The top ten running backs in the NFL heading into the 2015 season

The Top Ten

1 Adrian Peterson Adrian Peterson Adrian Lewis Peterson is an American football running back who originally played for the Minnesota Vikings and currently plays for the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League.

Most rushing yards in one GAME totes should be first

He'll make his way to the Hall of Fame

Why would he not. Be the number 1

Marshawn lynch is better

2 Le'Veon Bell Le'Veon Bell Le'Veon Andrew Bell is an American football running back for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League.

Well when he returned he did alright until an injury came and he was done for the year. - htoutlaws2012

When he is not suspended or injured he is fantasy football gold.

Great back and deserves more respect

3 Marshawn Lynch Marshawn Lynch Marshawn Terrell Lynch is a former American football running back who played in the National Football League for the Buffalo Bills and Seattle Seahawks.

I don't think Leon bell should be 2 I think marshal lynch should be

Beast mode disappoints this year with an abdominal injury. - htoutlaws2012

Seriously #3 that's not right he should be #1

He is the best nicest rb ever

4 Eddie Lacy Eddie Lacy Eddie Darwin Lacy, Jr. is an American football running back for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League.

When did Lacy gain weight oh it's no wonder he hasn't been the same last year so unexpected. - htoutlaws2012

Probably the toughest running back in the league.

Run fat boy run go pack go😎

Fat son of a bitch.

5 Todd Gurley Todd Gurley Todd Gurley II is an American football running back for the Los Angeles Rams of the National Football League.

Half of the people higher than him were injured half of the season

After Adrian Peterson retires he will be the best back in the league. He is also on my fantasy football team.

Gurley is at least top 3

Looking like a strong candidate for Rookie of the year next to Amari Cooper. - htoutlaws2012

6 Devonta Freeman Devonta Freeman Devonta Freeman is an American football running back for the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League.

I pick Devonta Freeman because he is very speedy and can truck players very good.

For the first 8 games he looks like MVP and then he gets injured.

In the 1st half he looked like a Mid-season MVP then an unfortunate injury may have ruined that chance of that. - htoutlaws2012

7 Chris Ivory Chris Ivory Christopher Lee Ivory is an American football running back for the Jacksonville Jaguars of the National Football League.

Breakout season he had last year with the jets. He with Jaguars know. Very hard hitter.

8 Arian Foster Arian Foster Arian Isa Foster is an American football running back who is a free agent. He played college football at Tennessee, and was signed by the Houston Texans as an undrafted free agent in 2009. Foster is known for his vision in finding rushing lanes and his signature Namaste bow, which he frequently performs ...read more.

Very disappointing year for what could be the last time we see Foster due to all the injury problems he has suffered with. - htoutlaws2012

If he wasn't getting injured all the time he would have hall of fame potential. He beat out Jay Ajayi for starting RB for the Dolphins.

9 Chris Johnson Chris Johnson Christopher Duan Johnson is an American football running back for the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League.

If anyone should get comeback of the year nobody would of said Chris Johnson but I know his out for the season but give the man an award for effort. - htoutlaws2012

Good mentor for David Johnson. He isn't doing to bad himself.

10 Doug Martin Doug Martin Douglas Matthew Baranco Martin is an American football running back for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League.

Loved him as a rookie. I'm so glad he is back to being the old Doug Martin after injuries.

Having a great season after having a really bad second year. - htoutlaws2012

The Contenders

11 Jamaal Charles Jamaal Charles Jamaal RaShaad Jones Charles is an American football running back for the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League.

He is great and will only come back

He was doing okay until of course he got hurt and was done for the year luckily the chiefs have a great RB tandem in West & Ware and have a chance to go to the playoffs. - htoutlaws2012

12 Matt Forte Matt Forte Matthew Garrett Forte is an American football running back for the New York Jets in the National Football League.

It seems like the Bears future at RB might turn to Langford Forte is showing his getting old and might go to a rival team next year Lions? Packers? - htoutlaws2012

13 LeSean McCoy LeSean McCoy LeSean Kamel McCoy also known as "Shady" is an American football running back for the Buffalo Bills of the National Football League.

Having kinda the same year as last year but kinda better. - htoutlaws2012

He is so fast gust fast

14 Justin Forsett Justin Forsett Justin Forsett is an American football running back for the Baltimore Ravens of the National Football League.

Man the Ravens took a bad loss with both Forsett & Flacco and will most likely be finished. Anyway Forsett had his ups & downs in the end you knew what happened. - htoutlaws2012

15 Mark Ingram Mark Ingram Mark Ingram, Jr. is an American football running back for the New Orleans Saints of the National Football League.

Another good year for Ingram back-to-back. - htoutlaws2012

16 Frank Gore Frank Gore Franklin Delano Gore is an American football running back for the Indianapolis Colts of the National Football League.

Not having that good of a season as the colts were hoping. - htoutlaws2012

Frank Gore is a very great back...over 12,000 rushingyards in his career he is very under rated..Should be in front of Lynch

17 Dion Lewis

New England Patriots running back who established a legitimate running game in New England this season before injuries.

Well lewis has potential but brady doesn't run the ball much

18 Andre Ellington Andre Ellington Andre DeAngelo Ellington is an American football running back for the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League.

First few games he was doing ok until they announced Johnson would be the staring RB but now he might get that opportunity back. - htoutlaws2012

19 DeAngelo Williams

Le'Veon is #2? This guy OWNED 2015-16... I have no doubt that Le'Veon is definitely top 10 in the game but not for the season. Williams is at least top 5 for 15-16 considering all the injuries.

20 Alfred Morris Alfred Morris Alfred Bruce Morris is an American football running back for the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League.

Having a surprisingly disappointing year because they drafted another RB and that he could be on the way out for that reason. - htoutlaws2012

22 Jeremy Hill Jeremy Hill Jeremy Hill is an American football running back for the Cincinnati Bengals of the National Football League.

23 Darren Sproles Darren Sproles Darren Lee Sproles is an American football running back for the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League.
24 Lavar Ball
25 Demarco Murray Demarco Murray DeMarco Murray is an American football running back for the Tennessee Titans of the National Football League.

I had a feeling the O-line of Philly would not be good for Murray. Never should of left Dallas! - htoutlaws2012

26 Darren McFadden

Dallas wasn't sure who would be their #1 but finally after the 1st half McFadden and emerged unfortunately his team sucks. - htoutlaws2012

27 Lamar Miller Lamar Miller Lamar Miller is an American football running back for the Houston Texans of the National Football League.
28 Thomas Rawls

Worked hard and gave the Seahawks a great running game

An undrafted free agent rookie had to stand up when Marshawn Lynch was out for the 2015-2016 season with an abdominal injury.

The guy is a beast. Over 5 yards a carry? Mmhmmm.

29 Rashad Jennings Rashad Jennings Rashad Andre Jennings is an American football running back for the New York Giants of the National Football League.
30 Jonathan Stewart Jonathan Stewart Jonathan Creon Stewart is an American football running back for the Carolina Panthers of the National Football League.

He was a part of double trouble deangelo Williams. He showed me that he doesn't need deangelo to be great.

31 David Johnson David Johnson
32 Latavius Murray Latavius Murray Latavius Murray is an American football running back for the Oakland Raiders of the National Football League.
