Just like how EA Sports revealed the Madden 15 player ratings for the top five quarterbacks yesterday, the football simulation company has just released today’s Madden 15 player ratings for the top five running backs within the NFL. The barrier for entry is a lot higher behind the line of scrimmage, as the lowest-ranked player still boasts a 95 overall.
Different physiques in running backs means different types of stats being bolstered up above others. For example, one might benefit more from better stiff arm skills and carry ratings than others. Some might benefit from more speed, agility and acceleration to improve their rankings. Others can operate as a ball carrier and as a catch, with catch and elusiveness improving their standings among runningbacks.
With that, here are the top five running backs in the NFL, according to the Madden 15 player ratings.
