Every good team in Madden 21 needs a good running back.

So let’s take a look at who the best backs in Madden 21’s offline modes are!

How to choose the best running backs (HB) in Madden 21’s Franchise Mode

In this article, we are looking for the best running backs in Madden 21’s Franchise Mode. We don’t care about age, contract status, team, or anything but OVR here. These players are all listed with HB as their position. Let’s dive in!

Christian McCaffrey – 99 OVR

Team: Carolina Panthers

The latest member of the 99 Club, Christian McCaffrey is going to be a beast in Madden 21.

ANKLE BREAKER: McCaffrey’s X-Factor makes him deadly this year

With 92 speed and 93 acceleration he can break away from defenses, but it’s his 98 carrying combined with 97 agility, 96 juke move, and 92 spin move that makes him awesome in the open field.

He’s also got a position-best 82 catching and 83 short route running to be an elite receiving threat.

Derrick Henry – 93 OVR

Team: Tennessee Titans

Derrick Henry pounds his way into #2.

The Titans’ bruiser of a running back has great 91 speed with 88 acceleration and 87 strength to be a physical beast.

He has a monstrous 93 break tackle and 88 truck, but also a 98 stiff arm and 85 juke move.

Ezekiel Elliott – 92 OVR

Team: Dallas Cowboys

Ezekiel Elliott is a real do-it-all back.

The Cowboys star has 90 speed, 91 acceleration, and 80 strength. His 87 break tackle is paired with 72 catching to be strong both on the ground and as a receiver.

Nick Chubb – 92 OVR

Team: Cleveland Browns

Cleveland’s Nick Chubb is in at #4, somewhat surprisingly.

Dalvin Cook – 91 OVR

Team: Minnesota Vikings

In at #5 is Minnesota’s Dalvin Cook.

STIFFED: Bust your way through defenses with Dalvin Cook

Less of a receiver than some may like, Cook is still a very good running back. With 92 speed and 92 acceleration he has the burst to get away from the defense in a hurry.

With 87 carrying he will be a little more fumble-prone than others, but his 88 break tackle comes with 93 juke move and 89 spin move to baffle defenders.

Saquon Barkley – 91 OVR

Team: New York Giants

One of the biggest ratings snubs, Saquon Barkley is just 91 OVR this year.

GOING UP: Barkley has the athleticism to go around or over defenders

He is one of the best athletes in Madden 21 thanks to his 93 speed, 93 acceleration, and 96 agility. In the open field, Barkley has 91 break tackle, 94 juke move, 90 spin move, and 86 stiff arm.

He also has 75 catching and 74 short route running. He is much better than his OVR suggests.

Aaron Jones – 90 OVR
