Expert 
Mark Ringo
Sleepers and Busts
Losing Brees will hurt Kamara's receiving numbers. Brees was the king of check down passes. Kamara's receptions nosedived in three of the four games Brees missed last year due to injury. Make no mistake folks, that's where Kamara needs to shine to justify his first round price tag. My fear is QB Jameis Winston will eventually lose the job. He throws too many interceptions. And if Hill takes over that really hurts Kamara. Taysom will take off and run instead of throwing the check down pass. Also, the Saints need to keep Kamara fresh. If they overwork him he'll wear down. Like many NFL players, he was not in favor of the regular season increasing by one week. Despite Kamara's immense talent, I think there's a very real chance his numbers disappoint fantasy owners in 2021..Well I'll admit it. I thought when Sammy Watkins went to the Chiefs he'd set the league on fire. That never happened. And if it can't happen with Patrick Mahomes at QB in a pass heavy attack, it ain't going to happen in Baltimore with a run focused offense. Avoid.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
It's true that there's some ambiguity with this offense and how it could affect Kamara in 2021. With that being said, this is still Kamara that we're talking about here. He's in the conversation for the most talented RB in the entire NFL and there's very little reason that we should be scared off of drafting him this season. While he might not have the guarantee of targets the way that he did with Drew Brees at QB, there's very few other proven options on this depth chart that could take away work. Plus, with MT out now for the start of the season, Kamara easily should become the target leader in this offense. He should still be a very safe option for 2021 and he's worth drafting with a top-5 pick.The question with Watkins has never been about his talent. It's always revolved around his availability. For all the coach speak that's happening right now out of Baltimore, it's impossible to get excited about Watkins for fantasy purposes this year after he couldn't get it done in Kansas City. If you want to spend your final pick on Watkins to see if things are different this time around, it's a fine strategy, but I would recommend being prepared to quickly cut bait for a new waiver wire pickup if Watkins doesn't hit right away.
Kevin Wheeler
The Draft Zone
I fully believe Winston is the starting QB in New Orleans. The more playing time Hill gets' the lower Kamara's value is perceived to be, but Kamara averaged 16.9 points per game in the 3 games he played with Taysom last year(removing the DEN Kendall Hinton game where NO sat on a win the whole time). Plus, Kamara is also averaging almost 30 fantasy points per game when he plays without Michael Thomas. Small sample size in both cases, but we shouldn't be backing off Kamara because Hill might get the start. @jlarkytweets"Through three days of practice, Watkins has been the most productive receiver on the field." I just have to shake my head at these camp reports sometimes. "'Sammy, to me, is one of the best wide receivers in the NFL, period,' Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman said after practice." - It just dawned on me that in Sammy's most productive years Roman was the OC in Buffalo.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Sans Drew Brees, there's some questions about replacement QBs feeding him in pass game as heavily, but I'd be surprised if that's not a mandate of HC Payton 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
You won't find a bigger Kamara fan than me, and that's going back to his college days. However, with the way Sean Payton rotates his running backs, it's going to be mighty hard for Kamara to live up to his draft cost now that Drew Brees is gone. Brees targeted his running backs at least 28 percent of the time in each of the last four years. Meanwhile, Jameis Winston hasn't targeted running backs more than 18 percent of the time in each of his last four seasons as a starter. The offense is also not nearly as likely to be scoring as many points without Brees. Upon finding out that Michael Thomas will miss time to start the season, it only makes Kamara more valuable, as he could be in line for eight-plus targets per game during that time. 
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
Uncertainty with Taysom Hill & WInston keeps AK out of elite tier. The MT injury could go two ways -- Kamara becomes an absolute target HOG, or the team is atrocious & goes full-on high school offense with Taysom Hill, who murdered Kamara's value last year as a receiver. I am leaning towards the latter unfortunately 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Kamara led running backs with 336.3 fantasy points in 2020, but there are questions about how this offense will look with Drew Brees retired. Kamara is a special talent and he should continue to be the focal point of their offense. 
Tim Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
A lot of question marks around him, but there is no question about Kamara's ability. Whether its Winston or Hill under center, Kamara should continue to be the featured player in a well-designed, proven offense.
