Expert 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Kamara was essentially unstoppable last week and there's a very good chance that we see him finish as the RB1 this week. The Packers are currently the 8th easiest matchup for opposing fantasy RBs and Kamara could easily find the end zone multiple times again in this one. Kamara should be viewed as a locked-and-loaded top-5 option this week. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
I don't know what the Saints were thinking last week. Murray had three carries through the first 10 minutes of that game for 14 yards, yet they went away from the run and it cost them the game. Meanwhile, Kamara continues to be hyper-efficient, and is the No. 2 running back in fantasy right alongside his doppelganger, Aaron Jones. The Packers run defense is nothing to be worried about, as they allowed a massive 4.86 yards per carry last year and have continued that trend in 2020 while allowing 4.87 yards per carry through two weeks. The lone issue is that running backs have totaled just 48 touches against them in the first two weeks, as they've averaged just 53.5 plays per game. But when you pair an efficient running back like Kamara against a Packers defense that's allowed 1.08 PPR points per opportunity, you get big results. Kamara has averaged two touchdowns per game to this point, and he might just get there again in Week 3. Start him as a star RB1. Murray went from 15 carries in Week 1 to just three in Week 2, which gives you all sorts of anxiety when trusting him. But we can't let one matchup dictate how we feel about a player. In a game where the Saints are 3.5-point favorites with an over/under of 51.5 points, he should have some scoring opportunities. Consider him a semi-risky RB4 who has touchdown upside. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Packers are just 19th against fantasy running backs, Kamara should be a great WR1 at home in a game that could turn into a shootout.
