Alvin Kamara Could Be Heading Into Final Season With The Saints

Sunday, July 7, 1:07 PM

New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara has been one of the best at his position in team history, but he could be nearing the end of the line with his deal set up to make it easier to release him after the 2024 season. Kamara is looking for more long-term security, which is why he walked out of the team facility before the final mandatory minicamp practice because he's unhappy with his current deal. His contract ranked below only Christian McCaffrey when he signed it in 2020, but four years later, Kamara isn't anywhere close to CMC. The 28-year-old has surpassed 1,000 scrimmage yards in each of the last seven seasons and remains versatile, but the Saints may be considering moving on as he heads into his age-29 season. His abilities as a pass-catcher have kept him afloat in PPR formats, but even in those leagues, fantasy managers should consider him more of an RB2 moving forward.

Khalil Herbert Could Be On Roster Bubble

Wednesday, June 19, 10:37 PM

Chicago Bears running back Khalil Herbert could find himself on the roster bubble as the summer continues, according to Adam Jahns of The Athletic. During a new 53-man roster projection, Jahns and Kevin Fishbain tabbed Herbert to make the team out of training camp, but Jahns also wrote that "it wouldn't be surprising if Herbert is considered on the bubble at Halas Hall." The 26-year-old appeared in one dozen games last year, rushing for 611 yards and two touchdowns on 132 carries. He also added 20 catches, 134 receiving yards, and one receiving touchdown. While he certainly showed flashes of meaningful production in 2023, he lost opportunities to Justin Fields at times. Fields is now gone, but he's been replaced by Caleb Williams, who is still mobile enough to make plays happen with his legs. Most importantly, though, the Bears signed D'Andre Swift, who will enter Week 1 as the starting running back, barring an unforeseen development. Therefore, Herbert, who is entering a contract year, could become expendable as the Bears opt to give more reps to Swift and second-year back Roschon Johnson.
