Guide by Hirun Cryer, .

In this Madden 18 HB Ratings Guide, we've rounded up all the very best running backs that you can find in the base version of the game, when it launches in August 2017.

If you need position rakings of other players in Madden 18, don't hesitate to head over to our Madden 18 player rankings guide, where you can find rankings for the likes of quarterbacks, tight ends, wide receivers, and even more of the most important positions on the field.

A good running back can be the key to victory in Madden, particularly given EA's recent trend towards making the HB the more dominant force in gameplay. While it's true that the HB will nearly always depend on a good O-line for success, a standout HB will always have an impact in a game of Madden, no matter the players they're surrounded by.

Madden 18 Best HB Ratings Guide

Throughout the guide just below, you'll find all the very best Madden 18 running backs, including the likes of Ezekiel Elliot, Le'Veon Bell, and Jay Ajayi. The obvious exception to the list is Marshawn Lynch, who only recently came out of retirement to play for the Raiders, and as such, Lynch doesn't have a Madden 18 player rating as of right now.

The runnings back listed above are the best available in the game at launch, according to the official Madden 18 HB ratings. Based on the individual statistics below each player, you can determine for yourself which running back you'll go to come late August when the game releases, based on agility, awareness, speed, and more. We'll be updating the list as the season progresses, as EA are always changing player rankings to reflect real life performances week upon week.
