It’s a weird list. The top two backs are coming back from serious knee injuries that caused them to miss much or all of last season. The third-ranked back didn’t start last season. There’s only one player on the entire list who rushed for more than 1,000 yards last year. And that’s before you even get into the order of names there.
I’m not saying Athlon’s necessarily wrong, just that I’m not sure the conference is as strong at the position as it’s been recently. Your thoughts?
