Every year the NFL lists the top 100 players who were voted by players as a means of respect for what they do on the field. Some of those players don’t even have to play the whole season to get on this list. Adrian Peterson was on the 2017 list and missed the entire season. Since this article will be solely based on running backs currently mentioned on the 2018 list, it is a crying shame that Chicago Bears running back Jordan Howard is missing.
So far on this list are RB Carlos Hyde, rookie Leonard Fournette, Mark Ingram, Ezekiel Elliott (suspension and all), and Devonta Freeman. The fact of the matter is that in 2017, nine running backs were on that list, including Peterson; LeGarrette Blount, Jay Ajayi, Freeman, DeMarco Murray, LeSean McCoy, David Johnson, Le’Veon Bell, and Elliott.
