Anyone benching him next week?  

No way.  Even though last week was disappointing, and overall the season isn't what people hoped for, he's still getting around 20 opportunities a game in a great offense and he's still super talented.  Maybe the injury from earlier this year is lingering a bit, but I'm going down with the ship. 

If he blows up on my bench and I lose because of it, that would be a hard pill to swallow for the next 8 months.

If you made it this far with him might as well just ride it out and hope he (finally) manages to post a statline worthy of a top 4 pick.

Anyone who made it to the semifinals with Kamara clearly has a stacked team built around him, so even if he does put up his usual RB2/3 numbers I don’t think it’ll necessarily make or break your week.

Payton is such a doosh.

I loathe how they try to force Taysom Hill into the offense as some sort of BS trick play garbage. Fails 9 times out of 10. 

I’m an AK owner so I know the pain, but I would be willing to guess Hill success rate is much higher than AKs.

Need this guy in the worst way tonight.  New Orleans a heavy home favorite with a nice implied total of 28.25.  Vegas expects about 4 TDs for New Orleans this guy should be on the docket for a few of them.

3 out of the last 4 Indy games have gone over, the only one under being a Thursday night divisional game against the Texans.  Same thing in New Orleans - 3 of the last 4 have hit the over, with the only under game being a Thursday divisional game against Atlanta.

Indy gives up the 7th fewest points to RBs in PPR, but look at the schedule this season.  Derrick Henry had a great game against them.  Outside of Henry?

Tampa Bay, Houston, Jacksonville, Miami, Pittsburgh, Denver and Houston all since the bye week.  Not one backfield I would consider dangerous.  I think their ranking may be a bit scary looking due to the competition they've faced.  Even Henry again and Ekeler had great games early in the season against Indy.  Good RBs have produced.  

If you look at Football Outsider's DVOA, Indy ranks 20th in rushing defense.  Not scary at all.

At home, heavy favorites in a must win game, I think the Saints will be on fire tonight and Kamara should get a piece.

How do you get called an offensive genius? You do dumb little trick plays. Using Taysom Hill gets Payton the credit.


He wouldn’t get called an offensive genius if he just gave Kamara the ball at the 2 to punch it in. Gotta get Taysom in to receive the accolades. Ditto for Nagy.

It’s just weird because they have Brees. On a worst offensive team without strong QB play (Steelers, browns, bears) I would like that kind of thing. But no one should take brees off the field.
