Alvin Kamara looking to make the game go through the Saints' running backs against Carolina in Week 7
New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara talked to the media this week about the opportunity to take advantage of the Carolina Panthers run defense in Week 7.
Kamara said "that's my message in the running back room, to try to kind of make the game go through us. So this week, obviously with where they're ranked at, we know we got opportunity, we still gotta take advantage of the opportunity. We still gotta make the right reads and Sean knows he has to call the right plays at the right time.". The opportunity is an exceptional one, facing a Panthers defense ranked 29th against running backs in numberFire's advanced stats. Our models expect Kamara to see 14.6 carries and 7.4 receptions in Week 7 and he is the RB2 in our weekly rankings.
The Saints are 7.0-point favorites over the Panthers in Week 7. Their implied team total of 29.0 points is the third-highest team total on Sunday's main slate, according to numberFire's DFS Heat Map. Kamara's projection includes 70.0 rushing yards, 56.1 receiving yards, 1.06 touchdowns, and 22.6 FanDuel points. His salary is $9,300.
