Alvin Kamara cool with sharing Saints backfield
New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara said he's "not selfish" when it comes to sharing touches with Latavius Murray.
"It's not like I'm selfish. I don't need the ball every play. He's fully capable, too," Kamara said of Murray. "So I think we'll get a good balance going, and it will be hard to stop." Murray racked up 307 yards and 4 touchdowns while Kamara was sidelined by a high-ankle sprain for two games heading into the Saints' bye. Head coach Sean Payton said the team will be "smart" with Kamara's return, indicating they may ease him into things in Week 10 against the Atlanta Falcons at home on Sunday. The Saints are favored by 13.5 points and have the highest implied total of the week (32.5 points), per numberFire's NFL Heat Map.
numberFire's models project Kamara for 20.7 FanDuel points on Sunday. He's priced at $8,300 and is the RB3 in our Week 10 fantasy rankings.
