Running backs just aren't that valuable anymore. Jonathan taylor missed some games and the colts were better than when he was healthy. Chubb might be the best running back in the league but when kareem hunt comes in there is no noticeable difference. Seahawks were rolling with penny then he gets hurt and they play a rookie who looks like he might now be the best running back in the league. Zeke elliot is worse than his backup tony pollard (statistically anyway)
Just rarely seems to matter all that much who play RB for any given team.

Yep, which is why the trade was braindead imo. If they were gonna package picks, do it right for someone like Ryan Tannehill (a clear upgrade over Jimmy G imo) to get you over the hump. Not saying Tennessee would do it. They wouldn’t imo. But that’s the type of guy who might be gettable and make a real difference.

I genuinely believe a team's offensive line has more impact on a running back's stats than the running back's skill.

There's some exceptions, but for the most part, good run-blocking = Great RB play, bad run-blocking = bad RB play. No matter who the RB is.

Agreed. Unless you’re Barry Sanders.

Agreed. Derrick henry is imo the best back in the league regardless of O-line but he still needs a hole before he gets all that power and speed going.

Unless, of course, you’re the Jets and Breece Hall. Dude was literally the offense. And now he’s out with an ACL.

Ya and now carter will probably pick up where he left off. As long as that o-line opens holes, the next running back will run through them too.

I did Hurts to win mvp before the season. $100 to win $2,400. He’ll come in 2nd or 3rd.

And I put $20 to win $1,420 that it will be a Eagles-Bills Super Bowl.

No way either happen. I’ve come in 2nd and so close on futures like this so many times it’s ridiculous.

I genuinely believe you will win that second bet.
