New Offensive Coordinator Could Benefit Alvin Kamara

Wednesday, February 21, 2:02 PM

NewOrleans.Football's Nick Underhill believes that New Orleans Saints offensive coordinator Klint Kubiak is going to bring a running game that will give running back Alvin Kamara "more space" to operate in 2024. Kubiak, who comes to New Orleans from the San Francisco 49ers, is expected to add plenty of pre-snap motion, something the Saints rarely did in 2023. The 28-year-old Kamara finished second among all RBs last year with 75 catches on 86 targets for 466 yards and a touchdown through the air. He added 180 rushing attempts for 694 yards and five touchdowns on the ground, so perhaps the addition of Kubiak will make Kamara more productive on the ground next season. Still, fantasy managers should have hesitations about Kamara's overall effectiveness as a rusher as he enters his age-29 campaign in 2024.

Gus Edwards Runs For 40 Yards In Playoff Win

Saturday, January 20, 8:44 PM

Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards rushed 10 times for 40 yards in the team's 34-10 victory over the Houston Texans in the Divisional Round. Although the Ravens established an early lead in the second half and maintained control, it was teammate Justice Hill who led the backfield in touches, not Edwards. Both running backs averaged at least four yards per carry, showcasing an unstoppable rushing attack in the second half while the Texans struggled to halt them. The Ravens are set to host the AFC Championship in the next game against either the Chiefs or Bills, both of whom rank below league average in DVOA against the run. Both potential opponents limited points to running backs this year, and the evaluation of the Ravens' backfield remains challenging due to the committee approach along with a quarterback who serves as the primary threat in the rushing attack.
