With NFL training camps set to start this week, that means fans are also getting ready for their fantasy football drafts to arrive as well. And when getting ready to select your RB1, there's no doubt plenty of sexy options are out there.

But, say you're in a position to take either Christian McCaffrey of the Carolina Panthers or Alvin Kamara of the New Orleans Saints. Who do you go with?

Let's just go on record and say these two backs are among the best in the entire league. McCaffrey is coming off a sensational year, rushing for 1,098 yards and seven touchdowns, while adding 867 receiving yards and six more scores.

As for Kamara, he rushed for 883 yards and a head-turning 14 touchdowns, plus hauling in 81 receptions for 709 yards and four more scores.

What could help increase Kamara's production this year, too, is the absence of Mark Ingram, who is now playing for the Ravens. Though Latavius Murray will steal some of his snaps, it won't be nearly enough to make a monster difference in his production.

With both players entering the third years of their careers, they could very well see improvements on their already impressive numbers. From this chair, Kamara's touchdown prowess and upcoming increased workload makes him the better pick, but don't lose any sleep if you end up going with McCaffrey either.
