The NFL is blessed with a number of amazing running backs in 2021—so the same can be said for their digital counterparts in Madden NFL 21.
While a fast-moving QB can dominate a game, a solid running back option can make all the difference to keep your opponent on their heels and guessing what’s coming next. Play-action passes are only as good as your HB.
These days, a good running back has to have speed, strength, and the ability to catch passes out of the backfield. Versatility is the name of the game in both the NFL and Madden.
These are the guys you want to have the ball in their hands on a critical third down. Here are the best halfbacks in Madden NFL 21.
Christian McCaffrey (Carolina Panthers)
Nick Chubb (Cleveland Browns)

Dalvin Cook (Minnesota Vikings)
