Eight NFL Running Backs Poised For Big Years

The era of NFL teams basing their game plans on a star running back is long gone. Now you may see one or two teams do that, but running by committee and the emphasis on passing have taken over. But there are still some guys in the league who can flat out run the ball. In fact, there were 15 RBs who broke the 1,000 yard barrier last season, led by Jacksonville's Maurice Jones-Drew with 1,606.

So yes, there are some guys out there doing work and who you will want on your fantasy team. These 8 guys are must haves, and will be dominant in this coming season.

Now of course, injuries could change things, but let's all hope that doesn't happen. You also won't see Marshawn Lynch in here because I'm fairly certain he's going to miss a few games to start the year.
