Michael Thomas was dominant in 2018, it’s no surprise he’s a popular draft pick heading into the upcoming season. However, there are a number of reasons I’m fading him completely at his current average draft position.
Alvin Kamara is my No. 2 pick in 2019 thanks to his 1,000-1,000 ceiling. The feat is rare, but Kamara is in position to pull it off.
A number of factors appear lined up in Kamara’s favor heading into 2019. The Saints increased their run ratio in each of the two seasons since drafting Kamara. From 2016-18 that figure started at 36.6 before climbing to 44.4 and 46.6 percent, respectively.
