Alvin Kamara's Fantasy Scouting Report

2018 FANTASY RECAP AND 2019 FANTASY PROJECTION

Alvin Kamara was the #21 ranked fantasy player this season and the #4 RB. His elite ranking was helped by his higher games played (15). Based on average fantasy points he is the #5 RB. His production dropped throughout the season. In his first 4 games he averaged 25.3 FPs and that declined to 13.3 in his final 5 games. He is young, so his late season drop-off should not be an indicator of an overall downward trend heading into next season. His fantasy production is stable and he is not as volatile as most players based on a below average standard deviation. He averaged 18.2 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 36 fantasy points with a floor of 4 points. Alvin Kamara (2019 Season Projection: 214 Rush, 969 Yards, 9.5 TDs, 95 Rec, 782 Yards, 3.7 TDs) is projected to deliver comparable fantasy value in 2019 where his projection based rank has him as the #3 player at his position.
