FanDuel Fantasy Points Per Game More DFS

Alvin Kamara piles up 174 yards, 2 touchdowns in Saints' loss

New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara rushed 13 times for 79 yards and 2 touchdowns, and caught 9 passes (9 targets) for 95 yards in a 34-24, Week 2 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday night.

What It Means:

Kamara out-carried Latavius Murray 13-3 and also led the Saints in receptions, yards, and targets as Michael Thomas sat out with a high-ankle sprain. He's experiencing some positive touchdown regression early on with 4 touchdowns through two games after totaling 6 last season. Kamara will continue to be the focal point of the Saints' offense while Thomas is sidelined. They will take on the Green Bay Packers in Week 3.

Kamara scored 33.9 FanDuel points on Monday night. He has added the seventh-most total Net Expected Points (7.8) among the 30 running backs with at least 10 carries through two games. Kamara is the RB2 in numberFire's Week 3 fantasy rankings. Our models expect him to score 19.5 FanDuel points against the Packers and his salary is $8,600.
