We prefaced what Alvin Kamara did this week in the opening few paragraphs, but that’s not what his entire season has been like. While it’s impossible to ask him to replicate that dominance, he’s been terrific this season.
Drew Brees has missed time; Michael Thomas has missed time. It’s been Kamara that’s been a consistent force within this offense. After having arguably his worst professional season last year, Kamara has bounced back in a big way after his offseason extension.
Kamara has gone for over 90 rushing and passing yards in 11 games this season.
It’s not just his work on the ground but also the fact that he’s managed to force into way into the end zone. Kamara has a league-high 16 rushing touchdowns after having six total scores last season.
His 21 rushing and receiving touchdowns are both a league-high and a career-high. Sadly, Kamara has also set a career-high with 83 receptions, breaking the exactly 81 he’s had in each of his first three seasons.
Kamara has been the driving force by which New Orleans has, at times, lived.
