Quarterbacks are breaking records left and right in the pass-happy NFL, but that makes high-caliber running backs all the more valuable. Many of last season’s top performers appear on this list, but keep in mind there’s usually a major bust or two, likely due to the heavy workload of the position causing a hangover effect.

The 186 games played between the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears qualifies it as the oldest rivalry in the NFL. But the recent history suggests this series has devolved into a “rino,” a rivalry in name only.
The Green Bay Packers drafted Alabama running back Eddie Lacy in the second round of the draft in April to fix its problematic running game. The Packers have been in the top half of the NFL in rushing just once in Mike McCarthy’s seven years as head coach. Lacy, a big and powerful back, aims to fix that.
