Alvin Kamara Sits Out of Saints Practice in Hopes of a New Contract
4 weeks ago

Saints running back Alvin Kamara was absent from the final minicamp practice with his agent citing dissatisfaction with Kamara’s current contract.

Ian Rapoport has reported that Alvin Kamara’s absence from the Thursday Saints minicamp is contract related. This is worth monitoring as the Saints have a decent history of working out contracts to keep their roster together and an intentional move like this from Kamara’s camp could set up for a parting of ways.


Whether the Saints entertain Kamara’s demands remains to be seen. It is worth noting that the 49er’s Christian McCaffrey did just a contract extension keeping him as the top paid running back in the league. From a peer to peer standpoint, Alvin Kamara may see this as a signal and opportunity to push the running back market both for himself and others. Whether that happens or not remains to be seen. 


Alvin Kamara was the RB-11 in fantasy football last year and is currently going as the RB-17 in round 6 on UnderDog. The immediate contingent buzz will circle around teammate Kendre Miller who is being drafted as RB-44 in round 12. Overall, it is worth investing in both Alvin Kamara and Kendre Miller in both Dynasty and Best Ball formats with the possibility of having both players score points in your lineups as top-12 running backs playing for different teams in 2024.
