The New Orleans Saints heat to Tampa Bay to take on the NFC South leading Buccaneers on Sunday. The Saints chances of making the playoffs are slim, but a win keeps them in the hunt. They do have some concern with their star running back Alvin Kamara though, as he is dealing with an illness. Kamara didn’t practice on Friday with the illness after practicing Wednesday and Thursday. Often players will play through illness, and it sounds like Kamara has a good chance of doing so.

Friday update: Kamara is officially questionable after missing practice on Friday with an illness.
Fantasy football analysis
If Kamara were to miss, Jamaal Williams and Taysom Hill would see an uptick in work, but neither has much fantasy upside this week. We would likely see the Saints attack the Buccaneers through the air more, as that is their defensive weakness.
