New Orleans Saints: 3 players pivotal to a Super Bowl run
Not only are we talking about Alvin Kamara increasing his production but also staying healthy.
An equal name we could put here is Latavius Murray. The committee that the Saints started after Murray broke two 100-yard rushing games back to back in Kamara’s absence has been working out their advantage.

The Saints need to start utilizing their All-Pro running back more than they have been. Two weeks ago against the Falcons, Kamara carried the ball just FOUR times. That is pitiful to a running back that is top five in the NFL.
Understandably though as well, they need to keep Kamara healthy. They’ve also heavily included him in the team’s pass attack.
Kamara is being spelled more often which is decreasing the probability that he will be injured some other time later in the season. He is an essential part of this team if they are to make it to the Super Bowl.
Latavius Murray will also have to make the most of the time he comes into spell Kamara.
He needs to keep the pace of 4.0+ yards per rush up, he can be a valuable asset to the New Orleans Saints. Kamara/Murray will need to rush between 20-25 times a game if the Saints are to reach the Super Bowl.
