It’s hard to keep track of all the awards that Alvin Kamara is being nominated for. The fiery New Orleans Saints rookie runner is one of three options for FedEx Ground Player of the Week, along with Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell and Cincinnati Bengals rookie Joe Mixon.
Last week Kamara led the NFL in yards from scrimmage (188) and scored two touchdowns, which is twice what Mixon and Bell scored put together. Let’s all watch his gorgeous 74-yard scoring run again, this time explained by the great John DeShazier:
While you’re in a democratic mood, you should know that Alvin Kamara has been nominated again for the prestigious Rookie of the Week award for the fourth time in a row. He’s won it each of the last three weeks and we have a moral duty to make sure he gets the recognition again.

Isn’t it nice to see a third-round pick like Kamara doing so well? It’s so great that Saints fans the world over can rally together behind that #41 jersey.
