A couple of days ago, I brought up the insane season DeMarco Murray has been having so far. So, today, to kick-off Week 7 (I know, it’s depressing it’s almost the halfway point…we won’t dwell on it) we’re going to take a look at the NFL’s top ten rushing leaders to date this year.
1. No surprise that Murray holds today’s No. 1 spot with 785 rushing yards. The man is basically a team in and of himself.
2. The Pittsburgh Steelers’ Le'Veon has rushed for 542 yards so far this season.
3. Arian Foster, RB for the Houston Texans, has 513 rushing yards to this point of the 2014 season.
4. One of my favorite backs, the Philadelphia Eagles’ LeSean McCoy takes today’s No. 4 spot. Shady has racked-up 422 rushing yards.
5. Justin Forsett, RB for the Baltimore Ravens, has 408 total rushing yards in the first 6 games of 2014.
6. The San Francisco 49ers’ Frank Gore has rushed for 403 yards already this year.
7. The Chicago Bears’ Matt Forte, the league’s reception leader, has also rushed for 399 yards.
8. Rashad Jennings, New York Giants RB, is just shy of Forte with 396 yards so far in 2014.
9. Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris is holding his own with 386 rushing yards this season.
10. Rounding out today’s top ten is the Cincinnati Bengals’ Giovani Bernard, who has rushed for 384 yards during the 2014 season.
