Top 10 Running Backs in the NFL

10. Aaron Jones

Jones is still a top running back in the NFL but had a down season due to splitting work as he got just four touchdowns. The yards were still there and the yards per carry.

9. Joe Mixon

A slow start to the season for Mixon got better at the end of the season with a 100-yard game in the AFC Playoffs.

8. Tony Pollard

Pollard has finally taken over as the No. 1 back in Dallas. He showed it last year and was a big part of Dallas’ playoff win.

7. Nick Chubb

This may seem low. Chubb is a great runner, probably top five, but he doesn’t do as much as some of the others ahead of him.

6. Saquon Barkley

Many people thought Barkley was once the best running back in the NFL and last season was arguably his best season yet.

5. Austin Ekeler

Spot five was between Ekeler, Barkley, and Chubb. It could have gone any way but Ekeler is by and far the best receiving back in the league that bumps him up.

4. Josh Jacobs

Jacobs blew up this year and was arguably the best running back for the back half of the season. He just hasn’t done it consistently enough to be top three yet.

3. Jonathan Taylor

It was a huge let down year for Taylor. It could have very well been because he had a terrible surrounding cast so he gets a pass this year after being No. 1 in 2021.

2. Christian McCaffrey

He can do it all and does when he needs to. McCaffrey would have massive numbers but he usually doesn’t run if they don’t need him. He’s dynamic overall.

1. Derrick Henry

Still the most dominant runner in the league. He is the toughest to take down and also is one of the best break away runners that not many talk about.
