You guys draft and then swap half your teams before the season even starts. Clearly need another hobby to occupy your time

Covers if you had him or played against him: 1st Quarter 2nd Quarter 3rd Quarter 4th Quarter

There was nothing “cute” today that kept Kamara from scoring. 

Def agree. He was close. Some weeks it will be 2-3 TDs, other not.

He is the engine, and same what you will about Payton--but he uses him very well, and it has to be tempting to over-use him too...he is so dang good.

It can be annoying when the Saints get in close on goal to go situations because it seems like Kamara only gets one shot. First and goal, he'll get a carry for 5 yards down to the 2yd line...and then from there its Brees/Payton offensive genius time, Murray or Brees sneak. Frustrating, but c'est la vie.

Brees/Payton offensive genius time? Lol. I’d say they’re pretty darn smart when it comes to offense :)

Wasn’t his last play a pass? They scored it as a run. It looked like a shovel pass to me.... messes me up because as a pass it would give me a 3 point 100 years bonus. Legit going to lose two leagues over it 

It was a pitch to the right. I’m pretty sure it was technically a running play. I can’t believe he never reached 100 yards receiving when he had freaking 86 at the half. Love this guy but it’s frustrating to watch since the Saints use so many different guys in the red zone.

I guess we can complain, but we still have the #1 RB in fantasy... But you are right that his usage could be insane if we didnt almost split carries with Murray. Ah well.

Agreed, but I’m a big believer in that using Murray keeps him fresh and better. AK41 got really ground down last year. Murray will pound the defense a bit and make sure when AK gets the ball he’s on less tired legs. So stoked to see him be back in form this year. His game reminds me tremendously of prime Lev bell, just with less power. He’s a natural pass catcher, his vision and patience are simply unmatched. He never looks like he’s running at full speed and he still picks up huge yardage, makes guys miss, breaks tackles. So fun to watch.

I don’t think Kamara could exist with 25-30 carries including some tough 1 yard dives and 10 targets anyway

Thank you. If they didn't use Murray the way they did AK would be on the IR. They tried to use him like that last year and he broke down. 

They are using him perfectly this season, minus goal to go situations. A little to gimmicky for my liking with Brees, Hill, or Murray runs, or 4 yard TD passes. I loved watching Dalvin's performance yesterday because Zimmer/Kubiak will just keep running him at the goal line knowing odds are eventually he'll get in. AK usually gets one crack at it and then it's Brees QB sneak time lol.
