Alvin Kamara put fantasy teams in an early hole

If you had Alvin Kamara on your roster, you started him in this game. And now, you might be wondering if your season is over because of his performance, or lack thereof.

Kamara rushed for just 19 yards (his lowest total of the season) and had 16 yards receiving (his second-lowest total of the season). He did catch five passes, so he made up somewhat for it there, but he scored less than 10 fantasy points and had probably his worst game of the season.

What a bad time for that.

Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris clearly made stopping Kamara the biggest part of his game plan, and it certainly worked. Kamara had 14 total touches in this game resulting in 35 total yards. Ouch.

Meanwhile, Rams running back Kyren Williams had another big game, rushing for 104 yards and a touchdown in this game.

If you had Kamara, you are likely in a big hole early on in your fantasy matchup.
