Alvin Kamara, RB
Alvin Kamara is the best player on the Saints. In fact, Kamara’s name should be thrown into the NFL MVP talks. He leads the Saints in every rushing and receiving stat. Kamara also leads all running backs in the NFL in receiving yards.
He has totaled 673 rushing yards in 143 rushes. That averages out to 4.7 yards per rush — that is good for the top 20 in the NFL. He has also added nine rushing touchdowns. He has fumbled once, but he still protects the football.
He has 70 receptions on 86 targets. He has 655 receiving yards — the best on the team and the best running back in the NFL. He also adds another four receiving touchdowns. Kamara has proven game after game that he is the best player on the Saints right now.
Even with a downtick in production with Taysom Hill at quarterback, Kamara is still putting up top running back numbers. The contract that the Saints laid out for Kamara at the beginning of the year is paying off huge dividends even now.
