Running back Alvin Kamara will be unavailable to the New Orleans Saints early in the regular season due to his suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. Many fantasy football owners are currently asking when will Alvin Kamara return and be back on the field for the Saints. Kamara is often one of the top RBs taken off the board in fantasy drafts but is now going much later than normal given his suspension and the mileage he’s racked up during his six seasons in New Orleans.

Kamara will miss the entire month of September as he is suspended for the Saints’ first three games of the season. The Saints’ top offensive weapon is set to make his return on Sunday, October 1 at home against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers barring the unforeseen. Here is a look at the Saints’ schedule around that time.

  • Week 4 Sunday, October 1: Buccaneers vs. Saints
  • Week 5 Sunday, October 8: Saints vs. Patriots
  • Week 6 Sunday, October 15: Saints vs. Texans
  • Week 7 Thursday, October 19: Jaguars vs. Saints

Kamara will be out for games against the Titans, Panthers and Packers in the early portion of the season. That stretch isn’t too daunting, but neither is the remainder of their 2023 schedule. Sharp Football Analysis has the Saints with the easiest strength of schedule in the entire NFL.
