Default The Most Valuable RB In The NFL?

Who is it?

Not 'who is the best', but who is the most valuable to their team?

With it now cemented as a passing/fantasy numbers league, it leaves the RB position looking less important than it ever has before, but you still need a running game to allow the passing game to be what it is. But, with more teams going for the committee backfield, using a number of backs to mix it up, just who is left as the most valuable RB in the league for their team?

A fit Foster with his pass catching skills? Shady McCoy who can do it all, or does Sproles reduce that importance this season? Charles at KC? Alfred Morris in Washington?

Which teams collapse without their star RB?

Who is the most 'valuable' RB in the NFL?

But is he the most valuable RB to his team (your team) in the NFL?

And, does McCoy become even more of a threat with Sproles in there?

McCoy for me. Could easily lead the league in just about any category open to a RB this year.

If the Chiefs don't have Jamaal Charles their offence is very very ordinary. It's hard to look past him being the most valuable RB to their team.

McCoy/Eagles have weapons elsewhere, as do Forte/Bears.

AP would be in the running, but i'll stick with Charles.

For me its a team who relies on the run game for success, Peterson was a classic example two years ago when he carried the Vikes to the play offs.

This season somebody like Ben Tate of the Browns springs to my mind. A run first offence, in a QB transition period possibly, and also losing their elite no1 receiver (possibly) to an extended suspension.

If Tate stays healthy, he'll be a work horse back this year. IF he stays healthy....

Terrance West will share the workload with Tate though.

As you say though, any team with a below average QB or QB transition has to lead the way in this discussion.

Its a difficult one, but any team without one of those top qb's a receiving corps will struggle when their rb goes down.

Doug Martin was a huge loss for us, we became very one dimensional at times.
