There was much transisiton (AKA flops) in running backs last year and a number of first-time stars. Even though Knowshon Moreno shared the stage at times he was still one of the most consistent of any runner. Eddie Lacy showed up well as did Ryan Mathews who finally played well once all expectations had been dropped. Ray Rice had a disasterous season and it shows up in these rankings. Fred Jackson just won't fade away while Alfred Morris seemed to be disappointing but was top ten in consistently give back 10 points or more.
