Madden 22's fastest RBs aren't necessarily the best in the game when it comes to overall rating. They shine when it comes to speed and acceleration out of the backfield, whether that's on a rushing or passing play.

Speed is one of the most important statistics in Madden 22 as players want that extra burst to get around a defender in open space. And as mentioned, some players might immediately expect the highest rated RBs are the fastest. That's not the case as there are some players that might catch opponents off guard when it comes to explosiveness.

Here are the five fastest RBs in Madden 22 after launch.

Madden 22 Fastest RBs: 5 Fastest Running Backs in the Game

5. Jonathan Taylor - Indianapolis Colts - 93 SPD / 92 ACC

Second-year RB Jonathan Taylor is coming off a great rookie year as he continues to establish himself as the number one option in the backfield. He posted 1,169 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns his rookie year. With 93 speed and 92 acceleration, watch out if the ball is handed off to JT.

4. Nyheim Hines - Indianapolis Colts - 93 SPD / 93 ACC

Nyheim Hines might not be the first option out of the backfield for the Colts, but he's proven himself to be one of the fastest and a great weapon for Indianapolis. He's got 93 in both speed and acceleration, plus 91 in agility. He's fast, he gets to top speed quickly and can adjust in open field.

3. Matt Breida - Buffalo Bills - 94 SPD / 93 ACC

Breida beats out both Colts RBs with one extra point in speed. The former San Francisco 49ers player had a down year in 2020 playing for the Miami Dolphins. In a backfield that already has Devin Singletary and Zack Moss, Breida has elite speed in Madden 22 providing a great option for those using the Bills.

2. Kene Nwangwu - Minnesota Vikings - 94 SPD / 95 ACC

Kene Nwangwu is the only rookie to appear in this list coming in with top tier speed and acceleration. The fourth round pick out of Iowa State comes into a backfield that already has Dalvin Cook. Pairing a top five RB with a top five fastest RB is a recipe for success.

1. Raheem Mostert - San Francisco 49ers - 97 SPD / 96 ACC

There are few players in the league who have the explosive playmaking ability that Mostert has. He dealt with injuries throughout the 2020 season after establishing himself during the 49ers run to the Super Bowl a season prior. Still, Mostert stands tall as the fastest in the game when it comes to speed, acceleration and agility.

There are some other notable mentions including Phillip Lindsay, Tony Pollard, Austin Ekeler and number one overall RB Christian McCaffrey. Madden 22 is available now.
