Alvin Kamara Inactive For Week 18

Sunday, January 7, 10:46 AM

New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara (ankle) is inactive for Week 18 versus the Atlanta Falcons, according to Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football. The star playmaker had been listed as questionable but was trending in the wrong direction after missing three consecutive practices this past week. In his absence, Jamaal Williams will suit up as the Saints' starting running back. He figures to occupy an every-down role, putting him in the RB2 tier for fantasy purposes this Sunday.

Roschon Johnson Gets Five Carries To End Season

Sunday, January 7, 10:42 PM

Chicago Bears running back Roschon Johnson wrapped up his rookie season in limited fashion, rushing five times for 20 yards in the team's 17-9 loss to the Packers in Week 18. The 2023 fourth-round pick ended his first season with 332 rushing yards on over four yards per attempt along with 209 receiving yards. Despite having to fight for opportunities with veterans Khalil Herbert and D'Onta Foreman, Johnson showed what he can do in the passing game this year and looks to be a weapon for this team to utilize going forward. While he never gained a consistent enough role to be valuable to fantasy managers, Johnson should have more opportunity next year if the team doesn't make a big move for a running back. Like most rookie running backs, he was never completely unleashed and will look to take a step forward in a bigger role in 2024.
