Fantasy Analysis
Week 11 Projections
Making his return after sitting out two games due to a tender ankle, Kamara looked close to 100 percent healthy during his team's surprising loss to the Atlanta Falcons last week. The expected timeshare between him and Latavius Murray, however, didn't happen. Kamara out-snapped him 52 to 16 and out-touched him 12 to seven. The Saints fell behind, and Kamara is the preferred passing-down option. Since the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have allowed the fewest rushing yards, game script should favor the must-start Kamara over Murray again this week. Kamara should be very busy as a receiver.
Rushing: 52 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 5 Receptions, 42 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Regression was inevitable after his breakout 2017 rookie season, but "would he remain a star performer?" was a question we all had to consider in 2018. He passed every test thrown at him. He was targeted more than 100 times in the passing game again and net nearly identical production. His workload as a runner increased by 60% and he still touted a lofty 4.6 yards per carry. We wouldn't recommend expecting any more increase in workload, but the Saints offseason indicates there won't be any change in his role. He's going to score a lot of touchdowns as one of two headliner's in one of the league's most prolific offenses.

Rushing: 407 Yards, 5 TD.
Receiving: 40 Receptions, 326 Yards, 3 TD.
