There are two players in the Top 7 list that were on their second year playing in the pro’s in 2014, Eddie Lacy and Le’Veon Bell, so experience does not always trump skill. It is good to know who is consistently good on the field, and by looking at beasts like Marshawn Lynch we can already tell how well they are going to play in the upcoming season. One thing that most miss out on is looking at the Average yards per carry, as that is highly influential. Not all great running backs are those that can break 1,000 rushing yards, but rather how well they perform during each rush, which is why you can also look at the top inside the red zone RB to help compliment your overall roster.

It is great to see and compare what great running backs do, and see which players are going to have their breakout season and completely tear through the opposing team’s defense. Remember to use the best players depending on the weekly games on you fantasy NFL team.
