    Every season the NFL sees old names continue to dominate, while new names pop up and wreck their fantasy football aspirations. HaW is no different, and we've seen some special running backs put up special numbers this season.

    1. Lache Seastrunk

    This guy was a free agent before the season began and scooped up by the Baltimore Ravens front office. Waived by the Dallas Cowboys in the offseason, it appeared no one would be interested in this kid until he was plucked from FA to a 1yr, $600k contract. That bought Baltimore more than they knew.

    In 15 games Seastrunk has produced 336 carries, 1879 yards and a whopping 22 TDs on the ground. Combine that with 40 receptions, 397 yards in the air and 4 TDs from Flacco and you've got 2276 yards from scrimmage and 26 touchdowns. In the famous words of Ice Cube, "Bow Down".

    2. Latavius Murray
    Due to the Raiders extraordinary season, Lache has to wonder if he'd be competing for the rushing crown if Murray didn't get to enjoy the bench as much as he has this season.

    Despite allowing backup running back Dri Archer to generate 577 yards on the ground, Murray has put up a whopping 1606 rushing yards in just 14 games... Only 271 less yards behind Lache despite carrying the ball 97 less times. Murray has become a special back.

    3. Eddie Lacy.
    The Packers have been dominant all season, and there is no doubt the bruising style that Eddie brings has been a big part of that. Where Murray and Seastrunk are agile and elusive, Lacy runs with the sort of "Bring it on" swagger than makes opponents doubt themselves.

    15 games. 1572 yards. 13 touchdowns. It's no doubt that Lacy forces defenses to play honest, and honestly? They can't stop him anyways.

    4. Lesean McCoy. It's an Eagle! No it's a Bill! No, it's a Cowboy baby.
    If you can't beat 'em, join em. Nothing makes McCoy happier than being able to run all over the Philadelphia Eagles twice a year and show Chip Kelly he's not at all mad about being unceremoniously traded to the Bills to get a huge new contract to be traded by Keller almost immediately to RaiderRed90. Not at all.

    15 games. 1519 rushing yards. Add 32 receptions for 319 more yards and McCoy has been an absolute beast for the Cowboys this year.

    5. Arian Foster
    Arian has done something this season in HaW that he can't seem to in real life: Stay healthy. Arian has been a machine for the Texans this year, putting up 1414 yards in 14 games. You read that right.1414... in 14. 226 yards receiving ain't bad either.

    Showing himself to be the best back in the AFC South is an impressive feat for the 29 yr old back, making him the oldest RB on this list.

    Props to kjm007, XWarriorMonk, hskr8128, RaiderRed90 & RFF for an outstanding rushing season so far.
