Alvin Kamara NFL’s best player
Alvin Kamara might be the best player in the NFL. If you watched the first Saints game this season you saw how much of an impact Kamara makes with every touch of the football. It doesn’t matter if he is catching the ball out of the backfield or splitting out wide playing like a wide receiver or carrying the football. When he first came into the league he was more of scat back catching passes out of the backfield. Recently he has improved more as a runner and he might just be the most elite player in the game. Wherever he is lined up on the field he is a threat to take it the distance. Kamara is the first running back for the Saints who seems like even more of a dangerous weapon than Drew Brees. The game plan playing the saints was always to stop Brees but with the way Kamara is playing I would do more to try and slow down Kamara then anything else. He is a player that needs a coverage asset and a spy. It will be hard for defenses to key on Kamara with all the weapons the Saints employ but slowing him down will get rid of a key safety valve and make Drew Brees have to sit longer in the pocket to have to survey the field. When the game looked over and the Saints needed a completion to get into field goal range Drew Brees quickly looked to Kamara and completed the pass that set up the go ahead score. On the play you could tell there was nothing their was nothing the defense could do to try and stop him. If Kamara keeps this up he will validate his position as the most dangerous weapon in the NFL.
