Alvin Kamara has been an all-purpose yards machine since he entered the league in 2017. The New Orleans Saints star running back has always been at the core of the New Orleans passing attack and has also fully taken over the lead rushing role in recent years. With all this involvement in the team's offensive game planning, while also spending years playing under a great offensive coach in Sean Payton, has helped Kamara skyrocket up the Saints career scrimmage yards list.

Kamara now stands alone in second place on that list after Monday's game, having passed longtime teammate Mark Ingram.

The only player remaining for Kamara to pass is longtime Saints wide receiver Marques Colston, a favorite target of Drew Brees. Kamara is roughly 1,500 yards behind Colston for the top spot, so while that crown might not belong to Kamara this season, it certainly will at some point in his career.

The Saints take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 10 where they are a 2.5-point road favorite, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
