NOLA.COM – Saints’ Alvin Kamara ranks atop fantasy football
list – (NOLA.COM)

Alvin Kamara joined the New Orleans Saints as a third-round drafted running back, the fifth player at his position taken in the 2017 NFL Draft. One year later, he’s considered by one fantasy expert to be the top player in the league — at least based on potential fantasy points for 2018. writer Adam Rank put Kamara atop his list of 200 fantasy players, which had running backs Todd Gurley, David Johnson and Saquon Barkley immediately behind him.

That’s a significant jump in stature for somebody with one season of experience, but a deserved jump for somebody who led all running backs with 826 receiving yards and tallied 14 total touchdowns (eight rushing, five receiving, one kickoff return).

His versatility makes him a multidimensional threat who can position himself in various places along the offensive formation at the start of any play.

Kamara ranks first among Saints players on four of the five fantasy panelists. Michael Thomas is the only Saints player ranked ahead of Kamara in any of the five lists. Thomas last season set a Saints season record for catches (104). 

Regardless of positioning, those are two reliable pass-catching options for quarterback Drew Brees as he enters his 13th season in New Orleans.
