1. RB Ezekiel Elliott — Dallas Cowboys (2016)
Zeke was an absolute monster in college. He ran for over 1800 yards and 18 touchdowns as a sophomore, leading the Buckeyes to a national championship. Then he bested those numbers the following season, topping 1800 yards again and going for 23 touchdowns, and he did it in two fewer games.
The Dallas Cowboys snatched Ezekiel Elliott up with the fourth pick in the 2016 draft and unleashed him upon the NFL, and Zeke continued to eat. He led the league with 322 carries and 1631 yards for the league’s most fearsome rushing attack, finding the endzone 16 times as a rookie. Elliott was suspended for six games in 2017 over accusations of domestic violence but almost reached 1000 rushing yards anyway, and he bounced back to lead the league again with 1434 yards in 2018. He’s led the NFL in rushing yards per game all three seasons as a professional and is almost certainly the best runner in the entire league.
