Madden 20 Running Back Stats Explained

And there you have it, the list of the best running backs on offer in Madden 20. Are there any surprises for you on the list? It's easy to forget how LeSean McCoy used to be by far the quickest HB in the league just a matter of years ago. No surprises at the top of the list though, as Todd Gurley and Ezekiel Elliott rightfully claim the number one and two spots respectively, beating out Le'Veon Bell after the latter missed the entirety of the last NFL season.

But what makes a good running back in Madden 20? For starters, look at the stats for each player that we chose to showcase in the table above. You might not think it, but awareness is actually a really crucial stat for any player that's going to be carrying the ball, as it allows them to see incoming players sooner and steel themselves against tacklers.

Speed is obviously paramount for any player in Madden 20, let alone a running back. Although it's not absolutely crucial for your HB to be the quickest player on the field, it certainly helps if they can outrun any cornerbacks and safeties in the backfield once they break through your opponent's defensive front.

And finally, there's the carrying stat for pretty obvious reasons. The basic rule here is that the higher the carrying stat for a player, the less likely they are to fumble the ball upon being tackled. In addition to this, a solid carrying stat also drastically decreases the chances of your HB dropping the ball after being handed it by the QB on a toss or draw play. It's a small stat for a running back, but it's crucial.
