New Orleans Saints rookie running back Alvin Kamara is up for two weekly NFL awards from his Week 9 performance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After his 152-yard day from a combination of a big rushing and receiving day on just 16 touches and 25 snaps, Kamara is up for FedEx Ground Player of the Week and Pepsi Rookie of the Week.

You can vote for him as the Ground Player of the Week here. He’s up against Adrian Peterson and Ezekiel Elliot. Without bias, he absolutely had the better day.

You can vote from him as the Pepsi Rookie of the Week here. It shouldn’t even be close. Out of eight weeks, the Saints have had three weekly winners. Marshon Lattimore most recently won the award in Week 8, as well as getting it in Week 6. Alvin Kamara also won in Week 4 for his game against the Dolphins.
