Top Rookie RB's

6) Alvin Kamara
2017: 25 CARRIES | 158 RUSHING YARDS | 6.3 AVERAGE | 1 RUSHING TD | 24 REC | 159 REC YARDS | 1 REC TD


Kamara is Reggie Bush 2.0. Head coach Sean Payton is utilizing Kamara's ability out of the backfield to win matchups against linebackers and safeties. When Karama's asked to run the ball, he's shown an increased comfort and effectiveness running between the tackles. He's elusive but comes in at No. 6 on my list because to be considered a feature back, he eventually will have to run the ball consistently. (Strange concept, I know.) If he can't do that, he's going to be tagged as a third-down back.

Re: Top Rookie RB's

Alvin Kamara is a Ricky Watters clone. Comparable in size/weight and running style. Deceptive speed but his lower body strength is what sets him apart in my opinion. I think Kamara will have a big day vs Green Bay. They aren't very stout against the run.

STUD.

Yeah I don't think the Bush comparison makes Kamara justice. He is already a better inside runner than Bush was.

Interesting that Aaron Jones is rated ahead of Kamara.

Exactly. As if Fournette hasn’t been going dumb on teams the past few weeks.

like OJ Howard he went to a team that does not know how use him. both would have been better off with the saints. SP and Drew are a better pairing for both.

I se what SP saw in Kamara now.

With the OL getting healthy and our RT is settling in expect even more production

Needs some work on picking up blitzes but things are looking bright
