The Saints led the league in designed running plays per game (30.6) in 2021. Alvin Kamara had a career-high in rushing attempts (240) and career-high in rushing yards per game (69.1) but the lowest yards per attempt (3.7) of his career. The rise in rushing corresponded to a drop to 67 targets, down from a prior career low of 97 in 2019. The loss of Jameis Winston and Michael Thomas may have shaped play-calling tendencies in 2021. The return of Winston and Thomas in 2022, along with the retirement of Sean Payton leaves a lot of uncertainty in the play-calling preferences of the Saints heading into the 2022 season. Either way, Kamara has shown the ability to contribute in both a run-heavy and pass-heavy offense. Kamara's contract was restructured in March, likely keeping him in New Orleans through at least 2023.
