Saints’ Alvin Kamara emerging as prime fantasy football sleeper

The summer months are officially underway, which means fantasy football drafts are just around the corner.

Fantasy football can be as fickle as it is exciting because of positional uncertainty. Drafting running backs has become a difficult endeavor with so many teams implementing a multi-back backfield.

Taylor’s Cheap Jerseys China career average is 7.4, so don’t expect him to be coached out of his comfort zone.
