    Fantasy Football Rankings 2018: ADP, top sleepers from model that nailed Alvin Kamara's breakout

    Alvin Kamara burst onto the fantasy football landscape as a rookie for the New Orleans Saints last season. However, drafters were sleeping on him, and few experts had him high in their fantasy football rankings. In fact, he wasn't among the top 50 running backs off the board in CBS Sports drafts in 2017. When the dust had settled, Kamara quickly dazzled spectators, accumulating over 700 yards and eight touchdowns on the ground, while adding five receiving touchdowns through the air. The team at SportsLine, however, pegged Kamara as one of its sleepers.

After leading in the NFL in both rushing yards and touchdowns in 2014 with Dallas, the Cowboys surprisingly decided not to retain Murray's services. After a subpar year with the

    A New Orleans Saints defensive lineman led a crowd of bystanders who jumped into action to free a man trapped in a car after it plunged from the fourth floor of a CBD parking garage Sunday afternoon (July 15).
