The running back position is one of the most vital positions for NFL teams behind the quarterback.

These players can either support the team towards victory, or relieve their quarterback.

There are different running backs in the NFL, from elusive to power backs.

However, some of the NFL’s best running backs haven’t shined as brightly in 2021.

But 2022 is the season when they can reclaim their glory.

There are three running backs ready for a rebound in 2022.

3.Josh Jacobs

The Las Vegas Raiders got a steal with Josh Jacobs in the NFL Draft.

He showed in his rookie season how he can dominate the field.

In 13 games played during the 2019 season, Jacobs had 242 carries for 1,150 yards and seven touchdowns.

However, since that time, his rushing yards have declined.

But with Davante Adams in Las Vegas now, Jacobs can shine again as the defenses will focus on Adams.

While NFL fans might believe Las Vegas will turn into a pass-first team with their new wide receiver, they’d be wrong to do so.

Jacobs showed he could handle the burden of carrying the rock for Las Vegas.

Using it, along with the game pass, could benefit everyone on offense for the Raiders.

He can rack up yards easily if defenses focus too much on a Carr connection to Adams.

2. Christian McCaffrey

The Carolina Panthers have a great running back in Christian McCaffrey.

However, the running back suffered injuries that kept him out of the field in consecutive seasons.

But McCaffrey is ready to return to Carolina and help his team.

His underwater training was unique and could help him recover.

Anyone who has undergone underwater training knows the intensity of the movement against the surrounding water.

It helps build strength that regular training would not provide.

This is because of the resistance of the water to the movements of the person training underwater.

As McCaffrey trains in the harshest conditions, he shows his thirst to be himself again.

He will have to be in top form to help his Carolina team which is facing a difficult season.

However, he is ready for the call to become that top runner in 2022.

1. Derrick Henry

One of the best running backs in the NFL today is Derrick Henry.

However, his 2021 season was cut short after a foot injury.

But 2022 is the year Henry is looking to come back to dominate the football pitch.

His 2020 season saw him dominate with 2,027 rushing yards and 17 touchdowns in 16 games.

While he only played eight games in 2021, he still had 937 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns.

It shows that he is still a dominant force at running back, despite missing nine games.

With Henry back at 100%, expect him to return to over 2,000 rushing yards for the season.

He will always be the most important piece of the Titans offense for 2022, as the Titans lost top receivers Julio Jones and AJ Brown.

With quarterback Ryan Tannehill having new receivers in 2022, you can expect a healthy dose of Henry every game.

This bodes well for Henry and his return as the NFL’s top running back.
