Alvin Kamara hasn’t been the same since Taysom Hill took over, and it may be up to Brees to save his Offensive Player of the Year campaign as 2020 winds down.

It’s been a whole two games that the Saints have been without Drew Brees, and it’s clear that the offense isn’t the same.

Yes, Taysom Hill has had two solid starts. Many would say they’ve even been highly impressed by the 30-year-old signal-caller. He’s thrown for over 200 yards in one of those games while putting together two solid games as a running quarterback.

Hill has had rushing touchdowns in both games, and it’s clear that his strength is running the ball, something everyone knew coming into this experiment. However, what we couldn’t have gauged is the impact that it would have on Alvin Kamara.

Kamara was having a season in which he could have been in the running for Offensive Player of the Year. That past two games, he’s been irrelevant, and all indicators are that it will continue to stay that way with Hill as the starter.

The Saints are 2-0, and backup Latavius Murray has seen increased success. It’s not all bad, but for Kamara, it’s been far from good. That said, let’s dive into three reasons why Hill’s play makes Kamara irrelevant.
