The running back is an important part of any effective NFL offense.

A great running game opens up the offense. It takes the pressure off the quarterback and forces the defense to make tough decisions. It’s also good to have a strong running attack in goal-line situations where even one yard comes at a premium.

The NFL is filled with excellent running backs who are a combination of speed, strength, and catching ability that make them true multi-level threats.

Whether it’s quick play, Ultimate Team, or franchise mode, here are the best running backs in Madden 22 by rating.
