The Facts: Kamara stands first in line to see increased action with Mark Ingram serving a four-game suspension to start the regular season. Don't expect the Saints, however, to force feed touches to the all-purpose Kamara, who totaled 728 yards rushing and eight touchdowns on 120 carries and 826 yards receiving and five touchdowns on 81 catches in 2017. "The mistake would be that Alvin gets 15 more carries and that's not the direction we would expect to go," HC Sean Payton said. "I don't think that is wise."
Diehards Line:Payton said the team would be open to considering a veteran like Adrian Peterson if it came down to that. But the Saints currently don't plans to go that route and are comfortable in maintaining the status quo for now. In addition to Kamara, the Saints have Jonathan Williams, Daniel Lasco, Trey Edmunds and rookie Boston Scott, the team's sixth-round pick of the 2018 NFL Draft. Appearing with the FootballDiehards on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio on Saturday night, ESPN.com's Mike Triplett pegged Scott and Williams as players to watch as training camp opens.
