Best Running Backs 2020 Hierarchy
This list is based off talents as well as production. I ranked the top 10 Running Backs from last season, but this list focuses on who I believe are the best Running Backs going into the 2020-21 season.
Saquon Barkley – An ankle injury kept him from his dominant rookie self, but he has all the talent in the world.
Christian McCaffrey – The clear #1 running back from last season. Best pass catching running back ever?
Ezekiel Elliott – Hate on the Cowboys all you want. Zeke is still elite.
Derrick Henry – The Titans wouldn’t sniff the playoffs without him. Nobody wants to tackle this beast.
Aaron Jones – The rushing touchdown leader from last season.
Nick Chubb – The Browns were bad, but their rushing attack kept them afloat.
Joe Mixon – Running behind a really bad offensive line, but the talent is there. Will Joe Burrow help open things up?
Josh Jacobs – Robbed of Rookie of the Year? The Raiders would not have won as many games without him.
Alvin Kamara – After an injury plagued season, I still believe he is one of the best dual purpose RBs in the NFL.
Dalvin Cook – The Vikings fall flat without him. This offense will depend on him even more without Stefon Diggs.
Chris Carson – Missed two games and still rushed for over 1200 yards. Needs to solve fumbling issue.
Mark Ingram – Big Truss Woo Woo. Prospers in the high octane Ravens offense.
Leonard Fournette – Held back by an awful offense, but I’m sold on the talent.
Melvin Gordon – New leader of this Broncos offense. Still lots left in the tank.
Todd Gurley – Another year to get more healthy. No longer elite, but should be used plenty in Atlanta.
Le’Veon Bell – Struggled in his first year with Jets. I still believe in him as a top dual purpose RB.
