If you have talked to me in any depth about running backs, you probably know that I’m not very high on the position. In order for running backs to be successful, it takes a good scheme to get them the ball and at least five guys up front doing their job. Regardless, I’m going to attempt to break down my top starting running backs in the the AFC North:
4. James Conner, Steelers
It’s impossible not to like James Conner, and I would love to slot him higher on this list. Conner is a hard-nosed runner that excels between the tackles.
