have seen no progress, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. The Saints will have RBs Jamaal Williams and Kendre Miller available if the holdout lasts any longer.
