Saints head coach Sean Payton and running backs coach Joel Thomas both said they don't want to drastically increase Kamara's workload while Mark Ingram is suspended for the first four games of the season, NFL.com's Herbie Teope reports. "I think it would be a disservice to him," Thomas said. "Let's be honest here -- he's excelled with the ratio he's had, whether it's the carries or the combination with the catches, as well. It's almost a number that you want to get to that he's still getting the touches that he's had in the past. But maybe they occur through two, three or four more carries, and two or three less receptions."

2018

2017

The Saints have a history of utilizing speedy pass-catching backs in their offense, so when Kamara fell into the third round of this year's draft, the New Orleans front office pounced, trading a second-round pick in 2018 to grab him. At 5-10, 215, Kamara has decent size, but it's his top-end speed and explosiveness that set him apart, making him a threat to take the ball to the end zone any time he gets it in open space. He's also a very good receiver and route runner. His vision is suspect, and he never got a chance to prove he can handle a full workload in college, but with Mark Ingram and Adrian Peterson also in the Saints' backfield, he won't be asked to do anything outside of his comfort zone. Kamara's touches as a rookie may be limited, but his per-play efficiency could be off the charts.
