Dynasty/Keeper Outlook

The 2017 Offensive Rookie of the Year will have the backfield to himself to start 2018 due to a 4-game suspension for running mate Mark Ingram. While he started his rookie season primarily as the Saints receiving back, as the year wore on he became harder and harder to take off the field. A dynamic all-around weapon, Kamara is an excellent receiver and gets up to full speed as fast as any back in the league, making him a nightmare matchup for defenses. He's such a valuable weapon that it's probably fair to assume the Saints don't want him handling 25 or more touches a game if they can help it so expect New Orleans to continue managing his workload again this season.

2018 Season Outlook

It's hard to imagine a scenario where Kamara is as efficient with his touches as he was in his rookie season, but even if the touchdowns and yards per carry regress a bit, he should still be in the RB1 mix, with even more value in PPR formats.
