Expert 
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
There are few superlatives and nary an ounce of praise left to be heaped upon King Henry. Through six weeks, he leads the NFL in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns by a country mile. In fact, his yards AFTER contact are more than the next highest rusher's yards on the ground, and his 10 rushing scores are double that of the guy in second place.Seattle has been smoked by opposing backs this season, and fresh off a bye, Kamara should be an easy top-2 play at his position this week.
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
The guess here is that younger fantasy managers have a greater appreciation of Henry than older fantasy managers. The grizzled fantasy veterans who were playing in the early 2000s experienced something similar with Marshall Faulk, Priest Holmes, and LaDainian Tomlinson, giants of the era who routinely produced mammoth seasons and carried fantasy teams to championships almost singlehandedly. But there have been few saviors at the RB position in the generation since, so perhaps the young'uns are more in awe of Henry's greatness than the graybeards are. At the moment, the point differential between Henry and the RB2 in half-point PPR fantasy scoring is greater than the pint differential between the RB2 (Austin Ekeler) and the RB16 (Antonio Gibson). This week, Henry should feast on a Chiefs defense that ranks 31st in DVOA against the run and is giving up 5.2 yards per carry. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 It's certainly been an interesting year for Kamara. He's had games where he's been used similarly to Derrick Henry with a massive workload on the ground and then other games we've seen the usage from him that we've become familiar with in previous seasons. Either way, we know that he's going to be given plenty of work each and every week and that's all we should care about as fantasy managers. With his skill set and talent, he has the ability to translate that volume into top-5 fantasy production every single week. In a matchup against the Seahawks defense that's allowing the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing RBs this year, AK's a top-tier option.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Henry has been the top fantasy back each of the last two weeks and three times out ofThe Chiefs are just 23rd against fantasy backs, Henry should be poised for another elite RB1 performance at home this week.Kamara was a Top-10 RB in 3 of his first 5 games and he should be a RB1 at a Seahawks D that is 30th against fantasy backs.
