Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Kamara struggled from a fantasy perspective last season primarily because he didn't get into the end zone nearly as often as we've grown used to. There is some positive regression due in that department and we know he'll get plenty of use in the passing game so he is still a top fantasy back for 2020. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There's just one running back who's had a higher "boom" percentage (25-plus PPR points) than Kamara over the course of their careers, and that's Christian McCaffrey. Kamara has now topped 25 PPR points in 14 of his 45 career games, which is quite ridiculous. His 2019 season was easily his worst to date, though he still finished as the RB12 despite missing two games. The Saints offense continues to groove, and though Drew Brees is still playing great football, his arm strength is declining, which could lead to more targets than every for Kamara, who's averaged 6.7 targets per game over the first three years in a Saints uniform. Provided he doesn't get hurt, Kamara is a near-lock to finish as a top-six running back.Moving to a new team/offense is never an easy thing to do, especially when you don't get to have an offseason with your new team. Still, you don't trade for someone like Hopkins to not target him like a true No. 1 wide receiver. With Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk in the lineup, it may be hard for him to reach the 150-target mark like he consistently did with the Texans, but Hopkins has shown the ability to be efficient with practically every quarterback he's played with. Still, it drops him just outside the elite tier of Thomas, Adams, and Jones.
Justin Dodds
Locked In Football
Despite going from 18 TDs to 6 TDs, Kamara still finished as the RB9 in FP/g in half PPR and the RB8 in FP/g in PPR while playing through injuries. If you give him the same amount of TDs he got in his rookie year (13), he would've gotten 42 (7x6) more fantasy points which would've put his half PPR total at 250 fpts, good for RB7 in half PPR and RB5 in PPR. Kamara with those totals would've averaged 17.9 fpts (250/14) and 21.4 fpts (300/14). Those totals would've been good for RB5 (0.5PPR) and RB2 (PPR). I expect Kamara to have closer to 13 TDs rather than 6 TDs, so use your first round pick on him confidently. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Kamara was pretty disappointing in 2019, considering he was a Top-3 fantasy pick. He finished the year with 1,330 yards from scrimmage, but just 6 touchdowns. I think he is likely to rebound in 2020 and he should have RB1 value.Hopkins slipped in 2019, he averaged only 11.2 yards per reception and he tallied only 7 touchdowns. He could have a new lease on life in Arizona playing with QB Kyler Murray. Hopkins is still an elite WR1.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Alvin Kamara saw his total touchdowns drop from 18 in 2018 to 5 in 2019. This was, in large part, due to nagging injuries that he dealt with all season long. Assuming that Kamara's fully healthy again, he's an amazing bounce-back candidate and could even go off the board in the first three picks of your draft.Hopkins will have a change of scenery in 2020, but that doesn't mean that we should expect a significant drop-off in production. Hopkins may not see the overall target totals that he has in years past, but he's still connected to a dynamic offense and will see plenty of scoring opportunities. Hopkins is a locked-in WR1 this season yet again.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Alvin Kamara had an absolute shocker in 2019. Despite no change in his rushing and receiving opportunities, Kamara dropped five points a game. There are myriad reasons for this massive change but most of them suggest a rebound is on the cards. Kamara battled knee and ankle injuries throughout last season and these really lowered his usually incredible efficiency and effectiveness. His TD numbers dropped by nearly a TD a game as well, which played a significant part in his drop in points. These should mostly regress, but it is worth noting his red zone looks halved last year and that will have an impact if things. Ultimately he's a great rebound candidate but he does come with some very real risk that places him clearly behind the elite three of CMC, Saquon and Zeke, battling with Cook in their own tier.DeAndre Hopkins has long been an elite NFL receiver. Outside a frustrating 2016, he's consistently put up sensational fantasy numbers. Now with the Cardinals, he becomes a great unknown again. Kyler Murray isn't Deshaun Watson but in an offence that is trending upwards, it looks like there will be plenty of targets for Nuk to make hay. The key concern for me is whether Hopkins and Murray can develop enough chemistry during the shortened pre-season to allow the receiver to make an immediate impact. That's the key reason I'd avoid taking him in the first round of most leagues.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Alvin Kamara scored 106 less PPR points in 2019 than 2018. 84 of them were due to him only finding the endzone 6 times instead of 18 in 2018. -1,592 yards in from scrimmage in 2018 and 1,330 in 2019 -Caught the same amount of passes at 81 -Only had 2 TDs heading into Week 16Deandre Hopkins 2019: Age 27, 150 targets, 104 receptions, 1183 yards, 7 TDs, 18 ppr/ppg DLF ADP: 1.07 (WR2). Since 2009, only 26.0% of WRs to average 10+ PPG and then change teams have improved their PPG in the following season. Change the PPG threshold to 12 and that number drops to 20.9%. At 15 it's 0.0%. Hopkins posted 111 - 1521 - 11 TDs with Hoyer, Mallett, Yates and Weeden.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Top 4 fantasy RB in each of 1st 2 NFL seasons before health (ankle) and loss of QB Brees for 5 games helped sink him to RB No. 9 in '19 - give him a mulliganHas averaged more than 100 catches the past 5 seasons and moves into the go-to role in Cards' pass-friendly attack - should be at least business as usual in ARI
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
He's really been the same, consistent player since entering the league. 725-900 yards on the ground. 81 receptions EVERY.SINGLE.YEAR. The ups and downs have been based on health, TDs, and how productive he can be through the passing game.ARZ in year 1 with Kyler and Kliff: 554 ATT. ATL led the league with 684 ATT. Other top teams ranged from 633 to 589 in the top 12. So PERHAPS some upward mobility of 30-70 ATT in 2020. Distribution in 2019: Kirk 108 Fitz 109 RBS 103 This leaves plenty of space for Hopkins to still dominate. Smaller pieces will get their small shares but NUK is fine as far as I'm concerned. And how about that RB share? Might run into a similar problem as OBJ, when he left NY. Nuk had a heavy 29% market share in Houston last year(2nd best in the league). The leading target getter of every week over the course of the season in ARZ last year had a target share of 25%. This was an argument with OBJ going to CLE, and the love he got from Eli vs the unknown of CLE. We made the crossroads point of good players earning more targets but OBJ did not overcome, Nuk might not overcome in ARZ. A 25% target share would still be very good for Nuk, just not the volume he enjoyed over his time in Houston. Could theoretically be a 13% knock in production from opportunity. All just made up numbers but we're looking for reasons to knock players down in this area, not highlight why we know they're good.
