The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Power Ranking the Top 10 Running Backs for the 2017 Season

Power Ranking the Top 10 Running Backs for the 2017 Season

Power Ranking the Top 10 Running Backs in the NFL for 2017
Publish Date: 07/02/2017
Fact checked by: Simon Briffa

ย 

1).ย Le’Veon Bell, Pittsburgh Steelers- Bell can do it all and he does it all by staying patient. Great vision and burst makes Bell number one on this list.

ย 

2). David Johnson, Arizona Cardinals- Johnson is as complete a running back as you will ever find. Really I think it is more of a tie for the number one spot between Bell and Johnson, but I give the edge to Bell, for now.

ย 

3). Ezekiel Elliott, Dallas Cowboys- Can Elliott repeat last season’s monster effort? I think there is no doubt that he can.

ย 

4). LeSean McCoy, Buffalo Bills- McCoy is an elite talent and if the Bills could put more offensive weapons around him the sky could be the limit for McCoy.

ย 

5). DeMarco Murray, Tennessee Titans- Murray had a monster season last year and with the Titans great offensive line, look for more of the same from Murray in 2017.

ย 

6). Melvin Gordon, Los Angeles Chargers- Gordon bounced back from a so-so rookie season and last year established himself as an NFL running back. I look for him to put himself in the conversation as an elite RB after this season.

ย 

7). Jay Ajayi, Miami Dolphins- Ajayi was a driving force behind the Dolphins surprise playoff run last year, and he will be a big reason why they will once again contend for the playoffs this year.

ย 

8). Leonard Fournette, Jacksonville Jaguars- I know he is a rookie, but to me, he is a special rookie. He will take a ton of pressure off of Bortles this season and the Jags may just surprise some people.

ย 

9). Jordan Howard, Chicago Bears- Howard has come out of nowhere(Indiana Football) to be one of the few bright spots for the Bears and I look for that to be the case again this year.

ย 

10). Marshawn Lynch, Oakland Raiders- Lynch has not played an NFL game in almost two years, but I am ranking him here because I think he can still play. If he can the Raiders could pose a threat to the Patriots.
