The question of whether Alvin Kamara has dominated play in the past few weeks for New Orleans Saintsbut with other absences making headlines this week, the Camara has flown somewhat under the radar.
Let’s take a look at the latest updates regarding Kamara’s situation and the fantasy football implications of his injury.
Will Alvin Camara play on Sunday?
Once again, Camara was tied up all week and carried a questionable mark on the weekend. The fact that he did not receive much media attention in London seemed to be a positive sign. That suggests he’ll likely be on the field this week, but that wasn’t the case.
according to NFL Network’s Stacey DalesHead coach Dennis Allen has confirmed that Kamara will miss the Saints’ game in London. Then Camara Bean was declared inactive in New Orleans.
On Saturday afternoon, ESPN’s Field Yates reported that the Saints have lifted RB Latavius Murray from the training squad for Sunday’s game. Turns out that was a prelude to New Orleans to rule Camara on Week 4
Can the directors of Fantasy trust Mark Ingram with Camara out?
With Kamara out, Mark Ingram should be the number one RB for Saints. He saw the majority of touches when Kamara missed week two but never fully controlled the court. However, we should see both Murray and Dwayne Washington touch each other this week.
The confrontation between the saints is very attractive this week. The Vikings allowed an average of 24.6 fantasy points per game in half-PPR formats to oppose running backs. This makes them the third best league game to appear. In addition, they allowed more than 25 fantasy points to reach the center in two weeks out of the first three weeks.
The problem with Ingram’s fairy value is whether he sees enough touches to be a key player in the 12-team league. With no Kamara on the field, Ingram becomes almost a flexible option with 14 teams in the league by default.
Ingram only managed 10 lunges the last time Camara was out. However, it was reasonably effective with 58 yards on those gigs. During the first three weeks, he had 98 yards on 19 dash attempts and four yards on three goals.
