Alvin Kamara should have a field day

The New Orleans Saints may have to unleash Alvin Kamara, although he was limited in practice due to an ankle injury. If 100%, Kamara will have a field day against the Jags, similarly to how McCaffrey tore up Jacksonville last week.

Two backs that play alike, Kamara likes to play in the flat and use his versatility to make defenders miss. That’s exactly what McCaffrey did against Jacksonville, carving them up for 176 rushing yards on just 19 carries. He averaged nearly ten yards per carry.

That wasn’t all though. McCaffrey also caught six passes for 61 yards and a third touchdown. He was an absolute monster, and now it’s time for Kamara’s turn.

Kamara only has two performances this season that have really stuck out as his best. He’s eclipsed at least 100 all-purpose yards in three of the team’s five games, but he eclipsed 150 in two of the five.

By his standards, Kamara’s had a down year, and this game could change all that.

Sadly, the return of Jalen Ramsey may limit superstar receiver Michael Thomas. That said, much of the Saints’ production will come on the shoulders of Kamara, and it’ll be his responsibility to carry the team this week much like Thomas did in Week 5.
