Madden 22's best RBs stand tall as the most dynamic in the position.

Running backs are important to a team's offensive plan. Establishing the run means players can then open up the passing and play action game. Additionally, if the defense fails to stop the run in any capacity, the offense can continue to just bulldoze its way to the red zone and eventually the end zone.

That being said, there are five RBs that are heads and shoulders above the competition. Here's a look at the five best in the position in the newly released Madden 22.

Madden 22 Best RBs: The 5 Best Running Backs in the Game

5. Alvin Kamara - 94 - New Orleans Saints

Alvin Kamara exploded onto the NFL scene in 2017 as a rookie with 13 total touchdowns and over 1,500 all-purpose yards. Since then, it's been nothing but uphill for one of the best in the game. Kamara's best game yet came last year when he scored six touchdowns against the Minnesota Vikings. He's been a Pro Bowler every year in his young NFL career.

4. Dalvin Cook - 95 - Minnesota Vikings

Dalvin Cook was in the same rookie class as Kamara, but it's taken the Florida State player a little longer to establish himself as a top RB in the league. 2020 was his best season yet netting 16 rushing TDs and over 1,900 APY. Cook is primed for another big year as he continues to cement himself as a perennial Pro Bowler.

3. Nick Chubb - 96 - Cleveland Browns

Nick Chubb was drafted in 2018, the same year as Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield. The two have grown together throughout their time in Cleveland with Chubb proving to be the top option at RB for Mayfield. Chubb has been a Pro Bowler for two consecutive years and is rated as the third best overall RB in Madden 22. He's got top tier speed, acceleration, carrying and more.

2. Derrick Henry - 96 - Tennessee Titans

Many are surprised to see Derrick Henry rated second-highest in the position in Madden 22. Henry has played a big part in Tennessee's rise over the past two years alongside quarterback Ryan Tannehill. He posted his best stats of his young career in 2020 with 2,027 rushing yards and 17 TDs. He is a straight up bulldozer and any defender caught trying to tackle him in open field is in trouble.

1. Christian McCaffrey - 97 - Carolina Panthers

Coming in at the top spot is Christian McCaffrey. The Stanford product had his 2020 season cut short because of injury which ended up being devastating for the Panthers. He was coming off an MVP-caliber season with 2,392 yards from scrimmage and 19 total TDs. He's without a doubt the most dynamic player in the position, elite as both as a rusher and pass catcher. He earns the top spot at 97 overall.
