In 2019, 15 running backs posted a 1000+ yards season. Will we get similar results in 2020? This offseason has been more geared towards the quarterbacks with a few legends headlining the free agency period. While most of the big-name RB’s have stayed put, this still should be a great season for teams looking to pound the rock.
What will Christian McCaffrey, Nick Chubb, Miles Sanders, Dalvin Cook, and others do when the season kicks off? Will we get another 2000 yard rusher? Will someone top Derrick Henry’s 2019 total?
In 2018, there was just nine running backs who went over 1000 yards. While the increase was good a year later, it now opens up the debate if this is indeed still a QBs league or not.
Here are 3 running backs to keep an eye out for in 2020.
