Fantasy Review: Top Running Backs of 2013

Jamaal CharlesThe 2013 season is in the books, and in many ways it was a season of statistical transition for the running back position. The pounding style may be waning while backs who can thrive as receivers out of the back field seem to be rising to the surface in the modern NFL that is very pass friendly. Throughout the offseason, I’ll be looking at position and production comparisons. For now, let’s take a look at top producers. Below you’ll find the top running backs of 2013 in terms of fantasy production. (Both standard and PPR formats are available, and the table is sortable)
