Ranking All 32 NFL Starting Running Backs From Worst To Best

32. Marlon Mack


2017 Stats: 93 carries, 358 rushing yards (3.8 yards per carry), 3 rushing touchdowns, 21 catches, 225 receiving yards, 1 receiving touchdown
Career Stats: 93 carries, 358 rushing yards (3.8 yards per carry), 3 rushing touchdowns, 21 catches, 225 receiving yards, 1 receiving touchdown

Any hope the Colts have for a good season rides on the arm and health of Andrew Luck. But if Luck performs up to his lofty ability, the pressure will then fall on Mack. Following a forgettable rookie season, Mack looks to take a firm grasp of the featured back role. A torn labrum prevented Mack from reaching his full potential his rookie season, but the now-healthy back is primed to take on a bigger role. The Colts hope he can improve on his 3.8 yards per carry and provide their offense with another reliable weapon.

31. Devontae Booker


2017 Stats: 79 carries, 299 rushing yards (3.8 yards per carry), 1 rushing touchdown, 30 catches, 275 receiving yards
Career Stats: 253 carries, 911 rushing yards (3.6 yards per carry), 5 rushing touchdowns, 61 catches, 540 receiving yards, 1 receiving touchdown

Booker entered last season as a trendy pick to be a productive back for the Broncos. C.J. Anderson’s solid season limited Booker to the backup role, but with Anderson gone, it is now time for Booker to take charge. The third-year back has excelled at every level prior to the NFL, and has the confidence to become Denver’s featured back. Rookie Royce Freeman may challenge Booker for snaps, but Booker’s experience and ability should propel him into the starting role.
