New Orleans Saints DFS Spin
Alvin Kamara (undisclosed) wasn't listed on Thursday's injury report. Kamara's last snap in this past Sunday's loss at San Francisco was a lost fumble at the goal line, which resulted in the running back visiting the sideline tent and continuing to don pads in the waning minutes of the contest. No injury was reported at the time or in its aftermath, and now he's avoided the Saints' initial practice report of Week 13. Kamara thus is in line to remain the team's primary backfield option Monday in Tampa Bay, especially with Mark Ingram (foot, limited Thursday) dealing with a new health concern.
Tampa Bay Bucs DFS Spin
Mike Evans secured two of nine targets for 31 yards in the Buccaneers' 23-17 overtime loss to the Browns on Sunday. It was a nightmare of an afternoon for Evans, who repeatedly failed to connect with Tom Brady despite tying with running back Rachaad White for the second-most targets on the day. Evans saw position mate Chris Godwin (12-110-1) enjoy outstanding chemistry with Brady, and he's now recorded 54 receiving yards or fewer in three consecutive games. Evans next lines up for a matchup with a team that's given him plenty of trouble in the past, the Saints, in a Week 13 Monday night home divisional clash.
