The King may be aging, but he is still one of the most efficient runners in football. It’s going to be a big year for him after a foot injury that took the entire second half of his 2021 season.

Cook is one of the most talented running backs in the game and the protagonist of the Viking attack. Injury issues aside, he has amazing talent when he’s on the field.

Naji Harris, Pittsburgh Steelers

Despite a porous offensive line and the dead body of Ben Roethlisberger leading the charge, Harris still gained 1,200 yards. He is a weapon between tackles and as a receiver.

Injuries have taken their toll on his career, but Barkley is still one of the most dynamic playmakers in the NFL.

Austin Ekeler, Los Angeles Chargers

Ekeler has taken a strong lead in 2021 and should still be the backfield leader with Justin Herbert at center.

Zeke is likely in the last phase of his career after just passing 1,000 yards in 2021. This could be a decisive campaign for the former fourth overall pick.

Javonte Williams, Denver Broncos

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Everyone’s favorite running back. Williams could have been much higher on this list had he been given the keys to the backfield during his second season. Only Jonathan Taylor has more missed tackles than Williams in 2021.

Antonio Gibson, Washington Commanders

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Commanders don’t seem to have any intention of making Gibson a three-point defender, but he’s electrifying, athletic, and a weapon in the passing game.

Miles Sanders, Philadelphia Eagles

Despite not scoring a touchdown in 2021, Sanders has been extremely effective, averaging 5.5 yards per carry.

Damien Harris, New England Patriots

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

As long as he’s with the Patriots, Harris will be part of the committee. However, in 2021, he threw 15 rushing touchdowns and averaged 5.0 yards per carry.

Josh Jacobs, Las Vegas Raiders

Distribution: Star of Indianapolis

His time in Las Vegas may be coming to an end after 2021, and while he has thrown 21 touchdowns over the last two seasons, his averages are 4.0 and 3.9 yards per throw, respectively.

Clyde Edwards-Heler, Kansas City Chiefs

Danny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

CEH didn’t quite live up to being the best running back taken in 2020, but he will have a chance to take over running back in 2022.

Travis Etienne, Jacksonville Jaguars

Jacen Vinlow-USA TODAY Sports

Étienne missed his rookie season due to Lisfranc’s pre-season injury.

Marlon Mack, Houston Texans

The former Colts running back will compete against fourth-round rookie Dameon Pierce for a starting role in the Texans’ backfield.
