10) C.J. Anderson, Denver Broncos
C.J. Anderson is another guy who came out of nowhere in 2014 and produced for the Denver Broncos. He is a very solid, reliable running back and would be a great addition to your team.
9) Matt Forte, Chicago Bears
Matt Forte is always in the top 10 because he is a good running back. The touchdown numbers are never high, but he has three straight 1,000 yard seasons and is very reliable.
8) Arian Foster, Houston Texans
When healthy, Arian Foster is a beast. He had a great 2014 season and still missed three games. I would take him without a doubt, but he does have question marks surrounding health.
7) DeMarco Murray, Philadelphia Eagles
DeMarco Murray did the Cowboys dirty and left for greener pastures in Philadelphia. Murray led the league in rushing behind the best offensive line in the NFL. He will still produce in 2015, but you can expect his numbers won’t be as good in 2015 as they were last year.
6) LeSean McCoy, Buffalo Bills
LeSean mcCoy was traded to Buffalo and is now the main guy for the Bills. We have seen running backs play well in Buffalo and you can expect McCoy to be the latest. I love this city for him to play in and I will personally draft him if I have the chance.
5) Marshawn Lynch, Seattle Seahawks
Beast Mode finds his way into the top five once again and is a deadly running back to have on your fantasy team. He gets a lot of touchdowns which is what you want and will rack up over 1,000 yards as well. Lynch has at least 11 touchdowns in each of the past four years.
4) Adrian Peterson, Minnesota Vikings
Adrian Peterson killed a lot of fantasy leagues in 2014, luckily not mine but is still worthy of a top five pick. Peterson seems to be back on track to lead the Vikings in rushing and you should draft him if you get the chance too.
3) Jamaal Charles, Kansas City Chiefs
Jamaal Charles is one of the best if not the best running back when he is healthy. That’s the key for him, to stay healthy. Kansas City will need Charles to be what he has been as of late, a high touchdown, high yards guy. Take him if you can.
2) Eddie Lacy, Green Bay Packers
Eddie Lacy has been a rock since coming into the league two years ago. Lacy has has two identical seasons, 1,100 yards plus rushing and 9 and 11 touchdowns respectively. Lacy may not be available by the time you draft, but if he is, take him because you will regret not doing it when he wrecks you in your head-to-head match-up.
1) La’Veon Bell, Pittsburgh Steelers
La’Veon Bell has a tremendous 2014 season. 1,361 yards and eight touchdowns. He also caught 83 balls for 854 yards and three receiving touchdowns. How many running backs do you know that can rush for over 1,300 yards and catch 83 passes as well. While he may be suspended and miss the first couple of games, draft him because he is the best running back in the NFL.
