The New Orleans Saints overcame a five-game absence from Drew Brees en route to a 13-3 record. A key component in the team’s success was Alvin Kamara and his versatility out of the backfield.

The Saints’ success didn’t carry over into the playoffs as they lost 26-20 against the Minnesota Vikings in the Wild Card Round. There were a couple of glaring weaknesses the team needed to address starting with the No. 2 receiver spot and swapping out Larry Warford.

To address the two major holes on offense, the Saints drafted Cesar Ruiz in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft to play the center spot. This decision will enable New Orleans to play Erik McCoy at guard. These changes should help the offense as a whole, along with Kamara.

The signing of Emmanuel Sanders in free agency will make it difficult for opposing teams to key in on Michael Thomas more. Having a more balanced approach should help the Saints spread the ball around and provide simpler conditions for Kamara to operate.

During the 2019 season, Kamara split the backfield responsibilities with Latavius Murray. In 14 performances, Kamara recorded 252 touches, 1,330 total yards from scrimmage, and six combined touchdowns.

With that being said, let’s take a look at what to expect from New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara in 2020.
