Alvin Kamara

The New Orleans Saints have been graced with Alvin Kamara for the past three seasons.

Since being taken in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, Kamara has made it to the Pro Bowl in every season. He’s clearly displayed over the last few seasons that he’s one of the best and most valuable backs in the NFL.

He’s incredibly elusive in the open field, and he’s shown his shiftiness in almost every game he’s played in. However, while he’s a terrific young back that’ll inevitably request a large contract, the Saints can win without him.

During this past season, Kamra missed two games. In both games, backup running back Latavius Murray, who is one of the best backups in the NFL, went off. Murray, last season, ran for over 100 yards every time he was given over 20 touches.

The team ended up winning both games. Their average margin of victory was over ten points. The only game he missed in 2018 was the season finale, a game the Saints seemingly barely tried and were mightily defeated by the Carolina Panthers.

Kamara has only missed three regular-season games in his three-year career.
