Alvin Kamara's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Alvin Kamara to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 202 projected fantasy points puts him at #6 behind Le`Veon Bell and ahead of David Johnson. He has averaged 17.42 fantasy points in his past 17 games, which is more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 14.4 fantasy points. His rank based on average projected points is the same as his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly more valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #4 ranked running back. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite running back. He is projected to be very good, but not one of the very best at his position. Alvin Kamara is expected to come up slightly short of last season's #4 fantasy position rank.

PROJECTING A DOWN WEEK 3 FOR ALVIN KAMARA WITH FEWER FPS THAN DAVID JOHNSON

Alvin Kamara is projected for 13.6 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #9 ranked running back and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a slightly below average week with fewer fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Aaron Jones but behind David Johnson. His projected rank in Week 4 is the same as it is in Week 3. He is projected for 13.3 fantasy points.

ALVIN KAMARA IS A BETTER VALUE ON FANDUEL AT $8K THAN ON DRAFTKINGS AT $8K

He is a better value on FanDuel than on DraftKings based on position specific points per dollar calculations. He is projected for 16.3 FD points and is worth +$728 more than $8K on FD. On DK he is projected for 20.2 points and is worth +$203 more than $8K. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.
