Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was recently voted in as the second-best running in the league according to the NFL's Top-100 list, but the people over at EA Sports went a little bit further in their praise. According to Madden16's rating system, Marshawn Lynch is the best back in the NFL, with an overall rating of 96. As they say,
Beast Mode starts with league-best 99 Stiff Arm, 98 Trucking, and 89 Strength. Would you believe 94 Juke Move? Add Lynch's 91 ELUS/88 ACC/85 SPD and you have a one-man wrecking crew.
The stiff arm makes total sense, as does the "trucking", but the 94 Juke Move pays Lynch his due for underrated short-area elusiveness.
Check out what EA Sports had to say about the other top-rated running backs in the NFL here. Adrian Peterson came in second on the list with an overall rating of 95, followed up closely by Jamaal Charles (94), Le'Veon Bell (94), and DeMarco Murray (94).
