Regardless of all the doubt and suspicion around Kamara’s third-year dropoff, Kamara is going to get yards through the air and on the ground.
Even when not playing at his highest potential, Kamara managed to finish as the RB9 in PPR fantasy rankings. While his yards per carry and broken tackles diminished, he is not someone to take lightly or ignore if you have the chance to add him to your squad.
Some people believe that off-the-field influences will be distracting Kamara throughout this season due to talks of him holding out on his contract and missed practices.
While there may be some speculation still about how and when he will be paid, Kamara and his agent have openly stated that there is an ongoing negotiation in the works and he has since returned to practice.
There is little that could stand in Kamara’s way this season as he has dedicated himself this offseason to strengthening his body and rebuilding his balance and elusiveness to their previous form.
Drafting Kamara in the top five picks of a draft shouldn’t even be considered a risk by fantasy owners as Kamara may be set to have his best season yet.
Adding Emmanuel Sanders to the receiving core, having Brees for the entire season and Jared Cook being adapted to the Saints playbook all provide threats for defenses to take into consideration this season.
With one of the best quarterbacks and receivers in the game, it is unlikely that defenses will be stacking the box to stuff Kamara very often this year. He may not reach the end zone 19 times, but he has all the pieces in place to be a gold mine for fantasy owners this season.
