Madden 15 Top 5 RBs – Ratings Debate
With all of the controversy that the Rookies and Top QB ratings, I think EA’s Donny Moore might have nailed the RB ratings, well at least the order. It could be that they are just easier to rate and that there are very few elite Running Backs in the league but these 5 are definitely the best 5 running backs in the league in my opinion.
Here are the top 5 Running Back in Madden NFL 15:
The only problem I have with this is not the order but maybe some of the ratings for the running backs.
Let’s start with “Beast Mode” Marshawn Lynch, I don’t have a problem with the 99 Truck and 99 Stamina and 97 Carry, but I’m real interested to see where his speed is. I’m betting his speed is about a 90. It shouldn’t be any higher than that.
I really like Matt Forte, out of these 5 Running Backs he doesn’t get enough credit for what he can do and if you are doing a fantasy draft you can probably get him late in the 2nd round cause he literally goes unnoticed. He doesn’t fumble and he has a real good catch rating that make him deadly in the passing game as well.
Is Jamaal Charles really as fast as Chris Johnson now? That’s my only question about him.
McCoy is a lethal weapon in the backfield and teamed up with Sproles; who I think will be in the Top 15 of RBs, that Eagles backfield is going to be very dynamic. The blog didn’t say how fast McCoy was but I’m guessing he’s a 94 Speed, because he was that at the last of last season in Madden 25.
What can you say about Adrian Peterson? This dude has been the top running back for a while now and although other running backs are getting better and closing that gap, “All Day” is still a beast. AP doesn’t ranked first in anything except for Strength, but is Top 5 in every other category. With AP in the backfield anything is possible and should be getting a lot of carries if you are running with the Vikings this year.
What do you think? You agree with these top 5 RBs and if so, who is 6-10?
